Plot: The Pevensie siblings return to Narnia, where they are enlisted to once again help ward off an evil king and restore the rightful heir to the land's throne, Prince Caspian. Runtime: 150 mins Release Date: 16 May 2008
I was fortunate enough to be invited to a screening in Washington, DC prior to release. This production has what it takes. Great production, true to the story line, lots of nail biting and fascinating.It never felt like it was over two hours. I'd have to say that Walden did an amazing job of staying true to the storyline and that Disney's magic is back. I will recommend this movie and absolutely plan on adding the DVD to my library when it comes out. I may even go and pay to see it again.The only recommendation I have is to continue with the other 5 books. I've seen every one of <more>
the productions of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and it took Disney to make it right. Now they've continued with Prince Caspian, and I'm anything BUT disappointed. As long as the storyline and production keep improving, it can only get better.
Even More Fun Than the First - a Winner! (by Tokugawa)
Saw it today.As good as the previous one, and just as moving.Narnia has been taken over for several generations by a foreign human people who have settled there, the Telmarine. Prince Caspian's father, the king, has been killed and the uncle is the usurper. Can you say "Hamlet"?! . Caspian is on the lam. Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan are summoned to help by the prince's horn as they are needed. Caspian is found hiding out underground with the Narnians whom the Telmarines thought were extinct.Alliances were formed with talking animals and various creatures, even some dwarfs <more>
and minotaurs previously allied to the White Witch--all oppose the foreigners in Narnia. Various exploits and battles ensue.Aslan shows up briefly later in the film. The White Witch even has a brief scene.This film is much less allegorical than the first, with much less sibling discord among the four English youngsters--Peter, Edmund, Lucy and Susan. They are all far more self-assured. especially Edmund.Action sequences are top notch, and it seems they used fewer digital "people" than Lord of the Rings, which was OK: if you saw a cavalryman in the distance it was a real man and horse.Prince Caspian, interestingly, several times was a real screw-up, Peter and Edmund basically saved his throne for him. At least Aslan showed confidence in him.What was oddest was that although this film was made in New Zealand as usual! , Slovenia, and Poland, all the Telmarines looked and sounded Spanish! ??? They all had Spanish accents, and even Caspian, played by Ben Barnes born in London spoke with a Spanish accent. The Italian actor who played Miraz said that the director wanted such an accent from all Telmarines.Best new talking animals: Trufflehunter badger , and Reepicheep sword wielding mouse with attitude .As others have said, "The new Narnia can be seen as a parallel to the modern world, in which old beliefs are scoffed at. "Who believes in Aslan nowadays?" asks Trumpkin dwarf when he first meets Caspian. Those who "hold on", like the badgers, are praised: this links with Lewis's views on religious faith".I can't say more about this film without giving away spoilers. But it was top notch.
Prince Caspian is more than a worthy sequel to the first Narnia film! (by Chronicles_Of_Narnia)
I was able to catch a test screening for Disney's highly anticipated Chronicles of Narnia sequel.The theater was PACKED, At least 350 people from the greater Chicago area but all the flier said was that the screening was for a Disney summer movie, nothing more. When the crowd was notified that the film being screened was for Prince Caspian, there was a loud cheer. Mark Johnson, the producer of the film was in attendance taking notes on the audience's reaction.The audience cheered pretty loudly at the end of the film, and Mark Johnson, producer of the film asked what people liked and <more>
disliked. People said they liked the fact that this film had a lot more action, had better pacing, and better visual effects. All in all, I would say I really enjoyed this film, a lot more than the first one. I liked the visual creatures a lot more, the action, and I really enjoyed the storyline. Despite a questionable release date, I would say that this film, will really please fans of the first film, and those who enjoy fantasy films in general. I would give this film a 10 on a scale of 1-10. Long live Aslan and long live the Chronicles Of Narnia!
Having just come back from a screening of Prince Caspian, I can honestly say that I got the movie fresh in my mind...and it was amazing! Not only was it better than the first in every way - the story, the acting, the screenplay - but it managed to have more of an edge without sinking into the pitfall that movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean have slipped into.Meaning that unlike the Pirates sequels don't get me wrong, I love Pirates, but this is something that bothered me a little , the makers of Prince Caspian did not believe that to make it better and more exciting, they had to gore <more>
and bloody it up. Instead, while it is darker, the blood and gore is kept to a bare minimum considering this is an action flick.Anyway, that now aside, I highly recommend this! It's a great movie - great action scenes, a tad bit of romance but not overly so, and a good plot. Plus the young cast are even better in this film than they were in the first, and Ben Barnes - well, it's right that he is the title character,because he very nearly would have stolen the floor from underneath the original kids if they were even the slightest bit less perfect William Moseley was the weakest of the five, as he was in the last movie, but he still stepped it up quite a bit .Granted, I've not read the books, so I don't know if this is as dedicated to the book as many fans would like it to be. Then again, most movies adapted from the books never are. However, if they can find it in them to accept changes for theatrical purposes, I'm sure even the most die-hard fans will admit it "wasn't bad."
I caught this as a screener and am so happy I did. Whether or not you read the books you'll probably like this if you're into this genre. It's got a bit of something for most everyone; even a little romance.I found the CGI better than the first. The writers captured the significant parts of the storyline and included some comic relief. There were definitely moments of achieved catharsis with the audience. The actors and actresses seemed to be much more at ease in their roles than the first one and exuded the characteristics of each of the roles well. I wouldn't recommend <more>
little kiddos seeing this because of the violence no blood just some obvious fighting however I don't understand why most parents take their kids to a movie I an adult would watch. When I was a kid a Minotaur would have given me nightmares for weeks. Those around me liked it even more than I did. There were maybe a couple of points where they didn't clearly portray the tone of the group or a characters attitude; but that's young acting maybe. All in all, really well done.
Warning! May contain spoilers!Finally saw it!!! I have been waiting for this for ages.. and i wasn't disappointed. I also haven't re-read the book in ages, so maybe i don't remember it that well, which may be why I liked the film so much, but hey i went there to be entertained, and i was. The plot stuck to the basic story as far as i could remember, and added a few scenes more. Maybe the Susan-Caspian plot shouldn't have been there, seeing as how we know what happens with Susan later on in the series. In fact, Susan's character was a little different from what I expected, <more>
especially after her slightly whiny "mother wouldn't allow this" scenes in LWW, but anyway.. she definitely compensated for not having joined the battle in the first one here. : I hope they do bring her back in the Last Battle and not leave her where the books did. Come on, she wasn't so bad.. I liked the scenery too, even if they may have been a little "stock travelogue", cos they were pretty awesome on the big screen. Music might have been a little similar to the LWW, but it matched the pace of the movie well. Edmund and Lucy's characters did not have as much screen time as Peter or Susan, but definitely made their presence felt. I loved the scene where the Telmarines stopped short at the sight of Lucy at the bridge! Peter seemed a little arrogant at first, especially when he leads the Narnians in the failed attack at Miraz's castle, but it was in keeping with the character that was fighting at the beginning of the movie, and he did realize his mistake, as did Susan, especially where Aslan was concerned, so I think that made it OK at the end. And I totally loved the character of Reepicheep, and am looking forward to the next installment!For Narnia, And for Aslan!
Director Andrew Adamson, who helmed the first installment in the series, after making his career primarily in animation including the original "Shrek" seems decidedly more comfortable in his role as a live action director this time around, and he handles the scope and the pacing of this epic adventure with a polished skill that is a very pleasant surprise. In addition, Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley and Anna Popplewell, returning as the Pevensie children, have matured, not only physically, but in their acting ability. There is a deftness and self assuredness this <more>
time around that surpasses the original, and makes for an extremely entertaining film.The story begins with Prince Caspian Ben Barnes , nephew of Miraz Sergio Castellito , the leader of the "Telmarines," the human population that is now the dominant race in Narnia, fleeing for his life when Miraz's wife gives birth to a son. Miraz usurped the throne from the rightful King, Caspian's father, and now that he has an heir of his own, he wants Caspian out of the way for good.Meanwhile, back in London, Peter and his siblings are trying to adjust to life in the real world. Peter is getting into fights because he can't bear people "treating him like a kid," after growing to adulthood before leaving Narnia, only to return at the exact age he was when he first stepped through the wardrobe. But in less time than it takes to board the London underground, the Pevensie's are once again transported back to the magical kingdom - only it is not the place they left. Over a thousand years have passed, and the castle of Cair Paravel lies in ruins. As the children struggle to find out what has happened, they stumble upon a Dwarf named Trumpkin Peter Dinklage , who is being taken prisoner by abusive Telmarine soldiers. Susan, who doesn't seem to have had much opportunity to show off her finely honed archery skills at home in Finchley, eagerly takes the opportunity to rescue Trumpkin from his captors, and the surly old dwarf whom Lucy and Edmund nickname "The D.L.F.", or "Dear Little Friend," explains that all is not well in Narnia. It seems that not long after the High King Peter and his siblings left Narnia, the land was plunged into a dark age, and the Telmarines have ruled for hundreds of years with an iron fist. The days of the many creatures, including talking beasts, living in harmony together, have long since passed, and no one has seen or heard of Aslan the Lion in centuries. And what's more, the trees are no longer friends to the Narnians - they are just normal, everyday trees.It doesn't take long before the children meet up with Caspain, who is hiding out in the forest with a misfit band of followers, and soon the young would be heroes join forces in a plot to reclaim Narnia for the Narnians, and place Caspian, the rightful heir, on the throne.The film moves along at a steady, exciting pace, with skillfully staged action and suspense that will have audience members on the edge of their seats, and while in general it stays very faithful to the source material, there is quite a bit of added embellishment to make for a grander and more spectacular epic, with added battle and chase sequences that are deftly handled and add to the story and the level of excitement, where in less skilled hands they could have easily overtaken it. The level of action, and violence, is really quite a bit stronger than in the first film, and the film has a darker, grittier tone, which makes it something of a surprise that the filmmakers got away with a PG rating for what is clearly a PG-13 film. As mentioned before, the actors really step up to the plate this time, in particularly Keynes and Moseley as Peter and Edmund. But the most delightful performances come from the great Peter Dinklage known for his brilliantly subtle turn in "The Station Agent," and perhaps best remembered as the diminutive author of children's books in "Elf" and Reepicheep, a bold and chivalrous mouse voice of Eddie Izzard , who really steals the show. The effects are absolutely top notch, and in the final third the movie reaches such a fever pitch of excitement that it recalls Peter Jackson's "The Two Towers," arguably the most exciting installment of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.So, in the end, "Prince Caspian" may not be the profound allegorical tale that "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" was, or reach the same level of magical wonder, but it more than succeeds at what it sets out to do, and strongly indicates that there is a future in the Narnia franchise.
This movie isn't half as charming or eloquently magical as the first, but it engages nonetheless.There's something about the young actors chosen to play the four major roles- Peter, Edmund, Susan and Lucy. They badly make you wish you were in their shoes. The film in itself is often reminiscent of LOTR, but the major difference being in a childlike simplicity this one retains.Aslan, despite not having much of a role, manages to be the most striking character, and Lucy is as lovable as she was in the first film.The battle scenes are brilliant, as are the landscapes. The power politics <more>
and senselessness of violence are dealt with a lot maturely in this film as compared to the first installment. At some point you realize you want at least a dozen more films revolving around these four siblings, and to be able to access Narnia for ever.The only thing that ruins this film is this strange invasion of Hollywood-like romance as a very annoying little subplot, and the sudden intrusion of a ridiculous song at a climactic point.Apart from that, I am pretty sure any fantasy-hound would enjoy this film a lot, and especially so if you're a big Lewis fan.I know I am.
More LOTR than CSL but still great fun (by yoel_marson)
Taking kids to the cinema can sometimes be painful but this trip was as much for me as them; i have read the book countless times and have just finished it with my eldest daughter.The film was more LOTR than CS Lewis and don't know what he would have made of this interpretation. There was just enough in common with the book as to transfer the empathy that i have built with the characters over the last 25 years. There were some changes and original scenes that were totally unnecessary and the tone of the movie was much darker and action oriented than the book.The upside is that aside from <more>
that it was a very well made film, almost up there with LOTR in terms of great fantasy and infinitely more appealing to anyone over 12 years old than Harry Potter.After fictitiously originating the pevensies from finchley in the 1st movie, he has now made the telmarines Spanish and that sort of worked OK. The pevensies and caspian were close to what i would have imagined and the supporting cast of dwarfs and mice were excellent.Another 2 years to wait till Voyage of the Dawntreader; would have liked to have seen Horse and his boy next. Mind you, in theory that could be done in 10 years time with the same actors.All in all, a great improvement on the lion, the witch and the wardrobe.
