The Chronicles of Narnia – Prince Caspian

When is a movie a good movie? And when is it a bad movie? There are many occasions when I watch something and…. I just don’t know.

What was this film about? A society fighting for what is theirs or the folly of incredulity and unbelief? Probably both. I vaguely remember the first film. I know some of the characters; the little girl, the archer elder sister, King Peter and their rebellious brother who was seduced by the Ice Queen. And of course the heroics of Aslan with the Messianic implications or allusions… but not having read the Lewis books, I probably couldn’t relate to everything.

I did enjoy the moral lessons that allude to belief, and fortitude. Aslan says, “But why did that stop you from coming to me?” To which, young Lucy apologizes. But I’m not sure I buy the idea of these teenagers fighting grown-up and supposedly more experienced infantry men. But if the rest of the audience can appreciate a mouse taking down foot warriors with finesse, I guess its not that hard for me either.

But, still as of now, I’m not sure I get Prince Caspian. Maybe I’ll revisit this in the future.
