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
The film, while slavishly faithful, contains little innovative juice outside of its visual richness.
A red-blooded adventure movie, dripping with atmosphere, filled with the gruesome and the sublime, and surprisingly faithful to the novel.
If the movie doesn't ultimately transport us to places The Wizard of Oz once took us, that may be partly because The Sorcerer's Stone is just the first chapter, with more magic waiting to be parceled out in the coming years.
