Sinbad, the original Prince of Persia, must complete seven tasks in order to save the world from catastrophe. I watched this film when it was released into the DVD world.I have been searching for this film for ages. I promise you, the graphics are unbearable, so bad, so terrible, I found myself laughing so hard, I was rolling on the floor.I originally thought this film was action. It turned into a comedy. The acting made me sick. Haha. But it is worth watching as it is freaking hilarious how bad it is.the DVD cover doesn't even match the film. The crab scene was my favorite. I do recommend this film as a comedy.but based on the film as a whole, it gains no marks from me. But as I haven't laughed so hard in my life, I'm scoring it a ten.
This movie starts out in the high-rise offices of a shipping and oil exploration company. The lead is advised that his ship is somewhere 400 miles east of Madagascar and is being hijacked. A demand for money has been made.
The manager of the company flies out to pay the money. In the meantime, the experts of the company talk about how the area is like the "Bermuda Triangle" - ships go missing without warning and electronic devices don't work. Moments later, a kraken (giant octopus) latches onto the ship and drags it and the crew to the bottom of the ocean.
The helicopter on which they fly is hit by lightning and the chopper sinks into the ocean.
Cut to an island. The lead wakes up and within seconds, finds one of the hijackers from the ship, laying on the beach near him (unconscious). As he tries to wake the hijacker, a giant crab (around 3 meters wide) starts to attack. It is shot many times and all it wants the briefcase containing money; (the gun although emptied at the initial shootout, strangely gets refilled without being done by the owner).
As the crab runs away, people who were also on the helicopter appear and ask what is going on - they heard and saw nothing.
Move forward, a number of groups meet on this uncharted island and find that there is a series of 7 tasks that must be completed by a hero if a series of cataclysmic problems to face the world are to be resolved. This is confirmed by some pictures found in a cave.
Moments after finding the details, the island starts to shake like an earthquake. It then shows that the island is in fact the back of a giant whale which dives into the water, taking the "island" with it. The group are left floating in the middle of nowhere without food or water.
Suddenly, they find a large bamboo raft which they can all rest on and in the next scene, they find themselves on yet another island, where they are chased by giant birds as offerings of food for the baby hatchlings.
At this point, it just got more absurd and I started fast-forwarding through to see if there were any redeeming aspects of the movie.
To my mind, there was only one salvation - the credits at the end - the movie had finished.
I gave it 3/10 for the sheer audacity of trying to turn a classic into a modern story and then failing. Don't bother with this one unless you really don't have high expectations of anything and perhaps just want to test the fast forward button on your DVD player is still functioning.
