I did not really like the first Narnia movie, I felt it was big, grand, and boring.  They spent all this money and then delivered a flat boring dud.  So it was with great reluctance that I went last night to see Prince Caspian, the second in the Narnia movies delivered by Disney.  The previews look as dead as the first movie, I just am not excited about the series, and to hear that the same 4 boring stars were coming back I just was not looking forward to this at all.

I can say that Prince Caspian is a better movie that the first.  However not that much better.  It has a better story, plays a little  more interesting and the battles were in my opinion a lot better.  It was still led by the horrible King Peter, played by William Moseley and followed by his brothers and sisters, who don't need to have their names mentioned in this review.  They added another horrible teen or almost teen, Ben Barnes who played Prince Caspian.  He was as wooden as the other kids and did not help the movie. 

Luckily the addition of two dwarves and some charismatic characters from Narnia, helped keep the movie going and making it so I cared about someone in the movie.  Including talking CG badgers and mice.  Then there was Aslan the Lion who pulled his Jesus thing again.  I really don't have a problem with it, as far as the actual story of his appearance, he however seems to change the whole focus of the movie from the characters we have been seeing for 90 percent of the movie to him.  It really changed the pace and who the real heroes of the movie are, which I just found a little weird.  The movie is ok, and if you liked the first I think you will enjoy the second as well, there is nothing you must see if you didn't like the first however.
