Note: The following text may contain spoilers

HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS is the second Harry Potter adventure. Harry and his friends must contend with a new teacher and battling monsters at the school.

Violence

There are scenes of mild horror and violence but all are clearly presented in a fantasy setting, which is likely to be familiar to children who know of, or have read, the books. Very brief sight of blood is sometimes seen after characters are injured in fights with magical creatures, but any injuries are quickly healed.

Threat

There is some tension and a handful of 'jump' moments in the roller-coaster style adventure story, but such scenes are over relatively quickly, and involve familiar characters. The strongest moments include a scene in which good characters are threatened by a sinister spider that traps them and intends to kill them. This scene has the potential to alarm younger viewers, or those who are already scared of spiders.

Language

The film contains some mild language including uses of 'bloody', 'what the devil', 'hell' and 'ruddy' - occasionally by child characters.
