Snape says it all right in the book: 'You have no subtlety, Potter.'

For almost the entirety of Order of the Phoenix, we see much the same thing we did in Goblet of Fire.

Whatever happened to the delight and, if you'll excuse the term, the magic in the Harry Potter series?

It feels like Charlie Brown getting ready to kick the football that Lucy's holding. He's sure she's going to pull it away once again, but Charlie gives it another try anyway, because it's there, and who knows, maybe this time will be different.

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

There is the fact that this [movie] is a watershed of backstory, revelations and plot clarifications before heading into the two remaining chapters. So while Phoenix is a necessary film, it's quite possibly the least enjoyable of the lot so far.

Now that Harry has ditched childhood, it seems high time the franchise also dispatches with its immature and draggy literal-mindedness.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

With a script heavy on exposition almost completely devoid of sustained action sequences, Harry's latest is long on spiel and short on spells.

Brought me straight back to one of the most enduring of childhood feelings: boredom.

The script just doesn't work unless you've got a Cliff's Notes version of the novels there with you.

Eric Kohn
New York Press

Despite the smooth transition of the wondrous Potter mythology from Rowling's pen to the screen -- thanks to the efforts of several talented filmmakers -- the gradually unfurling plot remains grounded in routine.

Characters are given less room than usual to grow and shine, and despite its relatively short running time, the film occasionally goes through the motions of telling a story rather than actually doing so.

not a bad way to spend an afternoon, but even in a summer of uncommonly weak blockbusters, casual fans can probably find more thrilling ways to spend two hours

As the number of pages gets higher, the movies are having a tougher time squeezing them all into one cohesive narrative.

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

A severely streamlined, stiff series low. Aside from Imelda Staunton's spirited performance and Daniel Radcliffe's typically impressive stoicism, this adaptation reduces J.K. Rowling's zesty prose to lumpy, gray porridge.

The movie's all set-up and no payoff, merely a placeholder until the series' next cash cow moos into theaters.

There's a really good one-hour movie here, but you'll have to blast through 138 minutes to find it.
