To prove himself worthy of his lover Parisa (Danielle Duvale), also in the eyes of her father the Sultan (David Light), Sinbad (Shahin Sean Solimon) has set out to gather the medallion of life - but once he returns to the Sultan's court, he finds everyone frozen and Parisa gone, taken by The Deev (Said Faraj), an evil sorcerer with even more evil ambitions. Tracking down the Deev, Sinbad and his crew must face many dangers, from the Rok Bird to giant crab monsters and a cyclops, and Sinbad's entire crew even falls prey to a village of vampires, but Sinbad presses on regardless, and the higher the stakes are against him, the more likely he finds a way out, and eventually he makes it to the island of the Deev - but the Deev is not only powerful but also clever, and in him Sinbad might have finally found his master ...

Patrick Stewart can be heard as the voice of an older version of Sinbad, recounting the tale from memory.


Now of course, the tale told in Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage is hardly new, nor the dangers Sinbad faces - but it's put together extremely lovingly, with the many practical effects including some wonderful stop motion work that's worthy a Ray Harryhausen - whose Sinbad films this movie openly pays hommage to - being worth a special mention of course, which create a sense of wonder that computer created images just rarely manage. And really, on the sense-of-wonder side of things, Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage scores very highly, as it's pretty much steeped in pre-revisionist fairy tale atmosphere that invoked instant nostalgia and successfully invites its audience to enjoy the whole thing through the eyes of a child.


On a side note, Shahin Sean Solimon has been acknowledged the first actor of Persian descent to play the Sinbad in an American made film - and it's really about time!
