Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham-Carter, Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson.
Director: David Yates
Rating: PG-13
Plot: Harry and friends are back in another wild adventure. This time, Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) is after a globe which contains a prophecy. Meanwhile, the Minister of Magic moves to secure Hogwarts by sending in a replacement for Dumbledore.
Notes: This is my least favorite of the Harry Potter movies. While the action is good, the CGI effects are rough. The film felt rushed and the actors seemed almost embarrassed. Despite this, there are some great sequences in the film and Alan Rickman turns in another fantastic performance as Severus Snape.
Rating: Worth seeing; Three Goons out of Five.

    As I said, the CGI was rough. Also, the editing was not very well done; it didn’t flow as much as, say, The Sorcerer’s Stone did.

    I think the powers-that-be at Warner Brothers need to find a director (preferably Chris Columbus, who directed the first two films) to direct the last two.

    For me, this is a low point in the series, which is a shame, considering it’s an important link in the overall story.

    Thanks for posting in my blog!

    np…I agree with the points, just not as hard founded as you about them I guess (yeah-I am a sucker for the HP series -lol)

    But in all honesty, they did skimp on a lot of the plot- but I still think it was good 😉

    But I do hope that the last 2 movies do the books a better justice.
