Reviews :

Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley set the silver screen afire, or I can say, ‘awater’ in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader. Made in 3D, the film version of C.S. Lewis’ book couldn’t have been made in a better way than this. The charming lands of Narnia allure all the fans and call for another voyage.

I call it a voyage, as you won’t get to see much land; it’s an odyssey – set on the perilous waters that sweep the shores of Narnia. Prince Caspian’s entry would charm all those, who loved the handsome hunk, Ben Barnes. Moreover, the innocent charm of Georgie Henley as Lucy Pevensie – the youngest of the Pevensie siblings – would tug at your heart-strings, yet again! One thing that sets this one apart from the previous two releases is that, you don’t get to see either the mighty Peter or the archer Susan. But, you won’t miss them as Michael Apted, the director of this one, has doled out a movie that you would be compelled to watch.

It was love at first sight when I saw the trio of Lucy, Edmund and Eustace, their cousin, being sucked into the blue waters that came crashing down on them from a wall-painting! Awaiting them in the other world of Narnia is the more handsome Prince Caspian, the ever-righteous and brave mouse Reepicheep, and a whole lot of surprises as well as horrors! This movie oozes simply amazing visual effects put in by Angus Bickerton and Jim Rygiel. Eustace, the ever-complaining kid, who is unwillingly thrown in the middle of this watery adventure, gets transformed into a dragon.

The awesome effects made it look all the more realistic and there would be no one, whose heart could resist going away to him. The cast has pitched in another brilliant performance as Dawn Treader, their ship sails under the command of Prince Caspian to find the seven lords that the malicious Miraz had once banished from the lands of Narnia. Aslan, the mighty lion with a booming voice makes another appearance. Lucy is again lucky as far as Aslan’s love is concerned, as he guides and cautions her on this treacherous voyage.

The couch-clinging fight with the sea-serpent is one of the most well-executed fight sequences that I have ever seen, equaling the fight between Harry Potter and the venomous Basilisk in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The misty seas are so enticing that they would leave you asking for more as the movie nears its climax. I was overcome by the urge to watch it again, back to back, right after its first watch! You would never realize that the filmmakers aren’t following the sequence that C.S. Lewis penned this series in. It’s all so intricately woven, so well-crafted! It belongs to the very few movies that do justice to their authored versions. Amazement – a world that falls short if I try to express what I feel like after watching this movie.
