Washington Post
It's not perfect, or even close, but it delivers on the promise of J.K. Rowling's novels to a far greater extent. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Put delicately, this is one long sit, made all the more so by a turgid story, a dour visual palette and uninspiring action. 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. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
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. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
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. Full Review
