Sinbad the sailor and his servant Habib find themselves aboard Captain Asis' ship when they're attacked by a great sea monster. Sinbad and his servant are stranded in the middle of the sea but are brought by the currents to a strange island, which they soon discover to be the island of Salabat, ruled by King Jamaal. The king, enthralled by Sinbad's tales of his extraordinary adventures, asks the sailor to marry his daughter Nafia and Sinbad, unwillingly, accepts. Soon, Sinbad regrets having made that promise to the king and together with Habib plans an escape aboard Captain Asis' ship. The escape is successful, but Sinbad and Habib are soon tracked down by King Jamaal and his soldiers and taken to a deserted island as punishment for their betrayal. In the island, Sinbad and his servant must survive the presence of the most dangerous creatures, gigantic snakes and the magnificent Roc bird. Making a fortune along the way, the two men must be brave in order to survive the island and the many more dangers that follow in order to return to their homeland and enjoy their newly found riches. —Fréderick Irizarry
"As brave as a man can be"
Not quite one of the standouts of the Golden Films animations(Thumblina, The Little Mermaid, Pinocchio) but not one of the worst either(so far the one I liked least was Anastasia). However, even if the animation could have done with more vibrancy and fluency that were there in Thumbelina and The Three Musketeers, it is still highly enjoyable. As Brave as a Man can be is one of Golden Films' catchiest theme songs, and the classical music choices are wonderful and very-well incorporated, while there is some witty writing, an exciting story that will keep the target audience engaged by the real sense of adventure it has and Sinbad is a dashing and charismatic hero. The creatures seen prove that they don't need to be constructed by Ray Harryhousen to be enthralling, and the voice acting is enthusiastic in alternative to bland. All in all, a good solid animation and worth seeing at least once. 8/10 Bethany Cox
