Overall enjoyable, but the f/x seemed a bit thin at points, as when Lucy and Susan were riding on Aslan's back. The Christian theme was played down, which to my eyes was all to the good. The actress who played the White Witch was the only real standout.

VERY GOOD, BUT TOO MUCH LIKE LORD OF THE RINGS!

Aslan is the king of narnia, the wisest of the land and a lion king. this story is set in a secret world behind a closet of a house.
i think this story is good for advanced readers who like a lot of adventures and sword age stuff.

Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter stumble through an old Wardrobe found in the home they were went to for refuge during the bombing of London during WWII. On the other side they find a fascinating world where the animals talk, and it is always winter but never Christmas due to the domination of an evil

queen. They fulfill an old prophecy where four human children assist Aslan the Lion in overcoming the queen and restoring the kingdom to its rightful stage. Very definite allegory on the redemption theme of the New Testament, with Aslan being a Christ like figure, who gives his own life for the crimes of others thus defeating the power of the evil witch queen, symbolic of the devil.

I enjoyed the book but it was somewhat different from the movie version

Well acted, excellent CG Animation, and sticks pretty much to the original story.

I thought this was wonderful!

It's the first film I'd seen in the cinema for at least two years, and despite my dislike of cinemas in general, it was well worth it. A Brilliant adaptation of 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' that looks far more modern and believable than the 1980s BBC version,

good though that was.

Highly recommended - and we bought the DVD as soon as it came out.
