Some nice wizardy gadgetry like the bus and the town house. Mostly though a lot of politics and stuff that doesn’t seem very kid-friendly. I mean, it’s still a kid casting spells but this time there’s a very grown-up feel and certainly dark lighting everywhere.

Not keen on these in between style films where there’s a series of them and this one is the plot-bridge between them but there isn’t too much here that can’t be taken on it’s own once you accept that a lot of stuff has a good pile of past that you might never know about.

On the plus point, there’s a good amount about kids running around learning spells and how to defeat the big baddy in ways the adults can’t do. All good fantasy scenes and the show moves nicely when the ‘montage’ scenes are taking place.

Good, but not the best. Don’t bother with these movies on their own as much better with the box set although mine had no extras.
