Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second installment in the Harry Potter movie series. It is based off of the J.K.Rowling book of the same title. Harry is getting ready to start his second year and Hogworts school of witchcraft and wizardry and things are once again going wrong. A house elf is trying to keep Harry from returning to the school saying that he knows that Harry is in danger and he is only trying to protect him. After many attempts to keep Harry from returning to school Harry eventually does return to Hogworts. After a few weeks of school strange voices begin to be heard but Harry seems to be the only one who hears them. Then the students start to become petrified. Something is turning them as stiff as stone. When a message written in blood appears on the wall in the castle declaring that the heir of Slithorin has returned and opened the Chamber of Secrets, faculty become very alarmed. Through research, Harry, Hermione and Ron start to learn more about the Chamber of Secrets and try to figure out who at Hogworts is the heir of Slithorin. More becomes clear when a diary shows up that once belonged to a Hogworts student by the name of Tom Riddle. The diary helps Harry in finding the way to the Chamber of Secrets and once there Harry runs into a creature far larger then he's ever encountered before. Also finding Tom Riddles connection with the Chamber of Secrets, the creature and Lord Voldemort.
This second installment to the Harry Potter Films is just as good and well made as the first film. Even though the films leave a lot of info out that is in the books they still leave enough in that even if you have never read the Harry Potter series, you will still understand what is going on without much confusion. The video quality is a little rough since the film was made in 2002. Playing the DVD on a Blu-Ray playing shows the fussiness in the video quality. The audio is pretty well done. The Computer graffics are amazing, again they lack a little due to video quality, especially when viewed on a Blu-Ray player. This does not take away from the enjoyment of the film in any way though.
