The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawntreader

Director: Michael Apted
Year: 2010
Stars: Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Ben Barnes, Will Poulter, Simon Pegg (voice), Liam Neeson (voice)

I had wanted to see this before Christmas for a bit of a feel-good movie, but there just didn't seem to be time. Luckily, it was still at the cinema on after Christmas so I thought it would be good for a bit of post-Christmas cheer (I had been at work for a couple of days by now so needed some).

If you've read the Narnia books, you'll probably know the plot of the movie. Susan and Peter aren't in this one - this time it's just Edmund, Lucy and their annoying cousin Eustace who get sucked back into Narnia through a painting. They then have to help Prince Caspian stop the evil in Narnia from spreading by collecting a bunch of important swords.

The movie was exactly what I was expecting (although the 3D perhaps wasn't as beautiful as I had hoped), but if you're after a family adventure/ fantasy movie, you could do a lot worse than this.

Rating: 3 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
