CS Lewis is often described as an "English writer", but in fact he was an Irishman who spent most of his life in England. The Voyage of the Dawntreader is perhaps the the most Irish influenced of the Narnia books, and not only echoes the Irish writer Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", but also older Irish myths such as the voyage of St Brendan and the voyage of Maelduin, which are known as "immrana" in Irish.

There story is great, but I wish it had had a larger budget. 10/10
The Chronicles of Narnia are, without doubt, some of the best books ever written. Turning the books into live-action movies would be very hard to do because there is a number of special effects that would be hard to do, and all of the animals talk. Today thanks to CGI and big budgets we would probably be able to make Narnia on film. 11 years ago, with a small budget it would have been very hard to do. Sometimes it looks great, but sometimes it is really hard to belive what you are seeing. The actors do really well. They were really comited to the movie. Alex Kirby's direction is also great. The movie sticks well with the books, good thing it did or a lot of people would be mad! Also the locations are EXCELLENT. So what I'm saying is this movie is really good, if you don't compare it to todays standards. 10/10
