Storyline

This is the tale of Harry Potter, an ordinary 11-year-old boy serving as a sort of slave for his aunt and uncle who learns that he is actually a wizard and has been invited to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Rubeus Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted. Written by Carly

Goofs

(At around 1h 6 mins) Wood tells Harry that, if he catches the Golden Snitch "... the game is over" and "...we win." This is only partly true. Catching the snitch will end the game, but the team with the most points at that time is still the victor, regardless of who catches the snitch. See more »

Crazy Credits

The actors who played the Slytherin Quidditch team are listed as the wrong roles. The role of Captain Marcus Flint is played by Jamie Yeates but credited to Will Theakston. In turn, Will Theakston plays Seeker Terrence Higgs; this role is credited to Scot Fearn, who plays Chaser Adrian Pucey. Pucey is credited as David Holmes, who actually played a Slytherin Beater and was Daniel Radcliffe's stunt double. This is rectified in the credits of the sequel, Chamber of Secrets, with the exception of Higgs, who is replaced by Draco Malfoy as Seeker. See more »

It was brilliant!
10 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

When I knew the film was being made, I thought how could they make a film that would be up to the standard of such a perfect book. But they did! Sure they missed bits out but they captured the essence of the book brilliantly. One member of the cast was mis-cast for me but my children disagreed.I even found myself believing they were flying and not wondering "how are they doing that?" So 10 out 10 Warner Brothers. Bring on the next one!
