Movie review of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - 3/10
Directed by Michael Apted
Cast - Ben Barnes,Georgie Henley,Skandar Keynes,Will Poulter
Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
I have always enjoyed watching fantasy movies and thinking the first Narnia movie was fantasy,I went to watch it.I did not realize much later that the entire Narnia series is actually Christian propaganda.Pretty much for disillusioned kids (and most adults).but still with an open mind,I watched the second and finally the third.There will probably be a fourth soon,but this time I'm gonna give it a pass.
Acting for this movie is utter rubbish especially Georgie Henley who plays Lucy.Probably one of the upcoming WORST British actresses ever.I sincerely hope for the sake of the British Film Industry,that she never acts again..not even in porn.The "anger so called Darkside" look she gives about 5000 times in the movie was definitely enough for me.And then there was Will Poulter who plays a character called Eustance Scrubb.Now halfway through the movie,I did not know what the fucker's name was right until the credits came up because everyone in the movie kept shouting,"USELESS! USELESS!".and he looks more like a rat than Reepicheep the Rat who used to be voiced over by Edie Izzard but now Simon Pegg.
Special effects for the movie was pretty ok.And so was the editing.I did like some of the scene shots and the colouring for certain scenes though.But that's about it for this movie sadly.
And the whole end scene of Narnia, when Aslan comes(read the quotes)...sigh...
and the Christians wonder why everyone finds them annoying.
Feed them to the fucking lions!!! Hahahaha.
Other than that,I would only recommend you to watch this movie,if you are a fan of the Narnia series..or a christian.
Lucy Pevensie: Aslan, will we ever meet with you in our world?
Aslan: You shall.
Lucy Pevensie: How?
Aslan: Because there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.
