Lewis' savior tale parallels epic redemptive story

The unending battle between good and evil is a story that has been told in many forms. One of the most famous and lasting renditions is C.S. Lewis? Chronicles of Narnia, which has been brought to the big screen in the form of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

This epic tale is about four siblings that find themselves in a strange and foreign land named Narnia, through a mysterious magical wardrobe. The story is filled with strange and beautiful creatures, along with a storyline almost exactly paralleling the death of Christ and salvation of man, with the aid of a lion Messiah, Aslan.

Shot on location in New Zealand, London and the Czech Republic, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is full of stunning landscapes from a blinding white snow covered forest, to the rocky plains of an epic battlefield. Computer effects are taken to another level with the many characters such as the centaurs [half-man half-horse].

The four siblings, which the story revolves around, are all new faces to the American audiences. Lucy, the youngest of the four, is played by Georgie Henley, a girl of only seven. With an acting ability not often seen in such young children, she is sure to be a recurring face in films.

Skandar Keynes plays Edmund, the youngest boy, envious of his older brother Peter, played by William Moseley. Anna Popplewell, who carries out the motherly figure in the group, plays oldest sister, Susan.

Liam Neeson also lends his voice to the Jesus figure Aslan.

Andrew Adamson was hired as the director, well known for his work on Shrek I and II. Some of his high-profile works include being the visual effects supervisor for Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.

With the completion of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the public need for an epic sword battle has never been greater. Since the Disney Corporation worked to keep its PG rating, the movie lacks the edge that Lord of the Rings so superbly held.

This movie will be enjoyed by anyone looking for a thrilling family film full of imagination and moral undertone. The film does give credit to the book with almost an identical story line.

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe reaches all audiences with C.S. Lewis’ savior story and epic thrills Lord of the Rings has left. This will instantly become a classic in Christian films.

This film is currently being shown in all theatres nation wide, including Edwards Cinema at RiverPark. For more information call Edwards at 559-447-3247.
