After the saga of Harry Potter or the Lord of The Rings, we found a good deal in the fantastic films of this genre. Narnia is no exception to the rule, and we propose, on this first volume, 2h20 adventure and action, interspersed with scenes a little more soft but held all the same.

Straight out of the productions of Walt Disney, The chronicles of Narnia : chapter 1 – the lion, the witch and the wardrobe – we couldn’t do less long – is part of a lineage that has a recipe for success. Children and teens love this kind of movie, we know it. The producers and writers have realized this and have passed everything naturally the second speed in the quest of fantasy adventure.

A group of friends or a family, of the wicked, overcome by their leader, or their queen, a quest to overcome and to discover. 3 ingredients unstoppable to make a movie a good genre film. Andrew Adamson (the saga of Shrek) has risen to the challenge by putting in scene 4 children, 4 brothers and sisters struggling between good and evil.

The special effects are well done except for a few small bugs from time to time : For example, the scene where Aslan’s short and carries 2 children on his back, and that they are fairly static. A multitude of monsters, on the side of evil, are reproduced. He had enough imagination to design and put it on display.

There are also heads known to the fantastic : fauns, centaurs, unicorns, and other minotaurs. Everything is done to transport the viewer and insert it naturally into the story. 23 different species are the feature-length film, much more so than in its counterpart, the Lord of The Rings.

Level scenario just, all goes well also. Based on the saga’s literary “The Wardrobe”, one of the seven volumes of the “Chronicles of Narnia” of “the other J. R. R. Tolkien“, C. s. Lewis, a specialist in myths and legends.

Everything flows well, without hooks. Everything is done to do not that there is precisely. A blink of an eye with the presence of the Father Christmas has the same rigour.

The play of actors is good. The 4 children are proving to be all good. Only Anna Popplewell – Susan in the film – has played in other films previously, the rest being totally novice in the matter.

Jadis, the White Queen, played by Tilda Swinton (The Beach, Constantine, Broken Flowers, Michael Clayton), is a queen very credible, accustomed to film-making and fantastic – it was the angel Gabriel in Constantine – and possessing arguably the best game of the film.

2h20 after, one comes out of this movie refreshed, without being either “the” fantastic ” film of the year, The chronicles of Narnia : chapter 1 – the lion, the witch and the wardrobe is still one of the best in its genre recently.
