Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets 123movies Full movie online, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Tricks is extra satisfying and also much better made than its precursor. Paced well and also successfully stabilizing thrills and also laughs, Chamber feels much shorter than its intimidating 161 minute running time. The plot is periodically unclear-- reasons are left vague as to why the crooks have to go with the complicated plan that they do, however grumbling concerning that is the matching of quibbling with a Bond villain. Hogwarts looks a lot more like an actual area as well as less like a motion picture set this moment around. The characters and sets have a familiarity that helps make this film feel more natural than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The actors acquit themselves well, although only Kenneth Branagh as the vain, egotistical Gilderoy Lockhart truly shines. Branagh is obviously spoofing himself, and his joy is infectious. Although the film delivers the goods, disappointing neither fans of the books nor admirers of the first film, there is a certain restrictive feeling about the film that is hard to place. That Chris Columbus so closely follows the books seems to be a big reason why the series has succeeded (financially) as much as it has. However, there is an inevitability that disappoints ever so slightly. One has difficulty sensing much individuality in the film. Chamber of Secrets feels like a mission accomplished more than an inspired piece of storytelling, but it is a worthy mission and it is accomplished with skill.
