ig_____or's rating of the film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Highly regarded as "the best" film of the franchise, Azkaban pleases the eye and the mind with a much grimmer tone than its predecessors, a smart time-travel plot and important revelations from the past. Perhaps its most successful achievement is the cruel realisation that the kids are no longer kids, and that times are darker... Voldemort's absence, however, took away some of the gravitas present on other films.
