School in the fall.
“Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas” is about Sinbad (voiced by Brad
Pitt), who is framed and sentenced to die for stealing the Book of
Peace, which protects and keeps peace among the Twelve Nations. His
friend, Proteus (Joseph Fiennes), takes his place so Sinbad can get
the book back from the evil Goddess of Chaos, Eris (Michelle
Proteus’ girlfriend, Marina (Catherine Zeta-Jones), goes on the
voyage with him to make sure he returns. They battle everything from
mystical singing sea ladies to monstrous snow birds.
This action adventure is a mix of computer-generated and classic
animation. The sea monster in the beginning of the movie looks like a
real giant octopus-type sea monster.
I liked the movie because of its actors and effects. Pfeiffer was
very good as the evil Eris. She had the perfect evil voice. The
ship’s crew was funny as well, especially Kale (Dennis Haysbert) and
Rat (Adriano Giannini).
Tyler’s Box Office Review gives it a “buy ticket” for good
effects, story, comedy and cast.
“Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas” is rated PG for adventure
action, some mild sensuality and brief language.
