In my opinion the worst film in the series. It is tired, long, and boring. The story could have been told in less time. I find it ridiculous that the second shortest book has the longest movie. As with the film before, it feels blocky. That is, it feels obstructed and overwrought. The production design is less ineffective but still unimaginative.
Most sequels suck, plain simple. I don't think that happens with the Harry Potter series. It may not have had the impact the first one did, but it has a very solid stotyline nonetheless and deserves love.
The second part of Harry Potter saga. Well, according to Wikipedia Chamber of Secrets is the longest Harry Potter movie based on the shortest Harry Potter novel. Maybe this fact explained a lot about why I feel the middle part of this movie is very muddled. I kinda feel bored while watching it. Honestly, it adds nothing. But don't worry, it's still a pretty good movie. Not to mention its Quidditch match sequences...
In my opinion the Harry Potter movies start well and get better with each subsequent movie. The second movie doesn't disappoint in terms of story but the greenness of the young actors can be a bit grating.
Rating - 3.5 / 5
With improved production values and better constructed narrative, 'Chamber of Secrets' is an improvement over its predecessor. We get to see more development amongst the characters while also being introduced to new interesting ones, and the story is more engaging - filled with high-risk situations and secrets (pun-intended) to be discovered.
