Dawn Treader has recaptured Narnia
Being a fan of the first two films, I will admit I was more concerned with story lines and film quality than I was with the "book-based" material.
That said, I know every Narnia purist wants to see the series go back to its roots. Dawn Treader, while perhaps taking some liberties again, stays true to the themes more so than all the others perhaps, certainly moving closer than Price Caspian and more in line with LWW.
The visual effects are stunning. I would agree that the 3D is certainly nothing to blow your mind, but that said--these special effects would look good in black and white.
Out of all the characters, and there is a vast array, I have to hand it to three characters. Aslan, Reepicheep, and Eustace.
Aslan's character is majestic as always. You do get a chill of excitement the moment you first see him. Everyone does, kids to adults.
Reepicheep is so adorable that I think everybody falls in love with him and is cheering for him and heck, he takes the place of leading man.
Last, Eustace. Will Poulter does such a great job and I guess the best way to describe his acting and character in the film: bring on the Silver Chair! I look forward to having him in the next two films.
If you liked the first two movies, you'll enjoy this one. If you love Lewis' Narnia, you'll love Dawn Treader.
Go ahead, tell yours friends, gather up the the kids, and allow yourself to be transported to that magical land called Narnia.
