Sinbad's Golden Voyage although a good flick, didn't seem to quite stack up with his first film, the "7th Voyage". The characters of Sinbad, Koura and Vizier all had solid performances but weren't as likable as a view. Margiana, played by Caroline Munro had a phenomenal screen presence but didn't have the acting chops to play Sinbad's female love interest. Koura and Sinbad's quest to hunt down the golden pieces that together bring eternal youth was a solid start. Also Koura clay-mated miniature gargoyles were an awesome touch to draw the viewer in. However, the middle of the film fell flat up until the end, which itself was rather disappointing. There were some good clay-mated creatures, especially Kari the six-armed swordess, but the others weren't as impressive. It's kind of cool knowing Robert Shaw played The Oracle at one scene but I wish he had an actual physical performance. Still worthy of a watch but was a let down on my first watch.

Golden Voyage of Sinbad 5/10Reviewed byskybrick736Vote: 5/10
I saw it when it came out, and it still seems to have everything going for it (and I'm not prejudiced about EVERY Harryhausen film). Among other things, Ray Harryhausen has always had a knack for taking mythological things and actually "turning them up a notch" - a combination Cyclops and Centaur, a Centaur-Griffin battle, and so on. John Philip Law really looks the part as Sinbad (that joke about no actor looking dignified in a costume definitely doesn't work in his case). As others here say, Tom Baker made a great villain, with a sympathetic side. And Caroline Munro - that kind of speaks for itself. It takes about one minute to develop a crush on her in that movie. But one other thing this one has, which many Harryhausen movies don't (and don't really TRY to) is a very good comic relief character, the sort of lazy teenager, slacker, so to speak (Haroun?), who's Shanghaied on the ship ("Please show me to my cabin."). Even John Philip Law (someone you wouldn't think of as a comic actor) had some funny moments with that actor. And it even had a running joke that worked - "Tie up your camel". (Of course, you have to hear that in the film for it to make sense.)
I've said it before and I'll say it again, "Love that Ray Harryhausen". As far as Harryhausen's effects go, this is a very adventurous effort for him. The animated ship figurehead,AWESOME!, the six arned statue, BRILLIANT!, and the epic monster summoning battle at the end is a dream come true. I can't believe the griffon got beat by that brain-dead centaur. And Tom Baker! Hell yes! He is my favorite actor. His portrayal of Doctor Who is the best. Someone made the comment that this came out the same year as the dungeon's and dragon's game and that it came out right before star wars and how it doesn't live up to expectations and blah blah etc... Well, feel free to rent the Dungeons and Dragon's movie that came a few years ago done with that oh so wonderful computer animation we have now. What a joke, other than the special fx from star wars, Rob Bottin(The Thing) and a select few others, Harryhausen's effects are the best! Buy this movie!
