This gives insight into a magical world that goes deep into the hearts of viewers. Rowling, Chris Columbus, Steve Kloves and every member of this wonderful cast and crew around to bring it to life as they have here. The Phelps brothers' Fred and George are distinctively cheeky rather than proactive pranksters; Chris Rankin imbues Percy with genuine authority. The special effects are absolutely beyond astounding, and Columbus, with a keen eye for detail and without missing a beat, keeps it all on track and moving right along at a pace and with a sense of timing that makes this an absorbing, thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable experience from beginning to end. The humour of the movie is inevitably more visual than that of the book; no belly laughs, but a lot of smiles. Even having the best special effects do not a great movie make, however, and this film is no exception; what catapults this one to the top are the performances, beginning with Radcliffe, whom you quickly forget is an actor playing a part.
The kids who play Harry's two best friends are flawless. It's all kept tasteful, classy and above the belt; there's nothing to cringe about. I wanted to say that the whole trio was exactly the same as it was represented by millions of readers in the world. We hope your game is working 100% fine because it is our first priority to upload only working and tested games. The movie changes strongly exaggerate one side of Hagrid's nature, though; probably inevitable considering how much plot exposition his character has. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer.
Reviewed by Dickoon 7 We live in a world where economics is hard. Harry's adventures getting along in the school are fun and interesting, but as they are presented to us in the film, there isn't enough tying them all together. And I'm certainly happy about how Chris Columbus embodied this idea on the screen, the fairy tale turned out to be absolutely childish, very bright, joyful and for some reason the word Christmas comes to mind, although there is not so much Christmas there. There are omissions and there are changes. This is the tale of Harry Potter, an ordinary 11-year-old boy serving as a sort of slave for his aunt and uncle who learns that he is actually a wizard and has been invited to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Because to millions of people, Harry and his companions are so much more than merely characters in a book; these are characters for whom people have made a special place in their hearts, which puts a great burden of trust upon the man who would attempt to bring them to life. Emma Watson possibly slightly overplays Hermione, but does so in a fully endearing fashion.
I never felt that way when reading the books, and this is without a doubt the very same story. The first real home, first friends, first classes, the first meeting with this evil, he is experiencing all this in the first part. It also means that the movie has to stay true to the spirit of the book rather than to the letter of it. The Quidditch scene is the most demanding of them all; while the sequence is action-packed and good-looking, disappointingly, it's not a total success. They are true fans of the story, they are the right people for the job, it all bodes very well for the second film. He inspired a kind of majestic calmness, every appearance on the screen calming. In its current form, it's almost like a preview of the book.
Harry What to say, there would not be Harry James Potter, there would not be the book itself. Therefore, it will be very hard for any film based upon it to compete with it. I was pleasantly surprised that he did not direct the Harry Potter film in this way. The problem is that the amusing details are much of what make Harry Potter such a special story. The cry of the soul, he knows that no one will congratulate him, no one will affably caress the top of his head. Rowling, a character was born: A boy. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Rubeus Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer.
Harry Potter turned in his sleep. So it could never have been the film that the hyper-literalists were hoping for, then, but it is as good as the practicalities of the real world could possibly permit. It is the tale of Harry Potter, an ordinary 11-year-old boy serving as a sort of slave for his aunt and uncle who learns that he is actually a wizard and has been invited to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Dan Radcliffe has the look, the mannerisms and the charm of Harry down pat. In it, I see a part of myself.
A film in which adults and children alike will rejoice, because it speaks to the heart in a universal language of life, love, experience and imagination; a film that states unequivocally that magic exists-- as long as there's a single child with a single dream somewhere in the world, and real wizards like J. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Rubeus Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. Indeed, Harry Potter is a boy, but not just any boy; because Harry Daniel Radcliffe just happens to be a wizard. Actors took absolutely unknown, but this film made them real little stars. David Bradley has a vicious Argus Filch; John Hurt's Ollivander is an eccentric treat, giving a wonderful introduction to the Wizarding World. Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. The answer, I think, is that the books portray much of Harry's anxiety in trying to succeed in school for if he's kicked out, he'll go straight back to his horrible uncle and fit in with the kids there.
Always the elders took on everything superior to Ron, be it study, sport, or female attention. A wonderful performance by a gifted actor who has a great career ahead of him; without question the perfect choice for the role of Harry. Two and a half hours is not long to explore a wonderful, magical world. He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted. More than rising to the occasion and with some magic of his own-- and a lot of help from an extraordinarily talented cast and crew-- Columbus has delivered a film that is not only true to the story, but true to the very spirit that makes Harry Potter so special. According to an article I read a year ago, the universe of Harry Potter has become as real in the minds of youngsters and adults as that of a popular movie series like Star Wars.
