There's no doubt that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be a big hit for the fans.

Don't get me wrong, it's still very entertaining, but I think they tried to cram a long book into a short movie, changing scenes too fast.

The result feels more like a race than a film.

The ending doesn't pack the same punch experienced in the Goblet of Fire, and just not as much fun for me.

After all is said and done, it's still a good solid scissors sideways.
Welcome back to the summer of sequels. This week: Harry Potter.

Gone forever are the lighthearted stories of a young wizard and his follies at Hogwarts.

In its place is the dark tale of a man grappling with his past and ultimately his destiny. And unless you're a fan, this one may lose you.

However, top-notch directing, acting, and CGI will save you from the ominous tone.
This is the fifth movie in the Harry Potter film series, that has been building excitement and suspense over the past four pictures and has climbed to another level.

With this well-paced adventure we sense that we're on the edge of something big, dark, and threatening.

With The Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter has come into his own. The wizard has grown up and gets his first kiss and now faces many mature problems that should be revealled in the next installment, which comes out in 18 months.
