In his second year at Hogwarts a dark force terrorizes the students and Harry becomes a suspect. This movie is more corning then the first movie with the visual effect's and the writing but I don't hate this movie I actually liked the movie.

Probably the weakest in the series. A lot like the first film. Highly entertaining and well-done!

This is a slightly darker and more mature sequel to the magical first film, with a more fearsome villain and hints at the greatness of the film series' conclusion. It's not my favorite of the Potter films, but it's adventure-packed and features some great visual moments, particularly the Basilisk fight.

Like all Harry Potter films it can entertain you but it's not great.

Slightly better than the first film. It's still one of the most faithful book adaptations I've ever seen, like it's predecessor, but it also retains that kid-friendly-ness and lack of emotion. The third act is more dangerous and surprising, though.

This was a decent sequel and had better performances by Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. Daniel Radcliffe still left something to be desired, but overall, not a bad casting decision as he blossoms later, outshining his fellow cast members, but as of "Chamber of Secrets," I'd have to say he was the least impressive performer. Kenneth Branagh offers his own unique charm and delight in his role as Professor Lockhart, doing justice to the literary character, as he often does.

One of the better adaptations, "Harry Potter and the Camber of Secrets" brings to life one of the better books series I've read. The story was good, and from what I remember, doesn't miss the big picture of the book. The acting is good, using most of the same actors from the first movie. The magic that the book had was really brought to life through the imagination and ideas of the directing and acting crew. The characters in the film were almost exactly as they were in the book, which made for a great experience watching. I can't remember any details in particular that made the movie different from the book character wise. I loved the adaptation more than the other Harry Potter movies.

As it should be, the worst of the books became the worst of the movies. As the kids grow, so does their acting ability, which was very weak in the first film. But, this one is only so-so because of two things, the source material was average at best and Chris Columbus's directing was no good. He tried to turn every moment he could into a Hallmark moment, when he should have just let it be.

As a follow up this was good. To create a well made sequel, even if it is off of a famous book, is not an easy challenge. The effects were well done, and the adaptation to screenplay was decent. Unfortunately this is also one of Richard Harris' las roles. He performed very well as Dumbledore and he gave the character a certain charasmatic charm.

Based on my least favorite Potter novel, the film folllows suit. The actors have gotten better, but are still finding their voice. On par with the first, but not better.
