Dawn Treader's action sequences, though frequent, don't wander far afield from those found in classic swashbucklers starring Errol Flynn. And they're far less traumatic than those seen in the previous Narnia film, Prince Caspian. There are swordfights aplenty, and a few slave traders are thrown off buildings or take tumbles into the drink. But there's no blood and no painfully obvious deaths.

There is, however, a pretty scary sea serpent that attacks the Dawn Treader as it sails toward Dark Island. The serpent is toothy, ugly and ever so mean, and it might well frighten younger moviegoers right out of their landlubber shoes. Also, Eustace, as a dragon, gets stabbed with a sword, and we see the remains of some of the lords Caspian is searching for. (One of them has been turned into a statue of gold. Another is a skeleton.)

The film tames down Eustace's transformation back into a boy considerably from what the book indicates. Rather than showing Aslan ripping the flesh off a little boya scene that would've likely taken the film into PG-13 territory, according to Walden Media president Michael Flahertythe scaly disrobing is treated to a one-step remove, where the skin magically falls off as Aslan claws the ground.


"Fool," "pipsqueak," "coot" and "sap" get tossed around in a name-calling context. There's an interjection of "oh god."


A sea-serpent can be considered hideous and disturbing.

A magical evil power re-enacts the characters' fears and hopes, these scenes can be unsettling.
