I also looked forward to the sequel, it did not dissapoint.
The story-line was a little darker in content than the first ( which seems to be the trend at present, not that it's a bad thing )
The special effects were superb, on hi-def things just seem to be getting better and better.
It has to be a '5' star rating for it's entertainment value, it held your attention throughout.
During a period of 1,000 years, since the chidren were last in narnia, it had been invaded, many of the inhabitance had it seemed been driven away from their land or killed, 'narnia' was now being ruled by the ruthless uncle of the 'prince'--'caspian'
When the uncle had a baby boy delivered 'caspian' became un-needed and had to flee for his life.
As he left he was given the 'ancient' horn to summoned help, this re-introduces the former 'kings and queens' of the kingdom to 'narnia' to help rid the kingdom of tyrany.
Make no mistake this is without doubt a brilliant watch, a must for kids of all ages, it takes you to a land beyond your imagination,as do stories like 'peter pan' ( neverland ) and 'the wizard of oz' ( oz )
Everybody need a fanasy land to escape to in their mind at some point through their childhood, it expands the imagination, films like this 'harry potter' and others like it are great vehicles for this.
'Disney' esspecially, have given an inheritence of great fantasy films to watch and enjoy over and over, do you what, they are still doing it with films such as this....................enjoy

I was looking forward to this movie, this was one of the iconic books from my childhood. I have to say that I very much enjoyed it, however maybe not as much as the first film. The filming was excellent, with beautiful backdrops and surroundings, very good CGI and good acting. It's been so long since I read the books however, that I can't remember if this was faithful to the original though... will have to re-read them I think! The things that let it down for me were the comedy elements, the mouse-knights and alike fitted very much with a Disney film, however I thought that they were not necessary, and detracted from the story. Also the knights masks were straight out of the 300, thought they could have been more original. Word of warning though, not sure if I would let very small children see it though as there is quite a lot of violent deaths albeit no blood. Good movie, but not a 5 star effort for me. Blu-Ray looked excellent, crystal clear and very impressive especially on the panoramic scenery shots.

Firstly the disc this movies looks absolutely fantastic and with a lossless 7.1 DTS HD sountract sounds fantastic being almost reference quality, with most (as I havent watched them all) of the second disc bonus features being in HD.

But the film itself is not good so good. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is a book that almost everyone has either read or seen the cartoon or BBC mini series so it had a built in fan base. Prince Caspian however is not so well known. Its the second book in the series but in respect of the timeline is the forth installment which accounts somewhat for the story in Narnia jumping forward over 1300 years and was done as the director was afraid the actors would be too old in 6-7 years time to do the story if they went by the proper timeline of the books, which doesnt make too much sense as now the kids will be younger in the last chapter (Caspian) than in the second chapter (if they make it ) The Silver Chair (the fourth book published)

The movie just has none of the charm of the original, the acting is slighly wooden and the action scenes waterered down so much to get a PG certificate as to be thrill free. Its not a bad films per se just a pale shadow of the original and clocking in at almost 2 1/2 hours takes some getting through.
