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.

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.

Darker, more complex and less prone to the cutesy wow-factor, this is a gripping tale with a thoughtful message.

The body count is high, the running time is particularly long for a children's film, and the themes are fairly heavy. But, like Wardrobe, it's a lush and mostly entertaining production.

Andrew Adamson shows a more confident and defined vision that works on several levels, however it's unable to overcome a nagging feel of disconnect.

It's entertaining, value-for-money stuff.

If crossbows, strange creatures, and a squeaky-clean young cast are the right elements for a fantasy sequel, then this naive epic is your movie.

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

As with any would-be summer blockbuster, the members of the special effects team are the real stars, and they haven't stinted in bringing this fantasy world to life.

Adamson's pulled a more morally nuanced rabbit (or badger, actually) out of his directorial hat this time out, and the result is a far more engrossing film than its predecessor.

It's characters like these that make the film worth seeing, but if the Narnia series continues to get worse with each installment, Disney would be better off just finishing the trilogy and calling it quits.

A well-executed, faithful version of the C. S. Lewis classic.

The acting, direction and effects have all improved considerably since The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Narnia fans won't be disappointed, but the story itself is weak by comparison.

An improvement over the original, Prince Caspian better catches the nuances of the source material, but continues to ignore some of the more potent statements.

Significantly better than the first film or, say, the first two Harry Potters.
