Chronicles of Narnia 3
We can all think of exceptions I’m sure, but third films in trilogies rarely maintain the impetus of a promising start. Not the case the Voyage of the Dawn Treader however, this epic tale is brought to life with an adventurous romp through this magical land.
Lucy and Edmund are spending a dreary holiday with their cousin Eustace, a mean spirited little tyke. They are unexpectedly drawn into Narnia when a painting of a ship on the wall of Lucy's room comes to life, and the three children fall into the ocean to be rescued by the Dawn Treader.
Once safely on board, Lucy and Edmund are greeted by their friend Caspian (now King Caspian) who has undertaken a quest to find the seven lost Lords of Narnia, as he had previously promised to Aslan. Lucy and Edmund are delighted to be back in Narnia, but Eustace is less than enthusiastic. Reepicheep is also on board, having vowed to find the seas of the "utter East".....
It’s a great story, really well told and credibly acted by a mainly young cast. Good for all ages, it’s the must-see family movie of the month, whetting our appetites for the next one; roll on Narnia 4!
