Editor's NoteDirector Chris Columbus recreates the magic of the second book from author J.K. Rowling's best-selling series about a young wizard, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe). In this sequel, Harry and his friends Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the new school year only to be met with a terrifying mystery. An unknown creature, one that supposedly lives in the legendary Chamber of Secrets hidden at Hogwarts, is attacking students in the school, leaving them literally petrified and as cold as stone. Even the professors seem at a loss for how to solve the chilling mystery, leaving it up to Harry and his friends to save the day. Rowling's story translates well to the big screen, with a magical flying car, a giant spider, a house elf named Dobby, and assorted other creatures making their film debuts. Radcliffe continues to charm as the wide-eyed young Potter, and Grint shines as his best friend and sidekick. Kenneth Branagh joins the all-star cast as the preening megalomaniac author and professor, Gilderoy Lockhart. HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS also stars the late Richard Harris, majestic Maggie Smith, and an under-used Alan Rickman.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - DVD Review

|The beloved Harry Potter returns to screens, a scant year after his most debut, with the film version of book two in the unfathomably popular Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Unfortunately, while the Potter-obsessed will likely find few faults with the film, this sequel captures much less of the original's magic. (And while I've not read the books, I understand the same can be said for the second novel as well.)...read the full review|

Customer Reviews of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Loved it again!!5/2/2012
I recently watched this movie, may be for the eighth time. I love all the harry potter's movies and quite frankly speaking I have not read any of the books. This is a great movie with great adventure and nice performance from all the actors. Overall, a great movie.
My Son Loves this movie5/4/2003
He watched this movie over a hundred times and never get sick of it. As a matter of fact, he finds it interesting everytime he watches it.
Three stars? What did they watch?4/20/2003
I thought this movie was every bit as good as the first, but with more action, and magic. Harry is getting stronger and more daring. I hope they will keep the same three main charaters through the entire 7 movie stretch. But 7 movies: seven years out of a young person's life is a lot to ask. The movie was great.
Jipped on DVD4/15/2003
This heavily abreviated version of a great theater experience is a huge disapointment. Many great scenes have been removed and others shortened to the point that you say "what happened to the movie" I'm taking mine back to the retailer. I will wait for the unabbriged version to come out.
I loved Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! I would have to say it was better than the first one. I can't wait to see the next one!
Chamber of Secrets still has the Magic3/5/2003
While some people will claim that this movie was a big disappointment, I believe that they are taking this way too seriously. This movie still contains all of the magic that the book does, it is just displayed in a different way. Overall, I felt that this movie was just a good as the first movie. Of course there are going to be some scenes that differ from the book, but if they went straight by the book the movie would be something like four hours long. If you are a big fan of the Harry Potter Series then this is a must have. I have already pre-ordered this and the 5th book, which is due out in June. This is a movie that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
Chamber of Secrets a disappointment2/19/2003
Chamer of Secrets was a big disappointment! All of the actors walked through their roles. There was no depth.. nothing, they seemed uninspired..bored. When I saw the first movie I was blown away by how incredible it was. What a fantastic job they did at creating a book of this nature. I was equally impressed by the young actors, unfortunately none of that was true of Chamber of Secrets. Again they omitted Peeves, and cut all of the most interesting parts from the book,and added parts that never were in the story. Lockhart whom I looked forward to, to be as intertaining as he was in the book did a complete injustice to the character. I don't blame the actors but rather the screen play writers and director. I shudder to think what they will do to my favorite book in the series "The Prisoner of Azkabon". One can only hope a new director will re-inspire the magic of the first movie. In short if you enjoyed the book, the movie will be a BIG disappointment.
