Reviews - What do customers think about Prince Caspian - Three-Disc Collector's Edition + Digital Copy?
marketing appeal vs. substance Feb 17, 2010
It had been awhile since I'd read the books, and having enjoyed the first Narnia film I was looking forward to seeing this. Yet, I was left with an empty feeling upon watching it. I was unable to put my finger on the reason for this, so I went back and re-read the book.
A-ha! The film diverges so vastly from the book that what we are left with is yet another example of why Hollywood has struggled so much in recent years to make big budget, quality, substantial movies. They have a tendency to sacrifice heart and substance for flash and marketing appeal.
Now I know film versions of books have to take some liberties, even with relatively short books like Prince Caspian, in order to try and come in around two- to two-and-a-half hours in length. That usually means sacrificing some character development.
But what we have here is character RE-development. They changed the characters of almost all the main players, one suspects, because some executives focus-grouped it and decided to make it more appealing to the teen market. (The irony of 40-50 year old executives sitting around deciding what teens want or don't want is amusing.)
I won't list out all the vast changes this film made with the book; other reviewers here have done an admirable job with that already. But I will say that in just about every serious deviation the filmmakers took away from the book, it was a step in the wrong direction. What we are left with is a rather hollow stringing together of fantasy/action/romance elements, many of which were simply the invention of the filmmakers and had nothing to do with Lewis' book. Let's hope they do better with the next Narnia film.
The Best Movie Ever Feb 1, 2010
I am ten and I thought the movie was AWESOME. It has lots of action in it and it is a fun move. I would watch it all day if I could. It is a AWESOME movie.
for what it was, it was pretty good Jan 31, 2010
But the thing that had me checking out emotionally was the assault on the castle about midway through the movie. I just wasn't buying that the army of beasts and birds would have been repulsed:
1. The main army was supposed to have been bivouacked somewhere, leaving the castle thinly defended. 2. Element of surprise intact: the castle defenders were supposed to be sleeping, yet here here they all were suited up lickety-split in chain mail! 3. The soldiers would have been freaked out seeing centaurs and talking mice. 4. The gryphons should have been lending some formidable assist, yet after depositing their cargo, they pretty much disappeared. 5. A key commander, Prince Caspian, knew the castle grounds intimately and would have been able to brief his troops superbly.
Because I couldn't take the result of this battle seriously, I was unable to take the rest of the movie seriously and so kept watching the minutes count down until it ended.
Abominable Jan 30, 2010
90% of it was not in the book. Strong misunderstanding of the book or it's themes.
Basically this was a scifi channel movie (ie terrible) with better actors and special effects.
Whoever was responsible for this movie should be tied to a pole and whipped, then allowed to go back and play dungeons and dragons by himself in the basement.
They could have found someone who could resonate with the book and bring it forward in a new light. Instead they found someone who felt a need to make it a nonstop meaningless sequence of stupid fight scenes.
If the movie is only 10% based on the book, don't use it's name. Try and sell your sad movie on it's own merits.
A Terrific Sequel Jan 25, 2010
I loved reading these books and I loved the movie. Prince Caspian is an adventure and an action movie. It's a great sequel to the first. I loved the land they were in, the woods were beautiful. The cast are very good actors and the costumes were awesome! Anyone who liked the first movie will love the sequel. The villains are wonderfully created and the Pevensie children are as good as in the first movie.
