The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

(USA, 2008, 146 minutes)

A year after finding themselves back in wartime England, the four Pevensie siblings are spirited back to the magical land of Narnia, where they find a thousand years have passed and they must help the young prince Caspian to reclaim his throne from the hands of an evil regent to bring peace to the land once more. The second book in C. S. Lewis' popular children's series becomes a dullish, interminable, charmless adventure that resolves itself in a series of well-handled fight and battle scenes and, despite reuniting all of the cast and crew of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, fails to recapture its charm and magic.
