The follow-up to 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' finds young wizard Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), facing new challenges during their second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as they try to discover a dark force that is terrorizing the school.
I liked this follow-up to the 'Sorcerer's Stone,' but not as much as I thought I would. The film was fine---lifted right out of the book in fact. But I think that was its biggest problem. The film didn't take any risks. It was so cookie cutter to the book that it felt off somehow. But the introduction of Dobby the House Elf saved the movie for me. He is awesome! Four stars.
Chanber of Secrets is the second installment of the Harry Potter franchise. When I first saw it several years ago, it was my favorite. Second viewing, it just doesnt hold up any more.Stil, fun, but not the best
