->''"What could be more perfect than this? A noble prince, a priceless treasure and a black-hearted thief. Oh, this is going to be fun..."''
->-- ''' Eris' Opening Narration'''

A LighterAndSofter re-imagining of the famous ''[[SinbadTheSailor Sinbad]]'' stories by Creator/DreamworksAnimation, making use of a transitional blend between traditional and 3-D computer animation.

Sinbad - in this version a [[LoveableRogue charming pirate captain]] - is on a quest to steal the legendary [[MacGuffin Book of Peace]] and take it for ransom. However, when he attacks the ship carrying The Book, he runs into [[FireForgedFriends his childhood friend Proteus]], who is responsible for the book's safety. They are suddenly attacked by a Sea Monster (sent by Eris, Goddess Of Discord, who has her own plans for the Book) and [[BashBrothers they team up to kill it]]. After nearly drowning in the ordeal, Sinbad is approached by Eris herself, who strikes a deal with him to steal the Book of Peace, in return for which he gets all the riches in the world.

However, Eris then steals the Book herself and frames Sinbad for the robbery, getting him arrested and sentenced to execution. Proteus takes Sinbad's place in prison, pleading to the Council that Sinbad be allowed to prove his innocence by stealing the Book back from Eris. If Sinbad fails or does not return, Proteus offers himself to be executed instead.

Accompanied by his faithful crew and Proteus' fiance, Marina, who is along to make sure Sinbad keeps his end of the deal, our hero must now journey past the edges of the Earth and into Tartarus, Eris' Realm of Chaos, to retrieve the book and return before Proteus' time runs out...

The film made use of the same blend of 2D and 3D animation seen in Disney's ''TreasurePlanet'' (released a year earlier), mixing traditionally animated characters with CGI-created creatures, objects and backgrounds in 3D. Although it was a flop at the box office, the movie, like ''TreasurePlanet'', has a good cult following.

----
!!Film provides examples of:
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Sinbad's knife pierces the stone floor when it is simply ''dropped''. He also uses them to climb up an icy mountain.
* AccidentalKiss: Marina falls on Sinbad's lips during the Sirens' attack.
* ActionGirl: Marina.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: All of the crew, really. Some look Greek, some Arabic, some Asian. Rat ''looks'' Hispanic, but he actually speaks Italian.
* AntiHero ([[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V -> Type IV]]): Sinbad.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Kale doesn't buy Sinbad's story of his encounter with Eris. After saving a boat with a magical book inside from a gigantic sea monster. (It might have helped if Sinbad had not opted to describe the encounter as "Eris has a thing for me and invited me back to her place.")
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Happens at least three times during the course of the film. Four if you count Eris' pets.
* BadAssBeard: It's easier to count the exceptions to the rule, there are so many beards in this movie.
* BaldOfAwesome: Kale.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: Kale manages to block a sword with his ''teeth'', before using it to toss the attacker overboard, throwing back his head with enough force to pull his opponent (still holding the hilt) along with it over the railing.
* BashBrothers: Sinbad and Proteus against Cetus.
* BatmanGambit: Eris' EvilPlan relies entirely on manipulating first Proteus' nobility and then Sinbad's selfishness. She has the former completely pegged and only narrowly misjudges the latter.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Sinbad and Marina have ''tons'' of it.
* BigEntrance: Eris shows up [[spoiler: during Sinbad's execution and HeroicSacrifice]]. Said entrance involves the clouds spiraling into a tornado, creating a waterspout, and Eris emerging from the mist in a fifty-foot version of herself.
* BigFriendlyDog: Spike. His way up helping in the opening fight scene? Attacking a crew member... by licking his face.
* BilingualBonus: Whatever Rat says in Italian.
* BlackBestFriend: Kale.
* BoisterousBruiser: Kale.
* BoringReturnJourney: After Sinbad has spent the majority of the film traveling to Tartarus to confront the goddess Eris (overcoming numerous obstacles set out by the aforementioned goddess), his return journey to Syracuse is apparently instantaneous. However, Eris has not actually been defeated yet, and while her loss or victory depends more on Sinbad's decision than anything else, she still has every reason to try to prevent him from getting there.
* CassandraTruth: "So I meet Eris, Goddess of Chaos, she's got a major crush on me, and she invited me back to her place."
* CastOfSnowflakes: In spite of ''not'' having LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, each one is intricately designed and recognizable.
* ChekhovsGun: Sinbad's dagger. Eris mentioning she has to keep her word when it is given.
* ConspicuousCG: All of the monsters, most of the ships and all of that water.
* CosmicKeystone: The Book of Peace seems to act as this.
* CosmopolitanCouncil: Of the non-evil, non-plot important variety - The Delegation of the Twelve Cities are in Syracuse to await the arrival of the Book of Peace. King Dymas rules Syracuse (see ShiningCity), which is [[AncientGreece Greek]]. Marina is from [[AncientGreece Thrace]]. Of the other 11 delegates, one looks [[HornyVikings Nordic]], two look distinctly [[FarEast Asian]], two look distinctly [[AncientAfrica African]], one looks vaguely [[ByzantineEmpire Byzantine]], one looks [[AncientEgypt Egyptian]], and one looks vaguely [[ArabianNightsDays Arabic]].
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Sinbad.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sinbad, much of the time.
-->'''Sinbad''', ''while climbing the ice cliff'': Oh, she couldn't see the bird? Everyone ''else'' saw it. It's as big as a freakin' ship! ''Marina''? Marina's looking the ''other'' way!
* DefrostingIceQueen: Marina.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Near the end, Eris gives her word she'll give the book back to Sinbad if he were to correctly pass her test; answer honestly if he would go back to save Proteus whether or not he got the book. [[spoiler: He said yes, but Eris said he lied and threw him away. A quick HeroicBSOD later, he comes in to [[BigDamnHeroes stop Proteus' execution and willingly take his place]], if only to honor the sacrifice his friend gave to him. Eris is pissed, but Sinbad remembers what she said and calls out that she gave her word before, forcing her to return the book and let him live.]]
* EldritchLocation: Tartarus, where reality is [[RealityIsOutToLunch completely out to lunch]].
* EnthrallingSiren: Sirens are water elementals.
* EvenTheDogIsAshamed: Spike, after Sinbad's cruel treatment of Marina.
* EvilIsHammy: You can immediately tell Michelle Pfeiffer enjoys going overboard with her villainous voice role.
* EvilPlan: Near the end, Sinbad figures out Eris' goal. [[spoiler: Kill off Syracuse's heir and thereby cause a succession crisis: guaranteed discord.]]
* FanDisservice: "Come and ''get it'', ladies!"
* FireForgedFriends: Conversed; Sinbad and Proteus.
* GenreKiller: The film's low financial success caused Dreamworks to abandon 2D animation completely, turning to CGI movies such as ''{{Shrek}}''. Interestingly, the 2002 ''TreasurePlanet'' did the ''exact same thing'' to Disney, causing them to leave traditional animation for the Computer-generated variety. These two events combined might be why this blend of animation has never been seen since. However, as mentioned above, both movies have since achieved moderate "cult hit" status, suggesting there might be [[AnimationAgeGhetto some other reason]] for their less-than-stellar financial performance.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Oh, so many times.

* InNameOnly: As they appeared in ''The Arabian Nights'', Sinbad's stories were set around Arabian/Chinese cities populated with Muslims and told of the sailor's seven (mis)adventures that made him a rich man. This movie throws it all out in favor of a Mediterranean setting populated with Greeks/Italians and tells of the pirate's (mis)adventures as he learns the true meaning of friendship and love. So... Yeah. There's a guy named Sinbad, there's a boat, and there's a giant bird. There ''are'' Chinese among the crew though.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Sinbad
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: "Gentlemen, it's been a privilege robbing with you."

* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: Marina wonders what that sound is...
* {{Leitmotif}}: Eris has one. Tut-tut-tun-tun! with a OneWomanWail at the end of the second set of bars.
** Sinbad also has a particularly badass piratey-sounding one, which kicks in every time he carries out an IndyPloy.
** And in the scene where Eris [[spoiler:disguises as]] Sinbad to steal the Book of Peace, the two Leitmotifs dance together and intertwine.
* LettingHerHairDown: Marina (both literally and figuratively).
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Sinbad and Marina instantly fall into this once she [[spoiler: sneaks on board the ship.]]
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: In-universe version. Sinbad sets off for Fiji with no guilt instead of questing for the book because he believes Proteus's father would never let them execute his son. And he's right... but [[HonorBeforeReason Proteus refuses to leave]].
* LoveableRogue: Sinbad, of course.

* NiceGuy: Proteus defines the trope. See [[spoiler: GracefulLoser]] above.
* OhCrap: Everyone gets one when Eris shows up at the end.
* OneWomanWail: The introduction to the Sirens' Song. It then transforms into EtherealChoir.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Boy howdy, although this is more readily apparent in the production sketches (which are by the same fellow who designed the dragons in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' and can be seen on the [=DVD=].) Cetus looks like a combination of everything in the fisherman's platter. The Roc looks a bit more owlish than usual and can run about on all fours like a vampire bat. The Cyclops, had they appeared in the film, would have either been crab-men or fish-people.
* ParentalBonus: When Marina is in Sinbad's cabin:
-->'''Marina:''' Clearly I can't appeal to your sense of honour. But I have other ways of convincing you.\\
'''Sinbad:''' Really?\\
[Sinbad glances up and down on her.]\\

* RaceAgainstTime: Proteus' execution draws near...
* RedOniBlueOni: Done not so subtly with Proteus and Sinbad. They even ''[[ColourCodedCharacters dress in blue and red clothing!]]''
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: We don't know what caused Sinbad and Proteus to fall out until the beginning of the third act when Sinbad reveals he saw Proteus meet Marina at the dock for their arranged marriage. Rather than stay and resent his best friend, Sinbad chose to to leave.]]
* SadisticChoice: [[ArmorPiercingQuestion "So, if you don't get the Book... will you go back to die?"]]
* SceneryPorn: The backgrounds are truly breathtaking.
* ShapeShifting: Eris, who is able to change her appearance when it suits her best.
* ShieldSurf: During Marina's rescue.
* ShiningCity: The Royal City of Syracuse; filled with gleaming white, gold domed buildings and spires, built upon and amoung impossibly high GhibliHills, which are all connected by elegant walkways. There is even an elevated canal for ships, linking the seas with the Royal Palace. [[TheGoodKing King Dymas]] is surely one of the most under-appreciated city building kings in the history of fiction. Its a shame that we only see it for a few minutes of the movie though.
* SideBet: ThoseTwoGuys in Sinbad's crew have this down to a RunningGag. They bet on ''everything''. Special mention goes to when the ship reaches the edge of the World: "Pay up! It's flat!"
* {{Sizeshifter}}: Eris is able to go from normal size to massive whenever she feels like it.
* SlapSlapKiss: Marina and Sinbad. They quite literally resort to throwing things at each other during an argument.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Marina's first outfit.
** [[http://i.imgur.com/lSxDN.png Really?]] It's an evening gown, so it's hardly meant to do anything more than make her look pretty anyway. And she's clearly wearing an extra layer under the dark blue parts so it doesn't even show a lot of skin.

A LighterAndSofter re-imagining of the famous ''[[SinbadTheSailor Sinbad]]'' stories by Dreamworks Animation, making use of a transitional blend between traditional and 3-D computer animation.

* InNameOnly: As they appeared in ''The Arabian Nights'', Sinbad's stories were set around Arabian/Chinese cities populated with Muslims and told of the sailor's seven (mis)adventures that made him a rich man. This movie throws it all out in favor of a Mediterranean setting populated with Greeks/Italians and tells of the pirate's (mis)adventures as he learns the true meaning of friendship and love. So... Yeah. There's a guy named Sinbad, there's a boat, and there's a giant bird.

The film made use of the same blend of 2D and 3D animation seen in Disney's ''TreasurePlanet'' (released a year earlier), mixing traditionally animated characters with CGI-created creatures, objects and backgrounds in 3D. Although only a mild financial success, the movie, like ''TreasurePlanet'', has a good cult following.

* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Boy howdy, although this is more readily apparent in the production sketches (which are by the same fellow who designed the dragons in ''HowToTrainYourDragon'' and can be seen on the [=DVD=].) Cetus looks like a combination of everything in the fisherman's platter. The Roc looks a bit more owlish than usual and can run about on all fours like a vampire bat. The Cyclops, had they appeared in the film, would have either been crab-men or fish-people.
