This is a great movie. Even though it's long, you will really get into it. And to the guy that said there wasn't blood in the stabbing, the series was created for kids! If you pay attention, this book/movie relates lot to the Christians. This is definitely worth your time and money.

The beloved children’s story “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” comes to the screen at last in a lavish and rich presentation that is faithful to the classic novel by C.S. Lewis.
The film opens with a bombing raid by the Luftwaffe over the city of London during WWII. Amidst the carnage and chaos, four children and their mother make their way from their house to a shelter that is all but one named Edmund (Skandar Keyes), who risks his life to venture back to the house to retrieve a cherished picture of their father who is away fighting the war. This compassionate act draws the ire of the oldest Peter (William Moseley), who finds himself in the roll of man of the house in his father’s absence. In an effort to avoid further risk, their mother ships the children north to live away from the bombings until the wars end. At first the children are daunted by being away from home and living in such a large house, but soon they grow to accept their situation. Cut off from their peers, and with only a reclusive professor and stern housekeeper for company, the children setout to amuse themselves in the spacious home. In short order, the children learn that they are caught in a battle between the legions of the White Witch and the forces of the good lead by the return of a fabled Lion know as Aslan (Voiced by Liam Neeson). It is learned that there is an ancient prophecy that when four children of Adam return and sit at a stone table, then the rule of the witch and the century long winter will finally end. Naturally the Witch, with Edmund in tow, does not want this and is ruthless in her efforts to locate and kill the children to preserve her power.
Assisted by a myriad of talking animals, the Children save their brother and Mr. Tummnus from the witch and return home.
The film is a winner and should become a classic for the ages.

The movie has it's moments, but overall, the story develops very slowly. Once it's at pace, the amazing effects and sets really take the all the glory away from the story. I'd recommend, but don't expect to be blown away.
I don't have the PSP version, but I do have the DVD and this is one awesome movie! If you like fantasy, suspense, emotional movies, then this is the movie for you. What I really like about it is that is is based on the Bible. Trust me, don't rent this, BUY IT!
Think of Narnia the movie like a Lord of the Rings but for the whole family. The same amount of action, great battle sequences, and really everything else. Some may say "this is stupid because the lion doesn't eat the kids". Have you ever thought that the lion was on the good side? One thing that got me mad were the child actors. Being a kid myself I know I can act better and not annoy the audience at the same time. Plus they could've at least put alittle blood.
with parts that are so stupid that they make no sense, and when peter stabs someone there is no blood, and when they go across the ice river, they send a beaver to check if its okay...A BEAVER! yeah because a beaver weighs the same as 3 humans. and 2 young girls seat easily on a lion...? and the brave king couldn't even kill wolf to protect his family. and the plot holes. MY GOD! i hated this movie. every second was like knives into my eyes. for they love of gad and in the name of all that is holy, don't see this movie.
The whole production of this movie was very well done. The cgi was really crisp and clean. It has it's moments of suspense and tender moments. I would highly recommend this movie for everyone. When I first heard about the movie, it was one of those that seemed like eh, another book to movie, untill I finally got around to watching it. Now that I've seen it, I loved it, so give it a try.
