Blunt Reviews Presents: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)

harry potter 2

If you can look past some pretty awful child acting, there are still a number of significant flaws. Considering the time period and the quality of the first film the visuals are particularly disappointing, which is a fundamental flaw for a fantasy film. Aside from this the main problems are in the structure and tone; it seems to flirt the line between family friendly and dark and brooding without properly committing to either, which makes the 161 minute run time immensely painful. Poorly structured and incredibly ill-disciplined, not even Toby Jones and Alan Rickman can make me like this film more.
