PROFANITY: None SEX/NUDITY: None VIOLENCE: Lots of swordplay but no one is shown being killed. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: LOTS of incredible animated action. COMEDY: It's not as funny as some other animated movies but I felt it had enough humor.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
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.''
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.''
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 OnlineFull
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 OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
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.
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.
