I like this version of the movie of Prince Caspian a lot more than the other Prince Caspian movie, because the characters are a lot more real and a lot of good scenes were added to, to make the movie more involved. In this version there is a relationship between Susan and Caspian, and there are a lot of impressive battle scenes. I think Miraz is very well done in this movie as well as his general. Caspian is a lot older in this one and I like the actors playing the four siblings a lot.

I think this is the best Narnia movie! I liked how it had more action than the first one.

Note: I don't mind romance, but the thing between Caspian and Susan was just so… contrived and out of the blue. I wish they had a sort of build up before just making them kiss at the end. A pity, really.

This was a great movie, though all the horses died :(

In the book, Caspian is largely a pawn, being fought over by the characters of the first book and the evil uncle/king of this book. Movie Caspian is distinct, being significantly older, cool, and with a bit of an attitude. He does more than his book counterpart, and that alone makes this movie better than the book. There are some significant action pieces, some witty humor, and the messages of growing up and passing on the torch remain, perhaps even more distinct. They even added some stuff that wasn't in the book, and honestly, I think the movie made the right call. It surprises me to say this, but this movie might be my single favorite Chronicles of Narnia media piece.

A highly enjoyable continuation of the Narnia movie remakes, with another gorgeous soundtrack. I loved the beautiful and colorful way that the novel was brought to life, and I even enjoyed most of the elements that were added to the story. I also loved the occasional little nuggets of humor folded into the dialogue, which gave me a smile without taking from the emotional depth of the story.

Rated 8/10. Quite well done. Good followup to previous movies.

I love anything involving Narnia, so, I'm opinionated about this. First of all, this movie's storyline strays fairly far in points from the book's plot, however, this makes it interesting. A lot of the book is condensed to allow more time for the battle at the end. The Good: The actors are amazing; it's really fun to see them older. The costumes, props, scenery, etc is spot-on and really lends a lot to the atmosphere. At the end, the duel and the battle are both well done and suspenseful. Finally, there's Reepicheep. :)
The Not Quite So Good: Caspian's accent. It was distracting, plus it was different than any other Telmarine accent. The love story. Although it does yield one of the best lines, it is NOT in the book, and feels forced. The other problem I have is the rivalry between Caspian and Peter. I like them in the book, and they are portrayed as prideful and annoying here. :( Still, the movie was quite fun.

I didn't really enjoy this one as much as the first or third movies. Prince Caspian is full of action, and if you are into an action-packed movie, you will enjoy this. But I found the characters were drained and dumbed down from the book. I did not find them mature or grown up or.....anything. The romance was too forced for me. But at least they all did become friends toward the end and put aside their differences....but I definitely stick to the BBC version when it comes to this.

Cool, nice action and adventure scenes but I prefer the first film.

I watched the Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe first, and was hooked on the series. I watched Prince Caspian several times before I decided to get the book, wondering how similar it was to the movie. I have to admit, I liked the movie better than the book. The book is interesting, and is an enjoyable read, but the movie develops and portrays the characters more than the book. All in all, I think Prince Caspian is a well-made film, although some of the scenes may be a little intense for young kids. It is one of my favorite movies now. :)

Susan: Pretend that you are talking to me.
Edmund: We ARE talking to you.

Edmund to Peter after destroying the White Witch: "I know. You had it sorted." <3

Peter: That's the problem with girls...they can't carry a map in their heads. Lucy: That's because OUR heads have something in them.

Telmarine soldier: You're...a mouse. Reepicheep: You people have no imagination. Hiyah!

Lucy (holding up dress) "I was so big then." Susan "You were older back then." Edmond "As opposed to hundreds of years later... when you're younger."
