Squanders both its first-rate computer graphics and its sturdy international cast.

Adamson barrels the action along in an even-handed manner that should keep most of the family happy.

I can't comment on whether it does Narnia literature justice, but as a film fan, I can whole-heartedly recommend it as an example of fantasy done right.

It's a relatively entertaining romp, but it would be surprising if anyone is counting down the days until the third movie.

Adamson seems to have decided the great battle at the end of the previous film was its best part and has set out to recapture it but more so, leading to some truly outstanding set pieces, but resulting in a film that is less than the sum of its parts.

Some religious punters may find it to be a bastardization of their and Lewis' theological core values, while secularists will find the whole Narnia concept to be nothing more than a shrewd recruiting campaign for Christianity.

Audience Reviews for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

A bit slow going at the start but a darker, Narnia with a solid action packed middle and end that my daughter and I enjoyed. Now they have to somehow pull off the next books which in my opinion were not so good.

The second installment of C.S. Lewis' famed fantasy novels is a visual advancement from the first of the series. Though it may not obtain the same magic and charm that upheld the the previous film, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is still an entertaining and enthralling family film to see. 4/5

The movie is great to look at, but it is so far from the quality of the first film that it cannot help but feel like a straight to DVD follow up or a TV special. The film is chalk full of uncomfortable acting and unnecessary deviations from the text, such as a cringeworthy hinted romance between Caspian and Susan. Unlike the first film, Caspian brings no raw emotion to the stage, and is simply lifeless.
