An adventure for the ages. Forget that this film was done in 1958, it willstill awe the most jaded viewer. This is Ray Harryhausen's very best work.The stop-motion effects are awesome. But, even with all of the eye candy,it's a great story brought to life by fine, serious performances by KerwinMatthews, Kathryn Grant-Crosby, and especially by Torin Hatcher who has tobe the creepiest and most evil villain there is on celluloid - includingDarth Vader. If you are an Adventure/Sci-Fi/Fantasy movie fan and youhaven't seen this film...Shame On You! Go out and buy it, rent it,whatever - Just see it!

While sailing with Princess Parisa to Baghdad to their wedding, Sinbad finds the Colossa Island and anchors his vessel to get supplies for the starving crew. Sinbad and his men help the magician Sokurah to escape from a Cyclops that attacks them, and Sokurah uses a magic lamp with a boy jinni to help them; however, their boat sinks and he loses the lamp. Sokurah offers a small fortune to Sinbad to return to Colossa, but he does not accept and heads to Baghdad. The citizens and the Caliph of Baghdad are celebrating the peace with Chandra, and they offer a feast to the Sultan of Chandra. Sakurah requests a ship and crew to return to Colossa but the Caliph refuses to jeopardize his countrymen. However, the treacherous magician shrinks the princess and when the desperate Sinbad seeks him out, he tells that he needs to return to Colossa to get the ingredient necessary for the magic potion. But Sinbad has only his friend Harufa to travel with him, and he decides to enlist a doubtful crew in the prison of Baghdad, in the beginning of his dangerous voyage to Colossa to save the princess and avoid the eminent war between Chandra and Baghdad.

When I was a kid, the experience of watching "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" started my admiration for the music of Bernard Herrmann, and confirmed my love for fantasy cinema (and stop-motion animation), in an unconscious way. Before this, I had seen "It Came from Beneath the Sea" (1955), a B&W movie in which an octopus created by Ray Harryhausen climbed the Golden Gate Bridge... But this time Harryhausen's creatures were in full color, the exotic story was inspired by tales from the "Arabian Nights", and the magic was enhanced by Herrmann's score. The film had princess Parisa reduced to less than four inches, cyclops running crazy, a dragon, a bird with two heads, an evil magician called Sokura, a boy genie, and the celebrated skeleton duel, but I was mainly impressed by Sokura's act of magic during the Sultan's ball, crossing a snake with Parisa's aide (actress Nana de Herrera, who looked weird even before the transformation.) The Harryhausen-Herrmann collaboration originated two more Sinbad movies, and other favorites, as "Mysterious Island", "Jason and the Argonauts" and "The 3 Worlds of Gulliver", but "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" is number one in my list of the collaborators' films. There is a moment in "Star Wars", which is a direct quotation of the movie: when Luke Skywalker and princess Leia cross above an abyss, as when Sinbad and Parisa escape from Sokura's lair.
Seeing Harryhausen's beautiful work presented in gorgeous color sequences is truly something to behold. Films like this kick modern CGI adventure films in the nuts and then urinate on the back of their heads as they are bent double in pain. Matthews is a great leading man. Straight faced, romantic, and able to command the screen. Thatcher is a wonderful villain. His creepy voice and seductive tricks make him a love and hate kind of guy. The film may be episodic like so many adventures, but this one starts early with a cyclops attack, making the return there one of more focus. The actors still manage to take center stage amid a fantastic world of effects. The dragon, cyclops, snake lady, giant birds, and skeleton warrior are more fascinating than anything out there today.
