Review

Our Score
Wonderful escapist fantasy flows nonstop in the best instalment in the Narnia series to date. Seasoned director Michael Apted (Enigma, Gorillas in the Mist) deploys the usual mix of adolescent derring-do, impressive special effects and sledgehammer moral lessons with a captivating dynamism that refreshes the mythic underpinnings of CS Lewis's adventure. In what is the most Tolkienesque of the tales, the two younger Pevensie siblings, Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and their insufferable cousin Eustace (an absolutely brilliant Will Poulter) are whisked aboard the buccaneering ship of King Caspian (Ben Barnes, who is significantly better than in the previous film). Caspian is on a quest to find the seven lost lords of Narnia, banished by his evil uncle, and he needs the children's help to find them and rid the land of a green mist that makes dark thoughts reality. They must contend with evil slave-traders, a creepy invisible mansion, a mysterious golden dragon and a scary sea serpent on their perilous journey, making for a thrilling and swashbuckling spellbinder.

Summary

Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to the magical world accompanied by their selfish cousin. They join their old friend King Caspian as he sets sail across the sea in search of seven of his father's allies who had been banished years before, but along the way they discover an evil force is growing in strength. Fantasy adventure, with Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Will Poulter and Ben Barnes.
