Movies: Critics Consensus: Narnia Looks Great, but Lacks Magic.
Thus far, the Chronicles of Narniamovies have generated respectful enthusiasm from audiences and critics – in contrast to the rabid culthood surrounding the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter movies. And critics say that’s not likely to change with the franchise’s latest outing, (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which they say is visually striking but lacks both excitement and a sense of wonder. Once again, the Pevensie children are back in Narnia, and this time they must journey across the sea and collect seven swords in order to save Narnia from certain destruction. The pundits sayDawn Treader isn’t bad, and some of the creature designs are remarkable, but it’s short on urgency, wide-eyed marvel, and a sense of fun. Rotten Tomatoes.
