MTV Award (2008) The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Nominee, Best Summer Movie So Far
Review In Clerks II, uber-slacker Randal described the Lord of the Rings trilogy as a series of endless walks. One has to wonder what his reaction would be to the overwhelming ambulation in the two Chronicles of Narnia films. While The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe had origins and mythos to highlight, Disney's latest entry in the franchise, Prince Caspian, requires a more minimal setup. All returning director Andrew Adamson has to offer as a result is more shoe-to-footpath action, with the occasional CGI-sparked battle to break up the constant strolling...There's no denying one simple truth: if you loved the first installment in the cinematic realization of C. S. Lewis' veiled religious allegories, you'll adore Prince Caspian...Naturally, the battles win us over, though Adamson won't earn any awards for his busy, frequently flashy camera trickery with too much obvious animation in the fray...Indeed, the main problem with Prince Caspian is the lack of true transcendence. All great epics find a way to take the traditions and truisms that define their premise and amplify their meaning and sense of universality. As viewers, we suddenly recognize, and feel the innate power in, such small virtues. On the page, The Chronicles of Narnia thrived on such fiery faith-based fantasy. On film, said belief is rendered bland.

Review The sequel is livelier, with more action heat in it than The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe -- the first of the films being made from C.S. Lewis' seven Narnia books. But that 2005 box-office hit should have taught a lesson. Lewis wrote with a Christian agenda, and Walden Media, releasing these films through Disney, is similarly committed. Step up for Prince Caspian, and what you get is a PG rating, family values, battles without blood and an animated lion named Aslan standing in for the resurrected Jesus and voiced by Liam Neeson. No sense in complaining that you're watching Lord of the Rings lite. That's the point. So where were we? In Narnia, 1,300 years have passed. But a mere year has zipped by for the four Pevensie children...The British Barnes, 26, makes a dashing hero, despite wrestling with a Spanish accent. But human actors don't stand a chance against a sword-fighting mouse (voiced by Eddie Izzard) and assorted bears, badgers, giants, Minotaurs and centaurs -- all chatty as hell. Two exceptions are Peter Dinklage, as a smartass dwarf, and Tilda Swinton, fresh from her Michael Clayton Oscar, making a frustratingly brief return as the White Witch. They offer devilish fun...If anything, this sequel could have used more hellfire. You leave feeling covered in a blanket of bland.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News ...the kind of grandly old-fashioned entertainment we don't get enough of anymore.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times ...a more polished effort than "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"...
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter Several shades darker in tone than the previous edition...the return to Narnia still casts a transporting spell.
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun A glorious medieval war movie. It's about war as the ultimate pitch of conflict that tries men's souls, and women's, too.
Todd McCarthy, Variety ...a bit darker, more conventional and more crisply made than its 2005 predecessor.
