Captain Sinbad's death-defying battles with stop-motion monsters began with 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad', in which he fights against mad magicians and giant, cuddly cyclopses.
The adventure must have really done him in, because he took some time off, leaving Jason and the Argonauts to hold the baton for a while, fighting hideous harpies and very cleverly animated skeletons.
Now though, Sinbad has recovered, and he's ready to crack himself some stop-motion skull!
'The Golden Voyage of Sinbad' is every bit as fun and entertaining as 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad' or 'Jason and the Argonauts'. One cannot of course, talk about these films for very long, without mentioning the incredible visual effects from the monster-meister himself; Ray Harryhausen!
This film features some really amazing work, the most note-worthy being, in my opinion, the six-armed statue which is bought to life for a deadly sword-fight with Captain Sinbad. Six arms - talk about harsh!
Some people may laugh at the slightly dated look of the effects nowerdays, but one must bare in mind that computer generated monstrosities were still a long way off into the future when this was made. With this in mind, I cannot help but marvel at the time and patience that must have gone into the making and animation of the monsters and other effects in this film.
'The Golden Voyage of Sinbad' features a new actor to play the intrepid hero - in the form of John Phillip Law. He is pitted against an evil magician (yes, another one!), who is played by Tom Baker. Tom Baker is of course, probably most famous for playing the mysterious Time-Lord in the BBC TV series; 'Doctor Who'. Tom Baker makes a great evil magician with his rolling voice, and his mad, staring eyes!

Here is a little, smart and funny fantasy movie, inspired by the classic Arabian tale of Sinbad the Sailor.

It has no other pretentions that to give you nice relax time with a story of a hero, a villain (and he is a real piece of art, this particular villain), some (really nasty) monsters, a (quite smart) riddle, a perilous journey, a secret island and a hot (really hot) chick in slave outfit. This is a movie you can watch alone or with your date and with your kids as well, providing there are seven years old or more.

Special effects by Ray Harryhausen are still working well and the monsters are more credible than not - after all it is not a hasard that in "Monsters, Inc" Pixar bowed to his talent by naming the most famous restaurant in monster's world "Harryhausen's". The bad guy (warlock prince Koura) is REALLY bad, Sinbad is quite likeable and the usual hot chick in slave outfit is VERY watchable.

The final sword fight is quite smart and unique - because one of the fighters progressively becomes invisible... quite a nice idea. And the way the final duel ends is quite a smart surprise, even for the most hardened fan of fantasy movies. You will also probably like the goddess Kali doing a short apparition as a showgirl... well, she couldn't help it, she was stoned. You will understand this joke better in the middle of the movie.

All in all, it is a little pleasure for a relaxing evening, with popcorn, beer - and if possible, a hot chick in slave outfit on your side.

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad is directed by Gordon Hessler and stars John Phillip Law (Sinbad), Tom Baker, Caroline Munro, Douglas Wilmer, Takis Emmanuel & Martin Shaw. It includes a score by composer Miklós Rózsa and features stop-motion effects from Ray Harryhausen (this one in Dynarama). It's the second of three Sinbad films that Harryhausen made for Columbia, the others being The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958) and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977). The plot sees legendary sailor Sinbad come into possession of a tablet dropped onto his ship by a mysterious flying creature. The tablet is one part of a map which greatly intrigues Sinbad so he wears it as an amulet. However, the tablet was bound for evil magician Koura (Baker) who now wants it back as it will lead to The Fountain Of Destiny. Can Sinbad, aided by the Grand Vizier Of Marabia (Wilmer), fend off Koura before he gets the rewards from the fountain to use for his evil ways?

A smooth adventure piece that's low on plotting but high on magical mystery fervour. More known for directing horror films, Hessler does an admirable job in not letting the thin story bog the movie down. Sometimes with Harryhausen led movies the stop-motion creations end up being the sole reason for watching the film. And while, as always, they are the best thing in this movie, they give the film an Arabian Nights feel to the piece, managing to charm and engage enough to round it out as a full film viewing experience. Yes the cast are sub-standard B listers, with John Law and Munro featuring, one thinks, for looks (cool beard and turban look) and bosom (whoosh!) respectively. While Tom Baker's pantomime villain act could never become tiring; such is the fun he and the audience are having with it.
