It is, at heart, a fantasy adventure film. The first one, is te best one, in my view. Harry is an orphan, who discovers at the age of eleven that he is a wizard, while living with ordinary, non-magical people. Children, with similar skills, like Harry are invited to become students at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizadry, in which most of the events of the novel take place. Harry develops through his adolecence, how to overcome the problems that he faces. Moreover, there are magical, social and emotional challenges such as friendships and exams. There have been seven novels all in all, all of which have become films and each of them describes some of Harry's challenges amd his new life in the school.
Directed by David Heymann, it captured the atmosphere of a magical world. It has a quality cast with Daniel Radcliffe, as the main hero. He gives a spellbinding performance as Harry the main character. The film , is in general entralling, easy to follow and straightforward. It is vivid and exciting.
Film viewers will be excited by the film but the readers may feel disappointed. The book is long and rich in details and events. Unfortunately only a few of which are portrayed in the film and a vast number of cuts have been made, on the other hand the description in the film completely squares this with the one in the book.Taking everything into account, I would have no hesitation on recommneding this film , as it has an imaginative vision of another magical world.
