Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Reviews
Arguably on of the best out of the Harry Potter franchise. I liked the shift of cinematography a lot: no simple camera angles but long takes and sophisticated shooting methods. The way time was integrated into this movie was done very well too.
"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" se ve enormemente beneficiada de la dirección de Alfonso Cuarón, quien entrega una historia mas adulta y mejor elaborada, que cumple con mucha holgura en todo lo demás, es sin dudas la segunda mejor película de la franquicia.
This magical movie has brought laughter and surprises to many homes and theatres all over the world. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was directed by Alfonso Cuaron and released in 2004. Its Harry Potter's (Daniel Radcliffe) third year at Hogwarts, and he learns serial killer Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) is on the loose and searching for him. Hermione's (Emma Watson) cat torments Ron's (Rupert Grint) rat, causing a rift among the trio, and a swarm of Dementors are sent to protect the school. A mysterious new teacher helps Harry learn to defend himself, but what's his tie to him and Sirius Black? Cuaron did an amazing job in throwing his own little twists and turns into the movie, keeping the audience captified and at the edges of their seats. Even though he failed to incorporate many of the points that author J.K Rowling makes in the book, he was able to keep the movie interesting and entertaining. Unlike the two movies before this one, Alfonso Cuaron expands the view of Hogwarts and takes many scenes outside, making the movie more open and giving it much more room to breathe. If you've seen Lord of the Rings, Percy Jackson, Narnia, or other fantasy movies, you would surely enjoy this fun filled film. This is a family friendly movie that every Harry Potter fan needs to see.
It's darker and more mature, but that only helps bring out what these movies are always about: family and friendship.
"Harry: Expecto Patronum!"
