Fresh: Like the first two movies, this is loaded with computer-generated imagery, but for the first time there's a sense of dramatic proportion balancing the spectacle and the story line.-J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, September 08, 2010
Fresh: Ultimately the success of the film lies in the characters, and the emotions that they trigger in us.-Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile, October 18, 2008
Fresh: Compared to its predecessors, this is a more wintry, thoughtful and rewarding movie.-Wally Hammond, Time Out, June 24, 2006
Fresh: This is a luminous movie -- luminous, imaginative and affecting. For Harry Potter, at least, the third time is the charm.-Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, July 21, 2005
It is a very good movie
Reviewer: Verlenee Review refers to DVD version
Now have the Ultimate Edition on pre-order. See the first two to decide what to purchase (love and own them both) BUY the third. All the players are in top form, especially Dan who has come into his own now. Non-stop adventure. Cuaron accomplished wonders. Gary Oldman is incredible as Azkaban-escaped prisoner (NOT ex-con) Sirius Black. Brilliant !
