The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Reviews
The action-packed sequel to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, that was almost as entertaining as the first.
It's still a lot of fun even if it is a step down from 'The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe'.
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).
