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.

Squanders both its first-rate computer graphics and its sturdy international cast.

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.

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.

Caspian is a visual sleeper hold from frame one; a constipated effort to erect widescreen wonderment, yet the production is missing dimension and needed narrative gusto.

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.

Most of C.S. Lewis's peculiar magic is lost.

Excessively violent but oddly dull...a Crusades allegory for teeny-boppers

The creakiness of the plot mechanics and the light condescension I detect don't have me looking forward to the third Narnia movie.

...the opening hour essentially proceeds at a crawl...

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 unfair to characterize it as Lord of the Rings-Light, but it's difficult to avoid that conclusion after watching this earnest but seriously under-inspired effort.

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.
