C.S. Lewis's classic novel The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe makes an ambitious and ... more

long-awaited leap to the screen in this modern
adaptation. It's a CGI-created world laden with
all the special effects and visual wizardry modern
filmmaking technology can conjure, which is fine
so long as the film stays true to the story that
Lewis wrote. And while this film is not a literal
translation--it really wants to be so much more
than just a kids' movie--for the most part it is
faithful enough to the story, and whatever faults
it has are happily faults of overreaching, and not
of holding back. The Chronicles of Narnia: The
Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe tells the story
of the four Pevensie children, Lucy, Peter,
Edmund, and Susan, and their adventures in the
mystical world of Narnia. Sent to the British
countryside for their own safety during the blitz
of World War II, they discover an entryway into a
mystical world through an old wardrobe. Narnia is
inhabited by mythical, anthropomorphic creatures
suffering under the hundred-year rule of the cruel
White Witch (Tilda Swinton, in a standout role).
The arrival of the children gives the creatures of
Narnia hope for liberation, and all are dragged
into the inevitable conflict between evil (the
Witch) and good (Aslan the Lion, the Messiah
figure, regally voiced by Liam Neeson).  Director
(and co-screenwriter) Andrew Adamson, a veteran of
the Shrek franchise, knows his way around a
fantasy-based adventure story, and he wisely keeps
the story moving when it could easily become
bogged down and tiresome. Narnia is, of course, a
Christian allegory and the symbology is definitely
there (as it should be, otherwise it wouldn't be
the story Lewis wrote), but audiences arent
knocked over the head with it, and in the hands of
another director it could easily have become
pedantic. The focus is squarely on the children
and their adventures. The four young actors are
respectable in their roles, especially considering
the size of the project put on their shoulders,
but it's the young Georgie Henley as the curious
Lucy who stands out. This isn't a film that wildly
succeeds, and in the long run it won't have the
same impact as the Harry Potter franchise, but it
is well done, and kids will get swept up in the
adventure. Note: Narnia does contain battle scenes
that some parents may consider too violent for
younger children. --Dan Vancini

Magical Narnia

AdvantagesGreat adaptation, good special effects

DisadvantagesSome will find it too long

"When the Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, are evacuated to the countryside during the war, they think they are in for a deeply boring time. Then during a game of hide and seek, Lucy goes into a wardrobe to hide and finds herself in a magical, snowy world called Narnia. At first, none of the others believe her, thinking that she is playing make-believe. But then they all end up in Narnia, which is in the middle of a Civil War, with ..." Read review

Magic!

Advantagesentertaining, funny, sticks to the plot of the novel

DisadvantagesOne line I would have changed, Aslan could have had more presence

"I loved the books for The Chronicles of Narnia, I loved the BBC TV adaptation, so there was no way I could not go to the cinema and watch this when it came out. It's definitely aimed more at the children, but I think it's a family film that all ages will enjoy, especially those who have liked Narnia in its earlier incarnations. I found the story entertaining, the acting excellent (especially considering the age of two of the lead actors) and the ..." Read review

Let's hear it for Aslan!!

AdvantagesGreat film, great cast, great effects

DisadvantagesNone for me

"I remember reading the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis when I was 10 years old and I loved the book. I also read Prince Caspian but didn’t go on to read any more of the series after that as two of the main characters left at the end of Prince Caspian and I remember feeling as though I had lost two of my friends! I was thrilled when I heard that Walt Disney had decided to make a film of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for release ..." Read review

DVD Description

Director Andrew Adamson gives a new dimension to C.S. Lewis's enchanting story with this long-awaited Disney adaptation. As the story begins, Mrs. Pevensie in order to keep her children safe during World War II sends Lucy (Georgie Henley), Edmond (Skandar Keynes), Susan (Anna Popplewell), and Peter (William Moseley) off to stay at a professor's country estate. Away from London and under the care of a strict housekeeper, they are instructed to stick to themselves and stay out of trouble. But when an innocent game of hide-and-seek leads young Lucy to a spare room containing a large wardrobe, she discovers something that will change their lives forever. Inside the wardrobe there is a world frosted with ice and filled with magical beings. Known as Narnia, the land is stuck in eternal winter at the hands of the cruel White Witch, played with great force by the pale, strong-featured Tilda Swinton. When she steps back into reality, Lucy struggles to convince her sceptical siblings of the things she's seen. After much disbelief, the others finally enter the world as well, learning that the creatures of Narnia have long been waiting for humans like themselves to appear and break the witch's spell. But in order to be of any help to the lovable talking beavers, fawns, foxes, and centaurs that they meet, the four will have to face betrayal by one of their own as Edmond cracks under the witch's tempting offer of unlimited Turkish Delights. Under the leadership of the great lion Aslan (voice of Liam Neeson), can Lucy, Edmond, Susan, and the oldest, Peter, prove themselves heroes in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil? High-budget special effects, impressive performances by the film's young newcomers, and beautiful set design move this film far beyond previous television adaptations.

Professional reviews

Review The spirit of the book is very much intact....[The film uses] available technology to capture both the mythic power of Lewis's tale and, even better, its charm. (New York Times, )

Swinton is magisterially wonderful as the witch-queen of Narnia. (Sight And Sound, )

Its epic scope and elaborate battles will raise comparisons with Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy... (USA Today, )
