56. Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger [VHS]

by: Sony Pictures
Release date: Jul 08, 1994
Run Time: 113 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
In this last go-round for the Sinbad series, Patrick Wayne plays the legendary sailor. He is betrothed to Farah (Jayne Seymour) and seeks her hand in marriage, but her brother Kassim has been turned into a baboon by the evil Zenobia (Margaret Whiting). Before he can break Zenobia’s spell, Sinbad must contend with the Minoton, a bronze statue brought back to life to do her bidding; a trio of flaming skeletons wielding swords; a 9-foot-tall troglodyte; and a saber-toothed tiger. Wayne is the film’s weakest point, making a rather wooden Sinbad. Whiting’s performance smells strongly of ham, but it’s a brand of ham that fits the movie perfectly. As always, though, Harryhausen’s work is outstanding. He instills more personality and character into his creatures in this outing, especially for Kassim and his relationship to his sister. The prolonged battle between the troglodyte and saber-toothed tiger is a violent one, generating some real suspense. At times it’s difficult to remember that it’s not live action with guidance from a director. Though this is an uneven effort for the Sinbad series, it still has its moments. –Jerry Renshaw

Author Cornelia Funke’s best-selling children’s novel comes to vivid life on the big screen with this family-friendly tale about a bookbinder whose storytelling skills possess the curious power to transport the characters he speaks about into the real world. When a nefarious villain from a bedtime story that the father is currently reading to his daughter emerges to kidnap the stunned storyteller, it’s up to the young girl and her adventurous friends — both real and imaginary — to bring dad back home and close the book on the dreaded fiend once and for all.

Basada en el exitoso libro “Corazón de Tinta” cuenta las aventuras de “Mo” Folchart (Brendan Fraser) y su hija Meggie, quienes comparten la pasión por los libros y el extraordinario don de dar vida a sus personajes, al leer sobre ellos en voz alta.
En uno de sus viajes a una librería, encuentra un libro que ha estado buscando desde que Meggie tenía tres años, cuando su madre, Resa, desapareció en sus páginas. El plan de Mo es utilizarlo para rescatar a Resa, sin embargo la idea se frustra cuando Capricornio, el malvado villano de Inkheart, secuestra a su hija.

Decidido a rescatar a Meggie, su padre reunirá a un grupo de amigos y aliados (algunos reales y algunos de las páginas de los libros) y se embarcará en un atrevido y peligroso viaje.
