Prepare to enter another world when Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media present C.S. Lewis' timeless and beloved epic adventure. With the stunningly realistic special effects, you'll experience the exploits of Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter, four siblings who find the world of Narnia through a magical wardrobe while playing a game of "hide-and-seek" at the country estate of a mysterious professor. Once there, the children discover a charming, once peaceful land inhabited by talking beasts, dwarfs, fauns, centaurs and giants that has been turned into a world of eternal winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis. Aided by the wise and magnificent lion Aslan, the children lead Narnia into a spectacular, climactic battle to be free of the Witch's glacial powers forever!
Good Childrens Action Film
- Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe review by Chris
I enjoyed this film.
The special effects are worth mentioning though because most of the time they are very good with believable talking Beavers / Lions BUT in places the children were standing in front of very obvious 'blue screen' backgrounds, which detracted from an otherwise very slick production.

- Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe review by Mark from Somerset
The story starts well and quickly introduces the main characters. The Narnia world is well done and has a believable fairytale feel to it. The computer graphics are good on the whole but there are sections that are very obvious and not as seemless as the norm today. The wicked witch is acted nicely and the children also play their roles well. As the film progresses it feels like we're being rushed into the final big confrontation. Overall a pleasant and easy watch and generally suited to all but very young children.
