Ratings & Reviews

  1. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Arabian Nights

    WWII escapist fantasy that is similar to Thief of Bagdad but doesn't compare in quality. Beautiful Technicolor, a good performance by Sabu, and comic relief still can't help the overall story, script, and acting of the most of the cast.

  2. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Arabian Nights

    Technicolor B-movie promises adventure and spectacle, but mostly delivers the usual studio backlot melodrama padded out with some pretty lame slapstick. It has its moments: Maria Montez is appropriately over the top, as are the lavish costumes by Vera West and Frank Skinner's lively score, but it's not enough to make it any kind of classic.
