Which is why the fantasy franchise is worth checking out
The fact that “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” sticks so meticulously to Rowling’s novel is thanks to the say that the author has given herself for the film adaptations. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” may not yet consistently advance the story about the ambitious sorcerer’s apprentice in the film adaptation, but with the introduction of the characters it offers a careful introduction to the fairytale world – and immediately makes you want more. Especially since it is for the full Production cost of $125 million there is also a bombastic firework of effects to marvel at, which is not only visually convincing in the legendary Quidditch competition. In addition, the young stars around Daniel Radcliffe also show that they can easily hold their own alongside long-established greats such as John Hurt, Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith. The fact that the film adaptation of the novel exudes British charm through and through, despite all its fantasy character, is also due to Joanne K. Rowling – because she insisted on engaging an all-British cast.
