Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

"fans of the books won't be disappointed"

"fantastic fun for kids"

"a spectacular job"

The real gem on the DVD is a 16-minute interview with JK Rowling and Steve Kloves about the transfer from book to screen.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry returns for his second year at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry along with his best friends Hermione and Ron. He ignores warnings not to go back to Hogwarts by a mysterious house elf named Dobby. Soon into the school year strange things start happening. Students are found in a petrified state, messages written in blood appear on the walls and Harry starts to hear voices in his head. It becomes apparent that someone has opened The Chamber of Secrets... but who is responsible and can the dark forces that lurk there be stopped?

Review

The world's most famous boy wizard dives straight into a darker and more thrilling magical adventure in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It's practically the same set-up - something evil's afoot at Hogwarts; Harry and his pals must put it right - but fans of the books won't be disappointed. Director Chris Columbus, whose artistic licence is necessarily limited by the demands of adapting JK Rowling's phenomenally popular novel, does a spectacular job rendering Rowling's imaginary world.

Daniel Radcliffe gives a more assured performance here as Harry, especially with the aid of an excellent cast of experienced actors. Of course, most viewers will already know what's going to happen as far as the story is concerned, so for them the pleasure in watching The Chamber of Secrets lies in the visualisation of Rowling's magical creations and the verve brought to the action sequences. It's fantastic fun for kids and a good excuse to regress back to childhood for the rest of us.
