"- The chamber of secrets is opened again..." (C)

Remember how the scenes ended the first episode of fransz? Harry Potter turned to face the Hogwarts and watching the camera was saying how would be to all viewers: — "I'll be back!" And the young wizard kept his promise — already in the next year he continued her studies in the legendary school of witchcraft and wizardry. After the impressive box office "philosopher's Stone" (about a billion $ in 165 million budget), in the commercial potential of the "Secret Room" seems to be no doubt. The more so already who was interested started to read the book series by J. K. Rowling, and a new adaptation of the literary bestseller was perceived not as a new blockbuster, but good their favorite characters, like a trip to familiar to become expensive magical world. It is ensured all subsequent parts of the cycle crazy fees successful sale on video and under the auspices of a popular brand of stuff: from school supplies up to toys, chips and chewing gum. To everything else, according to explanation of the first parts of the "Harry Potter" was created by popular videogame in later adapted to different platforms. But probably most importantly for the writer the creators of films about Harry Potter must have felt a special pride — their feed the children of the world something incredible happened — they started with the greed to read books! He remember having a rest in summer camp, started flipping accidentally got me the eye book "Harry Potter and the goblet of Fire" (not that I did not read — I just has been "home" child and instead of climbing in the courts prefer to spend time with books, though long avoided the imposed fashion "Potteriana"), and sucked in the plot, despite that absolutely not been in the course of history. As it was a shame when me the middle of the book took away her owner, who it turns out lost it with a week ago...

However, when "Harry Potter" has become for Studio "Warner brothers" in a kind of Golden Calf that will generate massive profits, something different happened. Fans began to not only look forward to the appearance of the next film based on the book, but and began actively to criticize the subsequent film adaptation. After all, comparing any part of the movie — series a source, it is easy to see that the originals are always much more meaningful and interesting. However removing the films people do not guilty that the film adaptation is inferior to the novels by JK Rowling. The thing is the timing is designed for mainstream films. After all, "Harry Potter" are the order for two, while the kids barely incubates the standard for family movie of 1.5 hour sessions. It would be possible to do a three-hour movie, but it would become for child view initially entertaining film in the real test. With the other hand, to turn as successful on the big screen picture in TV series added episodes one does not going to. So they had to put up with that Hollywood could offer cool sight, addicted to all the while watching, and after a worthy to take a place in movies — as revised these movies many times. While all these spectacular blockbusters and lost books of the English writer. Which word — time of times became thicker. What did the subsequent film adaptation all the more difficult in terms of material for a scenario, which assumed much of the story to write for frame.

In the first film, Harry and his friends — Ron and Hermione were looking for the legendary magic item — the philosopher's Stone, with which the evil wizard Voldemort — De — mort had intended to regain its former power. In the second film inseparable friends already been trying to find in the Hogwarts castle a secret entrance in a Secret Room, in which according to legend dwells a terrible monster threatening to ruin the school of witchcraft and wizardry. To many old characters and added some new ones. So there are new teachers: Mrs. Stem (Miriam Margulies), a braggart and a poseur Zlatoust Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh), first on the screen appeared the proud father of Draco Malfoy — Lucius Malfoy (Jason Isaacs), the father of a large family of Weasley — Mr. Arthur (mark Williams), and also the parents of Hermione — Mr. Mrs. Granger (Tom knight and Heather Blasdel). Features highlight Christian Coulsen debuting on screen the way Tom riddle — the key character of this painting... has Increased in terms of the role of love in Harry Potter's Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright), so given more time buddies Malfoy — the fat of the Crab and Hoyle (in the plot, they form accept Ron and Harry went to exploration the territory of Slytherin), Oliver Voodoo (Sean Biggerstaff) — the captain of the Gryffindor team at the quidico and a number of other minor characters. Among the supernatural inhabitants of Hogwarts recharge — appears (or rather in this part of it is first mentioned) Ghost of a female toilet — Moaning Myrtle (Shirley Henderson). All who played the main characters and their teachers in the first film successfully migrated and second. Daniel Radcliffe to that time has become a real superstar, and received role  $ 3 million (and companions — Rupert green and Emma Watson — only 150 thousand)!

Much change among working on for the frame is not there was, however a sequel has been hired another operator. They became Roger Pratt — which will stay long in the franchise. Composer at the John Williams — and music creates in the frame is a real sense of magic! Labor worked on an adaptation of the novel by Stephen Clouse — we kind of like protected. The over him. the script is meaningful and one-piece, there are some — what are the reduction, but they criminal. So missed the time of the abduction of the Cabinet sinister Snape necessary ingredient for the reverse potion that prepared Hermione. In relations with the missing hosted by Harry the class planner, which friends had hoped to divert the attention of the Professor. So reduced communication Harry Tom Redlam through an enchanted diary, bringing all to a couple of scenes. Missing in film arranged Nearly Headless Nick and the celebration of its 500 years anniversary with the date of death, on which the dungeon was a variety of colorful ghosts. But in General, I said — nothing serious, impact on the subject of him cut not been. The final confrontation between Harry and a new realization of things — Who — Not — Call — even more impressive than the game magic chess and overcoming the three-headed dog in the first film... no Wonder 150 -ti million budget, filmed all the the same Chris Columbus "secret Room" gathered in the world has almost 900 million $!

P. S

In this movie, in last appeared on screen, outstanding English actor Richard Harris (again playing the role of Albus Dumbledore).

After the book of John. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone" became a worldwide bestseller, it became clear that the emergence of adaptation is only a matter of time. If the first three book and was like particle from fourth, the action has become more intense. The books have become longer, more detailed adaptation — wasn't easy. So cleverly, it was decided to split the seventh part of two films.

Fortunately for creators, the first two books were in General small and 2 hours approximately, could be squeezed out of the books the max. So it happened. Many people like the first part more. And not is devoid of truth. They more in they we perceive the art of Quidditch visited magic lessons from various teachers, get acquainted with the platform 9 and¾, and many other things the world of magic. Further adaptation require greater action, and the little things are not time.

Now we focus on the second part. The plot is exciting, and this part is less fairy-like "about the boy who lived". This part of the darker previous — over the school is really threatened, of course, there still not practical despair, like at the end of the sixth book.

In this part the viewer will have to meet with the heir to Salazar Slytherin who opened the chamber of secrets and releasing something terrible from there.

This is the part with the next summer at the Dursleys. It should be noted that the actors who played Dudley and Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, picked up very well. And any associated with them, the situation is not without of humor. In the first parts without the humor, of course, but, sorry the creators pay attention in the fourth and fifth parts. Jokes jokes, but still parts for the parts need to escalate the atmosphere.

Further, successfully escaped from "brother-cousins", Harry gets into the house of the family Weasley. Everything here is too loud — even the clock-navigators paid attention to. I would say except for Ron and Ginny, the actors were not chosen best — but can you do, to it can also be used.

The rest, on the role of the newly introduced characters were chosen good actors. Especially note Zlotousta Lockhart ' s, he was played perfectly. Turned narcissistic, cowardly crook — actually needed.

The ending was intriguing, the fight with Basilisk was inspiring. Well and the emergence of young, but already is building its plans Voland de mort, too, was struck by.

Of course, the book is much better. But as a standalone film, "Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets" looks great.

Decided to revise all the movie series "Harry Potter"written on them reviews. The sequel, as the original, I looked 2006. Then, this film to me very much, and left behind a lot of positive emotions. Now the same has already been having to revise the picture, I might say that — the Sequel I really liked it from disappointed that I still, I looked at left. But everything order.

Plot. The adventures of Harry Potter and his friends continue. At this time Harry, Ron and Hermione are trying to uncover all the secrets which conceals in itself the "secret room". To him also joined by house-elf Dobby and Ron's sister Ginny Weasley. Together friends have to go through a bunch of heavy and difficult obstacles that await them on the way to learn the innermost secrets of the "Secret room".

Special effects. The overall visualization of the film, as in the previous part of the franchise was on top. In the sequel was more than 20 quality made action scenes(which at least only is the final battle between Harry and a Basilisk) that can truly make me happy, and to make a huge amount of unforgettable impressions.

Artists. Main role for the three great actors, a very young age, have Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grintm and Emma Watson. This trio is once again able to please me with his acting, and observe their characters was one of pure joy. Also managed to remember the following actors:Tom Felton, Jason Isaacs, Robbie Coltrane, Kenneth Branagh, Alan Rickman, Richard Harris and Maggie Smith.

Soundtrack. Musical compositions that fell to share to write Oscar-winning composer John Williams("Schindler's List","Catch me if you can","Saving private Ryan","How to steal a million" and"Terminal")also I do not disappoint. The music was very spiritual, and in its own way memorable.

Bottom line:a fine continuation of the franchise about the adventures of a young wizard "Harry Potter",and really spectacular and very memorable film.

It be continued...
