Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
Genre: Adventure, Family Film, Fantasy
This sequel feels more accomplished and finished compared to the first film 😛 . The narrative takes on a darker feel (which continues throughout the films that follow) which I prefer 🙂 . The story feels more thought out, the problems Harry has to face, the dangers for all the characters and the “Diary” is an epic twist 😛 . This movie keeps you entertained with its darker tale and bigger special effects/ adventures like the flying car and Basilisk 😀 . I would have preferred to have some elements match the book more like the look of the Basilisk. However, that section of the movie (the climatic end battle) was captivating, dangerous, entertaining and memorable (and my favourite part 😛 ). My other favourite scene is the Polyjuice potion and what Hermione changes into 😛 ! The character of Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh) was hilarious and you get to meet other amazing characters such as Lucius Malfoy (Jason Isaacs) and Dobby (voiced by Toby Jones) 😀 ! Also who can’t love the introductions to the entire Weasley family 😀 . A truly entertaining sequel that keeps up the wonder and magical quality of the first movie! Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
