The Chronicles of Narnia : The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (3D)

Medium : English
Starring : Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Will Poulter, Ben Barnes
Director : Michael Apted

The 'Harry Potter' fever is still there in the theaters, now another sequel targeting children and youths has been arrived. The third movie of the 'Narnia' series came with a lengthy title, 'The Chronicles of Narnia : The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'. As I told you earlier, about the permanent 3D screen at the capital city, hence the 3D version has got released here. Like the previous, the theme of this movie is adapted from the fantasy novel. Michael Apted, the director of James Bond movie 'The World Is Not Enough', had directed the movie. It is distributed by 20th Century Fox.

The story takes its route when the three friends watching the animated painting of the sea waves hanging on the wall. They were forced to reach the deep sea through that picture. The ship carrying the King and the soldiers saves them and they continued their journey to different locations. On the way they had faced many hurdles. Before reaching the destination, they reached a volcanic mountain, then to a river that turns anything touches it to gold, then a cave where powerful swords were shown, later a dragon has joined them, the green color mist has surrounded them for few minutes and nearing the destination they have to face a monster who has attacked the team severely.

The visual effects sequences in the movie are done well. The dragon's model has been seen in some movies before. The monster and its associated episodes are created in a dark environment. The only good thing happened there is that the usage of the miniature models and the computer graphics effects won't be clearly visible. The movie gets its pace in the second half only. In whole, you don't get a good visual treat as it was in the case of the first movie, 'Narnia'. The 3D effect used in the movie is as usual good, but most of the frames viewed through the 3D glasses won't gives us the necessary brightness, hence I was forced to remove the glasses many times.

A regular follower of the 'Narnia' series can watch the latest version, 'The Chronicles of Narnia : The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (3D)' also.

Rating : 6 / 10
