After nineteen years, Harry Potter, who had grown up, and Professor Chilo at the School of Magic, actually became friends of the prison.

The cute Harry Potter Jr. (Daniel Drakecliff) was once described by the mean netizens as "long disabled", but he has been working hard on Harry since December Boy Beyond Potter seeks more role possibilities and acting skills are always online.

The gathering of masters and apprentices in "Escape from Pretoria" is also quite topical, but this version of the "Harry Potter Edition" Prison Break "adapted from the real story is relatively mediocre despite its complete elements.

Value reversal

How to establish the rationality for the jailbreak behavior?
Several paths in the movie are very clear.

Outstanding performance by Our boy Daniel Radcliff. I truly enjoyed the movie. Sometimes i felt myself also a living being there. It's delightful to hear that this movie Based on the real-life prison break. Thriller ! Thriller ! Thriller !
