Sinbad: The Fifth VoyageClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage is a sci-fi/fantasy take on Arabian Nights that is a purposely campy homage to films such as Clash of the Titans, with old-school visual effects, giant monsters, and stop-motion animation. It features recurring, mostly very cartoonish fantasy-style violence, sword-fighting, magic spells, and battles with big creatures. There are a couple of brief scenes of belly dancing. The movie is too intense for younger kids, but for teens interested in B-movie heroics and retro-style adventure, this is largely good, clean fun with hilarious effects. Other kids are likely to feel it's dated and silly.
