Movie Info

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 … More

Critic Reviews for Sinbad - Legend of the Seven Seas

All Critics (128) | Top Critics (37) | Fresh (56) | Rotten (66) | DVD (9)

Bland music, marquee-friendly casting and crassly contemporary dialogue give this film the mechanical feel of a marketing exercise, not a movie.

July 8, 2003
New York Post
Top Critic

Ray Harryhausen's original stop-motion Sinbad classics are a hard act to follow, but Tim Johnson and Patrick Gilmore's update, couched in a gorgeous palette of indigo and dark rose, is a big, beautiful thrill all its own.

L.A. Weekly

Business-as-usual movie that isn't trying to make anything more than a medium-size splash.

July 8, 2003
Washington Post
Top Critic

It's less the story of Sinbad than a compilation of greatest hits from Mythland.

Denver Rocky Mountain News
Top Critic

A movie carefully engineered for an audience of exactly nobody.

July 2, 2003
Washington Post
Top Critic

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.

Fun, if standard, animated adventure with battles, innuendo.

Full Review… | December 28, 2010
Common Sense Media

Despite its flaws, this is a fun well-acted piece of escapist fare with action, romance, adventure, and monsters galore.

Full Review… | April 29, 2009
Cinema Crazed

A visually exhilarating mix of hand-drawn and computer-generated images that sets sail with a rather mediocre and clichéd script.

Full Review… | August 7, 2008
Sacramento News & Review

As routine as many live-action adventure films, right down to the competent but fairly undistinguished art and animation.

Full Review… | January 3, 2005

Handily outdoes [Treasure Planet], with bravura action set pieces, a surprisingly complex romantic triangle, and thoughtful exploration of moral issues and character.

Decent Films Guide

While younger kids will enjoy the magic and adventure, the real mystery is whether older audiences will respond as well.

Full Review… | January 3, 2004

Even the voices of Brad Pitt, Michelle Pfeiffer and Catherine Zeta-Jones can't save this movie from just feeling "blah..."

EDGE Boston

It's a decent summer distraction for restless little ones, but not much more.

September 6, 2003
Las Vegas Weekly

For all of its freedom of movement, the film lacks real personality, and in parts, it's oddly serious-minded.

Full Review… | August 30, 2003

... entertains and fully exploits all the accomplishments DreamWorks' animation department has made to this point... "Sinbad" stands as an accomplishment all on its own.

Full Review… | August 18, 2003

Dreamworks animation has a lot to live up to after Shrek, but this wacky and high-spirited version of the Sinbad legend really isn't too bad.

Full Review… | August 5, 2003

This is not the kind of movie that keeps our hopes alive for a successful return of the standard animated feature.

Full Review… | July 29, 2003

If you drag a gang along to this one, be prepared to make amends with a trip to Pirates of the Caribbean.

Full Review… | July 25, 2003

There's much to like here -- a gag-filled script, impressive visuals and Michelle Pfeiffer's classy villainess.

Full Review… | July 22, 2003

Feature length films should no longer be hand drawn if the studios want the public to shell out fifty bucks to take the family to see them on the big screen.

The kids will like its simplicity and manic motion, but if you want more than that, you won't find it here.

July 17, 2003
Palo Alto Weekly

A lot of fun and a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure which, though not on the level of the Disney classics, is nonetheless worth watching. Recommended.

Full Review… | July 16, 2003

The story of Sinbad is a classic. If you're going to tackle a classic, make it an enduring tribute to the original.

Os personagens são terrivelmente caricaturais - e não estou me referindo ao visual, e sim às suas personalidades.

A dazzling animated action feature with a solid story and interesting characters, aimed at a more sophisticated audience.

Audience Reviews for Sinbad - Legend of the Seven Seas


Haha RT, really? 46%? I love it when critics just get things wrong.

Sinbad is one of the few animated movies out there to approach the genre with a morally open story/protagonist and a sophisticated, convincing romance.

The film's obviously targeted at young adults, teens unwilling to put up with the patronization of Disney films but still yearn for a beautifully animated and competent fantasy journey.

The biggest folly is the completely one dimensional storytelling, I wish Proteus's point of view played a larger role in the grand scheme of things as Sinbad's journey just seems redundant after the first couple of action sequences.

Also, just watch Eris move, she's meant to be animated.
