Is The Plot Interesting?

Out of all the Harry Potter books the plot of Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix had me intrigued the most, so I knew that I would more than likely be interested in this plot and I was.

Is The Acting Good?

Even though they’re not in it for very long I liked Gary Oldman’s and Ralph Fiennes’ performances the most. Ralph Fiennes brings back what he brought in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire and Gary Oldman makes us love Sirius Black even more.

Is The Directing Good?

Yet another director joins the Harry Potter team, this time it’s David Yates. The directing style seems to work really well for this movie and it’s plot, creating the perfect tone this movie needed.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography has its good bits and its bad bits. One of the good bits is that the cinematography always goes well with the scenes that need to be more emotional or powerful but the bad bit is that this often makes it seem a bit forced.

Is It Worth Watching?

The fifth installment in the Harry Potter franchise is totally worth a watch. With an interesting plot and great chemistry within the cast, it turns out to be one of the best Harry Potter movies we’ve seen.


That foul, evil old gargoyle! We’re not learn how to defend ourselves, we’re not learning how to pass our O.W.L.s. She’s taking over the entire school!
