The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Prince Caspain takes the next step in the Narnia storyline as we rejoin Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie in their magical land where things are much different than before.

I enjoyed this movie and its message. It seemed to be both more intense and more meandering than The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe which was puzzling. The special effects were very realistic, now only drawing attention as you watch a centaur run and wonder if that’s what they really look like. Although we didn’t include the kids, I think we will next time as there wasn’t anything other intense fighting sequences to give them nightmares.

All of the principle actors have returned – and some new ones – and their acting is believable and complimentary to each other and the story. Directed and co-written by Andrew Adamson again, and distributed by Disney and Walden Media, this franchise is poised to find its way on to a lot of families’ movie collections. I award this film 4 stars for being very good.
