Today Olga and I went to see “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban“. This is a third sequel to a very well known Harry Potter story.
This time the director was different. Instead of Chris Columbus, who did both “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” and “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone“, it is Alfonso Cuarï¿½n. And it shows. Generally it’s the same kind of story with the same people in the same places, but few bits lose the touch. Somehow it feels unfinished. In few places it is very noticable, in others – not.
Overall it is a nice movie to go and see, especially I think if you read the book (I didn’t) or if you enjoy computer graphics a great deal. But in comparison if the previous two films I found this one a bit lacking satisfaction. I will surely go see the next two parts (in 2005 and 2007), which will be done by yet two other different directors. :)
