Shot in the then-dazzling film-process called "Dynarama" - I remember, as a wide-eyed kid of 10, being absolutely struck with total awe while watching this cheesy Fantasy/Adventure picture from yesteryear.

With its introduction of several delightfully monstrous, stop-motion creations by effects-man, Ray Harryhausen (including a ferocious, one-horned Cyclops - Wow!) - This pre-CGI film was a child's most spectacularly exciting nightmare-thrill come true on screen.

But, alas - (As one might expect) - Time (yes-unforgivable time) has not been at all kind to this 1958 Sinbad, the Sailor, production. No. It hasn't.

Remembering my excitement as a fascinated child - I honestly did try to cut this 60-year-old relic some nostalgic slack - But, unfortunately - As a jaded viewer of today - I could only grade Sinbad's 7th Voyage with just an "average" 2.5-star rating..... (*Watch exciting movie-trailer*)

High camp as far as the plot and dialogue, but Ray Harryhausen's pre-CGI special effects are a marvel. The fighting skeletons amazed audiences of the time and represent a milestone in technological magic.

For the time, awesome special effects! Still cool in my opinion. The battle scene with the cyclops and the dragon - epic!

If you love animation you must see this movie. Inspired by King Kong, Ray Harryhausen is the genius who brought to life the stop motion creatures in this movie. He in turn inspired the animators who created the AT-ATs in The Empire Strikes Back, the mine car scene in Indiana Jones, and innumerable others.
