It feels like a spin-off with no real logic. They're shocked sea serpents exist, but seven magic swords on the dinner table makes perfect sense.

This is simply time-filling nonsense designed for those who can't yet handle the infinitely superior Harry Potter films.

No need to tread lightly. The third installment to the Chronicles of Narnia definitely fairs better than the last one, Prince Caspian, but it still can't hold a candle to the first Narnia movie

...a voyage to nowhere that may actually keep young viewers from reading the books.

We might all be grateful for the persnickety Eustace, who doubts the existence of Narnia even when he lands splat in it.

Unlike its well-received predecessors...the latest widescreen cinematic edition, based on the 1952 book, feels feeble and undernourished, with drab use of 3-D effects to boot.

A falta de estrutura de A Viagem do Peregrino da Alvorada representa um dos principais problemas da narrativa.

Dawn Treader delivers some epic-sized adventure, but it simply isn't good enough to extend the franchise.

If this truly is the last Narnia film, the series will end on a strong note. I'm not ashamed to say I cried like a baby at the end.

A rousing adventure that's enjoyable even if it still feels rather sanitised

Though never bad, it does feel awfully tired at times, as fantasy fatigue slowly catches up to it.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has an inspired moment or two, but only the most devoted fans will truly feel its magic.

The strength of this film is the good, old fashioned adventure aspect. It's a lot of fun, and the journey is a blast with your kids in tow.

If The Voyage of the Dawn Treader never commits the offense of being spectacularly bad, it's guilty of what might be a far more sinister crime: profound mediocrity.

Could be an optical illusion, but it seems that a flat, dull movie shot in 3-D just looks flatter and duller.

Sequels rarely outdo the original movie, and Voyage of the Dawn Treader is no exception. Still, it's a swashbuckling adventure story that kids will love, so what's not to like?

The film feels impersonal and obligatory. Not even a last-reel appearance by the lion Aslan (possibly the greatest computer-generated animal character of all time) can make this one a keeper.

Engaging third Narnia adventure is fun for tweens and up.

An ocean pouring out of a painting into a bedroom is just plain cool. Dufflepuds that look like Oompa Loompas with one foot are just plain cool.

The visual splendor is still there, in moderate amounts.
