Is The Plot Interesting?

This plot is one of the most well thought out and planned plots I have ever seen. It has a very clear structure and brilliantly woven in sub-plots that tie in really well with the main storyline.

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets 1

Is The Acting Good?

You can tell that everyone on set has become more comfortable with each other and this is clear through their performances. They understand their characters a lot more than the first one as well.

Is The Directing Good?

The directing is good but not amazing. Chris Columbus has directed one of these movies before so you kind of know how he’s going to approach it and he does exactly what you’re expecting.

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets 2

Is The Cinematography Good?

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, in terms of cinematography, is just the same as Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone. There really isn’t any major developments in this area.

Is It Worth Watching?

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets is a well thought out movie with good performances. The cinematography and directing haven’t changed very much from the first movie but does it make a difference? No! You should definitely give it a watch.
