Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage (2014) seems to be a mythical fantasy movie that I absolutely could not wait to see and was deeply disappointed when the release date was changed from January 31, 2014 to February 7, 2014. There is no reason so far behind the release date being changed except for it being closer to Valentine’s Day. I saw the trailer several times and loved all that it offers and the magical feeling it gives me. I saw the movie and I loved it and that is really because it offered a diverse variety of things that you do not see in your normal everyday movie. I would watch this movie again (maybe several times) and would recommend it to everyone to watch for a fun, entertaining, relaxing watch without thinking too much about it or thinking too much about what the movie is about. The storyline is great but there is some whats? and ifs?. Just watch the movie and enjoy the setting, sceneries, fantasy creatures, belly dancers and all it has to offer that are different from the other movies in 2013 through 2014 so far.
Shahin Sean Solimon (2008 movie - Djinn) is the director, writer, producer and also an actor (Sinbad) in Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage. This is his second movie to direct and I love the work he did. I am anxiously awaiting more movies from this new upcoming Persian director. This movie is rated PG-13 and contains very intense frightening scenes, suspense, mystical creatures and violence. The CGI was mind blowing - I loved it. The only thing I was scared of in this movie was the sorcerer. It is a nice family movie and I would recommend this to everyone.
This movie is based on time-honored stories of The Arabian Nights, Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage. Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Hunting Elephants, Star Trek: First Contact) did the voice of the Narrator. Sinbad is in love with the Sultan’s (David Light - Beauty in the Broken, The Dalhia Knights, Dark Games) daughter, Firoozeh (Sadie Alexandru - Broken Horses, Kittens in a Cage, Starting from Scratch). The Sultan disapproves of Sinbad and Firoozeh’s relationship because Sinbad is not wealthy enough to support his daughter and to join the family. Sinbad got a chance to prove to the Sultan that he loves Firoozeh and could take care of her. An evil sorcerer named White Thief captured and held Firoozeh in a black desert. Sinbad has 40 days and 40 nights to find and save his true love from the evil sorcerer. He fought a Cyclops and all sorts of creatures from ancient time while trying to find his love Firoozeh. It is really a magical movie to watch and I feel sorry for all those who cannot see it in their hometown because it is currently playing in limited movie theaters. I love the music, cinematography and actors in this movie.
