The additional supporting cast includes John Cleese Nearly Headless Nick , Warwick Davis Professor Flitwick , Julie Walters Mrs. A film in which adults and children alike will rejoice, because it speaks to the heart in a universal language of life, love, experience and imagination; a film that states unequivocally that magic exists-- as long as there's a single child with a single dream somewhere in the world, and real wizards like J. He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted. What we have here is a serviceable dramatization of a wonderful children's series, but it doesn't entirely succeed in standing on its own. And much of what makes the Harry Potter phenomenon unique is that it is the first time in ages that a children's book, without a movie accompanying it, has generated this much popularity.
For instance, the lower-tech-looking Sorting Hat scene is one of the most delightful of them all. Two and a half hours is not long to explore a wonderful, magical world. විශේෂයෙන් ළමයින් අරමුණුකොට කියවුන මේ කතාව අපි කව්රුත් දන්න මායා ලොකය ගැනයි. I look forward to watching it again and again. From the bustling wizard street Diagon Alley to the magnificently gothic Hogwarts School to the dark and misty Forbidden Forest, the film breaks new ground in imaginative production design.
The Quidditch scene is the most demanding of them all; while the sequence is action-packed and good-looking, disappointingly, it's not a total success. There are omissions and there are changes. They are true fans of the story, they are the right people for the job, it all bodes very well for the second film. But these are exceptions; in my experience, most children's movies reveal their weaknesses in how they diverge from the books upon which they're based. Harry's caretaker Uncle Vernon, a prominent character in the book, is given less attention in the movie than some of the bit characters. The professors are uniformly excellent, though Richard Harris' Dumbledore comes off as disappointingly flat until the end. Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school.
ඒකට තෝරාගනිපු කාලෙත් මල් හතයි. Harry's caretaker Uncle Vernon, a prominent character in the book, is given less attention in the movie than some of the bit characters. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Rubeus Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. It's fairly obvious that things are shot in many disparate locations, rather than one big Hogwarts School near Hogsmeade. I don't have a single complaint about any of the actors, who successfully bring to life, with the aid of costume design and special effects, the many colorful characters from the book.
They are true fans of the story, they are the right people for the job, it all bodes very well for the second film. As the strict but just Professor McGonagall, Oscar winner Maggie Smith seems born to play the role - and is ready for another Oscar. Its lack of fullness, and its dependence on the book, might actually increase the popularity and endurance of Rowling's series by making those who see the film yearn for more, which they can get from the real thing. And that about sums up what kind of a job this young man does here. David Bradley has a vicious Argus Filch; John Hurt's Ollivander is an eccentric treat, giving a wonderful introduction to the Wizarding World. Don't expect miracles and you'll love it.
The stills are wonderful, but the fastest animation is restricted by the limitations of real-world technology. My favorite character, the giant Hagrid, is played by Robbie Coltrane, and I say with no exaggeration that he is exactly how I imagined him while reading the book. More than rising to the occasion and with some magic of his own-- and a lot of help from an extraordinarily talented cast and crew-- Columbus has delivered a film that is not only true to the story, but true to the very spirit that makes Harry Potter so special. නියමයි කොල්ලනේ, පොඩ්ඩො විතරක් නෙමේ අපිත් බලාගෙන ඉන්නවා දිගටම දෙනකම්, ඉවරයක් වෙන්ඩම. It's as if they took the image in my mind and transferred it to the screen. But much is left out.
The way magic is treated in her books, not as something medieval but as very similar to the way our own contemporary world works, is a large part of their charm. According to an article I read a year ago, the universe of Harry Potter has become as real in the minds of youngsters and adults as that of a popular movie series like Star Wars. The score is absolutely wonderful. And the spunky Watson adds some real sparkle to the film as Hermione, the one with the sense of urgency and the wherewithal to get things done; a real role model for young girls everywhere. The feel of the whole movie is everything fans could have hoped for. Furthermore, the directors have bowed to the inevitable temptation to show us things that cannot be communicated so effectively in a book.
I have seen it several times and each time I am enchanted by the characters and magic. Not knowing exactly what's coming next is a good thing! Therefore, it will be very hard for any film based upon it to compete with it. Not knowing exactly what's coming next is a good thing! The special effects are absolutely beyond astounding, and Columbus, with a keen eye for detail and without missing a beat, keeps it all on track and moving right along at a pace and with a sense of timing that makes this an absorbing, thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Therefore, it will be very hard for any film based upon it to compete with it. After thinking about it, it does seem like parts of the movie fail to convey a sense of urgency.
