Even with four C.S. Lewis booked left to film, it looks like a trilogy is all we’ll get from a franchise that started fine with The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe only to hit the buffers with Prince Caspian.
The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader clawed back some ground, but not enough to stoke excitement for new outings for the Pevensies and their Narnian chums.
The biggest problem? No villains to match the first pic’s White Witch (Tilda Swinton) and too much quasi-religious sermonising.
Our advice? Ditch the remaining installments and spin-off with rodent Reepicheep.
