The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
It’s not really fair that both Edmund and Lucy are stuck at their rotten cousin Eustace’s house for the holidays. Especially when Susan’s visiting far-off America. They’d do anything to get out of it…
But in all the unfairness, there is this painting…it looks Narnian. It is of a ship sailing, and Eustace hates that picture.
But it comes to life.
Suddenly the children are thrown into Narnia, and an adventure that is perhaps even more desperate than their previous ones.
Caspian is sailing the ship, and with his and Reepicheep’s help, they must help to save the islands from a cruel green mist that devours the people.
It will tempt them. It will do anything to stop them from breaking its hold. It will try to stop them from retrieving all seven swords that, when laid at Aslan’s Table, will crush it forever.
But if they don’t succeed Narnia will be in danger…
In My Opinion…
Movie Classification: PG
My Rating: 4 Stars
This is a great movie. The first time I watched this I was a little disappointed. I was expecting something to top Prince Caspian, and it just wasn’t as good. It was funny, and interesting–definitely not boring–but a little disjointed. And it wasn’t very true to the book. However that did make it a more interesting watch.
The next time I watched it, I liked it a whole lot better. I didn’t think it was better than the others, but I thought it was much funnier and smoother. I found two major mistakes, mostly in the voices; for instance, Caspian didn’t have as pronounced an accent, and some of the other characters had very English accents when it would have been better for them not to.
The visual computer graphics and the costumes were brilliant, just like the last two Narnia movies. I was a little annoyed by the music. The basic “Narnia” theme song was missing until very far into the movie, and when I heard the joyous sounds of that song, that remind you of victory, I thought, “That’s what was missing!”
I think it doesn’t disappoint the Narnia fans, and though it isn’t as good, it certainly doesn’t let down Narnia’s good name at all.
