The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
Film Review

4 out of 5

The first Sinbad adventure saga from stop-motion genius Ray Harryhausen is still the best. Sokurah the Magician (Torin Thatcher) orders Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) to find a magic lamp that is being guarded by an ingenious gallery of monsters - brought to fabulous life by Harryhausen's expertise and Bernard Herrmann's rousing score. A 30ft-tall Cyclops, a two-headed bird, a fire-breathing dragon and a skeleton warrior effortlessly combine with swashbuckling spectacle and thrilling escapism under Nathan Juran's sure-handed direction, and the result is a fantastic family favourite.

Plot Summary

Fantasy adventure starring Kerwin Mathews. Blown off course to the monster-infested island of Colossa, Sinbad and his crew rescue a sorcerer from the clutches of a cyclops. The voyage continues to Baghdad, but the sorcerer has been forced to leave stolen property behind, and hatches a wicked plan to force Sinbad to return to Colossa.
