Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Daniel Radcliffe repeats his role as Harry Potter, and Emma Watson as his pal Hermione Granger has become a real charmer. The plot concerns an unknown, hidden room in the Hogwarts dungeons complete with a monster; where an unknown villain manages to let the monster out to attack various victims and leave them petrified. A mysterious diary offers a way into the chamber of secrets, where a frightened little girl is being held prisoner. Harry and his chums are trying to solve the mystery, as the fate of Hogwarts School hangs in the balance. And there's a colorful new set of characters including - Dobby the House Elf a weird little figure who's a neurotic, hyperactive, do-gooding sprite who will make you laugh and remind you of Jar-Jar Binks in Star Wars, Gilderoy Lockhart a fraudulent wizard played deliciously by Kenneth Branagh who seem to have all the best lines, and Miriam Margolyes as Professor Sprout, who tells the class how to re-pot their mandrakes grotesque baby plants. Director Chris Columbus's high-energy direction keeps the camera endlessly moving along walls revealing horrible messages or nasty surprises, and they swoop through the sky around the Gothic towers of the school, zooming in on vivid faces full of threat and conspiracy with many thrilling special effects sequences helping to keep this somewhat overlong spectacle moving along nicely. This wonderful new film should be acceptable for kids aged 8 and up, depending on how susceptible they are to nightmares.
