    Soars gloriously into fluency and magic.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    The Prisoner of Azkaban is to Harry Potter what that other No. 3, "Goldfinger," was to James Bond: the movie that takes the invention and gamesmanship of the series to a whole new giddy peak.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A different kind of Harry Potter movie, a better kind... It's where this fantasy series has wanted to go all along.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    One of the greatest fantasy films of all time. Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The most powerfully entrancing children's film in years. Of course, a true kid's classic is just as magical for adults.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Potter 3 is, in its heart of hearts, a teenage angst movie...Cuaron has done a masterful job of bringing off this shift in the Potter paradigm without disrupting any disruption in the established style of the series and without any pandering concessions to the teen-movie genre.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    A deeper, darker, visually arresting and more emotionally satisfying adaptation of the J.K. Rowling literary phenomenon, achieving the neat trick of remaining faithful to the spirit of the book while at the same time being true to its cinematic self.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    The best of the Harry Potter films so far, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is also hands down the scariest, and the deepest.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Like the first two movies, this is loaded with computer-generated imagery, but for the first time there's a sense of dramatic proportion balancing the spectacle and the story line.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Not only is this dazzler by far the best and most thrilling of the three Harry Potter movies to date, it's a film that can stand on its own even if you never heard of author J.K. Rowling and her young wizard hero.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Is Prisoner of Azkaban as good as the first two films? Not quite. It doesn't have that sense of joyously leaping through a clockwork plot, and it needs to explain more than it should. But the world of Harry Potter remains delightful, amusing and sophisticated.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mark Caro

    With Cuaron leading the way, Harry has burst from the printed page to soar on-screen.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    An entrancing experience for Potter fans. It's a carefully crafted, dreamy immersion in a world that feels snugly familiar even when evil intrudes.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    This movie belongs to its young stars, who have grown immensely as actors since they were first ideally cast by Chris Columbus, the hack who directed the first two movies.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Who would think Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban could be an art film? Thanks to director Alfonso Cuaron, a dazzling storyteller with a keen eye for whimsical detail, the third film in the Potter franchise is a visual delight.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    [Cuaron]'s a visionary and crafty storyteller who rewards your patience, not with twists in the plot, though the movie has its share, but with pure feeling. Deploying wit, grace, and artistry, he's whisked a kid flick into adolescence.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    In an era when most scripts are written by committees of monkeys, hearing one man's intelligent voice is an almost forgotten pleasure.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Shot in spooky gradations of silver and shadow, The Prisoner of Azkaban is the first movie in the series with fear and wonder in its bones, and genuine fun, too.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Karen Karbo

    Much has been made about the fact that the world's most popular fictional children are growing up and straight into that horror-filled no man's land of the human life span, puberty.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    In the Harry Potter film series thus far, The Sorcerer's Stone remains the strongest, perhaps because the first look at any rich new world is almost always going to be more groundbreaking than its sequels. But Prisoner of Azkaban is a worthy and stylistically different follow-up, where Chamber of Secrets often felt like an unimaginative retread.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Azkaban breaks free of all these shackles in its final hour. Working with the persuasive Thewlis and Oldman, able to focus his gifts on what's distinctive, dramatic and surprising about the story, Cuarón creates on screen the heartfelt magic that has enthralled so many on the page.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This film may disappoint some dogmatic Old Hogwartsians: a few plot points have been sacrificed, and Mr. Cuarón does not seem to care much for Quidditch. But it more than compensates for these lapses with its emotional force and visual panache.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sean Smith

    The result is a film that's really moving--and really moves.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    In Cuarón's hands, the world of Harry Potter doesn't feel like a synthetic movie theme park anymore. It's almost real, Hogwarts and all.

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Enjoy the savory witches' brew that Cuaron has cooked up in his Harry pot. For on its own terms, this one is truly wizard.

    Time Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    It helps that J.K. Rowling’s third book in the series is full of spooky stuff that translates beautifully to screen.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    From its restlessly moving camera work to its heartfelt acting by a splendid cast, "Azkaban" is a horror movie for mature kids.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Here, finally, is a Harry Potter picture that lives up to its potential -- that, plainly, LIVES.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    In the end, Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban offers what neither of its predecessors, for all their wand-waving and witch-brooms, had: real magic.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Although Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban stands well enough on its own, it has a "middle chapter" feeling. In other words, there's no real beginning or ending. Little is resolved and the film's climax is low-key.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    With shades of Carrie, Harry's magical powers and adolescent angst make a combustible fusion, taking on frightening, vengeful implications that Cuarón honors by refusing to airbrush the shadowy regions of fantasy.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    A mild upkick in pacing and texture can be credited to director Alfonso Cuarón (more Little Princess than Y Tu Mamá), who avoids Chris Columbus's mastodon-like setups and knows a bit more about whipping up atmospherics.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Visually dazzling and considerably darker than the prior incarnations, the story suffers from a slightly disjointed feel that will prove less accessible to those not intimately familiar with every corner of author J.K. Rowling's world.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nicole Arthur

    It's not perfect, or even close, but it delivers on the promise of J.K. Rowling's novels to a far greater extent.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    From my doddering perspective - rheumy with a view - Volume 3 puts plenty of cinema into the picture but leeches all the charm out of the tale.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Cuaron lets his enthusiasms show.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Colin Kennedy

    Azkaban contains both the longest denouement and the most rousing finish of any of the books, and Cuarón wisely whips through the 'ah-hahs' so that the clever climax, complete with the series' best SFX, can enjoy its moment in the moonlight.

    Empire Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    If my moviegoing experience was magical in any way, it was only in that I once or twice nodded off for a spell.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Put delicately, this is one long sit, made all the more so by a turgid story, a dour visual palette and uninspiring action.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The right word for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is wondersful -- as in full of wonders, great and small.
