HERE IS A LARGE SELECTION OF REVIEWS FROM WHICH EMMA RECIEVED FOR HER PORTRAYAL OF HERMIONE IN "HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE"
I was especially impressed by young Emma Watsons masterful portrayal of Hermione Granger. I have trouble believing that Harry Potter is her first film, and I suspect she is destined for a great career.
Hermione Granger is played by Emma Watson, Emma is a very beautiful little girl, so its nice they gave her that wacky hair to offset it. Shes nicely snotty and could certainly grow up to be a supermodel if she could keep the whole Hermione attitude! Although I doubt thats what is in store for Hermione! Emma is good and will get even better.
The friends are Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), whos merry face and tangled curls give Harry nudges in the direction of lightening up a little.
Only young Emma Watson as Hermione Granger has the speed and self possession onscreen to really bring her character to life.
The best reading comes from Emma Watson who captures Hermiones precocious energy.
Easily the best is scene stealer Emma Watson as Harrys companion Hermione Granger. This first-time screen actress has an endearing type A personality that reminds one of what Reese Witherspoon must have been like when she was young.
Watson , who plays Hermione Ganger was simply amazing, especially considering that this is her acting debut.
Harry, Ron and Hermione are played with great enthusiasm by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson respectively. However, Miss Watson just wins by a nose in the acting stakes with her hilairiously precocious performance.
Emma Watson is adorable as the know-it-all with a heart of gold.
Emma Watson was absolutely adorable as Hermione. She was perhaps my favourite character in the show.
But the one actor who slips so naturally into her role that she hardly seems to be doing any acting at all is Emma Watson. With her unruly head of curls and tiny turned-up nose, Watson IS Hermione Granger, the smarty pants who proves to be a staunch friend in need.
Watson is easily the standout, developing Hermione into a girl who may get good grades in school but is insecure of herself on the outside.
Watson, with her pointy raised chin and pursed lips, is the perfect little snoot who can turn the remark, WHAT. AN. IDIOT, into three clipped sentences. Shes an exceptionally beautiful child with palpable charisma.
DR J AT THE MOVIES
Watson as the brainy Hermione is appropriately feisty as one the minority females at the school, reminding me somewhat of a young Anna Paquin (and she has a great accent too).
Emma Watson is adorable and utterly charming.
SCOTTS MOVIE REVIEWS
Watson is witty, wise and irresistible to watch.
Of the three young actors, it is Emma Watson that I am absolutely delighted with. Her character feels so real and honest. The girl that wants to be one of the boys, who wants to succeed and will work hard for it, but is pigeonholed by others as being a know-it-all and rude.when she is just trying to help and assist. Both the girl and the character are my faves.
Watson is especially excellent as the know-it-all brainiac Hermione. Shes got the holier than thou, haughty attitude down brilliantly.
Watson, as the precocious Hermione, is smart and energetic taking a bigger bite out of this movie than any other actor.
Fox97.1 FM REVIEW
Emma Watson, though way to cute to play the on-the-page bucktoothed Hermione, actually makes the strongest impression of the bunch the girl knows how to sell her lines as the bossy teachers pet.
Watson is as cute as a button
Watch out for young Watson in the future. She is a feisty little actress and she steals the show away from the non- descriptive Harry Potter.
The kids that play Ron and Hermione are great talents, especially the young actress playing Hermione. She is a talent to look out for.
Emma Watson is Hermione, a pert lass of sass and brilliance.
Watson was my single favourite performance of the film. Could she be ant more perfect? She got the overachieving aspect of the character, she got the emotional-girl-inside-the-hard-shell aspect, and managed to build her performance to perfection.
ENTERTAINMENT NEWS DAILY
It is particularly noticeable when Emma Watson comes onscreen as Harrys bud Hermione; a complete newcomer to acting, she has a charisma that is almost magical.
Damned near stealing the entire show for me is Emma Watson in the part of Hermione Granger, the girl wizard. Shes saucy, wise, bossy, impertinent and very cool. An absolute jewel.
Potters little friends were good too, Hermione Granger is a ham, and in about 5 years shell be fuelling a whole new generations masturbatory fantasies. You heard it here first.
DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Emma Watson who plays Hermione, manages to be fussy and fretful while still being likable- no easy feat for an actor of any age.
Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) nearly steals the movie. She Is fantastic.
Emma Watson summons the know-it-all imperiousness of Hermione Granger.
Watson is perfectly the picture of bookish arrogance, and plays the part to the hilt.
Finally Watson makes an entrancing entrancing debut as Hermione, the bookworm, the know-it-all who plays by the rules and tsk-tsks the boys when they dont. Physically she is prettier than we expected Hermione to be, with a mane of wild hair and stormy dark eyes. At 10 Watson has the gift of a precocious child, that of being simultaneously snooty and charming. Meeting Harry and Ron for the first time, she considers the two of them, informs Ron that he has dirt on his nose then turns on her heel with a sharp pleasure and flounces off, leaving us utterly hooked.
Emma Watson delights as the brainy, supercilious but always game Hermione.
The prepubescent Watson is absurdly alluring to those of us who always went for the bossy girls; when she fixed her sharp brown eyes on Radcliffe and said "Harreh do be keh-ful" my heart did about five somersaults.
Had I not read the book, I would have wondered why this film wasnt called Hermione Granger and the sorcerers stone. Newcomer Emma Watson is such a young charmer with her luxuriant pre- Raphaelite hair and bold, proud smile, and is so expressively alive as Harrys sometimes-annoying but loyal pal Hermione, that shes the movies true child star.
.nor as disarmingly charming as Hermione Granger, whom 10 year old Emma Watson plays to the hilt.
And Emma Watson as Hermione is an adorable know-it-all, the kid in the class with her hand up first.
But the real comic timing here comes from 10 yearold Emma Watson, who brings a delightfully self satisfied bounce to the bossy Hermione. She flounces about making pronouncements, tossing back her hair and wrinkling her little nose -I see a Meg Ryan-like career for this kid.
