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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.
