      The movie Prince Caspian is the second book in the Narnia series and takes place some 1000 plus years after “The Lion, the witch, and the wardrobe.” In the movie, Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) escapes from his kingdom into the forest of Narnia when his greedy uncle, King Miraz plots to assassinate him after his queen gives birth to a son. It is during his escape that he blows Susan’s magic horn, which summons Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy from modern London to an island in Narnia. There, they rescue a dwarf

      who later helps them find the other Narnians.

      Intially, King Peter and Prince Caspian clashed when it was time to devise a strategy to defeat the evil King. Many Narnians die during the haphazardly planned battle, and those who are left alive retreat to their stronghold. With Azlan missing in action, the young royalties must rely on their own strengths to defeat King Miraz’s army. King Peter challenges King Miraz to a duel which would buy them time, just so that Lucy can find Azlan and ask for his help. Despite Peter’s victory, the ranking officers kill the King and blame treachery on the Narnians. During the ensuring battle, many Narnians are again wounded and killed. They fight until the very end, when Azlan finally enlists the help of the swaying trees. Recognizing defeat, the ranking officers try to retreat but are ultimately defeated. In the end, Caspian regains his throne and restores the peace among humans and Narnians. Azlan explains to the people how they are not so different from the Narnians in terms of their origin and gives them the option to start ...

      a new life elsewhere.

      I enjoyed this movie because I like mythology. Seeing the centaurs, winged creatures, and mice fight for Narnia and for Azlan was very entertaining for me. I haven’t read the book, but the movie was deep enough to convey part of Narnia’s rich history. Personally, I think the movie’s message was that humans, in their thirst for power, have often times exploited nature. In our modern world, many forests and animals have been destroyed and killed for the sake of wealth and power. While it is necessary for humans to

      use natural resources such as wood and water to survive, the movie also suggests that we ought to respect the trees, the rivers, and the animals.

      The actors in the movie portrayed their roles very well. I did not like how some characters had heavy accents, but I guess it just added to the authenticity of the tale. The soundtrack was very nice and complimented the scenes very well. Over all, I think children would enjoy the film very much. Adults who like mythological creatures and fairytales will also enjoy this movie.
