    The 7th Voyage of Sinbad just has me waiting around for the next Harryhausen stop-motion sequence, I'm afraid, as the story about the famous sailor helping a sorcerer against his will so he can restore a reduced princess to normal size is one of those picaresques that seem pretty random - strings of fantastical incidents, and complications brought about by Sinbad's dumb and venal crew - and it's very, very broadly acted. I'd go so far as to say some of the leads are just plain miscast. Kerwin Mathews especially is just a 1950s white jock who looks like he should be wearing a blazer or a letter man jacket. I'm not saying I want the cast in darker blackface (dear lord, no), but maybe a wig or facial hair? This entry in 1001 Nights genre is really just a showcase for special effects, and they're all interesting-to-great. Not just Harryhausen's creatures (as usual, expressive and well integrated into the action), but the practical and optical effects as well. But that's about it for me. 1 year 1 month ago

    Too bad the movie doesn't have anything in common with the original story of Sinbad the Sailor, because Ray Harryhausen could've made a fantastic movie with those effects. 10 years 2 months ago
