Above Average

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "The film moves at a brisk pace, even though, upon closer examination, it's not really going anywhere. There are some brilliant animated action sequences, but these are counterbalanced by a lack of imagination in many of the "ordinary" scenes.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "That it works is because of the high-energy animation, some genuinely beautiful visual concepts and a story that's a little more sensuous than we expect in animation.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "Sinbad is a swashbuckling adventure saga that probably will appeal more to older kids. But it's not a wondrous tale. 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.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "The characters are mostly flat and unoriginal — Sinbad's bull mastiff, Spike, bears an uncanny resemblance to Percy, the pooch from Disney's POCAHONTAS (1995) — but Pfeiffer delivers a wonderfully villainous voice performance.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We weren't able to collect a lot of opinions for this movie because it just wasn't well attended. That's a shame because I thought it was a very entertaining movie as did most of those we collected opinions from. The opinions are very good but certainly not great, so it's unlikely to become a classic, but don't let that stop you from seeing Sinbad. It's a very entertaining animated adventure the entire family will enjoy.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Sinbad (Brad Pitt), the most daring and notorious rogue ever to sail the seven seas, has spent his life asking for trouble, and trouble has finally answered…in a big way. Framed for stealing one of the world's most priceless and powerful treasures—the Book of Peace—Sinbad has one chance to find and return the precious book, or his best friend Proteus (Joseph Fiennes) will die. Sinbad decides not to take that chance and instead sets a course for the fun and sun of the Fiji Islands.
But the best laid plans…

Proteus' beautiful betrothed, Marina (Catherine Zeta-Jones), has stowed away on Sinbad's ship, determined to make sure that Sinbad fulfills his mission and saves Proteus' life. Now the man who put the "bad" in Sinbad is about to find out how bad bad can be. It's never a good thing when Eris (Michelle Pfeiffer), the goddess of chaos, has it out for you, and Eris lives up to her name—dispatching both monstrous creatures and the elements to do battle with Sinbad along the way. There is even mutiny afoot—times four—when Sinbad's loyal dog Spike switches allegiances. Adding insult to injury, the crew has decided they like taking orders from Marina…better than from Sinbad.
