Storyline

Eustace is sent to a horrible school and finds a friend in Jill Pole, who's also running from the bullies and looking for a place to hide. The two of them are magically transported from the garden shed into the magical world of Narnia, where they are entrusted with a task by Aslan: to rescue the king's stolen son, Prince Rilian. Together with Puddleglum the Marshwiggle, they must travel north across the mountains, dodge giants, and journey down into the earth itself to rescue Rilian from the mysterious evil that holds him bound there.

Trivia

Rilian wears a mask over his face in this film, a device which does not appear in the novel. This was added to the story to keep the audience from immediately recognizing him, as Richard Henders also plays the part in a flashback earlier in the film. See more »

Simply, No
23 January 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This does not age well. Pure and simple. Unlike The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe I could sit down and watch that until the end. This however is much, much worse. The premise could have been okay but it isn't in execution.

For starters the acting is atrocious. In The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe that can be overlooked to some extent (mainly because it wasn't unbearable) but here it deserves a mention. It's like watching your household pet doing Shakespeare.

If that's not bad then the writing is even worse. I was completely unconnected to the plot. I couldn't care less about what happened to the characters. The dialogue is also awful.

Then you have even worse special effects than the first one (of which me mentioning that anywhere in a review is an achievement - just not in a good way). You have people in owl costumes saying "Tawee tawoo" repeatedly, The only effect that has even the remote chance of holding up to an audience today is Aslan.

I personally couldn't sit through this. But then again this is my opinion. I think the only entertainment value in this is laughing at the "Tawee tawoo" owls. But that loses it's novelty soon.
