Not Faithful to the Book
10 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many reviews say this is a "charming" movie and a good adaption of the book. I think a movie that completely changes the message of the book is not a faithful adaption. It was most likely an attempt to secularize it, which I think would make George Macdonald roll over in his grave. It would probably make the biggest Macdonald fan in the world, C.S. Lewis, start spinning as well. It's not even like the book is extremely overtly religious, so I don't get why they had to sterilize it.

You don't even have to watch the movie to see that the message is not the same. The summary on IMDb says it all: "Irene must rely on her own magic to save Curty, and in turn the entire kingdom." The focus is for her to solely rely on herself and her own power. That's actually the exact opposite message of the book, which is much more charming than this crappy movie.
