Comments: I was surprised to discover that the first Narnia movie has a lower score than this one on IMDB. The sequel has the usual flaws for a sequel, lack of details and focus mainly on the action. There’s also a way too long battle scene at the end, not mentioning too violent considering the target public for this movie. Another major problem I’ve had with it was the new lead character. His plastic-like face is too expressionless for the part. The animals were cute though.

Rating: 7/10

the makers of Prince Caspian kept to the original story surprisingly well, all thinks considered... i heard they were going to make it into a silly pure-action flick, but thankfully this was not the case

I don't know, I haven't read the books... I'm only analysing from a cinematical point of view, and for me the half an hour battle scene at the end of the movie was definitely too long and too violent, reminding me in a way of The Two Towers.
