Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

Year Three starts with Harry running away from home after accidentally inflating his horrible Aunt Marge. Things only get worse from that point on – with Dementors making him relive his worse memories, and escaped prisoner Sirius Black trying to get to him, Harry isn’t having a particularly good time of things.

Happily, the film’s young leads are up to this delicate task. Daniel Radcliffe may not be quite ready for Hamlet yet, but he carries off an air of worried introspection with assurance.” – Telegraph

Radcliffe comes into his own as Harry, giving the role scrappy humor and surprising depth.” – Rolling Stone

The plot focuses on Harry, played with an affable intelligence by Daniel Radcliffe, and the menacing presence of prison escapee Sirius Black (Gary Oldman). Emma Watson’s Hermione is spunkier, and all three young wizards have become more facile actors.” – USA Today

Radcliffe, who played Potter so dutifully in the first two movies, seems to have come into his own. He appears to be on the cusp of gangliness and hormones, and this is the movie where he transitions into an actor’s body. This Harry is often furious and pained. In the opening scene, the boy comes close to a nuclear meltdown, shivering as he turns his rude Aunt Marge (Pam Ferris) into a blimp at the dinner table. As she swells and sails into the stratosphere, Harry stands back helpless with anger and awe. He could be Sissy Spacek’s Carrie at the end of the prom.” – Boston.com
