Everyone's favorite novice wizard, Harry Potter, continues his high-flying adventures at Hogwarts. This time around, Harry ignores warnings not to return to school - that is, if he values his life - to investigate a mysterious series of attacks with Ron and Hermione.
The on-screen adaptation of the sequel to Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone takes us on yet another whimsical journey of magic & wonders and covers Harry Potter's second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. But even though it is a pretty faithful adaptation of its source material, it doesn't add anything new at all to the world we already witnessed in its predecessor and simply moves the story forward without providing any improved feeling of freshness or excitement.
Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets begins with Harry Potter being warned by a house-elf against returning to Hogwarts which, as obvious, he ignores. With friendship getting stronger & rivalries becoming more intense, the second year is full of surprises for our young…
As enjoyable if not more so than the first film.
Features one of my favorite Kenneth Branagh performances. He plays such a delightful prick.
The early Harry Potter films built the Hogwarts world beautifully by recreating exactly what J K Rowling put on paper. We all had our own ideas and let our imagination run wild as we read how she described the magical world of witches and wizards, but seeing it on celluloid really brought it to life for me. I'm one of those people where sometimes the film actually is better than the book.
With this second installment the bonds between the three main characters continued to strengthen as they all started to find their feet at Hogwarts. It starts badly of course for Harry as his treatment from the Dursley's continues to look like child abuse, but with friends like Ron…
Following the rampant box-office success of The Philosopher's Stone, it was inevitable the rest of JK Rowling's magnum opus of Harry Potter books would be adapted for the silver screen, starting of course with the sequel, Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets; and it becomes clear from very early on, that any positives or negatives you may have found on the first film in said saga, by and large you're going to encounter here. With Chris Columbus returning on directorial duties and the entire principal cast for another run around, supplemented by another lovely John Williams score, Chamber of Secrets allows you to stroll back calmly into an established world that only gently begins to inch forward in terms of…
i love this movie but if i were to rank them all this would be last because there are WAY too many spiders seriously what the FUCK and theyre HUGE too i HATE it IN FACT if i were to rank every horror movie i have EVER seen THIS would be FIRST
Even repeating and going by similar narrative setways of his first film (with some lazy throwbacks), Chris Colombus still manages to make us enchanted by the world of Howgarts, expanding their universe with rich setpieces and loyalty to their original work, with moments that are able to make our eyes shine. And with some very dark moments alongside a much more intricate mystery plot, where its fabulous cast unravels more and more secrets of the rich world of Hogwarts still borning!
With the same director and cast, the Chamber of Secrets is more of the same but is probably slightly better as it doesn't have to introduce everything as well as tell a story. The leads a little more comfortable in their roles, there's a couple of great additions to the supporting cast in Kenneth Branagh's Gilderoy Lockhart and Jason Isaac's Lucius Malfoy the intriguing mystery that serves as the plot gives this one a bit of a darker tone that the series would only go further with in the future. It's maybe slightly too long but an entertaining sequel overall for sure.
In my opinion the Harry Potter movies start well and get better with each subsequent movie. The second movie doesn't disappoint in terms of story but the greenness of the young actors can be a bit grating.
For some reason or another, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has gotten a bad rap in the 14 years since it was released, but for the life of me I just do not understand why! Improving what worked in the first film, building upon the mythology and the characters, and taking things in a slightly darker direction with some more depth, the second movie in the Harry Potter series outdoes its predecessor and makes for another really strong outing in one of Hollywood's most beloved franchises.
New to the cast this time is Kenneth Branagh as Defense Against the Dark Arts professor Gilderoy Lockhart, a self-obsessed celebrity brought on to teach at Hogwarts. Branagh, as usual, does a…
Continuiamo a esplorare il mondo dei maghi. Un po' più dark di prima, con toni curiosamente a tratti molto vicini al gotico horror più che al gotico fantasy (ma è l'unica sostanziale differenza di stile dal primo capitolo).
Sequel meno fascinoso del primo capitolo, ponte tra l'Harry bambino e l'Harry adolescenziale del successivo film.
Quando Hermione era una cagaminchia e Ron ancora scemo.
160 minutes of Harry getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This was one of the first movies I ever saw in the cinema, I really liked it then and I still enjoy it.
From characters full of love and heart to amazing world building, this is a very enjoyable film for someone who grew up with, and still loves Harry Potter. Although the movie isn't very interesting cinematically apart from some impressive special effects, and its lack of a tight script to keep you engaged, I still love just going into this world for the duration of the film.
The only part of this film that amazes me is at the end and the events that transpire in the Chamber of Secrets, and those are only special for what they mean in the films to follow. Other than that I can only say that I enjoy it very much. For me it is a solid 3.5, a movie I enjoy very much.
This movie is over 2 hours and 40 minutes long. That pretty much sums it up here - this movie is bloated and slow to an incredible degree. Even though it has an intriguing mystery at it's center, there's nothing intriguing about it at all until the finale in the actual Chamber Of Secrets. And I will concede the flying car, the Harry vs. Draco moment, and the spiders are pretty great segments. A WAAAAY shorter cut of this movie would be much, much better, but the point remains: this is not a good movie. All the non-mystery stuff happening isn't interesting at all. It's not AWFUL, but it's barely serviceable. And "barely serviceable" is made even worse at 2…
Great stuff! Surprisingly mature and thrilling at times! A great 2nd entry in the franchise.
Complete list. :-(
