I'm really happy with how this installment turned out. I can easily recommend that you grab the kids and catch it on the big screen.

...a good, atmospheric stepping stone in the Potter chronology, with yet something missing to make it an entirely satisfying movie on its own. (Ultimate Edition, Blu-ray)

The overall look is purposely grim and downbeat.

This is the best of the Harry Potter films. It's not that there's more magic, it's just more magical.

Just like Hagrid when he's faced with the certain death of his faithful pet Buckbeak, the audience falls into the emotional trap that Cuarón creates.

A picture that's not only a franchise peak but a high point of the whole summer. For the first time in four years of half-trying, I'm gathering what all the fuss is about.

This time out the spell that's cast is actually a potent one. Cuaron's talent is the magical ingredient in this concoction.

The third time is less charming and more serious, yet Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban easily meets our requirements for a bewitching adventure.

A new filmmaker provides his take on the third book by author and creator J. K. Rowling, providing a darker tone that meets the book halfway for its... wiser student wizard.
