All of the Harry Potter movies are well done.

Each one has different aspects and each year the kids move forward a year.

Dobby is a pretty good character though has a difficult time getting kudos since he appears to be trying to save Harry, pretty much, by killing him.

This is my least favorite Harry Potter movie but it is still super amazing and definitely worth watching.

In my review of the first movie - I mentioned how hard it was to see the movie because of the bad acting, and in this one, you see a little bit of improvement. But at the end of the day - it's really just a nostalgia film, one you have to see to understand the final movie - yet a non-Harry Potter fan would be like what is happening.

Chamber of Secrets is the second installment of Harry Potter and his adventures at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, based on the best-selling novel series by J.K. Rowling. The plot follows Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, during which a series of messages on the walls of the school’s corridors warn that the “Chamber of Secrets” has been opened and the heir of Slytherin would kill all pupils who did not come from all-magical families. These threats are found after attacks which leave students petrified. Throughout the year, Harry and his friends investigate the attacks. This movie was pure magic between the graphics which have gotten better, the plot which left me wanting more, and the portrayal of some of my favourite characters (Gilderoy Lockhart). Compared to the first film, the mood had seemed to darken a bit as it started to show how some wizard families have extreme prejudices. Rating – 5/5. @Average_Bookworm of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The Chamber of Secrets is the second movie based on J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. This time Harry is about to start his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The movie starts off with Harry sad because he has not received any letters from his school friends, Ron and Hermione. Then he finds a house elf, named Dobby, hiding in his room who warns him not to return to Hogwarts this year because he will be in danger. Ignoring the house elf, Harry and Ron find themselves blocked from entering platform nine and three-quarters to get to the Hogwarts Express. This year, Harry will definitely have to watch his back as it seems that someone is watching him. If you enjoyed the first Harry Potter movie, I would recommend watching the second as they stay true to the novel. This movie is also an opportunity to see a little bit of the wizarding world before Harry Potter’s time. It’s also good to watch if you want to know if reading the novel is right for you. Overall, I would rate this movie four out of five stars. @SapphireReads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets is a great movie it’s about Harry Potter and 2 of this friends discovering a more dark path of hogwarts wizarding school. I really like this movie because it gave you more of a backstory than any other of the Harry Potter movies did about Voldemort and Hogwarts at the same time and how everything began. Without giving any spoilers this move is about Harry Potter and his 2 friends finding something incredible, that will lead them to more mystery and which they will uncover the history of Hogwarts itself. I really like this movie because it gave a good backstory on everyone. I also like this movie because it gave us a way to look at every characters perspective on how something happened so we always get 2 sides of a story. I also like this movie a lot because it was very mysterious and made us think about what was going to happen next. This movie had great fight scenes which I enjoyed a lot about the movie and it also had many other plots to make it interesting to watch. For those reasons I would give this movie a 5/5 rating. @Teen15 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

The Chamber of Secrets was okay, but not the best. I've noticed that the Harry Potter movies are a bit long, which makes sense, considereing how much scenes from the book they tried to fit on screen. I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the first.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because this is my least favorite Harry Potter film, but it's still an amazing film. I think they tried to fit too much of the book onscreen, and it took away from the other moments of the film that really shined.

Didn't ruin the first. Built more of the magic.
