Writer-director Andrew Adamson must have been emboldened by the unequivocal success of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, for this is a far more specific exploration of C.S. Lewis’ Christian themes. Prince Caspian, in which Narnia is in the hands of cruel humans and the heroic lion Aslan is nowhere to be found, is a test of faith for its young characters. They must learn their way through a world with a seemingly absent god. Far more than your standard moral fantasy about good versus evil, this is a movie about how the good handle their goodness, and how they sometimes fail.
