Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone (2001)

Posted 19/02/2007 by Edward Davies in Adventure

Starring : Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Richard Harris, Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, Ian Hart
Director : Chris Columbus
Running Time : 147 mins

Eleven-year-old Harry Potter (Radcliffe) discovers that he is a wizard and is rescued from his Uncle and Auntie and sent to Hogwarts school of magic. Once there he discovers he is considered to be very important in wizarding circles as he was the only person to survive an attack from the evil Lord Voldermort as a baby, but this revelation doesn’t necessarily make him any instant friends!

An enjoyable adaptation of the first Harry Potter novel, definitely aimed at children more than anyone else as the makers don’t seem too sure about who their target audience is. Despite this, there is still a lot to enjoy, and this truly did pave the way for the spectacular sequels.

Verdict : 7/10
