The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
The Fourth book in the Chronicles of Narnia series is actually the second book written by C.S. Lewis and now is the second film appropriately titled Prince Caspian. 1300 years have past in Narnia and the four Pevensie children played by Georgie Henley, Skander Keynes, William Moseley and Anna Popplewell are mysteriously called Back to the wondrous land of Narnia. With the help of the kids the rightful heir to the throne Prince Caspian played by Ben Barnes fights to save his life from the evil King Miraz played by Sergio Castellitto. The story is almost nonexistent in this movie and where would you put it with 2 hours of action in a 2 hour and 15 minute film. It really doesn’t matter that I’m blind because the character of Prince Caspian was colorless and the whole movie was dark. (Not black but hard to see even by sighted people.) The acting by the four kids is better in this second film but what will sell it are the grand battle scenes. The entertainment value is so high it’s off the charts and this movie should be able to stand on its own. Some of the magic was lost in this sequel but I will still give it a B- rating.
This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
