The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader 
"TCON: Voyage Of The Dawn Treader" by Yojimbo
2/4 stars

The children are drawn back into Narnia and join Prince Caspian in his search for the seven banished lords who were his father's greatest allies during the wars. The Dawn Treader is very much in the tradition of the Sinbad movies of old in its formula of island hopping magic, monsters and swordplay, no doubt in an attempt to capture the ready-made POTC and Harry Potter markets. It's a very attractive looking film with nice cinematography and effective CGI which facilitate the usual kiddie-friendly story of self-confidence and courage combined with the appropriate moral messages based upon the seven deadly sins. It does make for a painfully episodic story however, and the script has none of the darker subtexts, satire and sly wit that makes a family film appealing to an adult audience. The fact that by far the most engaging character in the film is a cartoon mouse also shows how bland all of the leading characters are. In its defence, it is very inoffensive and is sure to find fans amongst a younger audience, mainly thanks to its pretty visuals and a spectacular and well handled final battle.
