This film is definitely not my favourite of the potter films, but that isn't saying much, seeing as I love each and every one of them. I would definitely have to say that this film is the transition period from the old, childish Harry to the new, adult, more mature Harry. Like the second film, this film introduces a few new characters, but it still develops the old characters.      The acting, once again, is absolutely impeccable. This isn't only from our main cast, but …

John Williams' soundtrack is excellent and really sets the mood. …

The film is based on the third book series …
