Prince Caspian (2008)
I admit – I am a big fan of the books. I have always liked them, and I enjoy the sense of wonder that infuses them as well as the subtly adult treatment of larger themes. Andrew Adamson has done a pretty decent job of adapting these stories for film. Despite what many people have said the Christianity of the books is neither overt nor exclusionary – I am no Christian and yet I find nothing repellent in them, or in these wonderful adaptations. Prince Caspian is the weakest book in my opinion, and the movie tends to reproduce its faults, though director Adamson takes quite a few liberties with the plot and characters – I really don’t remember Peter being quite so petulant in the books…Even so, this is worth seeing for the fantastic battle scenes and the appearance of Reepicheep the valiant and glorious mouse.
