In this second chapter book of the Chronicles of Narnia, the Pevensie family of children travel back to Narnia only this time it seems like it is years, maybe centuries later. Their new task is to right the world once again and restore power back to the lands rightful owner, Prince Caspian. Based on the book written by C.S. Lewis. The movie tries to be like lord of the rings but fails and the CG looks okay in some parts of the film.

A lot of the magic and charisma of the first film is sapped in this darker and slower second film. The special effects may have improved, but the film's distracting moralizing has gotten more prominent. This is a murkier and less focused film that misses a lot of the charm and power of Lewis's book.

Not nearly as good as the first, and quite possibly too heavy in Christian overtones.

Didn't make me want to read the book

Four siblings (William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley) are whisked back in time to the magical land of "Narnia" when the four are waiting for a train.

They find the land, in which they were declared royalty hundreds of "Narnia's" years before, in ruins.

They eventually learn that the prince (Ben Barnes) of the neighboring "Telmar" summond them with a magical horn, and decide to help him get to the throne as he was destined.

However, the uncle (Sergio Castellitto) of the prince, who is king of "Telmar", wants the prince dead. But, the siblings and the prince rally the "Narnians" into battle.

Let me say this first that this, and the last one in the series I watched (I think it was the first movie in the series, but that was long ago) is not making me...

One of My Faves of Summer 2008

I really enjoyed this installment of "The Chronicles of Narnia" because it's vastly different from the first. Its move to be less magical and awe-inspiring than the first is risky but effective because the filmmakers managed to feature one battle scene after another for the older generation. Personally, I found the first film a little too precious for its own good, so I was glad to see this darker, leaner second chapter. I found this one fun from beginning to end because of the unique and interesting secondary characters, as well as the familiar faces. I must admit that I didn't like the Prince Caspian character because, not only is he boring, but I feel like his personality compared to Peter Pevensie is a bit too obvious and predictable. Of course, there were references to the Bible but ...

You may find Narnia a more savage place

It was a definite step back but nonetheless a worthy following to C.S. Lewis masterpiece The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I must say a darker Narnia is surprisingly more captivating from the first minute to the last, even though you can't really outshine something as successful as the first movie. This one is not as good but has a more story driven concept which makes up for the lack of sparkle the recurring characters have. There are also additional cast brought in like Ben Barnes as the infamous Prince Caspian which added that needed twist in the movie since itís named after him. Also there is this cuddly little mouse kind of like the Puss in boots character in the Shrek movies and what he does is light up every scene he's in. The villains are not like the LOTR's orcs which is a goo...
