Good fun . I would have giving this an easy 5 star rating if the star Manu Bennett had been made to look Persian in any way , like long hair & charcoal around the eye's & maybe the classic Sinbad Goatee or even a turban. His acting is fine & I could tolerate a Persian adventurer battling a Greek monster. But They missed a golden opportunity to add a great Sinbad adventure to the list by adding more monsters for Sinbad to battle & making him look more Persian. Think of the time it took for Ray Harryhausen to make the monsters come to life in his three Sinbadmovie's & even then he always had at least 5 creatures in each of his three Sinbad offerings! With todays special effects & the same actors in this movie it could have easily been a 5 star rating had they just mimicked the Ray Harryhausen Charles Schneer formula!
This movie has nothing to do with any of the legends or stories about Sinbad. Why, when movie makes produce such things, they can't give the main characters other names - Clyde and the Minotaur - for example, I've never figured out. That said, for a cheesy movie with indifferent special effects and indifferent acting, it wasn't bad. Not a great movie, true, but I can't say I regretted watching it.

One star. For the horses. They were lovely. Ok the sorceror and his bad boy assistant who liked to eat people were very entertaining. Dont buy this film ..borrow it for a laugh, Mannu did much better as a Gladiator he didnt talk much. The posturing and hammy acting is worth borrowing the dvd. How it was funded is astounding. If the director did those crappy Aussie soaps he must have had some idea how to direct I reckon he was not feeling himself whilst this 'film' was 'created' the love interest is pretty enough And im so glad i saw the review that mentioned the moving eye patch and the chickens. I was screeching with laughter. All in all its pants. The whole thing is pants and the sodding minotaur is really rubbish. The eagle and horses stole the show. And that says it all. Not even Mannu whose shirt 'just fell off ' and posed as if on Austrailias next top model could stop me fast forwarding.

Karl Zwicky has been a successful television show director in Australia for over twenty years, with such programs as Neighbours, Home and Away, Heartbreak High and MacLeaod's Daughters in his resume. Sinbad and the Minotaur is his first movie (though it was made for TV) and, unfortunately, isn't very good. It stars Manu Bennett from Spartacus: Blood and Sand as the legendary character of Sinbad and he just hasn't got the charisma required to pull the character off, with his dialogue coming off worse than it is written. Special effects, considering it is a low budget TV movie are not too bad and the minotaur looks better than expected, but the set design is poor. If you liked the TV show Hercules: The Legendary Journey's you might enjoy this as a low-end rental, but where Hercules was cheesy fun, this is just cheesy so my recommendation is to skip it. 2/5
for any of you out there who remember muffin the mule or the woodentops you may wish that those puppets had been used as actors in this "masterpiece". This really is hard work to watch. I did watch it with total incredulity at it's complete lack of.... well lack of anything really..... it is absolute rubbish.... unless of course you enjoy having a snigger at the "actors" complete lack of talent. Maybe the "director" was some schoolchild sitting it's CSE in how NOT to direct, in which case a grade A would have been awarded.
I bought this dvd thinking it was going to be like the Ray harryhausen films of the past. This is complete garbage,the acting is best described as attrocious,and the special effects i could have made with a budget from what was left in my back pocket.Nothing good to say about this,and loaned it to a couple of friends and they said the same. At the moment i would like to get rid of it,but i feel i would be conning someone who purchased it.............garbage.
It isn't great, obviously. But it has elements which are actually good. It's just a shame that they didn't take it further as if they had they could have made it into something of a memorable, quirky little film. Now, it's actually worth a watch on a lazy afternoon or something but I can't really say it's actually a good film. But like I said, some elements in and of themselves are actually kind of nicely made and imagined.
