Harry Potter Order Of The Phoenix – Movie Review Including Preview Trailer

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix (Harry Potter) (Paperback)

As the author J.K.Rowling moves yet into even darker territory in the fifth installment of the young wizard Harry Potter’s adventures, the movie “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” manages to do the same. She starts by using an entirely new creative production team while still capturing the feel and texture of the last two Harry Potter movies. Director David Yates and new screenwriter Michael Goldenberg works their movie making chops in their debut as this installment appears to be one of J.K. Rowling’s weaker efforts (her humble opinion). They cut a few corners in omitting some parts of the original story elements while condensing other areas to keep the action moving at a faster pace than the book.

Clearly this is the darkest and most horrific Harry Potter movie yet, where some parts of the movie may scare younger children and for others, it may seem a little too grim to those who have become accustomed to the fun the Hogwarts have. It’s difficult not to be slightly amused and yet entertained by Imelda Staunton’s scene as the tea-sipping Nazi, wearing pink Dolores Umbridge. She is a goofy awkward character in the Gilderoy Lockhart mold with far more undesirable intentions underneath her sweet exterior appearance.

One thing not to be overlooked is how Daniel Radcliffe has suddenly grown up as a actor, as well as the rest of the supporting cast delivering convincing performances. This is including newcomer, Evanna Lynch as the looped out Luna Lovegood. There definitely isn’t nearly as much pure action as the last few Potter movies, but there are some breathtaking aerial shots of London, as well as a climatic battle with Voldemort shot inside the Ministry of Magic. (If you can, try watching the movie in IMAX 3D, the 3D effects adds to the visual effects in the final action sequence.) Despite any doubts, David Yates has successfully taken this Harry Potter challenge head-on, he making this movie has greatly improved upon the original book.
