I had the opportunity to see the latest installment of the Chronicles of Narnia yesterday and am happy to say that I liked it – quite a lot.
The 3D fantasy film is visually stunning and the narrative very close to the original story. If I said something like the seven deadly sins and their opposites in virtue, would I be revealing too much? Faith, reconciliation, love, and family? Oceans, islands, and mists, ah ha! A lion, dragons, and mermaids, ah ha!
If I said that the return of the beloved talking mouse (Reepicheep) is the most entertaining example of anthropomorphism I have seen this year, what would you think? And that the young actor (Will Poulter) chosen to play the irritating cousin Eustace was a brilliant casting choice?
Watch this space for a review on December 10, the film’s release date.
