Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was way better than the first film in the series - less of the horrid adoptive family, a more coherent story, a better villain - but still suffers from the same problems as the first's bloated, faithful adaptation. It's much too long at 2 hours 40 minutes (are you KIDDING me?!!), and you can easily see where they could have trimmed at least 40 minutes. For example, there's yet another Quiddich scene that isn't really integrated into the film's plot. It's just there because it's synonymous with Harry Potter. And it's not the only culprit. Kenneth Branagh's poser of a wizard has some good moments, though by now, I'm pretty sick of Santa Claus/Bumblebore's wispy voice and preferential treatment of certain students; I know it's sad the original actor died before the third film, but bring on Michael Gambon, he won't be such a caricature. Nevertheless, I'm warming to the series now that the world has been set up, but I'm nowhere near a place where you could make me say it's a good movie.

neocowboy,

The Romans had a plumbing system. Not that far fetched.
And kind of an odd point since everyone there knows magic.

One of the lesser Harry Potter films in my opinion. It's no disaster or anything, but definitely not as good as the first.

In my opinion, there are almost no really good film in Harry Potter franchise (only Prisoner of Azkaban did it) especially with this one. The VFX looks so terrible especially with CGI Dobby, also for acting too. All three main children character can't act anymore.

Apparently Hogwarts was built 1000 years ago but Salazar Slytherin's entrance to the Chamber of Secrets is entirely constructed around indoor plumbing.

It is also mentioned that the Chamber of Secrets had been extensively searched for over the years, but at the end Fawkes flies them directly out of the cave system the chamber resides in via a gapping fissure in the grounds around Hogwarts.

And while I'm at it, was Lucius Malfoy really going to use the killing curse on Harry at Hogwarts in broad daylight? If so why did he take so long to do so? It seems to me that if you were in such a fit of rage that you would risk life in Azkaban you wouldn't slowly take 10 paces up to the victim, elaborately raising your wand menacingly and casually speaking a ranged curse that he can cast nonverbally. -_-

@richjenkins28

The Roman aqueduct based piping is not the same as modern indoor plumbing. Secondly, magic is not an all purpose excuse for plot holes or anachronisms. If anything it only poses more questions; why would wizards have plumbing - a muggle invention - when they could just cast aguamenti whenever they needed water? It's the same with mechanical locks. Why do they have them if they can be opened with a spell first years can cast?
