C.S Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a classic in my own books. I recall reading the book and how I felt when I Aslan was helping rip off Eustace scales by pawing on the ground, I felt like I too needed to rip off the scales of sin in my life, which has changed me into a beast that I no longer recognize.

The transformation from the beast back to the boy was done by the aid of Aslan, and that goes to show that we too can be transformed if we let God do it for us. The acting is another thing, I guess seeing Edmond and Lucy grown and Peter and Susan no longer being part of the Narnia story made it easier to concentrate on the ability of both (Edmond (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy (Georgie Henley)) to be able to carry the movie as the new leads, one ability thanks to Prince/King Caspian (Ben Barnes) dashing performance all three were able to handle.

The story is true to the book, and they did their very best to make sure that the lessons from the book were not hidden or over looked. As a standalone movie, that is watching this movie without reading the book first, this movie holds its own ground. The acting was good, the cinematography was excellent and the visual effects were captivating enough to keep you glued.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader takes place three years after the events of Prince Caspian, Lucy and Edmund Pevensie are now staying with their cousin Eustace Scrubb who is by far the most annoying and irritating brat they have come to know.
Edmund keeps tries to get listed to go to war, but he is too young to enlist in His Majesty's Armed Forces, and Lucy wants so much to be as beautiful as her sister Susan.

At their cousin's home a painting of a ship on the ocean transports Lucy, Edmund and Eustace into an ocean in Narnia. There in the ocean they are rescued by the ship in the painting and they met Prince Caspain who is now King on board the Dawn Treader, as he is on a voyage in search of the seven Lords of Narnia whom his uncle Miraz banished.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a great movie one that I bet you will love, the Christian themes are not hidden and the movie idea is well thought through, kudos to the producers for such a dashing movie. In comparison with the other Narnia movies, well this movie will be in the third place behind the first two.
The sad thing is that we may have to wait more years before we get to see another “The Chronicles of Narnia” story, because the makers Walden Media have lost the rights to the C.S Lewis books.
