Based on the book by J.K. Rowling. A boy finds out he is a wizard and that he was excepted to the Magic School, Hogwarts. It's a year filled with finding new friends and learning about new and old enemies. This movie has cartoonist visual effect's and corner writing but the movie has a sweet heart to it.

A little lighter than the later (and superior) films, but this was a great entry for the franchise. Pure magical fun!

A serviceable enough children's film but it's just crammed with rehashed, cliched old ideas and obvious sight gags and decorated with over-used and terribly dated CGI. Why anyone over the age of twelve should concern themselves with such juvenile escapism is extremely puzzling to me.

Overlong, but Likeable

Despite having never read the Harry Potter books, I was pretty sure what I was getting into before I watched the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: a basic kid's fantasy with a few kid wizards get mixed up in an evil, magical, plot. And I was correct. Essentially, I got what I expected, which- in this case- isn't a bad thing, but is it unfair to have hoped for a bit more from one of the most famed film series of all time?

Harry Potter is an orphan child that is taken to Hogwarts (a school for wizards) upon being informed that he has magical abilities. Harry befriends Ron Weasely and Hermione Granger, and it isn't long until the trio discover a villainous plan to steal the Sorcerer's Stone.

As far as fantasy films go, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is pretty solid. A l...

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone review

As indicated in my review of Deathly Hallows: Part 1, I have never read the books, not even a huge fan of the franchise. I only had time to view the 1st of the successful franchise just recently. The character development/plot was decent; score was nothing special, visual effects were realistic but the pace of the film seems to drag in the middle. It was fascinating to see the origin story of Harry Potter, even the formation of his best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. Too many background characters involved and lacking of action made this film plain. If only the triumvirate personalities were well built-up since this was the beginning for one of the most popular and successful franchises on screen. A fun beginning to what’s to come, still has some humor and entertaining se...

Good Adaptation

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is one of the best adaptation films I've ever seen.

The story for The Sorcerer's Stone is very accurate to the book. They have some of the smallest details shown on screen, sharing the magic of The Sorcerer's Stone that the book showed through the movie. There was a few details left out of the movie, but I know that's because of time.

The characters in the movie are very accurate. The way the characters interact with each other makes the movies very realistic, and the dialog is very close to the dialog in the book. I loved the way the characters looked on screen. They just stood out, as if they had been taken directly from the pages and thrown onto the screen.

Overall, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a great adaptation film. Even if ...
