Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sequel to the enormously popular The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has more dark moments than the first movie. It broods on the nature of deceit, greed, and hunger for power. It also has a brutal one-on-one swordfight (some of the shield slams may leave even adults cringing) and extensive battle scenes that are portrayed as bone-crunching, metal-clanging, sword-lancing riots. All of the main characters, except Lucy, are responsible for many enemy deaths. That said, it's all relatively blood-free: Though characters are pierced by arrows and swords and fall to the ground (many are injured, and some do die), little gore is shown besides the odd cut on the lip or cheek. Younger viewers may notice and be unsettled by the menacing tone throughout most of the movie -- including a scary appearance by the White Witch -- though it's relieved fairly frequently with funny asides from the characters. While not overt, the movie includes Christian imagery and allegorical storylines, and the characters learn clear moral lessons by the end.

Sexual Content

Some mild flirting; a single tender kiss at the end.


Lots of swordfights and battles, some of which get pretty brutal. There's not much gore or blood, but there's tons of hitting, lancing, pushing, screaming, clubbing, and stabbing. Many characters are shot with arrows (not much blood shown). One particular one-on-one duel is quite intense and stretches out for some time, and many of the shots are filmed up close. Most of the main characters (including Peter, Edmund, and Susan) dispatch many of their enemies with swords, arrows, and more. There's also lots of discussion of war strategy, and the "bad" guys seem particularly vicious when talking about how to vanquish the Narnians.


"Shut up" and "idiot" are used a few times.

Social Behavior

The kings and queens of old, as well as Caspian, fight for what is good and true -- despite many acts of betrayal, deceit, and attempted murder. The Telmarines are determined to exterminate the Narnians, whom they regard as inferior and strange, but their point of view is presented as clearly wrong.
