The Chronicles of Narnia (2010): The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: review: 7/10

Susan has discovered her sex appeal in the USA and is therefore not invited to Narnia (sex not being Mr Lewis's cup of tea): instead brattish Eustace, a cousin with whom the children are staying, is taken on with Prince Caspian's Voyage.

The effects are supurb, and the children not too obnoxious but the narrative is somewhat episodic: this a fault traslated from the original text.

It is also difficult for the film-makers to figure out quite how moralising to make the films: again, this issues from the books themselves. Aslan, with blow-dry mane, makes his occasional appearances to instruct and reassure, quite why and when is never really explained.
