The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Category: Movies,Reviews

This second trip to Narnia had the same feel that made the first one so enjoyable but with an extra touch that puts it above it’s predecessor.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was one of those movies that surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. Sure it was a kid’s movie filled with talking animals but it had a side to it that reached out to adults as well. I never read any of the books and didn’t even know that there was going to be a second installment let alone several other that are to follow. I was really hyped for this film and from the trailers it looked very promising. So was this the Narnia movie that we all hoped it would be? It sure was.

The story picks up one year after the events that took place in the first movie. I won’t get into much detail because the story is a drastic change from the first one which was very interesting. I rather you are surprised in how much the world of Narnia has changed then I explain it to you here. One thing to note is that the content in this film was filled with more emotion then the first. In the first we were introduced to the world and its many races of creatures. There was a battle between good and evil with good obviously coming out victorious. Price Caspian doesn’t really expand on the world but it shows the drastic changes it has taken. The story sucks you in right from the opening scenes. It might leave you confused at first being that it differs greatly from the first film. Soon enough more is revealed and you understand all that is at stake for the side of good. The only problem I had with the story was that it really slowed down at times and there where several dumb moments. This was an issue that the first film suffered from and it seemed to pass along to this one. However I found this to be very minor and it doesn’t take away from the overall feel of the film.

For those who still feel that this film is too kiddy to see then I promise that you will not be let down by the amazing action sequences. Along with the great story, these scenes were a big improvement over the first film. The final thirty minutes will leave you drooling. Certain scenes can be compared to The Return of the King but at a smaller scale. This is just an example of how well they are executed. The Characters are also great. There are many races of creatures like the first movie but now we get to see more humans as well. There involvement in the film is very strong. This is what throws the world of Narnia in a different direction.

On a side note, the end of 2000 was the rebirth of fantasy based films. Before that the only movie that comes to my head is Willow which might not necessary be a good thing to all. That actually happens to be one of my favorites. We have gotten lots of great films these past years and with the Hobbit on the way it seems like it isn’t bound to halt any time soon. This genre was dead for some time but I am glad to see that it has come back with films that top some of the crap that gets put on the big screen these days.

The Chronicles of Narnia is a series that looks like a sappy kid’s movie from the outside but is filled with all the thrills we get from some of the hottest summer films. If you didn’t like the first one then you might not care much after seeing this one. However, this film was a step above the first which many will enjoy. I had a great stay in Narnia and look forward to the next.

4 out of 5 stars
