"[Chris] Columbus’ second alchemical movie ups the thrill quotient to satisfy the faithful." – Wally Hammond, Time Out
Year Two. In the second film adaptation of J. K. Rowling’s fantasy novels, Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts after a dreary summer at home only to find things are amiss: students are being turned stone, a strange voice is following him around the school, and threats are written in blood on the walls. Rumors abound that a deadly creature has been loosed from the Chamber of Secrets. It’s up to Harry, with the aid of a mysterious book and best friends Hermione and Ron, to solve the mystery and prevent the school from closing down. This new chapter featured Kenneth Branagh as Professor Gilderoy Lockhart and Richard Harris’ final performance as Albus Dumbledore, who passed away a month before the film’s release.
