After two entertaining and likable films starring the students of Hogwarts, we have the first truly great Harry Potter film. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban takes everything that made the first two films great, and expands upon them, making this easily the best Potter film so far.
Harry Potter and friends are once again studying at Hogwarts, though the escape of an insane murderer named Sirius Black threatens the lives of everyone at Hogwarts, namely Harry.
The characters are as lovable as ever, music is great, acting is (mostly) solid, etc. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban avoids many of the pitfalls of the first two films, and manages to bring a whole lot of new magic to the series.
The story, while seemingly simple at first, becomes more and more complex as …

Clearly much better than the first installment. A more mature cast and roles which were portrayed well by Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe. Amazing visual effects though some I thought were obviously mechanical in nature. One will be in awe for certain scenes that entail remarkable effects. The score and cinematography was just gorgeous and pleasant to look at. Its plot was like a mystery and had revealed certain backgrounds of certain characters such as Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. The screenplay was well executed based on the few lines from the film: Albus Dumbldore - "The consequences of our actions are always so diverse, so complex, that it makes predicting the future very difficult, indeed." Sirius Black - "You should have died! Died rather than betray …

I have never read the "Harry Potter" novels, so I was unaware of the story presented in this movie. With that said, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" to me is a dark movie with comical elements thrown in.
The special effects are very well done, there are only a few that didn't have the feel of reality to me. You could pick out which are puppets, and which are CGI. In my opinion, the CGI could have been better in a few scenes.
The acting is probably the best part of the movie. All the actors appeared to be comfortable in their roles. Those who uttered the nonsensical "magic words" to cast spells made you believe that the words were able to conjure up a magical spell.
One problem that stuck out like a sore thumb to me is the over-the-top performances of the actors in …

Now that they are getting older, Radcliffe, Watson and Grint are showing that they are finally achiving a higher understanding of acting ability. They have become much better as they have gotten older. I was thrilled with the addition of Gary Oldman as Sirius Black. It was strange to see Michael Gambon as Dumbledore, while the resemblance to Richard Harris's version of Dumbledore is close, the personality and the mannerisms are completely new. Gambon decided not to do an impression of Harris's Dumbledore instead he decided to just recreate the character as his own. I accept Gambon as the new Dumbledore even though it really seems to change the tone of the films if you watch the second and then the 3rd back to back. Over all I really enjoyed this film.
