Also Known As:
The Chronicles of Narnia (International: English title) (short title)
During the Nazi Blitz of England four siblings are taken to the country where they can be safe from the raining death. But
during a game of hide and seek they discover a magical world of Narnia through an old wardrobe.
But one gets involved with the White Witch who wishes to conquer Narnia, can the ancient prophecy stop the witch?
Right off the bat I can see the "religious" part of the movie, but honestly it's just the vague at best. I don't
think the creator of these books had a Jesus comparison when he created the lion character, I think some people are writing
way too much into it. But as for the story itself, I have been a fan since the BBC mini series a long time ago. But the
new version with amazing effects makes me like it even more, 9 STARS.
I also agree with Zedd and I also never say anything religious in the story. Frankly I still don't see it, but that's just
me. Maybe I'm crazy, but the story works, the effects work and the characters mostly work, there is one character I didn't
care for, but it didn't hurt it that much. 9 STARS
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STORY (The story works.)
+ CHARACTERS (Most of the characters were interesting.)
+ EFFECTS (Killer effects.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ ATMOSPHERE (Like we were in the world of Narnia.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- CONNECTION TO JESUS (I think the connection between the lion and Jesus is mainly in people's minds.)
- MINOR CHARACTER ISSUES (There are minor character issues.)
