The Biggest in the Series, but Not Quite the Best.
11 January 2003 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

The Silver Chair, BBC's final journey into Narnia, is a solid and enjoyable entry.

Visually and Technically it is the series greatest achievement. The Underground World and it's people have been created excellently, as well as other sequences such as the giant's bridge. Of course we're still going to have those animals in costume. I really don't have much of a problem with this, but still, we don't need to flaunt hedgehogs that have no relation to the story. The Silver Chair is the only film in the series that has areas where the writing needs a little perk up. The pacing is fine until the last 30 minutes. It becomes almost hard to follow, and lost my attention a bit. Despite that the first 2.5 hours are absolutely addictive.

Locations, as always, are perfect. They are dead on to C.S. Lewis' books. I hope to get to some of these places in my travels. The locations for all the Narnia films are perfect.

Its kind of a shame that finale of the Narnia series is a bit of a let down, but a message still comes through. "I have different names in your world..." Probably one of the rare times children's entertainment actually gives you chills.

Acting- 2/2

Locations- 2/2

Script- 1.5/2

Visuals- 1.5/2

Total---> 7/10
