They join King Caspian (Ben Barnes, Dorian Gray) and a noble mouse named Reepicheep in a quest to rescue noble lords who had been lost fighting evil on another island. Aboard the magnificent ship The Dawn Treader, the courageous voyagers travel to mysterious islands, confront mystical creatures, and reunite with the Great Lion Aslan on a mission that tests their characters to determine the fate of Narnia itself!

This and the other Narnia movies in this series are good, but at the same time disappointing examples of the violence the film makers seem to think is necessary to put in movies when there is no need for it.
I got the chance to see this in theaters about a week after it came out with some of my best friends, and my family. From the moment the opening titles came across the screen, the magic was back from Narnia and I was captivated.
The acting, choreography, and costumes are better than the last film, in my opinion. The action was better handled, there was humor, sorrow, and poignant moments.
Personally, one of the reasons I loved this one so much is because while watching it, it felt like Narnia. It felt like I was living the magic in the book. It takes a lot for a movie to do that to me, and it had the adventure, whimsy, and beauty that made me love the series in the first place.
But really, what made the whole thing for me was the inclusion of my favorite line, "In your world, I have another name." Kudos to the writers and directors for leaving that in. In the ending of the movie I was a complete waterworks, and I was trying to stop crying in time to leave, but then the original illustrations came out on the screen, and I lost it again.
I bought this as soon as it came out on DVD, it arrived quickly, and every time I watch it, I fall in love with Narnia all over again. Anyone who is a true Narnia fan will be able to look past the changes and love this film simply for how they captured Narnia....as the escape from the "reality" of this world, and a glimpse at what is in store for those who follow Jesus.
THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER has always been my favorite of the Narnia books and this movie didn't dissappoint me (at least not much)! It is such a fun story, but more than that, the underlying themes hit so close to home that I couldn't help but love it. It is amazing that the primary lessons of this book still came through, even in the hands of a movie company whose bottom line is profit.
The visual effects were beautiful, and even though it is a bit scary we took our stout hearted grandchildren (ages 4 and 6) to see it. We had already read them the book series, and they sort of knew going in what to expect, but to have it displayed in living color right before their very eyes was a lot for them to handle. There was some eye hiding, but with guidance, they coped very well and it didn't give them nightmares. I do advise any adults who are thinking about taking kids to see this movie to watch it alone first and determine if it suitable for your particular young ones. There are some scenes that could be extremely scary for a small child and ours did plenty of eye hiding at intense parts. They knew they were free to ask to leave, and they chose to stay the distance. There was no crying, and once we talked about it they wanted to see this movie again and handled it fine the second time around.
My only regret was that the feature film time slot required that some great parts of the story had to be pared from the finished product. I really missed the sub-plot about how Prince Caspian finds a wife. I was disappointed in the whole Susan/Caspian romance that was inserted into the last movie and maybe that is why the real Caspian romance with the daughter of a star was dumbed down in this flick. Movie makers are notorious for taking liberties with much beloved stories, and this is no exception.
