One can tell it's a Disney production when a sword pierces a chest and comes out of it without any blood on it. I expected a far worse movie actually, but Barnes is a bit ridiculous. The duel scene is quite good.
I loved the first one and was disappointed by this one. To much pointless action and not enough content. I zoned out for at least a quarter of the film and all I missed was fighting. The only point I got excited about the fighting was once the fight took place between the two kings. Debating if I should even watch the third.
Sequel that feels a tiny bit darker and more adult in tone and has better fights. The kids feel more relaxed in the film and seem to have "grown" into their characters, but it feels like the film takes forever to really kick into gear. The human villains are not that interesting either and the one single scene with the White Witch is superior to everything else happening in the film.
Never watched Narnia before. We watched this one in class (summer holidays were close) and it's just so ridiculous. They killed people for no reason and the characters were just so annoying, the only one who was fun to watch was the antagonist.
On second viewing... It wasn't that good (Ben Barnes, you got me the first time!). The movie could've been great - the story's great - but the editing's not very smooth, the acting's terrible and the cheesy dialogue makes me cringe.
Great film continuation. Stands not so great on it's own, but why should it? I loved the length and the attention to detail. I read the book and saw the film, and I personally enjoyed the breadth the movie gave the story.
