MIX UP REVIEWS:
Ellie - ★★★★★
'I liked this movie as I found it funny and enjoyable, the movie in itself has a good storyline and I would totally recommend it for a family movie night.'
Stewart - ★★★★★
'A fantastic start to the series, really conveys the magic of the book very well and what a cast! It's maybe a little overlong but when there's so much to pack in from J.K. Rowling's story then it's forgivable. Great film.'
Mix Up Rating - ★★★★

For another children's book adaptation of wizards and magic try The Princess Bride.
