Starring: Ben Barnes, Liam Neeson, Tilda Swinton, Simon Pegg
Plot: Lucy and Edmund Pevensie make their third trip to Narnia, this time with annoying cousin Eustace Scrubb (Son of Rambow’s Will Poulter). The adventure in Narnia’s fantasy world this time involves hooking up with Prince Caspian again to sail the seas searching for seven missing lords. As this is Narnia, their travels bring them into contact with furry friends friends, foes and all manner of funny looking yokes.
TM Rating: Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Gorillas in the Mist) takes the helm for the third adaptation of the Chronicles of Narnia and like the previous two he does a decent, but not outstanding job. The story races along; almost too quickly as the Dawn Treader sails from fantastical island to fantastical island. The monsters, including a sea serpent, are more ambitious than in the two previous Narnia movies. One of the biggest plusses is the addition of a child actor who has genuine talent (Eustace Scrubb), his performance along with Simon Pegg’s sword wielding mouse Reepicheek perks up the tall tale no end.
7/10 ““ The Narnia films have never scaled the heights of the best of the Harry Potter movies, but it’s hard not to like their enchanting mix of fantasy and cutesy creatures”¦even if some of the child actors’ performances can be as stiff as Narnia’s petrified forests. Not up to the books, but then what movies are? Solid family fun.
