The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Tread
8 September 2012
Excerpt: Siblings, Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy (Georgie Henley) are on a journey with cousin Eustace Scrubb (Will Poulter). They join King of Narnia, Caspian (Ben Barnes), to rescue seven lost lords and to save Narnia from a corrupting evil that resides on a dark island.
Summary: A solid entry in the Narnia franchise, though the film often sacrifices story for action. The characters of Lucy and Edmund fully evolve from the previous two films, and the introduction of Eustace allows a new character to continue with the adventure.
Summary: I thought this was the best of the three just because of the character, Eustace. I wish, though, that it would've had the two older kids in it more as well as the White Queen. That would've made the movie better.
Summary: Less murky and dark than the film that precedes it, The Dawn Treader is often an energetic and fascinating adventure film. It also picks up on the themes in C.S. Lewis's book a lot more clearly.
Summary: This movie was a bit of a let down from the other movies. It didn't quite have the same pop to it. Voyage of the Dawn Treader was never my favorite of the books so I'm not surprised that it isn't my favorite movie either. It is just too much wandering around and getting lucky.
Excerpt: Voyage of the Dawn Trader (The Chronicles of Narnia) is such a good Adventure movie. A ship on a journey to solve a sort of mysterious case. A voyage that challenged their temptations and found each and everyone's fears, weaknesses, and limitations.
Why bother adapting a book if you're just going to rewrite the plot???

Summary: I was SO looking forward to the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and was sorely disappointed. The film felt like they took the original story, chopped it up, then threw it in a blender with seven magical swords and some ridiculous green mist!
Summary: It's been an overdose of fantasy for me in the last few days I guess. First, in anticipation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, I watched all the previous ones at a stretch. For this, I had to do a similar thing. Else how would it make any sense ???
Conclusion: It seems after the disappointment at the box-office of Prince Caspian Disney dropped the ownership of the series, only for 20th Century Fox to pick up the rights, apart from that nonthing has changed to this great fantasy series.
