The first Narnia was good, but Prince Caspian came wiped the floor!

I already expected this to be an exciting movie, but I have to tell you that the excitement got so much higher as I watched this movie with my kids. I couldn't believe just how well this movie was, I mean the first Chronicles is a fantastic movie, but this movie takes a few steps ahead. It's definitely more mature, it takes on a lot of battle scenes, like a Lord of the Rings type of battle with a ton of creatures who are fighting for their land back. We have amazing effects, with taking badgers, goats, and mice, and the mice, this is no Puss in Boots from Shrek 2, this is the blood thirsty mice that kick butt! The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is seriously one of the best films out this year.

The movie begins where the first Chronicles left off, the kids are in England, pretty depressed and miss Narnia, it's been a year, but while in a train station, they are taken away back to Narnia where it's been 1300 years. The land is in bad shape, they have been called by Prince Caspian, the kids are these legends to the Narnians, but they need the kid's help. So everyone is in for a strong battle to get Narnia back into the beautiful land it once was. Lucy is hoping to re-connect with Aslan, but everyone does not believe as strong as she does.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a movie that will not disappoint, I cannot believe how good this movie was, I was so excited watching all these amazing battle sequences. The plot is actually pretty easy to follow, for kids that are under 10, I'm not so sure if this is a film for them, I know that The Chronicles of Narnia is a family film, but there is quite a bit of violence in the movie, like blood, cutting, and decapitations. The effects were amazing in every way, the acting was great and even the politics were surprisingly good. All I can say is that this is a superb movie, 10 times better than the first. It's truly a winner.

FAR better then the first film
I still remember all the hype surrounding the first Chronicles of Narnia films, The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Widescreen Edition), and for all that hype, for all that attention it received (due mainly to the success of

The Narnians and the Pevensies
"You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve," said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth. Be content."    –Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, by C.S. Lewis   In Disney's first sequel to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, director Andrew Adamson decided to make a darker, more adult film than the original entry film into the Narnia …

If you liked The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, I think you'll love The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Technically, as a piece of cinematography, the latter stands as a marked improvement over Andrew Adamson's first Narnia film. Better acting, better special effects, even better soundtrack. The plot also has more twists and turns, from the raid on the castle to the internecine fighting among the Telmarines.    The Pevensie kids feel more comfortable …

Prince Caspian Poster
So far, The Chronicles of Narnia films have kind of been like a hidden gem in a recent line of epic films.  Though The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and its sequel film, Prince Caspian don't match up to such films as the The Lord of the Rings Trilogy or the Harry Potter films.  However, these first two films have brought some fun entertainment and great stories that I loved growing up as a kid.    One year has passed since the four Pevensie children have left the …

This 2nd installment in the Narnia movie franchise picks up one year after the end of the first movie; in England time. When our four heroes return to Narnia, it is actually a millenium later. But the ensuing movie is just as exciting as the first one, with even some romance thrown in at the end. Like any good fantasy movies, Prince Caspian has several grand battle scenes, creatures of various species interacting with each other in English, great swordfighting, and some double-crossing, both by …

Prince Caspian is the follow-up to the the very popular Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe of the Chronicles of Narnia book series.    Full of battle scenes, some pretty spectacular. Small children may struggle with fearful images. One scene was particularly sad involved several Narnians caught behind enemy lines awaiting death.    As in the first movie loads of creatures make up Narnia's population. All had been living underground since shortly after the kings …

"The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" is the sort of movie that has one group of people it caters to and one it does not. The group the movie does not cater to is the book lovers. These people are the sort of people who read books and complain about the movies for insignificant changes. These are the sort of people who say they would have no problem with the movie if it was under a different title, a logic I've never completely understood, seeing as how book huggers still complain about "The …

There are probably two camps who will be interested in this `Narnia' sequel: Those who have read the C.S. Lewis allegorical fantasy series, and those who have not, but loved The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Full Screen Edition).     To be brief, our inquisitive British children return to `Narnia' caught in a time warp that finds it in ruins and its remaining citizens dispirited and scattered. Their enemies, the Telmarines,' have a new heir born …

I've read and heard numerous complaints about "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian." Two of the primary ones are that a) the magic is gone and b) the film is too violent. For those who've actually read the stories that this film and the previous one are based on, this should come as no surprise. "Caspian" is intentionally a darker, more violent and "magic-less" film. It's a story where the children (except young Lucy for the most part) turn away from …
