Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was once again directed by Chris Columbus this was the last film that he made in this series.  It is scored once again by the amazing John Williams with his great Harry Potter theme.  In Chamber of Secrets, we already know Hogwarts, the principal characters and Harry's horrible Aunt and Uncle.  So it doesn't have to set any of that up and gets you right into the story.  This film set up a very compelling mystery what is the Chamber of Secrets. Kids at Hogwarts are being petrified. Cryptic messages written in blood are found on the walls.    This film also introduces as to the character Dobby when you first see him you think he is just going to be the comic relief, but he becomes a character that you feel bad for once you see what is going on behind the scenes with Draco's father who is somehow even worse than his son.  Along with the mystery involving the Chamber of Secrets we also learn a little more about Harry Potter he can speak in Parseltongue he can talk to snakes.  That sets up more compelling things to make us curious about this character.  One of my favorite parts of this movie is the Dueling Club scene when Harry and Draco face off in a wand battle.   This movie is a bit darker and slightly scarier than the first. With Harry and Ron going into the forest. Also once we get to the big finale in which Harry finds out that Tom Riddle is not a very good person as well as his battle with the Basilisk.   Throughout this entire film, these three kids are just so great together they bring a giant smile to your face. I love seeing the three of them grow and mature and that is a rare thing in films to have this many movies in which you can watch these characters grow up in front of you.  5 out of 5 stars for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I hope you enjoyed my review.
