As Harry Potter readies himself for his third year at Hogwarts, an incident in which he is unable to control his anger forces him on the lam. At the same time, a dangerous man named Sirius Black escapes from the Azkaban prison with one thought on his mind: to track down and kill Harry Potter. The third year at Hogwarts is full of excitement and danger for Harry and his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

I ... just wish it was a bit more. Several incredibly important scenes - like the explanation of the origin of the Marauder's Map and the names of Prongs, Wormtail, Moony, and Padfoot - were just not present. Lupin was amazing, but his characterization and gentle nature fell oddly short due to the exclusion of the past.
I expect - as in the books - Harry to grow a bit less likeable as the series progresses, but there was something almost perfunctory about how the students were portrayed. The film seemed to be in an almost breathless hurry to get to the next setpiece... but this book, this part of the story, is about relationships, family, and very, very complex moral choices - how nothing we do is simple, and the consequences of small events are often large in the grand scheme of things.
In other words: it's not a bad film, but it spends too little time on the relationships, and too much time pandering to the audience's need for Certain Events to appear. In my opinion? It's far flatter than the first two (very good!) films in the series.
This review concerns the "bonus" content for people who pre-order the dvd here on amazon. The "screensaver" is not an animated screensaver of the marauders map as you might think, which actually would have been quite nice if it had been done in the style of the map in the movie. You will be instructed to download a seperate application which will take over your windows screensaver functionality. The application is not very intuitive to use and I've since deactivated it. The "Marauders Map Screensaver" itself is nothing more then 3 random images of indistinct parts of the in-movie Marauder's Map with giant "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" logos that splashed everywhere. Its not very visually appealing as a screensaver and the images in opinion aren't very well done.
Just want to make sure that other people are aware of what exactly this bonus content is, and aren't buying the dvd here purely because of this. There is no marauders map style animation occuring here, and all that will be displayed are static images. I pre-ordered it here purely based on getting this bonus content, and I was rather disapointed with what i received.
