By now, most everyone knows Harry Potter,
so let's just cut to the chase.
I enjoyed this film more than the first
because it has more grit and its hero transforms from a boy with
a wand to a mystical warrior battling evil critters.
The action sequences alone make the movie
worth seeing--with stunning special effects and a little complex
plot without being too complicated to follow.
It has an Indiana Jones feel, which I liked.
Twisting reality into fantasy is what Harry Potter is all about.
He's older, he's wiser, he's Harry Potter
off to his second year at Hogsworth magical school.
It's another adventure with new characters
and all the familiar faces, and more hype than any other film
in history, with biographies and backgrounds about the writers,
director, and actors (in other words, everything you expect and
will see on the extended DVD).
True to the book (with some minor changes)
and with snazzier special effects, this one will delight Muggles
and wizards alike.
Hocus-pocus, Harry Potter is back in focus,
with its magic formula left in place from the first book that
grossed almost 1 billion worldwide.
Everyone is back in this adaptation of
the second book in J.K. Rowlings' wildly popular series.
Episode two of the projected seven-part
series is cleverly produced, more streamlined, and outmatches
its own predecessor with amazing new magical powers, humor, and
special effects thrills.
