This fantasy adventure, in 3-D, has the kids going on a journey to help King Caspian save the seven lost Lords of Narnia. If, at this point, you have no idea what I am talking about, you may just want to see the movie for the action and special effects. In fact everyone should go and see this movie for visuals… and nothing more. The acting is stiff… and quite frankly it’s too long. Sure the animation is cool… and the battles are grand between good and evil, but when you don’t really care about the characters… its makes for a below average movie. The film is pretty much like the books by Lewis, along with the on-the-mark Christian allusions.

Fans of the series will most likely enjoy it, but as a stand alone film… I don’t think so. “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” made in 2005, was pretty good. “Prince Caspian”, part 2 in the series made in 2008, was just OK, and didn’t do so well at the box office. Now this one…”The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”, doesn’t work at all. See my review to find out why…
