Critics Consensus: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone adapts its source material faithfully while condensing the novel's overstuffed narrative into an involving -- and often downright exciting -- big-screen magical caper.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is, despite its trickery, that plainest and least surprising...

A near-perfect commercial and cultural commodity.

The quickest, zappiest two and a half hours of entertainment you'll ever see.

First Potter movie is a magical ride but also intense.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the first movie in the Harry Potter series, has some intense and scary moments. Harry Potter and friends -- who are only 11 years old here -- are in peril and get hurt, but not seriously, and most of the scares come from fantasy creatures. There's a flashback to the (bloodless) death of Harry's parents and discussion about how they died and the one who killed them.
