While most kids are off enjoying their summer vacation, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is forced to stay with the Dursleys – relatives who detest him. Aunt Petunia (Fiona Shaw), Uncle Vernon (Richard Griffiths) and his spoiled cousin Dudley (Harry Melling) are miserable company, and things deteriorate when the dreadful Aunt Marge (Pam Ferris) comes to visit.
Unable to control (or contain) his powers of wizardry all summer, Harry accidentally causes Aunt Marge to inflate like a monstrous balloon and drift up to the ceiling! To avoid inevitable punishment from his mean aunt and uncle, Harry packs up his trunk and takes off into the night with his owl Hedwig in tow.
After spending the remainder of the holidays at a friendly inn called the Leaky Cauldron, Harry returns to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin third year, but something wicked this way comes…
The dark and deadly Sirius Black has escaped from Azkaban Prison and is pursuing Harry Potter … but why? With a little help from best friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), Harry attempts to unravel yet another spell-binding magical mystery.
In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and his friends Ron and Hermione return as teenagers to Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their third year of study, where they delve into the mystery surrounding an escaped prisoner who seems to pose a dangerous threat to Harry.

Harry Potter and his friends are now in their thrid year at Hogwarts a school of witchcraft and wizardry. With the escaped murderer; Sirius Black on the loose., everone's lives in danger; particularly Harry's or so everyone believes. It is said thst Sirius who used to be James Potter's best friend betrayed them to Voldemort. A much darker film than the previous two, Hermione also begins to instill her strong side not just her smarts.
It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts. But as soon as after he left the Dursleys and set off for a new year at school, catching up with Ron and Hermione again, things were not as smooth-sailing as it seemed to be.
The wizarding world is abuzz with the news that Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) has escaped from Azkaban. Many were convinced that Black was indirectly the reason why Harry's parents died 12 years ago. As a result of Black's escape, Dumbledore had ordered tighten security with the Dementors guarding the school. But somehow, Black managed to enter in the school compounds.
The new school year even sees a new Defence Against The Dark Arts professor - Remus Lupin (David Thewlis). Sybil Trelawney (Emma Thompson), the Divination professor makes her presence. She may be eccentric at times and not many taking her seriously all the time, one of her predictions did came true.
And when Ron's new pet rat Scabbers ran away on its own, a whole new set of adventures await the famous trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione. Which even led to who was the real person who went over to Lord Voldermort's side 12 years ago, leaving Harry's parents dead as a result.
Lies, betrayal, friendship...do they really have a place in Harry's world? Something (really) wicked this way comes!
It was really enjoyable, and I'm glad I finally catch it when it was on the television here few days back
The best part of the third hogwarts adventure is the time travel and also how they get to wear mufty or 'muggle clothes' for parts of the film. I know that they rarely do this in the fim but it adds a bit more flavour in the film. They are also more casual with their uniform robes which makes Hogwarts appear to be more like a normal school, pulling the audience in further. Buckbeak the hippogriff was also pretty cool.
too short for the length of the book. Alot of detail which would've made this film that tiny little bit better was left out. Having read the book before hand, this movie is nothing compared to the book. I guess each director brings something different, some like and others dont. I would've liked this movie to be longer so that more detail could have been added to it overall not bad but it does get boring after a while
Wow. I love the new direction. The style fits the movie perfectly. I also think the kids acted much better in this one. I really hope they don't get rid of Daniel Radcliff, even if he does get too broad in the shoulders. You can't swap horses mid-stream. Also, did anyone recognize the kid who played Neville at first? The biggest problem that I had was that there were a lot of things the movie didn't explain, such as "Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs." I think that it may have been hard for those who hadn't read the book to understand. It also didn't show that Harry's Patronus was a stag, which I thought was important. And Harry's eyes aren't green (which is mentioned at least once in each book), but that's a minor thing. I felt that the style fits the book well. I go back and read the first book and think "Wow, how young they all are, how naive." The books age, and I think that comes out in this movie. I hope they continue to follow the same path.
All in all, I loved the new direction and the movie itself. I can't wait 'till the next one comes out.
in the third installment of harry potter, things start to get really dark and mysterious. great acting all around, and the plot is incredible, and very well thought out. i loved it. this was a really fantastic movie! full of humour, friendships, themes about loyalty, suspense and surprise!! i really loved it, and this would be a great pressie for any fan, and should be residing in everyones dvd collection!! a marvellous movie, 5 stars all around!!!!!
The one thing that I like about the books was the fact that each character is full and rich. The problem is that there is so much missing in the film adapation that it is very hard to follow. The actors do give the feeling of growing up, as they are in real life. You either need to read the books or watch the film, you really can't do both and do justice to the story.
Just not enough, missing so much, needed more attention to some details that made the book so riveting. Very nice graphics, Hagrid plays his small part well, would like to see more of him. Dementors were not exactly what I imagined, but still had that half freak like look in them. 4 stars, advise to read the book otherwise you miss too many details.
This is the third harry potter movie out of four currently out. This one is very important and cant be missed. Harry finds out who betrays his parents- sirius balck but he actually turns out to be his godfather and was not the one to blame but it was peter pettigrew an old friend. Very exciting film. A must have for any Harry Potter film. Agreat movie for the whole family as well.
This 3rd HP movie roars! Harry discovers a dark secret...that his supposed God-father was the one who betrayed his parents and caused their death! An angry Harry decides on revenge, when the whole wizard world learns about the escape of Sirius Black, who Harry determined to track down. But things get further, her wonders whether Sirius really was the one who he should revenge, or is there someone else to blame?
