'Prince Caspian' is Inappropriate for All Agesnew

Of the 144 minutes that the new fantasy-adventure film The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian runs, there isn't a single clever one to be found. There are, perhaps, three or four that sufficiently stimulate the eyes. This leaves at least 140 more to be bored by, to laugh at, to be further bored by and, finally, to plan an escape from.

'Prince Caspian' is a Satisfying Visit Back to the Fantasy Worldnew

Andrew Adamson's film version of the C.S. Lewis book, though it suffers from many of the same flaws as his 2005 adaptation of the first Narnia novel, expands and contracts the story in just the right places to transform it into successful summer-blockbuster fodder.

Go Back to Narnia with 'Prince Caspian'new

It's a little long, a little boring, but not entirely without visual inventiveness. Your mileage may vary depending on whether you're squiring tykes (sure, why not) or going by yourself as a grown-ass man or woman (don't bother).

Flawed Fantasynew

Much like Trix cereal, The Chronicles of Narnia is for kids.

Holy Bankrollernew

Pious Phil Anschutz has more than money at stake in the $150 million production of C.S. Lewis's beloved Christian allegory.

If I'm Lion, I'm Dyin'

If you and your kids aren't already admirers of the book, Narnia just may bore the crap out of the whole family.

Knights in Armoirenew

The new film version of the first of Lewis's seven Narnia volumes plays like The Lord of the Rings with training wheels.

If We Could Talk to the Animalsnew

Fusillade No. 1 in Disney's presumed seven-film adaptation of C.S. Lewis' beloved children's tales is marred by dodgy CGI work and windy pacing.

Out of the Closet

With a fairly faithful adaptation of the first book, the Chronicles of Narnia film franchise is off to a strong start, thank Aslan.

Good Battles Evil in Winter Wonderlandnew

As much as the director hews to the letter of C.S. Lewis' book, he ultimately finds the transcendent spirit elusive.

In Like a Lambnew

The effects are effective in this mild but pleasing Christian allegory. So why couldn't they have replaced those bloody kids with CGI?

The Power of Belief

Narnia becomes real in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

"Shrek 2" Avoids the Expected Sequel Pitfallsnew

Freed from the need to be the cocky "anti-Disney," SHREK 2 gets hilariously comfortable in its own skin.
