Consensus: Its leisurely, businesslike pace won't win the franchise many new fans, but Voyage of the Dawn Treader restores some of the Narnia franchise's lost luster with strong performances and impressive special effects.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is still very much a "Narnia" movie. In other words, it's filled with fantastical creatures, bloodless battles, quasi-mystical undercurrents and an unfortunate helping of hooey.

Christian Science Monitor

The 3-D effects are standard, the children and the prince are a bit bland, and Michael Apted's direction veers into listlessness, but there is, at times, a pleasing elegance to the production, too. It doesn't assault you.

A good old-fashioned adventure story, this family-friendly film benefits from several outstanding supporting characters.

I'd read in my Entertainment Weekly magazine about how boring they (or that editor) thought it was, but I rather enjoyed it start to finish, myself.

Just what would be expected! A fun continuation to the Narnia series.
