A Review of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Harry Potter was forced to spend his summer holidays with his muggle relatives. But, then he gets a surprise visitor: Dobby the house-elf who warned him against returning to Hogwarts because he says terrible things are about to happen. Dobby tried everything to prevent Harry from going to Hogwarts but Harry ignores all of Dobby's warning. But, back at Hogwarts , Harry is suddenly hearing mysterious voices from inside the walls, as most of the muggle-born students are being attacked while a message was scrawled on the wall in blood: "The Chamber Of Secrets Has Been Opened. Enemies Of The Heir, Beware" .
Another second round! Haha. I just have to watch all of the Harry Potter series again when I noticed I did not write any review about them. This one is darker than the previous film but very engaging and exciting! It went by fast even though it was a long movie.
Great characters and cast. Of course, the cinematography and the special effects did great!
I want more! I want more! I want more!

New Characters: Dobby (house Elf), Moaning Myrtle, Tom Marvolo Riddle, Gilderoy Lockhart,

Quotes I Like:
Albus Dumbledore: It's not abilities that shows us what we are. It is our choices (about sorting hat saying he is for Slytherin but Harry choosing to be in Gryffindor.)
Ron: Why spiders? Why couldn't it be "follow the butterflies"?
Harry: You'd better clear off before my bones come back, Dobby, or else I might strangle you.
Dobby: [jumps off the bed] Dobby is used to death threats, sir. Dobby gets them five times a day at home.
