Review: "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian"

((Rated: Three Spiff Caps ... Well worth the price of admission))

They’re baaaaaaack! And this time it’s personal. That’s right … Lucy, Edmond, Peter and Susan return to Narnia and guess who is waiting for them? Evil no-good-nicks, that’s who. Even though it is only a year later for our young heroes … hundreds of years have passed on Narnia. A lot can happen in that amount of time including, it seems, a major change in Narnia Homeland Security. But don’t worry! Our loveable gang of four has picked up a key, if reluctant, ally … Prince Caspian. The magical creatures are back including a very humorous and dangerous sword-slashing mouse. (Think “Puss In Boots” from Shrek, only a rodent.) Conflicts … you got them. Battles … you got them. A nice message … it is there for the taking. If you liked the first version … you’ll like this one just as much. After watching the final battle in Narnia, I rushed home to watch the final clash in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Yes, it is true … TREES are our friends!!! One final note … The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is two-and-a-half hours long. Apparently that is not that long in Narnia time, but your kidneys may be in a non-Narnia time zone. I’m just sayin’.
