True to the form of previous Potter films, the busy story tends to lose track of characters, hyperactively vaulting from one plotline to the next without satisfying resolutions or transitions.

Chapter four in the boy-wizard franchise, and still no good scenes, interesting characters, or true imagination

Lessons of Darkness

So bloated and joyless that it makes one pine for the bland mediocrity of Chris Columbus.

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire is an endurance test for its audience.

Cinema Crazed

Very boring, recycled from the previous installments, and immensely underwhelming.

As a whole, [it] is the least impressive of the four Potter films.

Now that puberty has struck the Harry Potter universe, the series ought to move away from the insipid kid stuff.

The fourth installment (yes, it never ends) in the series about the little wizard with the round glasses grows so violent and ghoulish that it drains the appeal of stories that are best when they stay innocuous.

Frankly, the entire film felt like the cinematic version of Hamburger Helper -- too little meat trying to do too much.

My cup runneth over with tedium during this 2 1/2-hour supernatural slog.

What was a sneaking suspicion after the first three movies has become irrefutable proof [here]: if you are not a fan of, and intimately familiar with, the Harry Potter novels, you're not welcome here

It's too episodic, relying on action rather than emotion. The pace is headlong, so that the characterisation suffers.

Once Potter ditches scenes that feel taken from Beverly Hills 90210 meets Scooby-Doo, I will approach the series with more than just guarded optimism.

A marked disappointment after Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, this fourth installment in the franchise is a 157-minute holding pattern.

Like Chris Columbus, Newell delivers what is essentially an illustrated condensation of Rowling's novel.

Despite the skill and spectacle of the special effects, the prosaic storytelling is never interesting as cinema.

...likely will be enjoyed by those who read the 734-page book -- and were smart enough to bring it into the theater with them for quick reference.

[Mike] Newell turns the spine-tingling and well-crafted world J.K. Rowling created for the novel into a lump of flat banality.
