Critics Consensus: Narnia Looks Great, but Lacks Magic


This week at the movies, we've got a spiritual journey (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, starring Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes) and some European intrigue (The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie). What do the critics have to say? Back to Article

I totally agree with critics on narnia's rating.I loved the narnia's first part but after it,i don't know what happened to the makers.They totally lost the charm of narnia.They had lots of scope but they missed it.

Narnia has now dipped below 50% fresh. Didn't see that one coming.

I'll be watching, but I'm very surprised it's as Rotten as it is.

We finally got Black Swan this weekend, so I'm going to see that instead. Now I can whine and moan about not getting "The Fighter" instead.

Still no King's Speech though.

Nor surprised about Dawn Treader. The movie have been slowly declining in quality, so I wasn't surprised when this one was rotten. I am surprised and disappointed about The Tourist. I love Depp, and this is his first mainstream movie in a while, but the reviews just scared me away. I might still check it out if I've got some time to spare.

Have you seen this movie yet to build your own consensus? You are comparing this film to Prince of Persia, a film that sits in the 30 percentile whereas Narnia 3 sits in the 50 percentile. Noot exactly apples to apples my friend.

So it's just like the rest of the Narnia movies, then. I was hoping this one would be better.

The first Narnia was very good, and very funny. But the second was poorly done and this one looks boring and simply made.

I have to disagree. The first Narnia was simply "ok". Bland was more like it. I wanted to enjoy it as fondly as my memories of the animated version many years ago. It had a hollow feel to it. Prince Caspian just tripled that feeling. At this point in the Harry Potter franchise, Alfonso Cuaron gave the series a new darker direction and we know how that worked out. Not so with Narnia.

Sorry but it looks like the audience disagrees with the viewers

Just got back from a morning Narnia screening. I thought the movie was wonderful it had a lot more humor and personality than the previous two; the boy who played Eustace did an especially good job. Also, it's much more visually sound no offense to Adamson but he's clearly not in the same league as Apted.

However, I'm not surpised by the reviews either the story is very episodic,symbolic and mystical; it doesn't really have a traditional narrative arc. Also, while the ideas of escapism and empowerment play well in a book I'm not sure they convert spectacularly to cinematic form. Either way though loved the movie and would definitely reccomend it.
