Goofs

When Susan is writing Lucy and Edmund a letter, the camera pans to a high quality, color photograph of the four siblings in uniforms. Color photography was only rarely used by professionals even 5 years after WWII ended and would never have matched the modern clarity of the prop photo. See more »

Why bother adapting a book if you're just going to rewrite the plot???
11 December 2010 | by mistelsSee all my reviews

I was SO looking forward to the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and was sorely disappointed.

The film felt like they took the original story, chopped it up, then threw it in a blender with seven magical swords and some ridiculous green mist!

While the film stayed true to main themes of the story, much of the character development and purpose to each of the minor island stories was lost. Unfortunately this meant that most of the magic of the story was lost as well.

I gave the film 6 stars due to the redeeming qualities that were the stunning visuals, some excellent acting (notably by Will Poulter as Eustace), and a beautifully executed final scene.

If you haven't read the book, then you may enjoy this film immensely, but if you are a true Narnia fan, don't go in with very high expectations.
