A well made fantasy movie and it has that lord of the rings feel to it.

In a visually-stunning and imaginative retelling of the first book of the epic series, director Adamson nails a lot of the thematic and character elements that make the C.S. Lewis series so beloved. It's definitely the most faithful and exciting adaptation of the book, though my one complaint is that it doesn't go "dark" enough with some elements.

I'm not a fan of C.S. Lewis, so I watched this as a favor to a girl I was babysitting. One helping was plenty, thank you.

The Chronicles of Narnia

Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy stumble into a strange world filled with talking animals, fauns, centaurs, minotaurs, dwarves, phoenix, and many more. Great score, special effects, cinematography, settings and make-up. Themes of sacrifice, family, wrong vs. right, and bravery. Best lines include: "If the witch understood the true meaning of sacrifice, she might have interpreted the Deep Magic differently, for when a willing victim who has committed no treachery, dies in a traitorís stead, the stone table will crack and even death itself will turn backwards." and "Peter, there is a deep magic more powerful than any of us. It defines right from wrong. It over sees all our destinies. Yours, and mine." from Aslan. Only reservations this critic had were the slow start/build-up but the battle...

Lame, Boring, sucked!

They could have trimmed 30 minutes out of it without even noticing. It took 30 minutes just to GET to Narnia. Although the character development is acceptable up to that point, WOW is it slow.
The plot is so incredibly shallow. For example, why is there a war? Why was Narnia frozen for 100 years, why can peter become a swordmaster in a day? Why are white tigers bad and rhinos good? Why does the Wardrobe sometimes work and sometimes not? What does the professor know about the Wardrobe and what is his role? There is no method to Lewis' madness whatsover.The cryptic references to the prophecy does nothing to explain when and where it was created and why.
Please! Lord of the Rings does this in the first 15 minutes of the movie by explaining the rings, and then showing the first battle aga...

worst children's movie ever, bar none

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe based off of the book by C.S. Lewis is a stuptifyingly horrendously awful mess. I HATED this film. The film chronicles the four Pevensie children as they are given the job of leading an army and killing any non-believers to help out a lion who sounds quite a bit like Qui-Gon Jinn. Poorly edited (140 minutes) with amateurish special effects and bad TV acting produce one of the worst films of the year and the most inept, violent, subversive, and intolerant childrenís film ever made by Hollywood. (Kudos guys!)

Exploring the pristinely clean house during a game of hide and seek the youngest of the clan Lucy (Georgie Henley) discovers a wardrobe (large dresser) in one of the countless rooms in the professorís well kept mansi...
