Well, it was better than the second and brought the emotion to highs and lows. Overall, not a bad film, something to be proud of, but nowhere near the power that the book contains. This was my favorite story and the scene with Reepicheep going to Aslan's country is still sweet. Though it seemed some scenes weren't necessary, and Eustice's character could have been explored more so even though I enjoyed his performance. I was pleased but I did want more and the writing and indeed acting could have been more solid in spots. (Update) Nah this is the worst of the three and having recently watched all three I have clarity on that. Wardrobe stays close to the book and explores the allegory with the most skill. All three stories suffer from poor acting in places but the lazy film making shows more and more through the production value in each installment. This one is where they're not even trying. Some of the opening works but character development is rushed, plot is rushed, everything is rushed, except the CGI, you have ample time to soak that up. The movie races by and we haven't explored anything. We haven't felt, we have just watched. I think my initial liking of the film is nostalgia and is contextualized in my love for the books but Treader is crap. The ship is plastic and everyone is clean for goodness' sake. And a mist? Lots of poor adaptation that wounded Caspian and killed this one.
