I really don't get the people saying this is the worst in the Harry Potter Saga, or people not liking it as much as the other movies.
Maybe it's because I saw this when I was a kid and still have some nostalgia for it, but for me, this is just a really great movie that takes me to a different world.
We are introduced to so many great characters, all wonderfully played by the elite of British actors.
I always preferred the first two over the rest of the movies because they got really dark really quickly, while this movie was more of a fun adventure.
I've probably seen this movie more times than I could count, still it never bores me. There is so much to see. The effects aren't the best ever made, but for a movie from 2001 they are great.
I just love this movie and I will rewatch the whole saga in the next few weeks, we'll see if I maybe changed my mind. But to me, this was a great movie, a fun movie, and I really enjoyed it.
Also, Richard Harris is a great Dumbledore, I don't care what everyone else thinks.
4.5 out of 5 stars and a like.
