Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Welcome to Hogwartz

The popular children book series finally makes it's big screen debut. The film is based off the popular Harry Potter book series which tells a story about a young boy, Harry Potter, whom lives in a neglected home, in London, until one day he discovers that he's a son of a great wizard. Upon this discovery, Harry is escorted, by a giant named Hagrid, to Hogwartz Wizard School to learn how to hone his powers. However, all is not well when Harry soon discovers that his parent's murderer is after him, so it's up to Harry and his pals to stop the murderer. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with this film. I'm sure if I was younger, then I would've been totally stoked over this movie. However, that's not to say that this is a bad film to watch. The special effects were good as one would expect but after seeing so many other films redefine the standard of special effects, in movies, like "Independence Day", "Star Wars" prequels, and so on, Harry Potter isn't going to change the standard. The story is fairly decent with a surprise twist at the end. Overall, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" isn't the best family film out there, but it's worth a rental.
