Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2 Disc Special Edition)Barnaby Walter
J.K. Rowling"s fifth book has been spectacularly adapted into film, with a starry, though not unbelievable cast and a deeper, darker storyline. The story, as it is, sees Harry returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where major changes have been installed over the summer break. A new teacher has been appointed, the frothily pink, sweetly sadistic Dolores Umbridge (played expertly by BAFTA Winning Imelda Staunton) who has been positioned at Hogwarts for the purpose of spreading Ministry of Magic propaganda. This propaganda is ultimately defying Harry"s claim that wizarding terrorist Voldemort has returned to full blown power. Keeping the "everything is fine, there is no nasty wizard" mentality among the students is Unbridge"s aim, reducing defence against the dark arts lessons to mere theory studies. The character of Professor Umbridge works as a spin doctor for the Ministry of Magic. Imagine scooping out the last drops of strawberry smoothie from a blender and catching your hand on the razor-sharp blades at the bottom. This is what it is like to encounter Professor Umbridge.
This film can work both as a magical, fantasy tale or a translucent critique on real-life current affairs. Either way you look at it, British director David Yates has created a well crafted movie out of one of the weaker books in this cherished series.

As always with the Harry Potter films, you get a different feel for each one. This one is definitely on the darker side! Good plot, excellent special effects, but one point to note. It looks as though they have been doing a little cutting on the film released on DVD. I saw this film at the cinema and one glaring absence was the scene right at the beginning of the film, where they are on the train to Hogwarts. The scene that is missing is where Harry falls asleep and in his dream there are Dementors on the train. Maybe its just short changing on the part of Warners, in order to squeeze all the subtitle options etc on the one disc, but to anyone who has seen the film, it's absence sticks out like a sore thumb!
Apart from that one gripe (whch is minor) a really good film!

Much better than the book!! In this encounter Harry is older and wiser - the formation of Dumbledores army and the length that Harry and friends go to track down Voldemort is brilliant. Also the scene when Harry sees into Snape's past is priceless. Not to be Missed and a must for any Harry Potter fan!!

What a film, Best of the five. This was stunning. Lots of bits were missed out, but whatever, it was the best. Helena Bonham Carter, Natalia Tena, Imelda Staunton and Evanna Lynch join the cast and do an outstanding job. Jason Isaacs, Helena Bonham Carter, Daniel Radcliffe, Ralph Fiennes and Imelda Staunton were acting at top class. I was a little dissapointed with Natalia Tena, Michael Gambon, Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson, Gary Oldman, Evanna Lynch and Katie Leung.
Brilliant movie. David Yates, will you do another one. Hey, have you recently heard that Jim Broadbent will join the cast as Horace Slughorn. I hate Jim, so he will let the movie down. I would have wanted Bill Nighy to join.
