It still has the same negatives of the first film, but thankfully it has the same positives too and they're done to an even higher standard. Overall, it isn't a perfect film, but it's a much better movie than the first and the direction of Chris Columbus was history after this. I'm glad he made these two films what they were and then stopped there.
Typical Harry Potter very well done
As I always do I love all the Harry Potter movies. J K Rowling is marvelously smart in a great way. Thank you
An excellent movie, Well made! Dipicts the story book well and makes you want to watch the rest of the series.
There is no doubt that the movies production value is high but that's all that is good about it. The acting is stilted and wooden (especially from Radcliffe) and the script just falls in love with dues ex machina at every turn. Most of the characters are badly portrayed and the bloody elf is excruciatingly annoying.
If you can keep questions like 'why don't they just shut the school down?' or 'how does a 50ft snake slide through pipes throughout the school and not be seen or heard?' then you might have fun with this.
Oh, and the ending scene completely boggles my mind.. what the... (real cringe inducing stuff..)
Excellent value, great special effects and truly exciting for kids.
This movie is not to be missed - scary in some parts, but overall great viewing.
Kids loved it, must watch if you've read the books.
Highly entertaining. Brilliant cast all round. Visually stunning. A good story for young and old.
This was great for the whole family.
This is an excellent movie, maybe a little scary for youngsters, with humungus spiders and basilisks etc., but great fun in every other way. Those kids are like fine wine, improving well with age, while Kenneth Branagh is outstanding as Gilderoy Lockhart. Definitely on my to-watch-again list.
A little more for the older kids, this second Harry Potter movie is more darker and scarier this time around, The special effects are great and this takes off from the first movie. Great.
I really liked this one. I thought it was much better than the first Harry Potter movie. I seemed to get more involved with all the characters this time.
If you love reading Harry Potter you will love the movie's even more, they are suitable for childred 10 years + and any adult with a great sense of adventure.
Good fun and reflects the book well
Very clever, entertaining, worth watching.
It helps if you have read the book first!
Brilliant! Even better than The Philsopher's Stone! Adults & kids of all ages will enjoy this movie.
I like the action and the mystery. It is freaky when the basilisk appears.
Kids were enjoying it a lot.
Great movie with lots of action. Not recomended for the young ones as a it a bit scary in parts.
Not only for the little kids. Lots of fun
Great second movie in the Harry Potter series, very enjoyable.
