This movie is edited so much that the only thing left is the story line. They skip parts that build charecter development. That makes the harry potter a classic this film was butchered to the point it sucks DO NOT BUY get it on dvd orherwise you miss out on a lot pluss if you have kids that love the movies they complain so much about missing content you need to buy aspirin with this version.
I bought this because I know digital is the future and I'm tired of storing DVD's. I'm also tired of people 'borrowing' them and they come back damaged causing me to buy new ones. I don't like the fact that I can't get the last two and keep them on Amazon. Something about them not being available after 12-29-11. The movie studio is creating artificial scarcity which will cause people to stop watching them or pirate them. I stopped consuming anything Disney for this reason.
Characters are pretty deadpan, not a lot of depth or character development. Like an action movie that has shooting and people trying to kill each other except they are using wands and "magic" but it's not very magical feeling- maybe it was better in the theaters.

If you have not seen or read the Harry Potter series of films and books then please do. Honestly I do not go for all of the hype so I watched the films and started reading the first book for myself just recently and I am so glad that I did!
There is such heart, warmth, humor and life lessons to be learned weather you are 8 or 80.
