Movie Review: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Lucy and Edmund are transported back to Narnia through a picture, along with their cousin Eustace.  They arrive on the Dawn Treader, which is Prince Caspian's ship.  They join him in the search for seven missing warriors and a missing family on a remote island.  

In addition to their search, they must each deal with personal temptations meant to deter them from their mission.

As has been discussed in recent press, there are numerous religious references, particularly through Aslan, the Lion.  There is a scene where he heals someone, another where he promises to always be watching over Lucy and the others, and "Asland's country", a peaceful place that is a destination from which you don't return, is an obvious reference to heaven.

There is never a dull is continually entertaining and non-stop action.   I feel it is the best of the 3 Narnia movies.   My nephews, age 12, also loved it.

Excellent!  Don't Miss it!

The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe cost US$180m to make and grossed over US$745 worldwide. Prince Caspian had its production budget ramped up to $225m but only ended up grossing $420m worldwide, and it took its time getting there.
