Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ★★½

People overrate this so much. It tries to fixes what ain't broken and tries to please critics when all that is needed is another simple adventure. Why does expeliarmus disarm some people and blow others away? Why does hagrids house look different? Why is a patronus just a weird white shield? Quaron changed so much from the book and the two prior films that didn't need changing and it feels like this is made darker just to be darker. There are good thing about it and some excellent scenes. Also Ron, Hermione and Malfoy are excellent while radcliffe really isn't a good enough actor to carry the lead role in this new 'realistic' HP universe wheread his over-the-top performance seemed to fit in the previous 'charicature-films'
