The Chronicles Of Narnia – The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe is the huge 2005 book-to-film adaptation of the popular C.S. Lewis book. It tells the story of four children who travel to the magical world of Narnia through a wardrobe in an old manor. In Narnia, they discover they are part of a prophecy to rid that world of the wicked White Witch.
Narnia is very true to the book, which places it firmly with a childrens audience. I’m sure if I was 16 years younger I might give this film 6 hearts for being a magical adventure, but somehow talking animals, Santa Claus and young knights in very bright and shining armor just doesn’t work for an older audience.
Even so, the film is so well made that it deserves at least three hearts just for that. Go see it with your son or daughter, I’m sure they’ll love it.
