Overlong fantasy that I thought really didn't start going until the second half. Until then I just had the doggenest time trying to connect with anything that was going on. At least the special effects are decent.

I don't know if I like this movie quite as much as The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I still think this is a pretty underrated fantasy film, I really liked it.

I'm pretty excited for this one.

Just utter crap. Not impressed, not magical, just a bore.

Wasn't good. Better off with the first.

While I enjoyed the first film's story more (it was so clearly an allegory for The Atonement, The Resurrection, the Battle of Armageddon, and the Millennium), this one is better made, better written, and better acted. Plus, it has a healthy share of Christian symbolism itself, some rocking battle sequences (how this is only PG baffles me; the intensity of the action has PG-13 written all over it), and some of the best effects I've ever seen (the badger, in particular, is photo-real).

The idea that the kids actually grew up in Narnia, then returned to their world while retaining all their knowledge and maturity intrigued me (and it makes their battle skills more believable). All that said, I still didn't find myself nearly as emotionally invested or involved in this as I was with The Lord of the Rings, the standard with which it will always, perhaps unfairly, be compared. Why Narnian humans now have Italian accents is beyond me, and some of the jokes fall flat, but all in all it was very good; better than the first in terms of storytelling, character, and filmmaking. ***1/2 (out of five).

More exciting, dark, visually impressive, and well-acted than the previous installment, though in a way, a bit less profound. Still, here's to hoping the Narnia film adaptations keep on coming.

Worthy sequel to the 2005 blockbuster moves a tad slower but keeps the audience engaged with the material. On Blu-Ray.

Love the first movie more than this movie

A great kiddie movie...much better than the first one...yet still forgettable

It's decent. The actress who played Susan, however, is not as compelling or convincing as the elf Legolas was in the awesome Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian has gorgeous scenery, absolutely magnificent score, stellar special effects and excellent beginning and ending, but this was still such a major disappointment of an adaptation as the approach is just so poor here. Some plot points are changed from the book in a bad manner and the action is not only incredibly boring, but overlong and it ended up seriously affecting a movie that could have been very good.

The best of the trilogy. It has a lord of the rings feel to it.
August 12, 2016
Pretty big drop from the first installment. The story and the development wee a big bore.
½ July 11, 2016
The action-packed sequel to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, that was even more entertaining than the first. With many epic battles and the introduction of Prince Caspian, and many new Narnians, this Narnia is a lot more fun and epic than the first.

I liked this film only it's not as good as the lion, the witch and the wardrobe but it's still great.

Do the filmmakers know they stole the name for their crap movie from a C.S. Lewis book?
May 26, 2016
Takes heavy inspiration from Lord of the Rings, but can't pull it off on anywhere close to the same level.
½ May 14, 2016
The order:
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008)
