Prince Caspian

This is the second installment of The Chronicles of Narnia; Prince Caspian.

This is the main character Prince Caspian, a prince that was chases out of his own castle by his evil uncle. For me this is the first time I watched this Narnia movies. I haven't watched the first one but I played the PS2 game to the end. If you haven't seen or heard the first movie, there some questions that may pop out. I am not going to spoil the movie for you but here a just a few observations. In the first movie if I am not mistaken, there were only 4 humans in the first movie. The rest are talking animals or half man half beast or dwarves (these are Narnians). However in the second movie the Narnians was thought to be extinct, even most of the animals, well.. are just animals who cannot talk. The land of Narnia is now being ruled by these Spanish looking and talking Telmarines who like normal humans inted to take over the world. I was hoping to see some talking animals luckily a talking badger and mice was there. Other thing was, in the first movie, the good guys were centaurs, and the half man half goat. While the good guys were dwarves and these half bull half man. Animals are split between them with wolves as the bad guys while other cute lovable critters are the good guys. In the latest movie, they are all on the same side. This was supposed to be a family and children movie, but talk about violence. Lots of people dying, fighting, backstabbing and dark magic and that was the first movie, this ones is even more gruesome. I like it very much with a mix of playfullness, cheekiness, sarcasm, comedy and that warm fuzzy feeling when you watch a family movie. A definetly must see movie :).

The verdict: Has the Lord of the Ring Feel but with cuter furrier animals.
