Prince Caspian has shown me a much darker, cooler side of Narnia, even if it is less deep in terms of storyline.
For the most part, the film remains faithful to C.S. Lewis' book. Though it utilized some stylish character development, inner conflict, and a romantic subplot, I found that this didn't so much stray from the novel as expand on it. The result is an enhanced storyline fit for a moviegoing audience. When I left the theater, I felt an urge to turn back in and watch it over again.
Final Score: 8 out of 10
