Fun story, Great CGI, Eddie Izzard was wonderful as the mouse. I think this was Warwick Davis' best roll.

Gave it three stars. It was a good movie, but The romantic subplot between Susan and Caspian was extremely heavy-handed and not really something I remembered from the books, and that detracted from my enjoyment.

It had a somewhat darker tone than LW&W, and I don't think that they balanced that with lighter scenes as well as they could have. One thing it did well was to set up the problem of Peter and Susan "growing up" too much for Narnia compared to Lucy and Edmund.

Nothing groundbreaking or epic but I thought it was fun.

I liked the movie. The Caspian and Susan thing was a tack on. But sure why not. I thought it was cute. Was a bit bloodier than the 1st movie. I did like that though.

There's an even bloodier cut floating around out there.

Saw this last night and enjoyed it a lot. Everything was better and more confident this time around, especially the kids' acting and the battle scenes. Eddie was great, as stated by just about everyone, and of the stuff I hear was tacked on (I haven't read the book) I thought the White Witch scene worked well.

I thought the White Witch scene worked well.

Definately was a highlight, but then again, Tilda Swinton is always great to see on screen.

Finally got some time to see this and I enjoyed it very much. Everything was done very well and I especially liked the way they built up the tension between Peter and Caspian. Also the fight between Miraz and Peter was nicely done. I can't really find much fault at all. It delivered about what I expected. Bring on Voyage of The Dawn Treader!

Beheading =/= R rating?

The Motion Picture Association of America gave the film a PG. To earn this rating, which the filmmakers were contractually bound by Disney to do, Adamson altered a shot of a fallen helmet to make clear that it did not contain a severed head..

Even at sea in an auditorium packed with hundreds of Kool-Aid drinkers and drunk, this thing still sucked.

What didn't you like about it? I thought it was pretty solid. Nothing ground-breaking, but I was entertained.

What didn't you like about it? I thought it was pretty solid. Nothing ground-breaking, but I was entertained.I am not a fan of the genre to start with. How many stories can be told about some English kid finding a doorway to another world anyway?

With this film though, the characterizations I did not find to be very strong. I had not the interest to care about the fates of anybody. This always makes a film hollow to me, regardless of how strong the various technical aspect might be.
