better than the first,
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets  [DVD] (DVD)
In this second movie we find quite the same flaws and assets of the first one: direction and screenplay are rather weaker than the rest, they would have needed better editing, but still they are somewhat better than in the first.
Probably because of the fact that characters and settings have already been introduced before, the movie concentrates more on the actual story which flows well to its satisfying end. Acting is superb and the quality of the filming as well as the scenes nearly breathtaking.
In this second movie too there are several variations in the plot but the spirit of the book remains untouched.
