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.

Pretty big drop from the first installment. The story and the development wee a big bore.
½ July 15, 2016
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.

7.8/10
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.

Annoyingly grave and utterly boring, Prince Caspian completely misses the standard set by its predecessors with its slow pace and awkward storytelling, however its special effects have marginally improved.

This a sequel better than than original with still obtaining it's magic. 4.5/5

Though a bit slower than the first one, a darker Narnia offers many thrills.
March 23, 2016
Even better than the original.

I don't like the Narnia movies... but Aslan is awesome!

I was told that, of the trilogy, only the first film is worth seeing. I have to disagree because this film was even more exciting than the first one. I really enjoyed all the twists and turns and the epic battle scenes. Worth seeing.

It is an entirely different movie than the first with more emphasis on action and less on the story. It was very violent and not what I was expecting. What happened to the imaginative world of Narnia? (First and only viewing - In my mid-twenties)

I'm surprised that so many people didn't like this movie. It's just as good as the first movie. It does everything a good sequel should do: the characters are more fleshed out, it has more dark and mature themes, and the world of Narnia is explored more. The villain, Miraz, is a really good, intimidating villain. Caspian is a good, solid lead too. I get why parents complained about it being too violent for their kids. So, try reading the IMDB parents guide before you take your 7 year old son to see a hag cut open someone's hand. Overall, it's a good follow up to good fantasy film.

It seems the writers decided to only page through the book and pick out random bits they liked while making the rest up.
Caspian was one of my favorite books in the series and was butchered for the screen. Writers cut the magical charm of C.S. Lewis, cut the most intriguing parts of the plot, and what is left is somewhat well acted, visually stunning flop. The cheesy ending music and the awkward Caspain/Susan hinted romance is completely unnecessary. Trumpkin comes across as a one dimensional grump instead of the sarcastic wit that he is in the book.
The only saving factor was the brilliantly portrayed Reepicheep.

È vero che Alessandro Rossi doppiando Aslan ha risolto uno dei maggiori problemi del primo capitolo ed è anche vero che Sergio Castellitto e Pierfrancesco Favino si sono comportati bene, purtroppo però a livello di sceneggiatura il film è un disastro.

"Ma come?" direte voi "Non bastava seguire il libro?"... ebbene no. Hanno pensato bene di inventarsi degli eventi di sana pianta, e badate bene che non sono state aggiunte delle cosette secondarie, bensì degli eventi fondamentali.
Questa rivisitazione della trama originale è stata studiata malissimo e alcune sequenze risultano oggettivamente insensate.

Gli effetti speciali sono gradevoli.

Concludo tornando al doppiaggio italiano: Dicevo bene Aslan, ma per gli altri personaggi ci sono stati degli evidenti fuori-sincro.
