Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the ice age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the woolly mammoths.
Ben Stiller returns as night watchman Larry Daily, now a successful business man, who gets back to the museum just in time to find that he needs to get his friends out of trouble. This new installment takes us to the Smithsonian, and introduces us to new characters, such as Amelia Earhart, General Custer, and many more!
I thought the first one was great, but felt the second one was in a foot race to show as many of the old characters and new ones as fast as possible and get to the end. But then again, when are sequels ever as good? Let me take that back, Terminator 2 was awesome. And Lord of the Rings. And several others, but this one was in a frenzy to go nowhere. Stop. Take a Breath. Develop a more interesting script. I'm sure the writer had something better in mind and the studios just plucked the eyeballs out of it until it was just what it became in the end. This could have been one of those franchise things that do more than just make money. Yes, it will make money, but it could have been sprinkled with a little more TLC. Let's get back to basics. You know the movie is going to sell. You have the money and all the actors to sell it. Why not just make a movie with a better storyline. The best part of the movie was the trailer.
