Director (and co-screenwriter) Andrew Adamson, a veteran of the Shrek franchise, knows his way around a fantasy-based adventure story, and he wisely keeps the story moving when it could easily become bogged down and tiresome. Narnia is, of course, a Christian allegory and the symbology is definitely there (as it should be, otherwise it wouldn't be the story Lewis wrote), but audiences aren’t knocked over the head with it, and in the hands of another director it could easily have become pedantic. The focus is squarely on the children and their adventures. The four young actors are respectable in their roles, especially considering the size of the project put on their shoulders, but it's the young Georgie Henley as the curious Lucy who stands out. This isn't a film that wildly succeeds, and in the long run it won't have the same impact as the Harry Potter franchise, but it is well done, and kids will get swept up in the adventure. Note: Narnia does contain battle scenes that some parents may consider too violent for younger children. --Dan Vancini

When a movie makes you want to read the book...you know its gotta be good.
Overall, this movie was well acted, the story was very cohesive, the talking animals were great, and the special effects were great.
I am a huge fan of the Chronicles of Narnia series - they are simply my favorite fiction books that I've ever read.
Some of the animation was not up to par even by standards set when this movie came out. Aside from that, this movie is a sure fire hit with kids. Read morePublished 6 hours ago by Leo B.

I read these books as a kid, and appreciate how well they were brought to the screen. Adventurous and covers the basic concept of good versus bad, much like other kids movies like... Read morePublished 2 days ago by Denver Mom

|Lewis' Narnia is an allegory of his highly unwelcome love for Virginia...||
I think that must be who they, whoever this is, meant in suggesting this missed romance (COUGH!) but where, oh WHERE, is there any idea or indication or reference that CS Lewis had a thing for Virginia Woolf? And if that's true, how is this an allegory for said unrequited love?

|Extended Editions: Narnia||
Yes the only reason I'm going to get The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe on Blu-ray is if it's an extended edition..

Well then d'oh! to you! You could have bought a used 2-disc edition for a tiny fraction of the price (around $6-8), if cost was an issue. You obviously don't know how to shop, and that isn't Amazon's fault. Whiner.
