I read the books as a kid, but that was over 25 years ago. I have forgotten everything except some of the titles. So it is safe to say that I am not a huge fan. Disney, having passed on Lord of the Rings, chose this series as a competitor.
Swing and miss….
While the first one released had a good story, this one appears to have left its story behind. Everything that was made important was dismissed quickly in the final 10 minutes. Maybe it’s my improv training, but a story that has that happen is not satisfying. The 4 heroes did nothing to solve their own problems; they kept hoping Aslan would show up.
My advice: skip it; save the 2 hours for much better movies out this summer…
