Synopsis: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the first film in the Harry Potter series based on the novels by J.K. Rowling. It is a tale of an seemingly ordinary 11 year old boy who is to become a wizard.
Review: Fun movie. Defiantly for kids. there is a lot of crazy stuff in this film. Yes, this film should keep the kids staring at the TV screen, so if you’re a parent and you want your kids to be quite for about two hours, maybe this could work? Its one of those adventure films about some kids running amuck finding trouble and thinking that its up to them to save the day.
There is a whole story line about Snape? Voldemort? A large hairy guy that looks like a cave man? Wizard stuff? Unicorns? Philosophers stone? A bleach blond trouble maker boy? Harry goes off to this wizard school Hogwarts (weird name, really). He learns how to wave a stick which does magic (strangely rendered CGI that moves at a different frame rate from the live action actors) I am reminded of Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Some guy goes off to magic school and becomes some kind of savior. Who would win in a magic battle? Harry potter at his best in the J.K. Rowling series are Dr. Strange with his time powers? Never mind.
Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) makes friends with Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint). Hermione the smart one, Ron the brave one, and himself the hero train to be wizards and fight for good. Harry heeds the advice of Dumbledore and acts on his wisdom.
Emma Watson really does know how to give some one the crazy eyes! Ha ha! All of the actors do well for their ages. They are all very talented actors really. The film is not bad, its just for a younger audience.
