| A Beautiful Animated Odyssey
"Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas" is a wonderful animated feature by Dreamworks. This under-rated movie was very well done with eye-catching visuals and an intriguing story. The scenes of the battle against the sea monster, and the visit to Eris' realm in Tartarus are particularly artistic. Granted, the legend of Sinbad may have been taken far from its "Arabian Nights" roots to go more towards Greek mythology. But all the mythic elements make the story a thing of wonder. Personally, I think every mythology and folklore canon in the world has some connections with each other, so who's to say that Middle Eastern folklore doesn't share any similarities with Greek mythology? Anyway, "Sinbad" truly deserves to be seen and enjoyed!

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


There are various accounts of Eris' parentage in Greek mythology. The writer Hesiod (8th or 7th century BC) depicts her as a daughter of Nyx, the goddess of the Night. According to this version, Eris' siblings include such gods and goddesses as Apate (Deceit, fraud), Geras (Old Age), the Hesperides (Evening, Sunset), Hypnos (Sleep), Keres (violent death, destruction), the Moirai (Fates, Destiny), Momus (blame, unfair criticism, mockery), Moros (Doom, impending doom), , Nemesis (devine retribution, implacable justice, avenger of crime), Oizys (Misery, depression), Oneiroi (Dreams), Philotes (Friendship, affection), and Thanatos (Death). Most of them were minor Greek deities, personifying various aspects of the human experience.


Marina: Are you sure you...
Sinbad: Yes, we have done this kind of thing before, no, there is no other way, and yes, you do have my permission to stand there quietly and receive a free lesson in sailing. Besides, a ship is no place for a woman.


At the end of the movie when Sinbad is telling Marena that it is "very, very dangerous" his mouth movements do not match up with his words.

Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits, other than the DreamWorks Pictures logo and the title of the film, which means are followed by the opening shot with Eris. Instead, there is a credits seen at the end of the film are presented in the orders of means there have otherwise been shown at the start. Although by the late 2010s or Cartoon Network, he was a commonplace for feature films to not have opening credits. In 2003, it was identify rather unusual for a major film to not have opening credits.

Alternate Versions

UK version was edited by 12 secs (removed was a head-butt) to secure a 'U' rating.
