Simply, No, 23 January 2013
Author: WakenPayne from Valhalla

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.
