Movie: Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

We saw this in 3-D (not much difference, actually) at the local multiplex a couple of days ago. The NYT review and this additional piece on keeping the Narnia franchise alive cover it pretty well.

I would have preferred a bit more psychology and a bit less action-of-the-sort-where-it-is-clear-all-along-what-will-happen. The various temptations do not receive much attention, and when they arise they are quickly and easily dealt with. Would that it were so in real life! Presumably it is not so in the underlying book.

Recommended only if need a movie suitable for children.
