Movie Review by Chris
September 3rd, 2007

Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix is the 5th movie in a 7 part series. Based of JK Rowlings novels. The film is bigger in visual effects, action and build up of character.

As another year begins for Harry, at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry so does the never-ending articles stating that he and Dumbledore are insane. As the ministry starts to invent new and malicious lies about Harry's account on Voldemort's return, Hogwarts begins to change for the worse as the ministry sends in their cure for all the insanity, Professor Dolores Jane Umbridge. As she begins to inflict her rules and regulations on the students at Hogwarts they begin to find that with her as their teacher, they'll never be ready for the outside world. So Harry along with his friends decides to take things into their own hands and begin to learn magic the real way. As Harry starts having visions of terrible events happening with the Ministries very walls he decides to take action, leading himself and his friends into battle, ultimately teaching them what friendship, loyalty and sacrifice really means.

Daniel Radcliffe still plays as Harry Potter. Harry is now getting more mature with his character, and Daniel sticks with it remarkably. He gets the character right, and delivers what is expected. Emma Watson plays as Hermione Granger, and is still kicking it. She gets her part amazingly exact and still gives ius the great performance we got in the first 4 movies. Rupert Grint is still Ron Weasley. He is a magnificent character who loves to make us laugh. Ralph Fiennes is still doing an amazing Lord Voldemort.

The special effects in the movie are spectacular. Director David Yates gives us some really stunning angles and gives us some one shot wonders. The film is impressive to watch. In the first 4 films, we get a lot of colors and darkness when needed. This film almost looks black, white and blue. The colors are used very well and give us something to awe at.

The film now has an emotional side to it. We get Harry's first love along with more friendship problems. Harry deals with more death and suffering in this film then any other film.

Bottom Line: Amazing and Spectacular.
