DVD: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (PG)

Click to follow

The third Narnia installment is far superior to its abysmal predecessor, Prince Caspian, and sees the two younger Pevensies sucked into a nautical painting, landing on the Dawn Treader ship and saving Narnians once again from "evil".

Will Poulter is a delightful new addition as the pompous and annoying cousin Eustace and Ben Barnes is back as the now King Caspian. It's a mix of the Potter films and Pirates of the Caribbean, but only half as dark as the former and nowhere near as humorous as the latter. But, aside from the preachy religious overtones, it's an exciting romp that that the kids will love.
