Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets

Image for Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets

Harry's second year at Hogwarts proves an entertaining, if frustrating film. A storyline including evil magic, monsters and murder proves far more plot-driven and darker in tone then Philosophers Stone, and an increased effects budget makes for some marvellous set pieces. Bursts of saccharine-sweet sentimentality and lazy performances from older cast members are disappointing though, saved only by the excellent three child leads, Kenneth Branagh and Jason Isaacs. Still, problems aside, a tricky second outing has been negotiated well. Expect Mr Potter to have you under his spell all over again.
