After four movies, the series is beginning to show it's age as the kids are growing up. It was yesterday that the kids are fighting for the house cup. Now the same group of kids are figting for their lives. In the MTV Movie Awards, I voted "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" as the best move I haven't seen. Well I saw it and I glad that I voted for that movie. In the fifth installment, Harry Potter is having a hard time convincing everyone that Voldemont is back. but he's isn't the only villain in the movie. A teacher comes to Hogwart and shortly afterward has taken over the school, and issue so many strick rulkes that you have to have a broomstick to read some of the rules. I like Voldmont. He's a better villain than that Dr. Doom from "Fantastic Four:The Rise of the Silver Surfer." The old cast is back. And I'm glad. Although the fifth movie is not as good as any of the four movies, My heart is still with Harry and the Hogwart students. I'm looking forward for the last two movies. I had fun with those movies. As for the books, I still going though the first book in the series. The series is still high flying.
As always another great Potter movie. I really loved the movie, but I couldn't quite give it a see now. This movie is defiantly darker, and I doubt that smaller children will understand it. I was a little disappointed only because one of my favorite characters die and it was not played as sad as it should have been. Take the time to see the movie while it is still on the big screen.
While acknowledging that the entire book cannot be represented in the movie, Order of the Phoenix barely resembled the book. It didn't even match the hype of the trailers. (If you saw the trailers, you've seen the movie.) If I were JK Rowling, I'd be pitching a fit!! Scenes were out of story timeline, essential backstory was not present, liberties were taken by expanding parts of scenes that don't occur in the book. I was almost rooting for the Ministry of Magic to prevail.
It wasn't worth the price of the ticket to see this distorted version of what to date has been an exciting series. Another example of why the book is always so much better than the movie. Let's hope that Half Blood Prince resembles the book more closely than this poor excuse...although that's unlikely since several of the pieces of backstory needed to understand Half Blood Prince weren't present in Order of the Phoenix.
great movie u won't be able to tear your eyes from the screen til the end
This is one of the better book to movie transformations in the series.
This one was not as good as all the other ones. I was honestly a little dissappointed.
It was a dark book so naturally it was a dark movie. Not the typical fun type movie as in the past with Harry Potter but it held true to the story line. True Harry Potter fans will appreciate this movie.
Loved it and so did my 12 year old. We love all the Harry Potters.
