The third film based on C.S. Lewis's fantasy books, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader opens three years after the Pevensie children return from battling to restore peace to Narnia in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy (Georgie Henley) are still staying with Eustace (Will Poulter), while Peter and Susan have gotten older and moved on to school and America, respectively. Still as surly and unbelieving as ever, Eustace continues to mock his cousins for their Narnian fantasies. But when water begins spilling into their room from a painting hanging on the wall, all three young people are swept onto the decks of the sailing ship known as the Dawn Treader, which is afloat in the waters of Narnia.

This time, there are no wars to be fought in Narnia. But it soon becomes evident that the trio is destined to help King Caspian (Ben Barnes) solve the mystery of the disappearance of the seven lords of Telmar, and prevent the ongoing sacrifices of large groups of Narnian people to the evil green mist. So begins a quest through uncharted waters that will require each of the children to resist temptations like beauty and power, and to conquer the darkness within themselves in order to defeat the threat to Narnia's people. The battle promises to yield unexpected heroes, and through their journey, Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and even King Caspian and Reepicheep (voiced by Simon Pegg) each grow and mature. Eventually, Aslan (voiced by Liam Neeson) will ask each adventurer to make an important choice that will forever influence his or her future. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader features plenty of high adventure, sword-fighting action, and personal peril, and while it fails to fully capitalise on the characters' motivations or to earn viewers' full emotional investment, it is still a solid addition to the Narnia film series. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

The voyage is even more fantastic in 3D. Lucy, Edmund and cousin Eustace join King Caspian and a noble mouse named Reepicheep aboard a magnificent ship bound for mysterious islands. Soon, they confront mystical creatures and reunite with the mighty Aslan on a mission that will determine the fate of Narnia.

This 3D release is playable as a standard 2D Blu-ray and also includes the DVD and a digital copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars From Here to Eternity... 31 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On paper, C.S Lewis' third Narnia novel is easily the most film friendly - with fire-breathing dragons, monstrous sea serpents, battles with slave traders, and magical islands aplenty, the prospect of seeing this story brought to the big screen is a mouth-watering one indeed. For the most part then the movie treatment of `Dawn Treader' is a resounding success: Simon Pegg's swashbuckling mouse Reepicheep is impressively realized and consistently good value, while newcomer Will Poulter is perfectly cast as odious schoolboy Eustace Scrubb. However, as with the two previous Narnia movies, the scriptwriters seem to have omitted small but key facets of the story and shoehorned in an excess of mawkishness - Eustace's extended sobbing at the loss of his `friend' Reep could surely have been ditched in favour of extending the screen time of the Dufflepuds - one of the best parts of the novel but woefully curtailed here.
Anyhow, these niggles aside, the film is tremendous fun and sumptuously shot - the titular ship looks fantastic, and the scene with the sea-serpent appropriately thrilling. The monster itself is pretty horrific, meaning that I would baulk at watching this with my six year old, but overall it's a family-friendly slice of fantasy that will undoubtedly bear repeated viewings for years to come.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why Change the Story? 14 Aug 2011
By SPJ
Format:DVD
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was the first Narnian book I read as a child and my favourite. It is such a wonderful story. That small, beautiful ship, going from island to island and adventure to adventure, to track down the fate of the seven lords out into the unknown towards Aslan's country. So what on earth was the Green Mist, the seven swords and the extra passengers all about? Why? It was all completely unnecessary. I've just gone back to re-read the book and the way CS Lewis tells the story is just fine. No embellishments are needed. For someone who doesn't know and love the original book, the changes won't matter that much - except that the Green Mist is never really explained. But knowing the story, they really irritated me!
I agree with another reviewer that it felt we were rushing from scene to scene, so a slightly longer, more leisurely paced film through the different adventures would have been a pleasure.
Will Poulter as Eustace did a difficult job well, changing from grumpy sulk to the promise of the hero-to-be in the Silver Chair.
I just hope that future films stay true to what CS Lewis wrote. He was a great story-teller and there is no need for any modern script-writer to "improve on" the original plots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film...3D is ok 29 July 2011
By richard
Format:Blu-ray
This 3D blu ray is currently only available through the brand-specific give-aways with certain tvs etc, however they can be sourced relatively easily. This review is of one of these give-aways, although I'm guessing any difference with the retail release will be minor.

The film itself is excellent. The canvas is broad and the effects are, in general, superb. There's a real sense of adventure and travel. The returning actors are excellent and the new addition, cousin Eustace, steals the show.

The 3D is variable. I understand why the director felt he had to opt for post-conversion to 3D but frankly shooting native 3D gives a sense of dimension and depth that no conversion I've seen yet has even comes close to. Compare a native 3D film like 'Ultimate Wave Tahiti' to this, and Dawn Treader suffers badly.

There's no doubt that the addition of 3D to Dawn Treader really adds to the experience and is more immersive, but the 3D could just have been SO MUCH BETTER if shot native.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid re-creation of C.S. Lewis's book 12 Dec 2010
By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This review of the film was originally based on having taken my family to watch it in the cinema in 3D. We enjoyed the film and bought the DVD when it came out: it was also great fun to watch at home.

I found the first two "Chronicles of Narnia" films excellent, but had not expected this third film to live up to the same standard. However, it exceeded my expectations: if anything I enjoyed it even more than the first two films, The Chronicles Of Narnia - The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe [DVD] [2005] and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2008].

No film pleases everyone, and I see from the other reviews that some people didn't enjoy this as much as my family did, so let me explain what I think was good about the film.

The original book, The Voyage of the "Dawn Treader" (Puffin Books), has one of the most memorable and amusing opening lines in children's fiction:

"There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it."

No film or TV version of this book will work without a good actor playing Eustace. He has to be someone we can love to hate in the early part of the film, come to sympathise with as the story continues, and whose expressions and actions positively radiate the shock, horror and incredulity of a boy who had been raised to scoff at fairy tales and legends, but who finds out the hard way that they are real when he is transported into one.
