Critic Reviews for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
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.
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.
What raises this entertaining sequel a tiny bit above the first movie is definitely its more pronounced urgency and sense of danger, while the action scenes are decent enough and the special effects still great, even though the acting continues to be mediocre.
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
