Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)Olga wanted to watch the Potter series, so I joined in for the “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets“. I’ve seen it before, but since I didn’t blog about it, it was a good idea to refresh the memory.

Directed by: Chris Columbus
Genres: Adventure, Family, Fantasy, Mystery
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Richard Griffiths, Fiona Shaw, Harry Melling, Toby Jones, Jim Norton, Veronica Clifford, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Julie Walters, Bonnie Wright, Mark Williams, Chris Rankin
IMDB raintg: 7.3
My rating: 8.0 ********

This is the second film in the sequence. While it is still remarkably good, I did think it was as good as the first one. The first film had all the novelty and introduced audience to the characters and setups, while brought in some story to watch for as well. This part though had mainly the story. There were some developments to the characters and some new setups, but the majority of things stayed the same. Maybe it’s a good thing though.

I also liked how computer graphics were seemlessly introduced in the film at a much deeper level. I guess some of the money earned with the first part found its way to the good cause.

Resume: strongly recommended to all unscaryable kids and fairy tale fans.
