Movie Recommendation: The Chronicles of Narnia



I forgot to do a review of this movie. So I will just say that I highly recommend The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. It is truly inspired by the Bible. All I will say is that there is a reason that the movie is rated PG and not G. Depending on their maturity and if they are easily frightened, it may be too much for children under 7 or 8.

The special effects are great and the war scene is graphic but tame in comparison to Lord of the Rings. It moves slow at times and you may understand the characters better if you've read the books because in the movie version they are formulaic and two dimensional. Almost to the point of being "Cut & Paste" personalities. But that doesn't take away from the movie and in the end, if you enjoy fantasy movies,you will like this one.

    Hey James,

    Yes it was a great movie. And if y'all have kids, take them. But let them just enjoy the story. If they see a deeper meaning in it, good. If they see it as just as great story, that’s fine too. Far too often adults feel the need to attach significance to stuff that kids just want to enjoy.

    Yeah, I enjoyed it, but if you've seen Lord of the Rings, the battle seen will look like de ja vu.
