The film starts off in modern day and time (1989) with a mother reading Arabian nights to her daughter. The moms voiceover is constant throughout the film narrating the WHOLE story. This film would have been more interesting IF we were seeing and listening to the dialogue between Sinbad and his sailor. Instead we get a nauseating female narrating throughout this very enjoyable film
As the mother reads the Arabian nights book, then film then starts to visually show us the viewers whats on the written page.
Sinbad is well made with some nice special effects/ optics and set designs. I particularly liked ‘Skull moutain’. There are some very good action fight sequences.
Lou ferignos voice is dubbed over. Sinbad is visually very good. The MGM dvd transfer is also clean and crisp.
there is one trailer included on the DVD.
A good family film.
There is one gap/ flaw in this film- what happens to ‘Suckkra’ the Amazon witch helping jaffar?
