This week's reviewed movie is:
Chronicles of Narnia--Prince Caspian

Prince Caspian will probably work for most of the hip targeted audience.

However, by not seeing the first (2005) installment of the Chronicles series, I had not a clue what was going on to understand any of the magic.

The good news is that it has great imagination, where anything is possible.

So take it at face value and enjoy all the fun things -- paying attention to all the bloodless battles for the kiddies.

Then connect all the dots after you're back home for the plot.

Prince Caspian is the disappointing sequel to 2005's Chronicles of Narnia -- disappointing considering the source material is rich with plot and character development (both of which are sorely lacking here).

It's 1,300 years later in Narnia, and the director expects us to care about CGI characters we know nothing about.

Added to that is PG violence and extended battle sequences.

Was it worth the trip back to Narnia? Only if you want to be bored.

This movie is a magical fantasy adventure Disney film for older children -- a darker, battle-heavy sequel that is a better cinematic experience than its predecessor.

This is a film that showcases the attempt by Prince Caspian to win back his lost kingdom.

It is a fierce and somber battle epic, a fairy tale that has enough rousing moments to make it worth seeing.
