It was really nothing like Harry Potter. If they wouldn't of said the same spells and used a few of the words that were used in HP books/movies then it could have just been any movie about magic. This film didn't capture any of the spectacular things that Harry Potter was able to, and it just fell flat in some parts.

I like all the Potter films, but this one just didn't do it for me. It has its moments, but I found it kind of boring a lot of the time.

Pretty decent visual spectacle. Very definitely padded out though, a shorter film would've been better.

If you go into this leaving your HP expectations at the door and simply enjoy it for what it is, it's actually a fun movie. I liked it a lot more than I was expecting to.

I enjoyed this more than I was expecting too. A lot of my friends are hardcore HP fans and I hadn't heard anything particularly positive about this one. It was a little longer than it needed to be, but overall it was a good time.

It isn't as good as the Harry Potter movies, but the end result proves to be a welcome addition to the fantasy field.
