Prince Caspian DVD Talk Review discussion

I couldn't agree more with the reviewer. The movie seems to take an eternity to get going with little payoff.

One of my biggest gripes is one of the strongest elements from the first movie that falls flat in this movie: Aslan.

With his pious air and preachy persona, he manages to bring what little levity there was in the movie to a grinding halt with his "if you had believed earlier" speech.

Another part I will spoilerize about Aslan...

Spoiler:
The battle at the ford with the already done Lord of the Rings water gushing is ruined even further by the water taking the shape of Jesus H Christ!


The reviewer is dead on with the lack of emotion put into the movie.

Don't think that I hate the series since I did enjoy the first film greatly, but this one is just a slow, preachy mess.
