5.0 out of 5 stars superb classic adventure film for all ages May 18, 2004
Format:DVD
If you love classic films and you love special effects, then you are undoubtedly passionate about the films of legendary Ray Harryhausen, and this is one of his best. In this movie, Harryhausen uses his stop-motion technique in color for the first time (and the print here is terrific) to tell the tale of Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) as he sails the seas, forms an uneasy alliance with an evil magician (Torin Thatcher) and battles a Cyclops, a two-headed Roc and a dragon. Other memorable effects include the genie Berani and the interior of his magic lamp, the Princess Parisa being shrunk and the servant woman who is turned into a dancing half-woman, half-snake. The action starts right away and continues throughout the film, and Bernard Herrmann's music is, as always, absolutely perfect.
DVD extras are excellent, and include: a picture of the original poster; trailers from other Harryhausen features; two interview featurettes, each 12 minutes long; a 3-minute featurette about the Dynamation process; and a one-hour feature about Ray Harryhausen. This is a great package -- and for you enthusiastic polyglots out there, the film can be heard in English, Spanish or Portuguese, while subtitles are available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean or Thai!
Having small children who are becoming interested in "scary movies", I've found that the Harryhausen ouevre is a great way for them to find thrills and chills without gore, and a wonderful way for me to reconnect with my childhood joys as well. The whole family has a great time watching these terrific films. I'm really glad they're being re-released in such high quality and with such interesting dvd extras.
Superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath-taking print for The 7th Voyage of Sinbad September 5, 2000
Format:DVD
This film was always a favorite of mine since the first time I saw it.
Visually the print on this DVD is extraordinary. The colors are vibrant and the images are incredibly sharp, crisp and clear.
In particular, you can really appreciate Ray Harryhausen's Special Effects that he laboriously produced for this film. They don't look blurred or out of focus as they have on previous prints. They are presented here as they were intended to be seen in their entire splendor and brilliance. It is amazing what he did with an eight-inch tall stop-motion model of a skeleton.
Ken Kolb's screenplay elevates this film beyond the boundaries of what could have been just another fantasy monster movie. He brings depth to the characters and uses dialogue to increase the suspense of the story. Along with director Nathan Juran and all the other filmmakers an epic fairytale unfolds and is preserved on film.
Bernard Herrmann's score is a showstopper and as always accentuates the images on the screen adding mood and enhancing the overall visual effect for the viewer. Herrmann went on to score three more Harryhausen films: "The Three Worlds of Gulliver," "Mysterious Island" and "Jason and the Argonauts." Bernard Herrmann's collaboration with Ray Harryhausen and producer Charles Schneer equaled that of his collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock.
Kerwin Mathews is ever so stoically heroic as Sinbad. He is very good in this role as he brings energy and conviction to the part. He is a man with mission and will not bend or be swayed until he brings it to finality. It is a shame that Mathews never went on to greater screen accomplishments.
Trained for the stage at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Shakespearean actor Torin Thatcher is the consummate evil magician, Sokurah.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7th Voyage DVD is a winner! December 3, 1999
Format:DVD
Matlin's summary above is quite accurate in describing this film.
I first saw this film as a child of 10 at a drive-in theater. The memory of the imagery and the music have stayed with me over the years. I've seen the film since on tv, film festivals, and vhs. None had the clarity of image and sound of this new DVD release.
Columbia has done Harryhausen's film classic proud. The print quality has NEVER looked so good and is presented here enhanced for 16x9!. The original mono sound is also quite good and Herrmann's brilliant score moves the story right along. The extras on this disk are quite good with the lengthy "Ray Harryhausen Chronicles" being the highlight. The added trailers for other Cloumbia Harryhausen films are a treat.
Thanks to Columbia for an excellent presentation! Their DVDs are the industry standard!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ray Harryhausen's classic April 19, 2002
Format:DVD
Great action. Great music. Great monsters! What more can you ask for.
THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD is one of my all time favorite fantasy movies. I would count this, along with the silent version of THE THIEF OF BAGDAD starring Douglas Fairbanks and the 1940 remake with Sabu as the three greatest Arabian Nights adventure films ever made. What makes 7TH VOYAGE stand out among the three, however, are Ray Harryhausen's wonderful stop-motion effects.
While there are some who consider the monsters in this movie "fake looking", for me, I actually prefer to watch this style rather than overblown video game-like effects that CGI offers us. Harryhausen's creatures have much more personality. I actually felt sorry for the Cyclops when he gets killed by the Dragon. Ditto for the Dragon when he gets killed by the large cross-bow.
Kerwin Mathews, to me IS Sinbad. Every time the name "Sinbad" comes up, I always have to think of Kerwin Mathews. Kathyrn Grant is truly beautiful as the Princess. I also like Richard Eyer as the boy genie. Torin Thatcher, as the evil sorcerer Sokurah, is one of my favorite movie characters of all time. Foes of Sinbad in his later features like THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD and SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER, just lacked the strong presence that Thatcher brought to his character.
As Leonard Maltin putting so well - "It's a winner all the way."
