Mummy v/s Sinbad Review - Realbollywood.com News
Movie Review: 'Mummy v/s Sinbad'; Star Cast: Manu Bennett, Holly Brisley and Steven Grives; Director: Karl Zwicky; Rating: 1/2* - a failure in all areas.

Sometimes what you see on screen is so bad you are left speechless. 'Mummy v/s Sinbad' is one such film. It is so bad that the Indian distributors even changed its original Australian name of 'Sinbad and the Minotaur' to prevent cinegoers from finding out its true worth. But you definitely do find out, especially that there is indeed no 'mummy' in the film.

New Release: Sinbad and The Minotaur DVD

SyFy’s latest Original Movie Sinbad and the Minotaur, which premiered last week as part of SyFy’s “Saturday Night Creature Feature” series, will arrive on DVD on Aug. 30 from Entertainment One.

The fantasy adventure TV movie received pretty dismal reviews from critics (see the trailer below to judge for yourself).

Produced in Australia, the film has only one face that’ll really standout to audiences in the U.S., Manu Bennett of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, and he will only be recognized by fans of the HBO show.

Bennett plays Sinbad, sailor, adventurer and all-around ass-kicker, who is hot on the trail of a priceless treasure that he learned about from an ancient scroll chronicling the exploits of the pirate captain Minos from many years past. Battling the evil sorcerer Al-Jibar (Steven Grives, Scooby Doo) and getting a helping hand from the recently freed, scantily clad slave girl Tara (Holly Brisley,
