  Lizo reviews COS: 'Number one for kids'
Updated 08 November 2002, 17.46
Lizo went to see the new Potter film
By Lizo Mzimba
CBBC Newsround

The first movie was the biggest film of last year, so this one has a lot to live up to. So does it deliver? The answer's a definite yes.

Everything has moved up a step from Philosopher's Stone - the children's performances, the action and crucially the special effects.

Fantastic effects

The storyline follows Harry at school in his second year, where something strange and sinister is stalking the halls of Hogwarts, attacking students so that it seems they've been turned to stone.

Harry Potter
There are more set pieces in this movie - an extended Quidditch chase with the rogue bludger, the spiders in the Forbidden Forest and the Chamber of Secrets itself. And the effects in each are superb.

Surprise for fans

As ever, a few bits of the book have had to be taken out to fit it all into one movie - Mr Borgin in Borgin & Burkes and the Deathday Party. But there are one or two surprises for Potter fanatics (stay until the very end of the end credits).

There's stiff competition coming up. But while it might lack the huge mythical depth of Lord of the Rings, and the non stop exotic action of Bond, Chamber of Secrets should still be the number one kids choice for 2002.
