To think the acting in Harry Potter is really bad?

Referring primarily to the main three.

I haven't seen the films in so long but watched them when they've been on this week and it's so bad.

Wash your mouth out.

If you're talking specifically about the main three then YANBU.

Well yes yanbu

They've grown on me but whenever I go back and read the books I realise how much they've missed out

Oh, soooo bad. But it's just the kids. And it does get better

Especially Harmione

I loved!! the books. Went to the cinema to watch the first film. I was so devastated (the characters weren't how I imagined at all). I didn't bother with the others.

I dont think it matters. They're unique, the whole thing is unique.

They are terrible. Especially Hermione who emphasises every other word!

Radcliffe has grown on me as an adult though.

What's unique?

TheHiphopopotamus Wed 28-Dec-16 20:51:54

Mind you, the source material doesn't help 🙊

SherlockPotter Wed 28-Dec-16 20:51:56

Not at all.

OSETmum Wed 28-Dec-16 20:52:26

Yeah the 3 kids were really bad...

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 28-Dec-16 20:52:41

Harry Potter and that sort of filming. I think.

MischiefManagedAlways Wed 28-Dec-16 20:52:44

Ron isn't so bad, it's Harry and Hermione that make me cringe. It's such a shame as well as Hermione is my favourite character in the book, however in the film she comes across as very flat.

I'm not particularly looking forward to Emma Watsons portrayal of Belle in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast! blush

PossumInAPearTree Wed 28-Dec-16 20:53:23

They do improve through the films but the first couple of films it ain't good. Ron is good at face pulling though.

I caught a bit of it yesterday. Like watching a school play.

Fairylea Wed 28-Dec-16 20:53:48

Yanbu. But with the story and special effects I doubt anyone notices much...!

The films are so long I always fall asleep. blush

CloudPerson Wed 28-Dec-16 20:53:58

YANBU at all, the main three are fairly shit. Still watchable for the story though.

Eevee77 Wed 28-Dec-16 20:54:56

Daniel Radcliffe is just a terrible actor. Not a single word sounds convincing. I don't mind Emma Watson but I think Rupert Grint is the best.

IfartInYourGeneralDirection Wed 28-Dec-16 20:55:13

I've not seen any before this week, I can't get over how much of the book they miss out.
I know you can't fit everything into a 2h film but major plot threads are not there

ArmySal Wed 28-Dec-16 20:55:23

Harry is bad throughout, the way he says "it's the place to be tonight" in the Half Blood Prince makes me burst out laughing.

TartYvette Wed 28-Dec-16 20:55:38

I hate the films, love the books and the new illustrated books (two out so far) are much more in line with how I imagined the characters and places.

RandomDent Wed 28-Dec-16 20:55:40

The acting is terrible. As is the script and plot.

Sybys Wed 28-Dec-16 20:56:08

I remember watching the first one (still the only one I've seen) as a youngster when it was first released, and thinking Daniel Radcliffe's acting was as bad as I had ever seen - even his walking was uncomfortable and unconvincing.

Don't really remember the other two.
