Atom User Reviews for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
best movie I've seen since it originally came out back in the day
Potter-philes are sure to get what they want -- if what they want is, in fact, an exacting version of J.K. Rowling's charming children's fantasy. If it's enchantment they are after, that's quite another matter.
It’s still a very entertaining and spectacular movie, with a rush of nostalgia to go alongside the exhilaration of fun.
The film, while slavishly faithful, contains little innovative juice outside of its visual richness.
