Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the first movie from the series of Harry Potter based on the novels written by J.K. Rowling that was released in 2001. This is where Harry Potter’s life begins. Harry Potter is a half-blood wizard and the only son of James Potter and Lily Potter. He’s a survivor of the Killing Curse, as Lord Voldemort tried to murder him when he was a child. There’s lightning-shaped scar on his forehead as a memento of the attack. Harry became an orphan after losing his parents and was taken in by his Muggle relatives known as the Dursleys, his only relatives from his mother’s side of the family.  At the age of eleven, Harry started attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was placed in the Gryffindor house by the sorting Hat. While in school he became friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the best book-to-movie adaptation that I’ve ever seen. The sets were stunning – the actors were first rate – the effects were breathtaking. The film flowed quite smoothly in its transition from page to screen, never tripping on the awkward conventions that other books on film have struggled with. This movie is really filled with a lot of what was in the books, magic! And who says that there is no such thing as magic?! There is to such a thing as magic, maybe not in the real world but in this movie and all of the rest of the Harry Potter movies, there is magic, magic is great, it can be fun, useful, deadly, exciting, and most of all, it can at times be very realistic looking, I know that a lot of the spells that I have seen in other movies have looked very realistic, and other ones that I have seen have really just cooled look.

Harry ‘s character is projected to be so adventures, exciting, and interesting, Ron’s character is projected to be very funny and outgoing, and Hermione’s character is projected to be smart, funny, and understanding. I believe that all three of the main characters were well played by Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. Overall I would give the movie an off the chart rating.
