Our church rented out a theater to see Prince Caspian today. Believe the hype. It’s that good.
If you’re a huge C.S. Lewis fan, you will love the way the director tells the story – not giving all the details of why certain things are going on early in the film. I love the fact that this film can stand alone – not tied or linked to the first film.
And you can also tell that Walden Media had the money this time around for the CGI. The effects in this film look so much better than the first one.
The story was tight and well-told. The acting from the Pevensie children is spot on. Ever watch a film with children actors and cringe because their performance was either a wee bit over the top or completely lifeless? (Think Annakin Skywalker in any of the prequels.) Not here. The kids in this one nail their characters – even Prince Caspian.
Highly recommend the movie.
