5.0 out of 5 stars Potter for President!, 6 April 2003
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Two Disc Widescreen Edition) [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Anyone who, like me, hates to see fantastic books meddled with on screen in the name of "artistic license" will not be disappointed with this gem of a film. While some material from the book obviously had to be cut in the interests of not making a five-hour movie, what's there is largely un-tampered-with. Columbus and co have clearly gone to great lengths to remain faithful to JK Rowling's wonderful vision, and this film features perfect performances from a star-studded cast. I admit I was sceptical at the choice of Kenneth Branagh to play Lockhart, having seen the character more as a bumbling (and blonde!) Hugh Grant-type, but Branagh soon won me over. As to the rest, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane et al, magically bring to life the diverse characters of Hogwarts, and the three young actors at the centre of it all make a perfect trio. One can only hope the rumours that Daniel Radcliffe is soon to be replaced are untrue, as I simply cannot imagine a more appropriate Harry!
For now though, just sit back and enjoy this wonderful movie experience, trust me - it's not just for kids!
