The legendary rogue of the seven seas confronts a new assortment of dangers and thrills in this animated action-adventure tale. Sinbad (voice of Brad Pitt) and his crews of pirate adventurers are hoping to retire to Fiji, and they discover a treasure that could make that possible -- the Book of Peace, which has kept the Twelve Cities in harmony for centuries. But Sinbad's plan to snatch the magic book is complicated when he learns it's on board a ship captained by his longtime friend Proteus

Bland music, marquee-friendly casting and crassly contemporary dialogue give this film the mechanical feel of a marketing exercise, not a movie.
Business-as-usual movie that isn't trying to make anything more than a medium-size splash.
It's less the story of Sinbad than a compilation of greatest hits from Mythland.
A movie carefully engineered for an audience of exactly nobody.
The effects are competent, the action has exciting moments and the story is interesting enough, but the parts don't add up to a compelling sum.
An efficiently amusing and unsurprisingly polished blend of traditional hand-drawn and computer-generated animation techniques.
A visually exhilarating mix of hand-drawn and computer-generated images that sets sail with a rather mediocre and clichéd script.
As routine as many live-action adventure films, right down to the competent but fairly undistinguished art and animation.
Handily outdoes [Treasure Planet], with bravura action set pieces, a surprisingly complex romantic triangle, and thoughtful exploration of moral issues and character.
While younger kids will enjoy the magic and adventure, the real mystery is whether older audiences will respond as well.
Even the voices of Brad Pitt, Michelle Pfeiffer and Catherine Zeta-Jones can't save this movie from just feeling "blah..."
It's a decent summer distraction for restless little ones, but not much more.
For all of its freedom of movement, the film lacks real personality, and in parts, it's oddly serious-minded.
... entertains and fully exploits all the accomplishments DreamWorks' animation department has made to this point... "Sinbad" stands as an accomplishment all on its own.
