''You're a mouse.''

''You people have no imagination! ''


The Pevensie siblings return to Narnia, where they are enlisted to once again help ward off an evil king and restore the rightful heir to the land's throne, Prince Caspian.


Ben Barnes: Prince Caspian

Prince Caspian is the 2nd installment of the Narnia series following The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
What follows is the Pevensie returning to Narnia after one year has passed for them, they possess all the memories of them growing up as Kings and Queens.
They return to Narnia to find it a new and changed land having endured a gap of 1300 years without them.

We are treated to a new people in the form of the non-magical, Elizabethan Spanish-like, depicted Telmarines.
Prince Caspian played by Ben Barnes, has an exotic Spanish flavoured accent that sounds more like Antonio Banderas. He's a handsome young new comer and a fine addition to a vibrant array of casting.
Sergio Castellitto as King Miraz Caspian's murderous Uncle is a good villain, ruthless and power hungry.

A battle between good and evil takes place in Caspian. Due to the duel aspect of the final battle, the writers decided to add a more straightforward siege to compensate for the machine warfare at the conclusion.
The scene reminiscent of a Minas Tirith battle from Return of the King, adds some nice weight and action, allowing the plot to progress a tad faster and be more interesting than without.

By utilizing it as a chance to show the fallibilities of both Caspian and Peter, it lends more credibility to the idea of resurrecting a former evil to help in the fight against the tyrant Miraz.

Caspian bears alot of similarities to Rings for examples the Telmarines look like Gondor people visually and we have Trees fighting and helping, not to mention a man made of water at a river scene that looked like Arwen's scene in Fellowship.
Although Caspian succeeds in feeling more darker and adult to it's predecessor The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe which was lighter, colourful and more kiddish and magic laden.

Directed once again by quaint director Andrew Adamson who utilizes the land of New Zealand with it's lovely landscapes and settings to breathe life into Prince Caspian the fabled story by Brit C.S Lewis.

Incredible creatures, immense battles, a mysterious Aslan and a White Witch trying to claw her way back into the realms of Narnia. Prince Caspian delivers a family film which can be loved by lovers of the books or family fantasy enthusiasts alike.

Pending Changes...
