Title:Harry Potter | Rating:4/5 | Release Date:11/16/2001
Harry Potter And The Socerer's Stone is an adaptation of the first of J.K. Rowling’s popular children’s novels about Harry Potter. Harry Potter is a boy who learns on his eleventh birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses unique magical powers of his own. He is summoned from his life as an unwanted child to become a student at Hogwarts, an English boarding school for wizards. There, he meets several friends who become his closest allies and help him discover the truth about his parents mysterious deaths at the hands of a powerful adversary.
Magnificent computer imaging is used in the movie to create a spectacular speacial effect. Like "The Wizard of Oz," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Star Wars" and "E.T.," it isn't just a movie but a world with its own magical rules. This isn't just a movie for kids who read the book, it is movie for the whole family to enjoy. I highly recommend seeing this future classic.
