Tom Baker made excellent cackling villain.
Islamic traders historically visited & traded in Southeastern Asia before Christian Europeans.
Six armed statue was germane.
For a Ray Harryhausen movie the special affects were nicely done. As always He's ahead of his time. Sadly the movie didn't have a whole lot of sustenance to it. The characters where interesting but the woman really had no point in the movie but just to be there as eye candy (yuck!). But, if you like adventure and action this movie has a good douse of that.
Standard “Sinbad” plot involving a magic amulet, an evil sorcerer, and a deadly race across sea and land to discover a hidden temple which holds all the secrets. Along the way we’re forced to endure yet another host of shaky stop-motion monsters, bad matte screen backgrounds, and the usual bargain basement performances including those horrific attempts at an Arabic accent (”Is it not written that...” ad nauseam). The confusing jumble of Indo-Greco-Roman-Celtic-Whatever cultures is amusing however; imagine a Thai temple housing a Greek oracle and cyclopean centaur while a ragtag mob of green bushmen worship a Hindu deity. Awesome!
Some great special effects done with stop motion animation. I watched this as a kid and still enjoy watching it with my kids.
My favorite Sinbad movie adaptation.I really like the Ray Harryhausen stop motion special effects.A great story for a fantasy/adventure action movie.
