This film features scary creatures, magic, 11-year-olds, and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a red-blooded adventure movie, dripping with atmosphere, filled with the gruesome and the sublime, and surprisingly faithful to the novel.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“The film is more than two hours long, yet it flashes past in delicious form, this minute frightening, that moment comic, this minute thunderous, magical and wizardly, that moment human and reeling with feeling. A beautiful mobilisation of youthful imaginings, Harry Potter the movie is an instant classic: for a whole generation its brilliance will seem central, a gleeful preponderance of wonder in a broken world.” -Andrew O’Hagan, The Telegraph
