Goofs

(at around 40 mins) In the scene where catapults are being built, there is a two-person saw in use. In actual use, the worker "in the pit" below the sawn log should be covered in sawdust and wood shavings. However, the actor in the shot is clean. See more »

Pathetic follow up to the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
5 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I caught this while on holidays but I won't give any extra details for obvious reasons.

This will most likely go down as one of the most disappointing fantasty films of all time. I think Lord of the Rings is going to always be the best and hoped Narnia would at least come close but Prince Caspian has really dropped the Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was great but not groundbreaking. To be fair this movie was based on what I think was one of the worst books in the series. It was good but not as good as any of the others. Books can be expanded but not in a way which makes it completely boring. The action is dull and not interesting even though there's more of it but the visuals have improved. I liked the kids in the first movie but now they are already on my nerves especially the actor portraying Peter who came off as a snobby, insufferable bully. I hope that when Harry Potter ends the Chronicles of Narnia will be there to pick up all the fans but they need to radically improve. At least Michael Apted is doing the next one. Need IMPROVEMENT!
