Narnia : Prince Caspian

Next movie that I watched was Narnia : Prince Caspian. It was a great fantasy movie I'd say. I love this kind of movie a lot. Reached at the cinema around 9:00pm and cit chat around there until the show time at 9:30pm. Bought combo set of regular caramel popcorn with 2 big soft drinks -- I got small Narnia little glass though. I did ask her [the cashier] to change to light sweet popcorn as I don't fancy too-sweet-caramel popcorn anymore. She simply replied "The caramel is more expensive sir, and we don't allow customer to get a cheaper popcorn since you pay for the more expensive one". I was speechless. Fine then.



Here the story goes...

While standing on a train station in 1941, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are magically whisked away to a beach near an old and ruined castle. They soon discover that the ruins are Cair Paravel, where they once ruled as the Kings and Queens of Narnia. Although only a year has passed in their world, 1300 years have passed in Narnia. (what a lovely starting)

Trumpkin, a dwarf whom they rescue from drowning, tells them the sad tale: During their absence, a race of men called Telmarines have invaded Narnia, driving the Talking Beasts into the wilderness and pushing even their memory underground. Narnia now is ruled by King Miraz, a cruel despot. (the black bear was scary when Lucy tried to say hi to him)

Miraz also is an usurper, having killed his brother, King Caspian IX, to take the throne. His nephew, Prince Caspian, is initially ignorant of his uncle’s evil deeds, but learns the truth, and also about Old (pre-Telmarine) Narnia from Doctor Cornelius, his tutor. Miraz was childless and was thus willing for Caspian to be his heir, but when the Queen has a son, Cornelius warns Caspian that his life is now in danger. Caspian escapes and finds himself among the Talking Beasts. They accept him as the True King of Narnia and promise to help him regain this throne.

An army is assembled—although it is far short of the mighty armies that Narnia has been able to assemble in the past. Prince Caspian fights as best he can, but has been slowly losing to Miraz. Desperate for help, Caspian has blown Queen Susan’s horn—and it was that act that called the four children to Narnia. (the chasing part with horses was like the 1st episode of LOTR -- it was a heart-thumping)

Having heard the story, the true Kings and Queens of Narnia make their way to the battlefield. But the journey is long and hard, and the children lose their way. It is then that Lucy sees Aslan. Unfortunately, the others do not believe her. Their faith is tested, but in the end, Aslan leads them to Caspian. (it was sad to see so many Narnians died in the battle at Miraz's castle -- stupid Peter and Prince Caspian! It was absolutely because of YOU!)

The forces of evil are defeated in a battle by Aslan’s table. Miraz is killed by one of his own men. (After he killed, he announced to all army Miraz was killed by Narnian and declared war! He is a piece of shit though and the war begun! Love to see Aslan used his magic to make the river into Neptune illustration and also how he made the trees fought for Narnia as well)

In the end, Aslan returns the Telmarines back to their world, and the children back to the train station. (This is the sad part)

I won't tell you the whole story. Enough with some synopsis. Lol. There were so many characters to tell about. I'd vote 5 out of 5 stars!
