Time drags between the feats of abdacadbra.
November 17, 2005
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 1, 2009
Chapter four in the boy-wizard franchise, and still no good scenes, interesting characters, or true imagination
December 29, 2005
So bloated and joyless that it makes one pine for the bland mediocrity of Chris Columbus.

December 8, 2014
Goblet is really just a glorified, 157-minute teaser trailer, an empty epic of proportions that truly stagger.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire is an endurance test for its audience.
Full Review | Original Score: D
June 15, 2013
Very boring, recycled from the previous installments, and immensely underwhelming.
September 28, 2006
Never feels anything other than a single thread of a larger narrative.
June 24, 2006
Newell handles this unfamiliar material competently enough, but the film never picks up any true momentum.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 18, 2005
As a whole, [it] is the least impressive of the four Potter films.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 15, 2005
Now that puberty has struck the Harry Potter universe, the series ought to move away from the insipid kid stuff.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 17, 2005
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.
November 23, 2005
My cup runneth over with tedium during this 2 1/2-hour supernatural slog.

November 18, 2005
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

January 17, 2006
It's too episodic, relying on action rather than emotion. The pace is headlong, so that the characterisation suffers.
November 17, 2005
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.
June 27, 2011
A marked disappointment after Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, this fourth installment in the franchise is a 157-minute holding pattern.
November 18, 2005
Like Chris Columbus, Newell delivers what is essentially an illustrated condensation of Rowling's novel.

November 14, 2005
Despite the skill and spectacle of the special effects, the prosaic storytelling is never interesting as cinema.
