Niamh (Age 9) - ★★★★★

'I love the movie so much it was really good. I loved how Harry was able to see and save Mr Weasley before he died, I am glad he did not die.

I was so mad when Harry got expelled from Hogwarts but I’m so glad he didn’t get expelled from Hogwarts in the end. I was shocked when Sirius died.

I enjoyed it but it didn’t put as much detail as the Book so I enjoyed the book the best I give it five stars'

Stewart - ★★★★★

'As always adding the new cast members is a complete bonus with the likes of Imelda Staunton and Helena Bonham Carter. The movie is one of the shortest in the series despite being the biggest book. The last half hour contains some of the best moments of the entire HP series. Brilliant'

The whole of the Harry Potter series is fantastic and always worth a re-watch.

Michael Gambon, Timothy Spall and Helena Bonham Carter are Harry Potter series regulars and they all give terrific performances in the historical drama The King's Speech.

For other brilliant action packed family films check out Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Helena Bonham Carter is also excellent in the recent, One Life.
