I think this version is pretty much spoiler free.
I was a bit disappointed. *ducks flying debris*
It wasn't bad! I'll totally get it on DVD. But, I went into it expecting to come out of it saying, "WOW! I wanna see it AGAIN!" I didn't.
There were a few changes from the book that weren't necessary to make the transition to film, which I felt actually detracted from the story, and the special effects weren't as special as I thought they were going to be.
The actors, however, were phenomenal! That's not clear enough. They were amazing, astounding, extraordinary, fantastic, marvelous, outstanding, remarkable, sensational, and wondrous. Even in the worst of the scenes, it wasn't the child actors who couldn't pull it off. They were 100% believable every step of the way. They perfected every head tilt and blink. They had inflection mastered in a way that puts to shame some overpaid adult actors (*cough* Cruise *cough*).
I still don't buy Liam Neeson as Aslan. I understand that James Earl Jones is over used in that type of role, but Neeson just doesn't scream "God's animagus
" to me.
But, even with all that, I did enjoy it, and I will buy it on DVD, and my kids will watch it 100 times at LEAST, and I'll probably watch it a few times with them.

ETA: Both my 7 & 5 year olds went with me. My 5 year old said that she had to close her eyes once, but that it wasn't a "scary movie." 7 year old was 100% fine.
