Skandar Keynes, probably the best actor among the Pevensie children, offers moments of intrigue as the bumbling but brave Edmund, but he is too often pushed to the sidelines so that Peter and Caspian can have another squabble about who's in charge of Narnia.
The pair's confrontations are undoubtedly the weakest moments in the movie, with Barnes and Mosely coming across like a pair of public school wallies kicking up a stink about who gets to captain the school rugga team.
Adamson attempts to use the weaker plotline to his advantage and make a darker movie, akin to the trilogy, stuffing as much violent swashbuckling and sword slashing as he can into the two and half hours as he possibly can without losing the movie's PG certificate.
The film also brushes across themes of growth, adulthood and innocence, but this is often with broad brush strokes rather than any subtle scripting of character development.
While there's enough mildly-thrilling action and impressive set-pieces in to ensure most children will go home from cinemas happy, it lacks the sort of magic that would turn the film from an average blockbuster into a mainstream franchise.
It's unlikely anyone will go home from the movie and dig out Lewis's original books or ask their parents for a Narnia pack-up box for Christmas.
