I watch new releases every weekend. I have seen almost every major film released this year. Narnia far outdoes them all. I was carried away by the breathtaking views, the powerful emotional undertones, and simply the fantastical nature of it all. I never thought a movie could capture the book I loved so much as a child. This one did so, far surpassing all my expectations. In all my years of watching movies, I have never been more enraptured with a film. Such a beautifully filmed, well-acted movie ... there are not enough adjectives to express how much I enjoyed this movie. It was well worth going to the midnight showing! I won't write a summary, or my take on the story as a whole, as I'm afraid I would give away too many plot points. Suffice it to say, if you loved the book, you will love the movie. If you've never read the book, you will still be swept away by the grandeur of the story, as well as the gorgeous film-making.
