Summary: 4 children displaced by the war in England find a magical land where animals talk and mythical creatures are real, which is enslaved in an eternal winter by an evil witch.
Comments: I enjoyed this movie quite a bit- a lot more than I thought I would. This is mainly due to the fact that I bought the talking animals, and was carried away on the adventure. If you couldn't do this, it would be a terible movie and I imagine a lot ov people will hate it for that reason. The effects are decent but spotty- some stuff looks very good, but some are a littel shoddy. If you have an imagination it won't matter that much (none ov it is bad, just some a lot better than others).
The acting is very good, paticularly the 2 younger kids (the 2 older ones- a fairly uncharismatic boy who's supposed to be a great leader and a weepy eyed girl who doesn't have much to do- are the weakest parts ov the movie). This story was written by a Christian writer, partially as an aligory to Christ, however it's not overbearing or preachy in the least. Pretty good stuff.
