Movie Review: Prince Caspian

Tuesday, August 26, 2008
I had the opportunity to see Prince Caspian the other day at the Northern Lights. I know it's been out for a while and I'd wanted to see it earlier, but circumstances didn't line up the way I'd planned on.

Anyway, the movie was good. It's been just over two and a half years since I saw The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (the first book in C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia. Prince Caspian follows the fate of the titular character as he's escaping sure murder at the hands of his uncle, the king of Narnia's neighboring land. Incidentally, it's this neighboring land had been periodically attacking Narnia for the past while and nearly killed all inhabitants, so when Caspian flees there he's not exactly greeted warmly.

The children from the first movie are recalled to Narnia to help Caspian in his quest to regain the throne and bring peace to the world. Much bravery follows and, rest assured, children are shown once again that treachery and deceit will lose in the end. Lesson learned.

However, the movie's quite well done. While I didn't think it was as good as the first one (if I could have a dime for any time that phrase has ever been uttered...) I still enjoyed it. The actor who portrays Prince Caspian does tall, dark, and handsome alarmingly well. Anyway, the special effects were nearly flawless and the acting was good, it just felt more disjointed and didn't seem to flow as easily as the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Last word on Prince Caspian? Worth seeing if you liked the first one, definitely worth the rental.
