Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "...among the things this ''HP'' does very well indeed is deepen the darker, more frightening atmosphere for audiences of all ages already familiar with the intricacies of the ''Potter'' landscape. (This is as it should be: Harry's story is supposed to get darker.) Besides, the gathering darkness is funny as often as it's scary, the returning actors now fully filling out their flowing robes and pointed hats.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Very Good "The first hour occasionally feels sluggish and prone to aimless wandering. After that, once the main story kicks into high gear, the film comes across as better focused and faster paced – at least until the last quarter-hour and the seemingly endless denouement.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Excellent "The first movie was the setup, and this one is the payoff. "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" leaves all of the explanations of wizardry behind and plunges quickly into an adventure that's darker and scarier than anything in the first Harry Potter movie. What a glorious movie.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Excellent "Relieved of the burden of character introduction that fell to HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE, this adaptation of J.K. Rowling's second novel is free to get off to a rollicking start. Fans have little reason to complain: Chris Columbus makes the novel's transformation into a big-budget feature look effortless, and the film's darker tone is more satisfying than that of the first...''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Well this is certainly no surprise. I think we all knew Harry would receive some excellent moviegoer opinions and it certainly did. Even though my recommendation won't be of much value, I will highly recommend "Harry Potter."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Much like how the first film crossed age barriers despite a mammoth two-hour-plus running time, the latest film in the fantasy adventure series should also be a hit with the entire family and with all age groups. Darker in tone than the first film, there are a few creepy-crawly sequences that will be too scary and intense for younger children, but otherwise this is a film parents won't feel bad about taking their kids to, nor one that non-parents will feel embarrassed seeing on their own.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Harry Potter (DANIEL RADCLIFFE) has not had a good summer. Not only has he had to put up with his overbearing Aunt Petunia (FIONA SHAW) and Uncle Vernon Dursley (RICHARD GRIFFITHS) and their dread of his magical abilities, but it seems as if Harry's best friends Ron Weasley (RUPERT GRINT) and Hermione Granger (EMMA WATSON) have forgotten him as they haven't replied to a single one of his letters. Then, suddenly and mysteriously, house-elf Dobby appears in Harry's bedroom and warns him of great danger if he should attempt to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Dobby is so eager to prevent the young Gryffindor from returning to Hogwarts, he has blocked all of Ron and Hermione's correspondence from reaching Harry. But despite the elf's mischievous efforts, the ever-determined Harry is rescued from the Dursleys' dreary clutches by Ron and his brothers – with the aid of a flying car! – and whisked into the warmth of the Weasley household.

But when Harry and Ron are suspiciously prevented from entering Platform 9 ¾ and boarding the Hogwarts Express back to school, the boys take emergency action to avoid being late for the new term – only to incur the wrath of Professor Snape (ALAN RICKMAN), who calls for their expulsion after they crash the flying Ford Anglia into Hogwarts' enchanted Whomping Willow tree.

Meanwhile, news of Harry's first year heroism has spread throughout Hogwarts and he finds himself the center of much unwanted attention. His new fans include Ron's little sister Ginny (BONNIE WRIGHT); first year would-be photographer Colin Creevey (HUGH MITCHELL); and most irritatingly, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor, Gilderoy Lockhart (KENNETH BRANAGH).

Outshone only by his own vanity, Lockhart craves the attention that Harry shuns and is all too willing to associate himself with Hogwarts' young hero. But not even Lockhart can offer an explanation for the sinister new terror that is gripping the school.

Now all eyes are on Harry, and his friends are beginning to doubt him. Everyone, that is, except Ron, Hermione and fragile young Ginny, whose focus has turned to her mysterious new diary.

But Harry is not about to let his friends down and, with or without the support of Gilderoy Lockhart, he will confront the dark force lurking in his beloved school.
