Chronicles of Narnia 3: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Today’s extremely anticipated release is the third in the Narnia trilogy, and on paper perhaps the strongest of the series.
Voyage of the Dawn Treader comes hampered by low expectation based on the first two films. The younger two Pevensie children and their brat of a cousin, Eustace, as well as the title character of the previous outing, Prince Caspian (now a King), set sail to discover the end of the world and all the weird and wonderful things in between.
Due to snow, Exposed could not make it to the screening of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Instead, we suited and booted up some intrepid movie-goers, armed simply with their mobile phones and asked them to text in what they thought of the film. Here’s what they said:
The magic of Narnia is still going strong! Brilliant character award goes to Eustace who is completely annoying! The film dragged on a bit and was sickly sweet a bit too much but that’s allowed during Christmas. Children will love it! There was no ‘WOW’ factor in the film but nice enough to pass the time.

It was pretty average, and never really had any moments that made me sit on the edge of my seat with anticipation as other adventure stories have. Acting was ok but there were no real outstanding performances from the cast. Why it was in 3D?! I don't know!

I really enjoyed the film although I feel it being in 3D didn't really add anything to it and not worth paying the extra price. However it did make the water from the painting scene pretty awesome. It's a good film for all the family this Christmas but it lacks some Narnian magic.

Enjoyable. Understandable changes to the book version didn't spoil it at all. 3D added nothing sadly.

I thought it was really good and didn't differ too much from the book. Eustace was just how I had imagined him. I thought some of the emotional scenes were a bit poorly acted. The graphics were good though.
