When I went to see this film I was expecting a lot and that's exactly what I got. The children's acting abilities have come on leaps and bounds, especially Rupert Grint and Emma Watson who now seem a lot more confident. Jason Isaacs performance as Lucious Malfoy depicts him as the ultimate children's film villain (despite the fact it's Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter series) but it's Kenneth Brannagh that steals the show. I wasn't sure how well he'd do but he hams up the part of Gilderoy Lockheart to perfection. As for the actually DVD release, they seem to be doing a "Lord Of The Rings" style film with 19 new or extended scenes (much better than the previous film's seven hidden scenes) as well as cast interviews, interactive games and much more. Hopefully it will be easier to navigate than the Philosophers Stone DVD. If the bonus features live up to the standards of the film, it will definitely be worth buying. Check it out.
