Top Critic Reviews
While this first entry into the world of Narnia by Andrew Adamson is far more accomplished as a fantasy-film than any of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings or many of Harry Potters, it still is a bit uneven. The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe begins brilliantly and the best part of it is the first magical hour. After that when the story gets into more serious waters and turns into war between good guys and bad guys, it loses some of it's magic. Still there is no denying of the visual power of Adamson's images. He is a director who certainly knows how to make epic fly. The climatic battle is one of the greatest battle sequences created in a recent years. Young cast succeeds well enough to keep us interested in their fate and Tilda Swinton is perfect as a ice-cold queen who wants to rule whole kingdom of Narnia. All in all this suitable entertainment for anyone over 7-years and it is well made also. It might not be anything special but it delivers to entertain and is certainly a must see for fantasy fans.

Good storytelling movie. Saw it when I was 16 and still thought it was cool, it must be awesome for a little kid.
