Goblet is really just a glorified, 157-minute teaser trailer, an empty epic of proportions that truly stagger.
June 15, 2013
Very boring, recycled from the previous installments, and immensely underwhelming.
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.
September 1, 2009
Chapter four in the boy-wizard franchise, and still no good scenes, interesting characters, or true imagination
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.
January 17, 2006
It's too episodic, relying on action rather than emotion. The pace is headlong, so that the characterisation suffers.
December 29, 2005
So bloated and joyless that it makes one pine for the bland mediocrity of Chris Columbus.
December 6, 2005
An overlong film.

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

Time drags between the feats of abdacadbra.

[Mike] Newell turns the spine-tingling and well-crafted world J.K. Rowling created for the novel into a lump of flat banality.
November 18, 2005
As a whole, [it] is the least impressive of the four Potter films.
November 18, 2005
Visually exciting and dramatically flaccid, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire seems destined to separate the faithful from the phonies.
November 18, 2005
Like Chris Columbus, Newell delivers what is essentially an illustrated condensation of Rowling's novel.
November 18, 2005
...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.
November 18, 2005
Frankly, the entire film felt like the cinematic version of Hamburger Helper -- too little meat trying to do too much.
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
