Cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious elf comes to warn Harry Potter at the start of the second year of his amazing journey into the world of wizardry. This year at Hogwarts, spiders talk, letters scold and Harry's own unsettling ability to speak to snakes turns his friends against him. From dueling clubs to rogue Bludgers, it's a year of adventure and danger when bloody writing on a wall announces: The Chamber of Secrets has been opened. To save Hogwarts will require all of Harry, Ron and Hermione's magical abilities and courage.

Ginny divulge
Chamber dislodge
secrets turn to memory
Heir or Harry.
Dobby dodge, Willow whomp, Aragog lost to the flying car;
Teachers coax students mingling with ghosts in charm;
Fawkes fight the basilisk, all stars
dimmed by Lockhart.

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.

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.

Once again, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets magnificently brought the book to life! The acting was fantastic, the special effects were amazing, and the story line is like no other! There are some new characters introduced, which you’ll fall in love with! Every little detail of the movie flawlessly interweaves into a captivating plot, filled with mystery, action, and adventure! The resolution to each problem is so clever and developed, and keeps you eager and engaged throughout the entire film. I definitely recommend this movie, along with the rest of the franchise! This movie has everything that you would want in a film! 5/5

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.

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.

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.

A mysterious elf tells Harry to expect trouble during his second year at Hogwarts, but nothing can prepare him for trees that fight back, flying cars, spiders that talk and deadly warnings written in blood on the walls of the school.
