Movie review: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

A worthy sequel to the first Narnia movie (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), Prince Caspian is also a very good family movie from Disney, even though it does have some violence, so parental guidance is important for the younger audience.

The visuals are again amazing, with giant battles and many creatures such as Centaurs, Minotaurs, Satyrs and talking animals (mice, badgers, lions, etc.). Dwarfs and Humans also have a big role here, of course.

The same four young heroes from the first movie are summoned by Prince Caspian to help him regain control of his future throne and restore order in a world that is much different this time around. Also, he doesn't quite believe the legends of the Four Kings & Queens is true. This is mainly because around 1300 years has past in Narnia while only one year has in our world.

The movie offers us many action scenes, touching moments, some morales and a fair dose of humour. I really enjoyed this movie and I think you will too, if you enjoy the genre of fantasies movies that this one is part of. I'm looking forward to the next "Chronicles of Narnia" chapter, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which should be out in 2010 with some of the same characters as Caspian...
