The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
One year later, the Kings and Queens of Narnia find themselves back in that faraway wondrous realm, only to discover that more than 1,300 years have passed in Narnian time. During their absence, the Golden Age of Narnia has become extinct 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 a curious new character: Narnia's rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince Caspian, who has been forced into hiding. With the help of the kindly dwarf, a courageous talking mouse named Reepicheep and a badger named Trufflehunter, the Narnians - led by the mighty knights Peter and Caspian - embark on a journey to find Aslan, rescue Narnia from Miraz's tyrannical hold, and restore magic and glory to the land.

Closer to a straight-ahead medieval battle picture than the fantastical, other-worldly journey depicted in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," this new entry is a bit darker, more conventional and more crisply made than its 2005 predecessor.

There are brilliantly dastardly bad guys. There are thrilling sword fights. There are brutal battles. Heck, the last third of the film is dedicated to a war on the scale of Lord of the Rings' Battle of Helm's Deep.

Exactly one minute longer than its predecessor, but it's a dragged-out exercise, with no epic scale and no spirit worth talking about.

By the nature of its story, Prince Caspian is a much more action-oriented film than its predecessor, and as long as you're not too young, the action is exciting without being overwhelming. Fans of Adamson's The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe will be happy with this sequel, and now the action is well under way, Adamson leaves us wanting more.

Some of the dialogue, particularly between the children, let the film down a little for me.

I can't condemn it outright, but damned if I can remember anything (aside from Izzard's performance) that would make me recommend it.

I really wanted to like this movie, but found myself checking my watch, noting how clumsily the centaurs run and how many "funny" moments have been added to keep things light. Nevertheless, Prince Caspian is a good-looking, entertaining family film, with a sprinkling of Christian allegory for those who seek it.

Although the plot was rather shallow (all they really did was fight) the characters were realistic, the acting great, the scenery amazing and pleasently humourous at times. Besides, I like to see films for the action and advenure, not see people wail about how their boyfriend ditched them or oh how ugly they are. Great movie to relax on.

The children actors are quite ordinary in these movies. Stilted, and dialogue is terifically hammy. It's quite long and slow going too. BUT... otherwise is a grand old epic, with some cute wee CGI fellas. Old timey, but enjoyable.
