‘Sinbad’ sets sail on a thrilling voyage

Tyler Nyczaj, 17, of Burbank will be a senior at John Burroughs High

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.
