"The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian"

When the first film The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe came out in 2005, I gave the film an A. I was so looking forward to the sequel that I went and saw it right away. So far in my book, it's still a better fantasy series than The Lord of the Rings.

CON: Prince Caspian starts off a year later in England where the four siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are summoned back to Narnia by Susan's Horn that Caspian uses to seek help against his evil uncle who wants Caspian dead for his own reasons. With the help of hidden Narnians, new friends, and of course the lovable lion Aslan, the siblings are the only hope in restoring Narnia from extinction.

While not as great as the first, this film film still has its moments. Great war and fighting sequences, beautiful CGI, and colorful characters make this film great to watch. The only downsides to the film is some scenes where a little too dark and the movie ran a little too long. Overall, I still recommend this film. B+
