Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Rated PG-13 138 minutes 2007

That hint of darkness in the previous Harry Potter movies becomes full-blown gloom and doom in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth, and easily the nastiest, film of the franchise. The movies have gotten progressively darker, and it seems as if the kids at the center are headed toward some sort of wizardry apocalypse. This chapter’s dark spirit is a far cry from the cinematic Disneyland that was the first installment. The kids are older now, and their adolescent angst is needed as they do battle with the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and, even worse, a truly lousy and mean new teacher (Imelda Staunton). Daniel Radcliffe is becoming quite the fine actor, as are his on-screen cohorts. Harry has a tough time in this movie, and things don’t look to be getting any better in future chapters. All the more fun for us.
