Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Reviews

By focussing the story on Harry (a leaner and slightly meaner Daniel Radcliffe) and his exploits, Yates dispenses with many of the novel's subplots and is able to push the story forward, ominously foreshadowing the dark times to come.

The older these kids get, the darker and more engrossing the Harry Potter movies become.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

It's clear that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has left the dewy-eyed awe of childhood magic and entered the brooding angst of adolescent powerlessness.

An emotional and involving installment in this hit or miss series

Yates leaps into big-budget cinema like a kid in a candy store, packing in nearly every compelling image from the 870-page source material.

Performances are more mature, the soundtrack (by Nicholas Hooper) less grandiose, and Yates executes some thrilling set-pieces.

Harry's got quite a lot on his plate this time around and that's both the strength and weakness of Order of the Phoenix.

Además de la afortunada dirección, el que este episodio tuviera un buen resultado, era de esperarse. Con un presupuesto elevado, la mayor parte del elenco repitiendo y el talento histriónico de Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Ca

The director, Peter Yates, pastes on the chiaroscuro, but under it is the summer-camp flatness that's always been the franchise's trademark

Boston Phoenix

The franchise staff (ostensibly led by Brit-TV director David Yates) dive right in, smooshing Rowling's biggest book into the shortest film and treating the rich subtext -- as well as much of the text -- as dispensable.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a gripping, evocative movie. David Yates has two great strengths to apply to the project. He is cinematically adept, and character is a priority for him.

Whether you will enjoy Order of the Phoenix relies, I suspect, largely on whether or not you are a Harry Potter fan to begin with.

The Harry Potter movies that are based on J.K. Rowling's novels have gotten progressively darker with each entry, and Order of the Phoenix may quite possibly be the darkest one yet.

With the supremely evil Valdemort having put in an appearance at the end of the previous film, you might think it would be time to circle the wagons and start planning some defensive strategies ... but you would be wrong.

There's a nagging feeling of dad trying to rush the family on a vacation. If you hurry this much, you're bound to miss something and that keeps the Potter films away from greatness.

Though it may be blasphemous to say so, this is one movie that is superior to the book.

The longest and weakest of the Potter novels becomes one of the better film adaptations of the series.

Only true fans of the books will notice many of these shortcomings, but I must hope that this was a fluke or misstep, not a sign of things to come.

...not much of a stand-alone picture but, rather, a transition from one major story strand to the next.

Possibly more Dirty Harry than the usual beloved kid bestseller bespectacled wonder wizard, as a dark side kicks in and Harry's soul is on the line.
