J.K. Rowling's bajillion-dollar Potter franchise picks up steam again with the much-anticipated release of the second film based on her children's series. Unfortunately, much of that steam is blown off early.
Outstanding One of the best Harry Potter films of them all! Chris Columbus and Steve Kloves took a much darker book than the first and did a good job of preserving that in the film, while still keeping it light enough so that if one were considering the films on their own, the transition from Philospher's/Sorcerer's Stone to this one is not too shocking. The plot, which is taken from my favorite Potter book, is interesting and original, albeit a tad slower and more dragged out than the first, carrying a powerful message about the evils of bigotry and racism. The acting is great, too! Sir Kenneth Branagh's performance as Gilderoy Lockhart and Tom Felton's performance as Draco Malfoy are particularly notable. And John Williams' score is powerful and haunting as ever. This is the only Potter film that I did not see in theaters (because I was afraid of seeing the spiders), and I regret it. While it remains one of the scariest Potter films, it is also one of the most interesting. It also served as a great "immersion" therapy tool for curing me of my arachnophobia! Among the Potter films, I can't recommend this one any higher. One of the best.
Great So my real names Natalie Fish and I'm 11 and am obsessed with Harry Potter about Harry Potter 2 I thought it was great but probobly the least great :( some people think its terrible but if would try to read the books you would get it and might actually change your mind (I think the actor playing tom riddle is really cute, that's girl talk for handsome) some people don't understand that tom riddle set the baskelisk on moaning myrtle cause she was muggle born (muggle means human in wizard talk )
absolutely the best series I have read all the books, watched all the movies multiples of times and am in progress of listening to the entire series on audio books. I adore the progression of the plot, twists, and the story telling. GREAT JOB J.K. ROWLING!! hands down beats any other series of books and movies EVER
This rental went better... Last rental lasted 15 min and then expired, this rental went smoothly. Prices should be cheaper for one day rentals. Wish it had buy movie option like PlayStation store has. Highly suggest Netflix on tablet, best value.
