About the Movie

Return to the hope and wonder of C.S. Lewis’ beloved world – via the fantastic Narnian ship, The Dawn Treader, in "The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader". Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with their cousin Eustace, are swallowed into a painting and transported back to Narnia and the magnificent ship The Dawn Treader. They join King Caspian and a warrior mouse named Reepicheep for a mission which holds the fate of Narnia itself. The courageous voyagers overcome their own greatest temptations, as they travel to mysterious islands; have fateful confrontations with magical creatures and sinister enemies; and reunite with their friend and protector, the "Great Lion" Aslan.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Dawn Treader, the name of the ship in the story, should here be rechristened Yawn Treader. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Dec 9, 2010

Rotten: Oh, there are sword fights aplenty (as bloodless as ever), but instead of a real story, we are left clinging to individual moments. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Dec 9, 2010

Fresh: A decent family adventure, perfectly suited to a cold Saturday morning -- and likely to be forgotten by Sunday. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Dec 9, 2010

Fresh: Apted brings back a sense of the old-fashioned fun of the low-tech 1960s myths-and-monsters matinees, when no roiling sea ever failed to harbor a giant serpent -- and men stood in the bows of ships facing peril with chins of iron. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Dec 10, 2010

the critics are tough on this one! I thought it was a great movie
better than Prince Caspian. Good plot....well made movie

great movie!

though not loyal to the book, it is a fantastic movie by itself!

Breathtaking and magical! :)

This was a beautifully done movie with spectacular acting performances. It's been great to see Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley grow with their parts, and they did an amazing job again in Dawn Treader, along with co-star Ben Barnes, who reprised his role as Caspian. Also, the newest addition to the cast, Will Poulter, was perfect for Eustace - he has spot-on comedic timing, and yet he could hit those more dramatic moments just as well.
It can be so hard to adapt a book for the screen, but the filmmakers pulled this off effortlessly. Yes, they've added stuff that wasn't in the book, but I think that made the movie more exciting and believable; and they never strayed from the magic and adventure of the story - they only enhanced it.
I'm surprised that the critics have been so rough on this movie, but hey, even the critics can be wrong sometimes. If you really want to know what this movie is like, you'll have to set sail with the Dawn Treader yourself. It's an experience you'll never forget! :)
