This movie... has two version of the subtitle. I honestly don’t know why this is. But Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. Based on the book from J.R Rowling This movie had to set up a lot and you feel the set up. And it’s tirering on repeat watches. So what’s Harry Potter story.

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 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.

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 …
