More Info:
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    A generation-spanning journey that feels both comfortingly familiar and excitingly original.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A movie of intelligence and power, of beauty, universality and largeness of spirit.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    The picture goes exactly where the prose does, enticing all of us, kids and adults and atheists and believers alike, down below the brittle surface of our cold logic and into a richer world of imaginative wonder.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Plunges into an imaginative landscape as large as all creation - and never slackens its barreling pace or shrinks its panoramic scope.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Spiritual redemption is a big theme of Narnia, but on a purely entertainment level, the movie also goes a long way in redeeming the current sad state of children's fantasy filmmaking.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    What is lightly sketched in the novel, where much is left to the imagination, blossoms into full-blown, richly detailed life in the movie.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    There's nothing too clean or too overbright about it. It's magic, but not the loud, shiny kind: It has the texture of worn velvet, or a painstakingly hand-knit sweater stored away for years in tissue paper. Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    By staying focused on the children -- frightened evacuees from the London Blitz whose parallel war in Narnia both taps into and finally quiets their unspoken terrors -- Adamson keeps faith with the humanity of Lewsis' tale.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Robust, engrossing, and surprisingly restrained in saving most of its effects for the grand finale, the first Chronicles of Narnia installment eschews Harry Potter's satanic subtext and "The Lord of the Rings'" Wagnerian cosmology. It may be as close to adult-friendly kid fare as Hollywood will ever get.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    If you're a fan of C.S. Lewis' Narnia books, all you need to know is this: Disney has done right by The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. It's impossible to imagine it done much better, in fact.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    What's best about it is that it seems real by the logic of childhood - it looks as things SHOULD look, if kids had it their way.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    An entertaining, emotional, and surprisingly intimate movie--an epic saga of fauns and talking (Cockney) beavers and evil sorceresses and triumphal resurrections and massive, sweeping battles that nonetheless feels … small.

    Slate Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    Well told, handsome, stirring and loads of fun.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Generations of readers have found The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe to be a gripping adventure that reaches well beyond its religious underpinnings, and this robust version respects both aspects and finds the same winning balance of excitement and meaning.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The next two hours might not have quite delivered on that initial promise of wonder - we grown-ups, being heavy, are not so easily swept away by visual tricks - except when I looked away from the screen at the faces of breathless and wide-eyed children, my own among them, for whom the whole experience was new, strange, disturbing and delightful.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Narnia, brightly lit and kid-friendly, has an appealingly old-fashioned feel to it. Adamson, codirector of "Shrek," wisely doesn't try to hip-ify the tale, leaving its curious blend of medieval pageantry, Christian fable and children's bedtime story intact.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An array of supporting craftspeople pull the viewer into a credible alternative world, even if the film itself is more prosaic than inspiring.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    This is a film situated precisely on the dividing line between traditional family entertainment and the newer action-oriented family films. It is charming and scary in about equal measure, and confident for the first two acts that it can be wonderful without having to hammer us into enjoying it, or else. Then it starts hammering.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The extensive CGI work is well used and the children are exceptionally well cast, especially the girls.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    An engaging and exciting family film that at times feels a bit like "The Lord of the Rings Jr."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A gracefully subtle metaphor about life's Deep Magic has become a war film; what was a one-chapter battle toward the end of the book is now a ripsnorting Armageddon that looks like something Hieronymus Bosch might dream up after a heavy meal.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    On balance, more of the movie works than doesn't, but this isn't 140 minutes of unqualified successes.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A loving interpretation of C.S. Lewis's beloved parable for children, and it's almost perfect in every detail. Yet there's the one difficulty: It's almost perfect in every detail, fully realized in too few.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The movie, for all its half-baked visual marvels, remains remarkably faithful to Lewis' story, and the innocence of his passion begins to shine through. It's there, most spectacularly, in Aslan, the lion-king messiah.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Working for the first time in live action, under the constraints of a classic novel, he (Andrew Adamson) proves himself to be a capable visual storyteller but no Peter Jackson.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The Christian themes of forgiveness and sacrifice are tastefully conveyed, and the opening sequence of Nazi bombs falling on London, an event only alluded to in the book, helps dramatize Lewis's fascination with power.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    This PG-rated movie feels safe and constricted in a way the story never does on the page. It leaves out the deep magic of a good movie, or a good sermon: the feeling that something vital is at stake.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    There's little warmth or depth to the characters who, for the most part, trudge through the film with little wonder at the magical journey they're making.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Overlong, poorly paced and woodenly acted film.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The menagerie of mythological beasties in Narnia don't seem quite genuinely, three-dimensionally real.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Younger children getting in on the ground floor of fantasy will enjoy the film.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    It's a more dynamic adventure than Potter IV but lacks the majesty and richness of LOTR. Still, it's an enjoyable adaptation and good enough for us to welcome this new franchise.

    Empire Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Though it's handsomely made and peppered with seamlessly achieved visual glories, Narnia is ineptly acted, crudely staged and burdened with a score that only a masochist could love.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The problem with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is this: The closer the many-hands screenplay gets to the Christ-like sufferings and resurrection of Lord Aslan, the lion (voiced by Liam Neeson), the more conflicted the filmmakers' efforts become.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    The problem with any allegorical plan, Christian or otherwise, is not its ideological content but the blockish threat that it poses to the flow of a story.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Narnia is nearly saved by those immensely likable and altogether stiff-upper-lippy Pevensie kids.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Disney is trying to lure the disparate audiences of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (kids) and "The Passion of the Christ" (Evangelicals). But on either level, Narnia fails. There's no fire, no passion and not much fun.

    Time Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The movie is a leaden, slow-moving beast.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    That's not to say that this first visit to a live-action Narnia on screen isn't enjoyable, or promising for the future of what will surely be a successful franchise. But there's not a lot of humor along the way, and the epic struggle between good and evil plays out in battles more impressive than thrilling.
