I'd never really wanted to watch it, I thought it'd suck, but yesterday I found it by chance and just thought, oh well, maybe I should just watch it once, because there are not many movies currently that can really impress me. As a child I always liked the story of Sindbad, watched the cartoon all the time with the little Sindbad and the female bird on all of their trips, and I had a book I read several times with lots of pretty pictures. So in a way I like the story, of course. And I liked this movie much, too. It's rather short, but very nicely, romantically and adventurously told. Even the slimy dog had charm.

Sinbad, the most daring and notorious rogue ever to sail the seven seas, has spent his life asking for trouble, and trouble has finally answered--in a big way. Framed for stealing one of the world’s most priceless and powerful treasures--the Book of Peace--Sinbad has one chance to find and return the precious book, or his best friend Proteus will die. Sinbad decides not to take that chance and instead sets a course for the fun and sun of the Fiji Islands. But Proteus’ beautiful betrothed, Marina, has stowed away on Sinbad’s ship, determined to make sure that Sinbad fulfills his mission and saves Proteus’ life. Now the man who put the “bad” in Sinbad is about to find out how bad bad can be.
