The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

On Christmas Eve I went to the cinema to watch the "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe". I was quite surprised by how enjoyable an experience it was. The film adaptation of C.S. Lewis' timeless adventure, was more accurate than I thought it would be and a very good production.

For those of you who aren't aware of the plot, the story follows the magical adventures of four children sent to live in a country house during the Blitz. Whilst playing a game of hide-and-seek in the country home of an elderly professor they accidentally find a magical wardrobe through which they are transported to the land of Narnia. Whilst in Narnia they find themselves cought up in a battle between the forces of evil led by the White Witch and the forces of good which rally around Aslan.
The Chronicles of Narnia
Plot: 16/20
Acting: 16/20
Production: 18/20
Entertainment: 32/40
Total: 82/100

The production is very well executed and the story as ever is quite engaging. It is a great movie for children of all ages but also there is enough humour to amuse accompanying adults as well. Look aout for similarities between this film and The Lord of the Rings, Lewis & Tolkien were friends and there are similarities between certain scenes and plot devices.
