My Movie Review #1


The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
Movie number two.

Rated PG for epic battle action and violence.
(The action is pretty astounding and intense for a children's movie.)

Running Time is 2 hours and 20 minutes.
(I was going to be late for work if I didn't change into my work cloths in the theater :P)

Personally I believe it to be much better than the first one, it's darker and just a tad bit less kid friendly...But being such an avid fan of the series I don't really enjoy the way they changed around the story and characters for the movie.
But hey! It's hollywood! You must expect that sort of thing to happen, because of course, a movie can only go so far, whereas a book can take you places you've never been.
The CG is amazing, and I LOVE how they portrayed Reepiecheep the Valiant Mouse, which is much better than the OLD Reepiecheep in the 1988 Narnia movies from BBC.

The music score was very nice, but forgettable. Although I do like the last song in the movie, and I need to find out who was singing it.
The acting was so-so, nothing awesome, but good enough for a movie.
They did an amazing job of grabbing your attention and toying with your emotions...which I love in a movie. The action is worth watching, YES!
Yes, I did tear up in some scenes :(

All in all it's a nice emotional rollercoaster.

A cutesy kiddy action/fantasy movie, although I don't reccomend it for children younger than nine, I heared a few kids behind me whimpering on certain scenes. :/

I rate it B+ movie. (Out of A+ A- B+ B- C+ C- D+ D-)

ah yes, another cool thing is the costumes and scenery...the location was the best, and I fell in love with the intricate details of the weaponry and armory. ^.^
