Oh, YES! This movie gave me the most mixed reactions of any Narnia film.
On one hand like the first two films, it was very good.
On the other hand, unlike the first two films, I got a major complaint about it: Least. Book-Accurate. Narnia film. EVER!
I had complaints about the first two films' lack of book-accuracy, but this one takes the cake!
It's like someone wrote out a timeline of the book's plot, chopped it to pieces, and then reattached them together in a mixed up order. Not to mention that this book was the only one in the series to not have a primary villain; meaning that it's more of an adventure story than a battle. But this movie takes a minor subplot of the book (which involves one evil force that is both encountered and defeated within a single chapter) and raises it to be the primary focus of the film, creating an antagonist that was otherwise nonexistant within the book's plot.
Still, though, there is one change made from the book to the movie that I gotta say was just awesome: Dragon vs. Sea Serpent!
But the major flaw of this film was its varying pace.
I hate to say it, but the old BBC mini-series episodes of this book were better than this.
