Audience Reviews for Captain Sinbad

Imagine the Flash Gordon shorts from the 30's with color and you have a general idea of what to expect from this movie, except the special effects from the 30's were better. The first thing you have to talk about are the special effects, which are bad and cheap. These are paper mache monsters operated by guys pulling on wires, sadly you can see the wires and the eye-rings in the monsters. I always did like Guy Williams in the Lost in Space TV show but you can tell he did not improve much over this although I imagine that it took as much skill not to laugh in all the scenes as anything. The story is an Arabian Knights type tale with an evil ruler who has captured the "princess" and its up to Sindbad to save her. The twist is that the ruler has magically put his heart in some type of giant gem which is stored at the top of a impregnable tower guarded by a giant hand. This is the type of movie, back in the day, that your local TV station would show on a Saturday afternoon during the summer and as a 10 year old it would be glorious. There is a cheese factor that can be enjoyed because of its innocence in production and script. There are many parts that as an adult we can laugh at it but in the end we are taken back to summer vacation as a 10 year old in front of the TV with our fort made of couch cushions drinking a Coke with a bag of chips.
