Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets DVD Review

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Sequels are great for the fact that youve already been introduced to the story and characters. But does Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, starring Daniel Radcliffe, have anything else up its sleeve? Check out the Kidzworld movie review to find ou

Sure, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is coming to a theater near you on November 18, 2004, but after you've checked it out, why not tune into an old favorite? Make this a full-fledged wizard weekend by catching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on ABC at 8PM on November 19, 2005!

One of the great things about sequels (there aren't actually that many), is that you've already been introduced to the whole idea, the concept and the characters. So instead of spending the first twenty minutes tryin' to wrap your noggin around who's who and what they meant when they said A or B, you get to sit back and let it all wash over you. It's like dinner at your Nana's or havin' shopping cart races with your buds at the Piggly Wiggly.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - The Goods

As sequels go, I am very happy to report that Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is even better than the first. The whole wand wavin' gang is back, but what makes this installment fly like a Nimbus gone wild is the introduction of Gilderoy Lockhart (played with ultra flair by Kenneth Branagh,) and Dobby the computer-spawned house elf. I swear some of the best performances, in the last few years, have been turned in by things cut and pasted off of somebody's MAC.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - Curse of the Sequel

If there is a criticism of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets it is this - longer isn't always better. Someone really should have spent a few minutes running through the halls of Hogwarts with scissors.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - Bottom Line

The biggest star in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is Hogwarts itself. From the mucho evil Slytherin common room, to the depths of the Chamber of Secrets, this magical mansion is amazing. A definite must-see for the whole family! Rating: 4

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
