The Latest ‘Narnia’ Installment Does More Than Just Tread Water

Of all the recent, popular, fantasy book series that have been adapted into films since the initial launch of the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings films, C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia series is the only one that I have read all the way through. It has been unfortunate that I have not been very impressed by the first two film entries.

With that in mind, I had mixed feelings about what the next entry would have to offer. ‘Dawn Treader’ is my favorite book of the series, so an adaptation was going to have to work pretty hard to please me. Fortunately, I found this film to be the best so far in the Narnia film series.
