During their absence, the Golden Age of Narnia has passed, and Narnia has been conquered by the Telmarines and is now under the control of the evil King Miraz, who rules the land without mercy. The four children will soon meet an intriguing new character: Narnia's rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince Caspian, who has been forced into hiding because his uncle Miraz plots to kill him so he can place his own newborn son on the throne.

    A glorious medieval war movie. It's about war as the ultimate pitch of conflict that tries men's souls, and women's, too.
  2. The film's pronounced split between violence and softness notwithstanding, Prince Caspian is finally a more polished effort than "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and squarely in the tradition of the kind of teenage movies the Disney organization used to make before teens discovered horror and gore.
  3. An elaborately presented feast that will taste familiar to the 'tween and teen audience for whom it is served. The four courses are love, war, faith and humor, served in no canonical order, and sometimes, simultaneously.
  4. In total effect, Prince Caspian feels a lot more earthbound than "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."
  5. 63
    The movie is more somber and less wondrous in tone than the first film, especially since the lion Aslan (voiced by Liam Neeson), who would have been instrumental in leading the Narnians to victory, has disappeared.
  6. Roughly the same as the first in terms of quality and style. It delivers without much visual dynamism, and with a determined emphasis on combat. In the 1951 novel the climactic battle between the good Narnians and the bad Telmarines lasted a few pages. The film version of the same battle feels like "The Longest Day."
  7. Exactly one minute longer than its predecessor, but it's a dragged-out exercise, with no epic scale and no spirit worth talking about.

    Eddie Izzard's Reepicheep steals the show, although Anna Popplewell's pouty lips do rate mention. Otherwise this is awkwardly, Eddie Izzard's Reepicheep steals the show, although Anna Popplewell's pouty lips do rate mention. Otherwise this is awkwardly, clumsily filmed. To be fair the novel doesn't lend itself easily to filming and Adamson hasn't come up with any kind of solution. Expand

    This is the worst movie I have ever seen. I walked out of "Weekend at Bernie's 2", so maybe that was a little worse. But how can anyone This is the worst movie I have ever seen. I walked out of "Weekend at Bernie's 2", so maybe that was a little worse. But how can anyone give this any praise. Everything about it sucked. Horrible pacing, the editing looked like it was done by an 12 year old on i-moive, the camera work was tedious and unoriginal, the special fx look like leftovers from the first Narnia, the acting was beyond bad - there were accents coming and going every other minute... and the list goes on.
