The drawings of the characters during the end credits are the same drawings that appeared in the book. This is a tribute to Pauline Baynes, the series' illustrator, who passed away on August 2, 2008, at the age of 85. See more »
When dragon Eustace gets stabbed by the sword, he gets stabbed on the left side of his body. When he turns into a boy again, he touches the right side of his body as if the sword hit him there. See more »
Way above my expectations, but watch the 2D version
This film is about the Pevensies and their cousin entering Narnia again, in order to help Prince Caspian gather all seven swords of the lords to fight against dark forces.
"The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is a good film. It has elements for everyone to enjoy, such as clean humour, excitement, dangers and also psychological elements. The plot is straightforward and easy to understand. It is also filled with excitement, especially the battle with the dragon is quite breathtaking. The plot and the characters engage me a lot. This time, the Pevensies have matured, and hence are a lot less annoying. They even become interesting characters as they battle to overcome their own inadequacies. This subplot is aimed at adults, but it still can be understood by children at face value.
The 3D though, is a lot less thrilling than the film. Most scenes do not have noticeable 3D effects. The scenes that do have 3D are quite underwhelming. There are little scenes in the film that makes use of the 3D technology. I can safely say that watching the 2D version would be just as enjoyable than the 3D version, and you can save a few dollars by doing so.
