Narnia: Movie Review

Just Saw The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. If you haven't heard about it (and who hasn't?), it's an adaptation of C.S. Lewis' book written in 1950.

Overall the movie is very good-looking, and the special-effects on the talking animals and mythical creatures was incredible. The acting is lacking a bit, but not nearly enough to kill the whole thing.

The wife appreciated that it mirrored the book quite well(the exception being the longer battle scenes - hooray!), and said that, "it's probably the best movie adaptation of a book I've seen in a good long while". The kids really enjoyed it, which isn't suprising considering the talking animals.

I've never read the book, but I understood that Lewis was a religious man, and that this story (and The Magician's Nephew) contains alot of religious allegory. The parallels between the movie and the New Testament interested this Bible-school dropout, but even if you don't care for religious imagery, you can still find it enjoyable.

Overall I'd say it was a bout a B+/4 out of 5 stars/two thumbs up, etc.
