The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe review  

Nominated for three Academy Awards,

 The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe follows in the footsteps of the latest successful big-screen adaptation of other children's fantasy novels such as The Lord of the Rings books.

 The Harry Potter series. But while each of the series has basic undertones of Christian allegory, The Chronicles of Narnia is intended to be a Christian allegory.

 Written by the illustrious twentieth-century Oxford and Cambridge professor of literature, C. Lewis, The Narnia Stories were a tribute to his deep Christian faith. This transition to the big screen is something to be proud of. Directed by Andrew Adamson,

 veteran director of the Shrek series, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe is a fascinating blend of traditional human representation and computer-generated imagery.

The film follows the exploits of Pevensie's four children and two brothers and two sisters. Set during the early years of World War II,

 their mother sent them to the countryside to escape the relentless Nazi bombing raids on London. Left to fend for themselves in Professor Kirk's (Jim Broadbent)'s cavernous mansion, they engage in a traditional game of hide-and-seek,

 after which the youngest of the children,

 Lucy (George Henley), sneaks into a lone locker parked in a car. A place that could otherwise be an empty room. Upon returning through the clothes,

 he stumbles upon a winter wonderland where he meets a von named Mr. Tumnus (James McAvoy).

At first, Mr. Tumnus tries to kidnap the young girl, but he experiences a change of heart due to the kindness of her soul. As a result, he reveals to her the truth about the land on which he was found. Narnia is dominated by the evil white witch who claims to be the ruler of the jungle, but the real ruler is a lion named Aslan who long ago prophesied that the “sons of Adam”

 and the “daughters of Eve” would mark the end of a hundred years of dark history ruled by the white witch. Knowing the prophecy, the witch intends to kill the children upon their arrival. But when Lucy tells her family the facts of the case, they don't believe her.

Despite their initial reservations, her older siblings, Edmund (Scander Keynes), Susan (Anna Popplewell), and Peter (William Mosley), have all found their way to the magical land of Narnia. With talking trees, a forest full of danger,

 and an evil witch on their tail, the children of Pevensie must make their way through treacherous land to find Aslan (Liam Neeson), the Messianic Lion King who can help them achieve their goal. The rightful fate of the heirs to the thrones of Narnia

Translation results

Backed by an excellent soundtrack that perfectly complements each action sequence, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an inspiring movie of epic proportions. For Christians, 

it will have a much higher meaning than the traditional movie. For example, the climax scene in the film where Aslan makes the ultimate sacrifice will evoke images of Roman soldiers beating and mocking Jesus in the hours leading up to his crucifixion. It is without a doubt the most powerful scene in the movie.

 Meanwhile, Georgie Henley plays the innocent and terrifying Lucy in an unforgettable performance. His charisma stems from the screen in a way that's rarely popular with child actors. This performance is complemented by Tilda Swinton,

 who wonderfully plays the White Witch. It simultaneously displays the demonic traits of seductive beauty and cruel cunning with heavenly perfection. Add a final battle sequence reminiscent of Braveheart and you'll have a huge movie the whole family can enjoy. Although parents of easily startled young children should note that some of the scenes can be terrifying, 

but perhaps none more terrifying than Darth Vader and the aliens from Star Wars. However, parents should watch the movie before introducing it to young children. All in all, this first movie in the Chronicles of Narnia series deserves the attention of any cinematic...
