Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Audience Reviews

KnotMissPriceless Why so much hype?
Unlimitedia Sick Product of a Sick System
GazerRise Fantastic!
Tayyab Torres Strong acting helps the film overcome an uncertain premise and create characters that hold our attention absolutely.
joshcardinal Maybe a controversial opinion but this is the best movie adaptation in the Harry Potter series! We truly see the world of magic and Hogwarts through Harry's eyes, full of wonder, excitement, and yes, darkness and danger. I don't know why the later films thought they had to be all green light and creepy shadows to get the point across- this movie proves you can do the dramatic parts just through stakes, acting, music and the other traditional movie elements. The kids are adorable, the special effects actually hold up, and Dumbledore, well, he's the true Dumbledore. LOVE THIS MOVIE.
willcarter-56155 The sixth installment in the incredibly popular wizard series carries on the tradition of following the books. The half-blood prince probably won't bring with it the expectations that came with the Philosopher's stone but then it is expected to be lower key as the franchise comes to a closure- there remains just one more book after this (deathly hollows). However, this film is darker in tone and should be headed for more mature territory just like the series.
focusphoto This movie has all aspects of a great movie. It is a megesticall mistory and is good for all ages
assiasakim Firstly I'm not a big fan of fantasy movies but I find harry potter a very outstanding movie of all the time. I have seen it several times and each time I am enchanted by the story like my first time watching it. It is a movie full of surprises, triller and adventures that keeps you glued to you seat. I think that Harry Potter is a movie of all time and it is dedicated for all ages. I was amazed by the design and the story. The movie has a great acting. I thought that it is a must-see.
