Trivia

In the beginning of the movie, when the four kids go to Narnia, they are in the Strand subway station. In German, "strand" means "beach". When they arrive in Narnia, they arrive on a beach. See more »

Goofs

When the bear charges Lucy on the beach, Trumpkin seems to pull a bow out of nowhere. However, when Susan nocks an arrow to shoot the bear, Peter, Edmund, and Trumpkin are clearly seen running to the boat to grab weapons. It's entirely feasible that Trumpkin found the bow and arrow in the boat. See more »

Quotes

King Miraz: Tell me, Prince Edmund...
Edmund Pevensie: King.
King Miraz: I beg your pardon.
Edmund Pevensie: It's King Edmund, actually. Just King, though. Peter's the High King.

Edmund Pevensie: I know, it's confusing.

Pretty endearing
16 May 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie isn't half as charming or eloquently magical as the first, but it engages nonetheless.

There's something about the young actors chosen to play the four major roles- Peter, Edmund, Susan and Lucy. They badly make you wish you were in their shoes. The film in itself is often reminiscent of LOTR, but the major difference being in a childlike simplicity this one retains.

Aslan, despite not having much of a role, manages to be the most striking character, and Lucy is as lovable as she was in the first film.

The battle scenes are brilliant, as are the landscapes. The power politics and senselessness of violence are dealt with a lot maturely in this film as compared to the first installment. At some point you realize you want at least a dozen more films revolving around these four siblings, and to be able to access Narnia for ever.

The only thing that ruins this film is this strange invasion of Hollywood-like romance as a very annoying little subplot, and the sudden intrusion of a ridiculous song at a climactic point.

Apart from that, I am pretty sure any fantasy-hound would enjoy this film a lot, and especially so if you're a big Lewis fan.

I know I am.
