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.
From the cheerfully anachronistic dialogue by Gladiator scribe John Logan to the spirited voice work by Michelle Pfeiffer, Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the non-visual elements of the film are great, swashbuckling fun.
Fantastic images aside, Sinbad isn't much more than the tale of a 'bad' guy getting in touch with his good side, as well as a love story that makes monster-loving little boys go 'yuck!' And that's what's too bad about Sinbad.
