Overall, let me say that it's an entertaining movie that's good for the family. A worthy sequel. I think a 7/10 is generous. This movie is probably a 6. That being said, there are way too many battles and almost none of them involve magic. This is a fantasy! Another thing missing from this 'fantasy' is that feeling of wonder that fantasies are supposed to bring you. The first movie had this in spades but that's probably because we were introduced to Narnia for the first time. Still, the Lord of the Rings sequels managed to keep the element of wonder in each one (remember first seeing the White City? Wow) Tilda Swinton also made for a much better villain in the first Narnia compared to this sequel's antagonist. That's just one of the reasons this movie has almost no dramatic elements at all. Basically, the problem can be summed up as it is in many sequels. They figure just adding more (be it length, be it volume, be it whatever) is enough. It isn't. Anyway, it's not a movie aimed at adults so I have to give it more than a passing grade because the target audience (teens and tweens) will love it. I like how this movie reminds us how good the LOTR movies were :)
