A review on Narnia : Prince Caspian.

Overall, better acting and better fight scenes. I always thought that Prince Caspian would be around 10 years old when he left his uncle....in this they follow a passage in the book that mentions that he is in the same age group as Peter Penvensie.

Thank God for that!! Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian is very much what a prince should be. Handsome, dashing, articulate and most of all....perfect!! I love his eyes and his mouth, and the cleft on his chin....even his fake hair. The hair most of all makes him very handsome, but debonair...somehow. Reminds me of the King in TLOTR. Aragorn is what he is with the long black lanky hair. Without it, King Aragorn is just Viggo Mortensen and his own brown hair.

Ok, enough about the dreamy Prince Caspian...

For those that had read the books, please see the film. The interpretation is a bit different and the storyline is more plumped up. Never bad though, all are good. Very good.

Since the stepson of C.S. Lewis is around to make sure the story does not erred or even goes off by itself on another tangent, there are much more realistic scenes added in. The clashing of egos between Peter and Caspian, the repressed romance between Susan and Caspian, the women participating in the war...

The beasts are realistic, I love when one of the Minotaur said 'Shhh'...I thought it was CGI...nope. It was animatronics. Deng nice.

Overall, I would give 8 1/2 out of 10. A bit higher than the previous Narnia. Coz the producer and the casting director add another hunk (Caspian) to the previous Moseley (Peter). Yey!!!

For the boys, don't be sad. Susan played by Anna Popplewell is very sweet and....collected. Her lips can even rival the great Angeline Jolie herself. She is an actress to look for. Give her a few movies...films...and she will be a force to reckon with.

Ahhh!! Forgot, the other character that I was waiting for is Reepicheep. Very cute, hairy and at the end, nearly tailless. They bring him to life as what I always imagined him to be. Brave, daring and very egocentric. Coooolllll....

Now, waiting for Dawn Treader. Hope they put in Ben Barnes again. Let him wear a mantle to make him look older, but please...please don't let him wear a beard. I beg of you....no facial hair. Please la...all his handsomeness hiding behind facial hair? It makes me want to cry...

Hmm...do you know that he is part Welsh?? I never knew how a cold (climatewise) country can produce those hot guys. Grrr....

Dah...hehehe. Best woo. You can see it by itself, or to have the continuancy, watch the first dulu.

Sebab kalau idak, tak kenal White Witch and the risk that they took if she was resurrected.

Pegi la tgk.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad


To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
