Lucy and Edmund are spending a dreary holiday with their cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb, who is a rather dour and mean spirited little boy.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
The Narnia films have gone downhill since the original (The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe) was released, that is in plotline, commercially these films still do very well. The second film, Prince Caspian, was still a decent film, but nothing compared to The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and unfortunately, The Dawn Treader is even worse. This film was produced by 20th Century Fox, instead of Disney, and perhaps the fall in revenue of the series is to blame for that. Now writing this post would be considered blasphemy in my school as we worship Anna Popplewell, who plays Susan, an ex-pupil, but since neither she nor William Moseley feature much at all in this movie, I think I'll get away with it.

This film focuses on the two younger Pevensie children, Lucy and Edmund, as well as a new additon: their cousin Eustace (played by Will Poulter). Will Poulter. He's probably the best thing about this movie as he is undoubtedly one of the best child actors today. He plays the role of annoying cousin Eustace so well, that I genuinely wanted to kick him for the majority of the movie (it's a good thing, don't worry). Something really puzzling about this movie is Prince Caspian. Now if i remember correctly, in the second film, he had a distinctly (sexy!) Spanish accent. WHERE DID IT GO? It is a mystery.

Unfortunately, I haven't read the book so I can't tell you whether or not the story sticks to the plotline or not, but if the books anything like the movie, I'm not going to bother. Don't get me wrong, there were some very good aspects to this movie, that were entertaining and emotional; however, there are others which leave much to be desired. Personally, I wouldn't watch it again, but since it was so commericially popular, and did receive some very good reviews, I guess this one's up to you.

Format: Blu-ray
Some discs I love so much that I only ever watch them at Christmas. The Golden Compass [Blu-ray], Harry Potter Wizard's Collection Box Set (Blu-ray + DVD + UV Copy)[Region Free], The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Extended Edition [Blu-ray] [2001] - and the Chronicles of Narnia.

In this third Chronicle, Lucy (Georgie Henley), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), Caspian (Ben Barnes) and the chivalrous Reepicheep (now voiced by Simon Pegg) return from the second film of the series, and are joined by a boy who is called Eustace Clarence Scrubb and almost deserves it (superbly portrayed by Will Poulter). Under the direction of Michael Apted, moving spirit of the famous 7 Up documentaries, they sail ever eastward on the magnificent Dawn Treader into adventures variously perilous, comical or awe-inspiring.

This Blu-ray trims the film's frame to 16X9, but otherwise serves its ravishing cinematography and exquisite CGI to glorious effect. David Arnold's music sings out as beautifully as one would hope.

Just as its predecessors did, the screenplay often departs from the narrative of the C. S. Lewis book upon which the film is based. Some characters and events are omitted, others are introduced and incidents are freely rearranged. But the heroes of the film remain recognizably the people that Lewis invented, they experience the same moral crises, they make the same choices and their journey comes to the same sublime conclusion.
