Format: Blu-ray
First of all I have to say that this is the first Blu-Ray film I have ever watched and this technology does not disappoint. Everything was crystal clear and the sound so perfect that at one point when someone trod on a twig, I nearly jumped out of my skin.

The Telmarines have taken over Narnia and Prince Caspian who should rightly be the next King finds his life in danger when the Usurper, Miraz's wife gives birth to a son. His ambition is for his child to become King ergo, Caspian must die. His tutor gets wind of the plot and he escapes with Susans magical horn which when he falls off his horse and is threatened by dwarves, he blows. Back in England the Pevensey children are standing on a tube platform when they suddenly feel magic and before they know it, are back in Narnia. However, hundreds of years have passed since they were last there and things have changed for the worse.

Eventually they meet Prince Caspian and form an alliance to fight against the Telmarines. Elsewhere, Lucy keeps on seeing Aslan although none of the others believe her. She is however correct.

We meet a huge new range of characters in this film, Reepicheep the brave mouse, voiced by Eddie Izzard, Trufflehunter voiced brilliantly by Ken Stott and of course the DLF who ends up being Lucy's firm friend.

The special effects are very good indeed especially during the battle scenes.

If you wonder where Aslan is during the film, then you will have to watch it to find out. It spoils things otherwise.

In some ways, I preferred this film to the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe as its message isn't overtly Christian.

Format: DVD
Imagine finding a magical kingdom in another world... only to return over a thousand years later, and find it in ruins.

That's the whole idea of "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," a superb sequel to "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe." While it has a climax that goes on WAY too long, this movie shows us the darker side of C.S. Lewis' fantastical world -- with a heavy dose of Shakespearean villains, political intrigue, and some spectacularly epic battles.

It's been 1,300 years in Narnia, and the human Telmarines have invaded and driven the native Narnians underground. Aslan hasn't been seen in centuries.

As young Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) flees from his treacherous uncle Miraz (Sergio Castellitto), he's discovered by a band of Narnians, and accidentally ends up summoning the ancient Kings and Queens of Narnia -- also known as the Pevensie children. Though initially delighted to have returned to Narnia, the Pevensies are horrified when they find that their once-idyllic land has been nearly destroyed.

Caspian has been organizing a ramshackle army of native Narnians, but Peter (William Moseley) finds that fighting an organized, armed force is very different from battling the White Witch. And after a disastrous attack, the Narnians are facing almost certain destruction -- but Lucy (Georgie Henley) is convinced that Aslan can somehow save them, and restore the kingdom to Prince Caspian....

"Prince Caspian" is definitely a darker story than its predecessor -- good guys die, coups fail, the castles are grimy, some of the good guys turn bad, and a bleak, hopeless feeling suffuses much of the movie's second half.

This second film in the Chronicles of Narnia series, adapted from the fantasy classics written by C. S. Lewis, assuredly did not prove as popular as the first film, "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe", but is that reception justified or can the first film's greater success be put down to the simple fact that of all the books, TLTWTW is by far the most well-known in popular culture?

The special effects show a leap in improvement in this second film, due to recent advances in technology. You can still tell what's CGI and what isn't, there's just an indefinable quality that marks it out from what is real, but the match is closer than ever before and will undoubtedly continue to improve. However, the computer graphics and special effects are not used as much as in TLTWTW, where they were used to create the epic battle between the White Witch and Aslan and the Pevensies. Perhaps this is partly because "Prince Caspian" lacks an epic battle on that scale - Caspian and the Pevensies lead a much reduced Narnian force, and they're up against an army of humans, not magical creatures - but oddly in a way it does make "Caspian" feel less impressive in the special effects and computer graphics department. However, that's not to say that Caspian's special effects, where they are used, aren't of the highest quality.

Perhaps the most pressing question that concerned me was can the plot match or top the TLTWTW film? Granted this issue is more to do with the books (which I loved as a child). Like the first film, "Caspian" also features a journey, but in this case it is the journey of the Pevensies to join up with Prince Caspian. The journey is not nearly as lengthy or epic, and does not have the urgency of the White Witch on her sledge following right behind them all the way.
