Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Reviews

    The film set up more loathed villains, the plot is not as convoluted as its predecessors, but what is exceeds in the most is not just the focus on its titular character but for the immense character development of the franchise's minimal background characters.

    The mistakes made in the previous iteration, of slightly confused direction but ultimately faithful adaptions, now whiplashes back in the other direction. David Yates is now in the helm, and he has ambitions. He seeks to inject the film with a bit of maturity and wry fun. And what a fantastic arc to do this for, with its eternal teenage rebellion atmosphere being ideal. The scrappy presentation and darker, more mature themes being allowed their chance in the spotlight defined the rest of the series moving forward, and did so in the best, most creative way possible.

    Tbis was another pretty good sequel. I enjoyed this film a bit more than "Harry Potter and the Gobalt of Fire" because it had a better story in my opinion.

    good direction is the only redeeming value, but it was better than the first two, which should go without saying

    Things are getting tough for our hero and action packed for the audience.

    Definitely one of the weaker movies, with not much unique flair to it. It kind of just falls short of what could've been much better.

    This Potter movie is better than all four installments before it. The story is excellent and heartwarming, and the action is great. This is must-watch.

    It has it moments for sure, but ultimately falls short and gets rather boring in between with nothing to offer besides stunning visuals and a somewhat climatic end sequence with Harry Potter flare.

    The majority of the movie is pretty bland and not truly telling of the brilliance of Rowling, but is saved by a tremendous battle scene of Voldemort and Dumbledore.
