Movie Info

The adventure continues as producer/director Andrew Adamson teams with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to tell the tale of the dashing Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) -- who sets out to defeat a tyrannical king who has overtaken Narnia and secure his rightful place on the throne. One year has passed since the events of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and now the kings and queens of that land have returned to make a shocking discovery. Though by their calendars it has been only 12 months since their last voyage into Narnia, the four children are aghast to realize that 1,300 years have passed in the wondrous alternate universe. The Golden Age of Narnia has come to an end, and now the malevolent King Miraz rules over the land without mercy or compassion. Miraz is determined to ensure that the power stays in his bloodline, even if that means killing his nephew Prince Caspian so that Miraz's own son will be next in line for the throne. Fortunately Prince Caspian has the Narnians on his side, and with a little help from the kings, the queens, and some loyal old friends, he may be able to ensure that peace and prosperity are restored on the once-beautiful realm of Narnia. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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.

Too many fights, not enough magic.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

At every turn, the filmmakers go for clutter and tumult where simplicity would do -- and Adamson, to put it kindly, isn't the fleetest of action directors.

Prince Caspian may be less full of innocent wonder than its predecessor, but it is a smarter, better film. Like its young stars, the Narnia franchise has, for better and worse, grown up.

I wish I could be more enthusiastic about Prince Caspian, an honorable and attractive adventure for children and families. But scenic beauty and spirited action can't conceal its dramatic defects.

Audience Reviews for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian


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

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.
