Harry Potter 3 is really a good time at the movies, but just not as great till you read the book. The scenarios are dark, we have more mystery, more tension and even more surprises during this film than the other Harry Potters.
But I found that "Prisoner of Azkaban" does not live up to the book in a number of ways, but that comparison may not be fair, as many films cannot address all the material in a book's pages and thus fall short. It felt rushed. Cuts between scenes were often harsh. The movie takes significant leaps in time that don't feel that way due to quick edits. Film version of Draco Malfoy is a wimp. He comes off as much more of a villain in the book. Maybe this is due to the shortcomings of Felton as an actor, but I blame it on the script and the direction.

Not a book reader, but still found this charming and full of twists. The first movie that transitions the characters away from childhood into more thoughtful teenage years. Arguably the best of the series.

Review from December 2, 2020:
I love this movie so much. Absolutely love the introduction of both Sirius Black and Remus Lupin to the franchise as well as the protective role that Snape begins to take over Harry and his friends.
Started the trend of adding things that don’t contribute anything to the story and take up valuable minutes when the books began getting longer and could have used that time more wisely.
So much is missed from the books once again 😅😑 you'll enjoy this film if you follow the story and like swords and sorcery things. If it's not a good film I highly recommend the books. You can find them in shops, online and through apps such as audible or anything else you can find. ⚠️ warning ⚠️ don't get connected to characters to deeply

Didn't like it on my first viewing as I was a kid. But now It's my favourite film of the franchise. This is the film where things start getting darker and the tone gets serious. The story was great; the acting by the three leads improved a lot here; there was enough humour; a great and better Dumbledore and Black🖤

My favourite of all the Harry Potter movies. Can’t pinpoint why, but it’s something about this one that stands out from the others
Harry Potter is the world where everyone like to live. There will not be any haters for these Series. The movie series to be watched and experienced before the age of 18 by everyone. It is the world of Happiness and peaceful musics.
As a film, great. Compared to the book? Lots is lost. But Alfonso Cuaron's darker (Tim Burton-esque) take on helming a Harry Potter film is brilliant. Excellent cast, solid plot
This is when the films get serious and the tone for the entire series shifts darker, and better.
Not my favourite - tones not right for me
Also bitte. Es ist Harry Potter. HARRY POTTER. Das ist eine 12/10!
