* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Those who don't [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks hate the changes]] feel the film did this for the ''Prince Caspian'' story - which had been viewed as the ParvumOpus of the series.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The film adds the possibility that Susan's [[spoiler: eventual denial of Narnia]] is due to the romance that could never happen with Caspian.



* BrokenBase: The Caspian and Susan romance. Some invoke TheyChangedItNowItSucks and StrangledByTheRedString. Others were happy Susan had something to actually do in the film (as she did very little in the book) and liked the foreshadowing to her eventual fate.



* EvenBetterSequel: WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic called the film this, praising the CharacterDevelopment, AdaptationExpansion and DarkerAndEdgier tone. He compared it to a proto ''Series/GameOfThrones''.



* LoveToHate: Sergio Castellitto's take on King Miraz, making him a very effective and ruthless villain - with the occasional PetTheDog moment to humanise him. Likewise he also gets some good DeadpanSnarker moments.
* OneSceneWonder: Tilda Swinton returns as Jadis for one scene, as an expansion of a point in the book where they consider resurrecting her.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Those who don't [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks hate the changes]] feel the film did this for the ''Prince Caspian'' story - which had been viewed as the ParvumOpus of the series.



* StrangledByTheRedString: In the film (not the book), Caspian and Susan become a couple. For five minutes at the end of the movie because he rescued her once from some soldiers. Suddenly at the end the two are snogging in front of a crowd, only for their relationship to end five seconds later after Susan and her siblings return through the portal to England, meaning she and Caspian will never see each other again. Thus, there was no reason to include their romance in the first place because it was doomed to end anyway..

* SophomoreSlump: Sort of. This was the second book published - though the fourth chronologically - and it's commonly regarded as the weakest. The film is a mixed bag. Some felt it was a step down, others loved it.
* StrangledByTheRedString: In the film (not the book), Caspian and The romance between Susan become a couple. For five minutes at the end of the movie because he rescued her once from some soldiers. Suddenly at the end the two are snogging in front of a crowd, only for their relationship to end five seconds later after Susan and her siblings return through the portal to England, meaning she and Caspian will is accused of this. There was none in the book and it was DoomedByCanon anyway. The whole thing is very chaste and never see each other again. Thus, there was no reason to include their progresses beyond simple flirtation - culminating in a small kiss at the end. WordOfGod is that the romance was more detailed in the first place original script, but cut down to a more chaste thing because they wanted to avoid it was doomed taking over the movie.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: This film provoked this more than the first. Due
to end anyway..the book's iffy pacing[[note]]The Pevensies arrive in Narnia, meet Trumpkin and then he tells them everything that had happened up until then (including Miraz storming Aslan's How)[[/note]], a lot of things had to be changed. Things that were especially disliked were the castle raid and the romance between Susan and Caspian.


Added DiffLines:

* UnfortunateImplications: Subverted. The Telmarines are given a RaceLift to become AmbiguouslyBrown Mediterranean people - WordOfGod saying this is to reflect their pirate origins. However both General Glozelle and Queen Prunaprismia are given AdaptationalHeroism to avoid having all the villains be like this.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: It seems like the movie is building up to something interesting with Miraz's wife being shocked to learn of his evil actions, but then she's largely forgotten about.

* HarsherInHindsight: The use of "The Call" at the end of ''Prince Caspian'' will likely become this once ''The Last Battle'' is made.

* * BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Susan and Lucy partying with Bacchus while the boys rescue Caspian. It has no impact on the plot, the mythology crossover is never explained, and it's never mentioned again.

* StrangledByTheRedString: In the film, Caspian and Susan interact for only two scenes, yet their separation is treated like a huge tragic romance, despite them barely connected at all. Note that in the book they had no such "romance".

* RetroactiveRecognition: [[GameOfThrones Tyrion Lannister]] is slightly grumpier, but quite recognizable.
