3 Better than Wardrobe, no better than Potter.Trefusis | 21/11/2008 | See all Trefusis's reviews (243)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Top 10 Games Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer Top 100 Books Reviewer Top 10 Sport and Outdoor Reviewer After the fluffy Christmas feel of Wardrobe, the only way is dark for this slightly more adult sequel. At the most basic level this is the same film; kids travel into alternate world, have a battle, save the inhabitants, grow up, go back to earth, turn into kids again. There's a magical horn, an ice mirror and a lazier Aslan, but apart from a slightly better handling of action you could splice the two films together and not really notice. Performances seem a little better this time, and we are blessed with a proper baddie - even if the final fight rips off Gladiator something rotten. If you liked the first then you'll find nothing to put you off here.
