    Any opinions on this title? Is it worth a blind purchase? I generally like animated movies, but haven't heard much about this one. I can't seem to find a review either.

    It's a pretty good title and if you like animation, worth the time. Certainly the transfer is flawless.

    The story? Well, most of the plot elements are very predictable but it's a good yarn.

    I was actually wondering the same thing, since I knew very little about the movie.

    I saw sinbad in the theatres.. its not competely bad, but not great either. there are a few great moments of animation.. its lot like disney's atlantis in sense that it could of been a live action movie.

    The reviews for the movie were very harsh. It's worth checking out though - the film isn't very faithful to the stories that inspired it, but the voice acting is great, the dialogue is witty (even some clever sexual innuendo), the action is inspired, and there is a great theme of redemption. It's too bad nobody bothered to check it out in theaters.

    Highly recommended, I loved it, superb animation (2d and cgi), good story, plenty of action. The anamorphic dvd was flawless, the colors were vivid, the picture crystal clear, the sound, perfect!

    Sadly traditional animation is going the way of the dodo, soon only Japan will continue the 'ancient' art of hand drawn animation. Sinbad had a hefty amount of cgi in it, which admittedly looked fantastic.

    Star voices include Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michelle Pfeiffer.

    There's been nothing concrete to suggest that Disney will abandon tradional animation. All a bunch of hearsay and speculation in my book. Show me the press release that confirms that they are abandoning 2D animation, and I will retract my statement.

    I agree, the reviews were harsher than the film warranted. The animation is more than passable, and although the plot isn't especially inventive, you could do much worse. Of course, I also thought that Treasure Planet was far better than its box office receipts let on as well. I'm not sure it was worth the $150 million it cost, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    I blind bought it yesterday and thought it was quite good. The picture and sound quality was great and the story was good. As previous posts said, lots of CG background which looked VERY 3D. I'd give it a [​IMG] .
