I didn't know what to expect in this movie since I didn't remember much from the book. The background music wasn't as good as the music composed for Prince Caspian. The story felt like a bunch of small TV episodes strung together rather than a united whole.
I still enjoyed the movie even though it wasn't as great as Prince Caspian and some aspects of the story were changed to make it more interesting for the audience. I wished there were more Narnian creatures though. Most of the cast was human except for a minotaur sailor, Reepicheep (a mouse), and a few fauns. I guess it makes sense that there were a limited amount of Narnian creatures; most of the movie is located on a ship at sea. I still missed the griffins, though.
