'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'
(Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Robbie Coltrane, et al / PG-13 / 157 mins / Warner Bros.)
Overview: Our young hero Harry Potter is now 14 years old and is set to leave his Muggle relatives in a couple of weeks to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. But one night Harry has a disturbing vision. Knowing that Lord Voldemort and his sinister familiars — the Death Eaters — are out to get him, Harry is understandably on edge. He contacts his godfather, Sirius Black, for help.
Verdict: As good as these actors are, nothing prepares you for the malevolent force that is Lord Voldemort and the brilliance of the actor playing him, Ralph Fiennes. Inventive visuals and funny bits abound here in this latest Rowling installment, and Newell definitely puts his own stamp on the franchise and delivers the best Potter movie yet filmed ... in our humble opinion, of course! Further, this new film is exactly what fans are looking for, offering eye-boggling spectacle and lots of well-executed action scenes. And yes, it may well be the darkest 'Potter' yet, but it's also (as already pointed out) the best!
