The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Evil Has Reigned For 100 Years...
Join Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter, four siblings who step through a magical wardrobe and find the land of Narnia. There, the they discover a charming, once peaceful kingdom that has been plunged into eternal winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis. Aided by the wise and magnificent lion Aslan, the children lead Narnia into a spectacular, climactic battle to be free of the Witch's glacial powers forever!
I have described the films about Middle Earth as a way of escaping reality, as a way of letting my mind go, and just disappear for a while.
I have just started reading the Narnia books for the first time, and watching the first film again made me realize how much more this story lets my mind go.
It must be because this is a story first taking place in our real world, transcending into a fantasy world. Watching the kids walking through that wardrobe and entering the world of Narnia, just reminds me so much of my childhood and how I used to daydream myself into other worlds (hell, I still do, dammit!), and living out my fantasies and doing all the things I couldn't do in real life.
C.S. Lewis' amazing imagination has truly created a universe that I can relate to, and I will forever cherish the books and the films for that.
The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of books that is very dear to me. I have always had great pleasure reading them and I think they represent a benchmark in fantasy literature aimed at children and young adults. The books explore themes of faith (in oneself and higher powers) and the strength of family on a deeper level, all drenched in an epic fantasy backdrop that alludes to myths and religion.
On to the film then. I'll start by saying that it looks absolutely stunning. The cinematography is beautiful and most of the CGI is fine and it sports some great set pieces. And that's about it. It has nothing of the…
Though skewing decidedly younger than its literary-fantasy brethren of Lord of the Rings and the latter Harry Potters, the first Narnia film deserves to be part of the conversation of worthy lit-to-film fantasy adaptations. An altogether lovely, epic production that effectively captures the Narnia of my imagination, the film works hard to enchant and does so enough to be memorable. Its ulitmate success, however, may lie in whether or not its audience is able to tolerate the inconsistent charms of the Pevensey children.
As a personal childhood favorite (along with the 1988 version and the books), it's hard not to be a little biased concerning these Narnia films. I tried this rewatch to have as open a mind as possible, but still found it full of charm, and just a nice film. Aesthetically very beautiful, the cinematography is quite excellent and creates the world of Narnia quite well, disappointing no childs imagination. I think all the child actors did quite well, especially considering they were unknowns. Tilda Swinton is the standout as the evil White Witch, but I had never before realized Liam Neeson voiced Aslan, and that was a nice surprise. Perhaps a flawed film in some ways, no not quite as epic as Harry Potter or the Lord of the Rings as some have noted, but excellent nonetheless.
As a long-time lover of C.S. Lewis' classic fantasy series, I was happy to see this beautiful transition into film. Liam Neeson as Aslan's voice is perfect!
Peter's such a little bitch and I wish someone killed him
While bombs fall down in London 2 world war,four inglish siblings are sent to a house were there is a doorway to a magical world.
With a lazy acting this movie ruins the C.S LEWIS book and books about the subject.
The feelings of the book are not transmitted in the correct way,and the only thing that is well done is the scenery wich doesnt let you blink.
An extraordinary film based on a classic book written by none other than the legend himself, C.S. Lewis. Very underrated by all the movie critics. The message it brings speaks very loudly and a great amount of viewers overlook it!
Narnia is a fun fantasy film with cool action and awesome effects.
I cannot help but compare this franchise with the Harry Potter franchise. By rewatching the latter, I can honestly say that the Chronicles of Narnia is severely lacking in creating a fantasy world that stimulates imagination. There is no compelling score to rouse your emotions nor characters that make you care for their adventure. It also doesn't help that the actors deliver extremely dull dialogue and are cookie cut out Disney actors.
This is the only film I have seen of this franchise and honestly, I'm tempted not to continue the sequels.
Fiel al libro y hecho para entretener al publico masivo.😒
Here's the pitch:
Tilda Swinton. James McAvoy. Ray Winstone. Jim Broadbent. Plus, Liam Neeson as Jesus.
Lord of the Rings-style battles. We'll even film in New Zealand!
The cutest British kids we can find.
Talking beavers. And wolves. And a minotaur! A MINOTAUR!
From the director of "Shrek."
You still with me?
Pretty fun family fantasy adventure, the kids can be a bit much at times but I think for the most part the effects hold up. Swinton makes for a good villain that is really hate able.
