The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader 2010

Subtitles

Lucy and Edmund are spending a dreary holiday with their cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb, who is a rather dour and mean spirited little boy. They are unexpectedly drawn into Narnia when a painting of a ship on the wall of Lucy's room comes to life, and the three children fall into the ocean to be rescued by the Dawn Treader.

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.

In this 2010 high fantasy, set 3 years after the second movie, ‘Prince Caspian’, Lucy and Edmund Pevensie are staying with their irritating bookworm cousin Eustace are whisked away to Narnia and rescued by Caspian, who captains the Dawn Treader. Together they voyage to rescue the seven Lords of Narnia who fled from his uncle Miraz.
Chronologically this is the third Narnia story published, but fifth in the Narnia timeline, but that’s mostly irrelevant as it’s basically a stand alone, but it does help to have seen the others otherwise you may not get some of the character interplay, but it’s not essential.
Shedding the Nickelodian ham acting of ‘PC’ this is convincingly acted from the start. Beautiful scenery, dazzling visual effects and an atmospheric soundtrack, this doesn’t take itself as serious as it’s predecessor and is far more fun with some great comedy moments, while the annoying and irksome Eustace keeps you firmly grounded and provides most of the wry humour.
The first disc opens to play, set up [English, Swedish, Norwegian, commentary and subtitles as languages with Danish and English hard of hearing], scenes and extras [deleted scenes, commentary and 3 music videos]. The second disc is brimming with extras.
Children of all ages will be enthralled by this, even sceptical teens. This isn’t as ‘dark’ an atmosphere as ‘PC’ but does posses an eerie supernatural edge with violent storms, sea monsters, dragons and many other weird and comical creatures to keep you entertained. A brilliant and wonderful fantasy for all the family [PG of course!] –even if the younger ones might hide behind the sofa!

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.
