Poll: Warwick Davis's Better Performance?

Postby wolfloversk » Apr 10, 2011 6:30 pm

As you all know I'm sure Warwick Davis played both Reepicheep in the BBC version of PC&VDT, Glimfeather in BBC's SC and Nikabrick in Walden's PC. Which was his best performance? Which was your favorite? What role was he better suited for? What were some good points and bad points of each? (I'll post my own thoughts later)

I voted for Nikabrik. I thought he did very well in that role. Plus, I like the Walden versions better than the BBC adaptations all around, anyway. ;))

I personally liked Warwick Davis as Nikabrik. I agree with Wen, the Walden versions are better quality (not adaptions, in some areas) than the BBC, so that's one of my reasons. Another reason is that the poor costumes Warwick had to wear looked kind of... weird ( :p ), so I like him better as a dwarf. And finally, I liked his performance the best as a traitor to Caspian's Army! :ymdevil:

Personally, my favorite performance of Warwick's was as Reepicheep in the BBC VDT and PC combo.

This is mainly because I had seen Warwick play both Reepicheep and Glimfeather before he was Nikabrik in the Walden Media version of PC. In the BBC, he played "good" characters and did a nice job playing them. It was hard to imagine him playing a villian after coming from such likable characters previously- not that he did a bad job as Nikabrick.

Wait, he was Glimfeather too? I did not know that. :ymblushing: I voted I can't decide. I think he did an excellent job in all the roles. Off of the top of my head, I can't think of anything I didn't like about any of the performances. :-\ Glimfeather really sounds like an owl; Reepicheep seems like Reepicheep; and Nikabrik was well done too.

I really can't decide. But he was great as Nikabrik. His traitor peformance is well done. He presented really great trying to kill little Lucy and being killed by Trumpkin. It was something great, but he's great in all films and moments. If you want to ask me about these older versions go here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3360.
Lucy:Do you remember who really defeated the White Witch?
Peter: Yes.
Susan:No.
Lucy:Do you both believe in Narnia?
Narnians, Caspian and Edmund:We believe.
Susan and Peter:Shut up.

He was really great as Nikabrik and was a great character. He added a bit more depth I don't find in the books. And he didn't have to wear those ridiculous costumes. When I was little, Reepicheep scared me.

He's such a really amazing small actor. He's great in movies such as Harry Potter, and Leprechaun but great in Narnia too.

Anyone else a fan? He would be one of my top five actors. Most likely second, Depp is first.

I voted "Can't decide". :) Warwick Davis is a brilliant actor in almost everything I've seen of him. I personally think he did great in all three performances.
