John Phillip Law stars as the legendary sailor this time around as he finds a talisman and sets sail with his crew for an uncharted island. With a beautiful slave girl (Caroline Munro) in tow, Sinbad takes on the evil sorcerer Koura (Tom Baker), who wants Sinbad's golden talisman to complete a spell. En route to the island, Koura brings the ship's figurehead to life to wreak havoc on the ship and crew. Once there, Sinbad and crew must do battle with a six-armed figure of Kali brandishing a sword in each hand, as well as an enraged Cyclops centaur and a winged griffin, and also deal with the treacherous Koura.

This 1974 entry in the Sinbad franchise is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, the film's production values are quite good, and of course the Ray Harryhausen effects are as beautiful as ever. The set design (especially for the scenes inside the cavern) is striking and inventive, and there's Miklós Rózsa's score gracing the soundtrack. On the other hand, the story definitely tends to drag a bit, and Law's indeterminate accent often wavers toward a weird Slavic inflection. Pointing to the film's age, Law and company often tend to look like poncey rock stars with their long hair, beards, and harem pants. That's all nitpicking, though; the action segments, though they're fewer and farther between than in other Sinbad films, redeem the movie with Harryhausen's incredible artistry. It's worth owning just to see the fluid, complex movements of the animated Kali flailing away at six men with her swords. And of course, scream queen Caroline Munro never looked better as the slave girl Margiana. This is rich, well-crafted fantasy fare that the entire family can enjoy. --Jerry Renshaw

I took my two kids years ago to see this movie and I still like it!

A quest for Lemuria and a magic fountain, this one features batlike spies, a sword battle with six armed Kali, a Centaur Grffin fight and a scantilly clad Munro!
L. Cabos
My family and I enjoy this movie a great deal....clean, some comedy, good plot, and pretty amazing creatures and effects for the period.

Technically a follow-up to the Harryhausen-Schneer classic "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad", this Arabian fantasy only shares the title character in a new story. Although it has less stop-motion animation monsters than some of the other entries in the Harryhausen-Schneer fantasy film canon (which includes "Clash of the Titans", "Jason and the Argonauts", and "Mysterious Island"), "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" is one of their absolute best, for three reasons.
1)The script. This is usually a weak element in the Harryhausen-Schneer movies, with the narrative haphazardly woven around monsters conceived before the script was written. But "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" surprises: the script is charming and poetic, sounding exactly they way we would always like an Arabian Knights adventure to sound. Just a few lines of Koran-inspired maxims are enough to whisk you back to childhood innocence. The plot is simple but exciting, and villain Koura is a wonderful nasty. And the monsters make sense; they have a good reason to appear.
2)The performances. Usually in this series, actors make up part of the budget-saving: adequate at best, laughable at worst. But John Phillip Law makes a fine Sinbad: taciturn, stoic, exotic, and tough...he really matches our vision of what the legendary sailor should be. But it is Tom Baker (later to be the most famous Dr. Who) who steals the show as evil sorcerer Koura. He doesn't try to play the baddie for camp value, doesn't try to make him funny, but instead plays him as sinister and cold-blooded as possible. Great voice intonations as well. Oh, Caroline Munro is in the film, too. I don't really know about her acting, but it doens't really matter with those outfits she almost wears. You'll see what I mean...
3)The monsters. Each one is a clever Harryhausen masterwork.

Format: VHS Tape
While the story of Sinbad's pursuit of a hidden treasure amidst seemingly insurmountable danger, falling in love with a beautiful woman (thank Allah that polygamy was allowed, no? He seems to get married in each film!) and being pursued by evil, magickal forces has become "stock" in that they all are basically the same tale, this film is truly exemplary for the acting talent of Thom Baker (spelled Tom in this flick), memorable to most of us as the "best" of the Dr. Who characters. Baker brings an intelligent, almost tragic malevolence to the character of Prince Koura, master swordsman and sorcerer, whose pursuit of arcane and mundane power comes at a very tangible and foreknown cost (he ages whenever he casts a major spell of any sort). In short, you certainly sympathise with him and sometimes almost secretly hope he is successful, since he really has no choice BUT to once he sets out on the path. Again, like all Sinbad films, the scenery is astounding, the special effects (Ray Harryhausen) remarkable even in this day and age of computer graphics, and the story replete with kitsch (pardon the pun) references to Islam.

Format: Blu-ray
The second in Ray Harryhausen's "Sinbad" trilogy, "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" receives a deluxe release from Twilight Time the specialty Blu-ray label that handles cult films. A big box office success in 1974 (it was released in the UK in December of 1973 but had its premiere in the U.S. in April of 1974) the film benefits from a strong performance by Tom Baker (best known for his TV performance in "Doctor Who" and his marvelous turn as Rasputin in "Nicholas and Alexandra" also recently released on Blu-ray from Twilight Time) as the villian Koura. Tom Baker was cast as the Doctor in "Doctor Who" due to his strong showing in "Golden".

While "Golden" isn't quite as strong a film as "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad", it holds up remarkably well. The direction by Gordon Hessler is fine although the film could have benefited from tighter editing. The producers do try to make the characters closer to their middle eastern origin. Actor John Phillip Law who plays Sinbad sports an accent while Monro wears make up to make her appear to have the darker skin of someone from the middle east.

There has been some criticism over the years that this film doesn't feature Harryhausen's best work but the sequence with Kali is marvelous and a highlight easily as good as the best work that Harryhausen did and matches the fight with the skeletons from "Jason and the Argonauts" in terms of its complexity.

SPOILERS:
Haunted by a dream involving an exotic woman (Caroline Monro), Sinbad and his crew put in at the port of the city of Marabia. The disfigured Grand Vizier of Marabia (Douglas Wilmer) welcomes Sinbad and tells him of the legend of Fountain of Destiny.

I just watched this with my kids, and they were spellbound. There is no other word for it. The official description gives you an idea of the plot, but nothing can express the magic of a young mind that aborbs this entertainment that is as good as greek mythology (there are many similarities). I witnessed two young minds, awestruck and open, watching this and asking questions - some of which I couldn't answer, and so we must go elsewhere to find them together. What better recommendation is there than that?

Warmly recommended.
