Now Harry must confront a deadly dragon, fierce water demons and an enchanted maze only to find himself in the cruel grasp of He Who Must Not Be Named.

I really wanted to like this movie. I feel terribly cynical trashing it, and that's why I'm giving it a middling 5. Actually, I'm giving it a 5 because there were some superb performances.

Jonah Abbott

There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.

Kien Navarro

Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.

Frances Chung

Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a film directed by Mike Newell. With every instalment of the series, my anticipation for the film also increased. And I can say even with the fourth instalment, the excitement is never reduced.Plot: Harry Potter is selected by the Goblet of fire to compete in the Triwizard Tournament making him the youngest ever to compete much to the chagrin of everyone.Story and direction: This is the first film in the series not to have the first scene at Privett Drive. I thought it was the right move considering the film has many things going on. During the first fifteen minutes or so, the film feels quite fast paced. I didn't get the understanding as to what his happening. If the makers would have given a little importance to the beginning, I guess the film would have worked wonders. But after those initial minutes, I was totally engrossed in the movie. There were some new characters to look out for and I can say all of them impressed. Also some of the VFX work in this film is incredible especially the broom scenes which have greatly improved. With that being said, I would add that the tournament scenes were well directed. There is always a sense of tension in the atmosphere during the scenes as you care for the safety of those characters. The film also brings another aspect of the trio's friendship into light which was very nicely handled. This is the first film also not to feature John Williams as score composer. But I can very well say that Patrick Doyle did a spectacular job as composer. The film do marks the very first appearance of Voldemort and I can say that he is terrifying. With his appearance and the build-up that has beenmade, you can say that this man means business and also that he is ruthless and would harm just anyone who comes his way. Performances: If I had to pin-point I had to say that this was by far Daniel Radcliffe's best as Harry Potter. The emotional side had never been explored until this film as it was great. As for new characters, Ralph Fiennes just nailed it as Voldemort. He just looks as the villain you predicted. Brendan Gleeson brings his charm to the screen and that just lights up the scene itself. Robert Pattinson also justifies his performance. Timothy Spall and David Tenant gave good support. As for rest of the cast, always just do justice to their roles and never have they given me a single reason to complain.Favorite Scene: It would be the Yule Ball scene where the boys after the initial dance just sit at one side and are jealous of Hermione seeing she is having a lot of fun unlike them. This very well depicts the teenagers who are at that age.Verdict; Thanks to Mike Newell and Steve Kloves we have got another griping chapter to the series. Except for the first fifteen minutes, I enjoyed the entire film.I am going with a 9/10.


This movie is pretty bad. The acting and effects are worse than the previous movies. The plot is full of holes. The filler outweighs the story. Nearly every element falls apart when you try to apply logic to what's happening. Yes, this movie is entertaining. Yes, this movie is stupid. I'd only recommend watching this movie if you are already invested in the series.


It's not as good as the other Harry Potter movies but had an amazing story. In this movie, the Triwizard tournament is held at Hogwarts, and the three schools assemble there.Now any one student from each school is to participate in this tournament, but from Hogwarts two children have been. They are Harry Potter and Cedric Diggory. Now, this tournament states that all the children above the age of 17 can only participate and Harry is below the age. The tournament also states that only one child from each school would participate. People now that they know that Harry is a contestant, call him a liar. Ron, Harry's best friend also leaves Harry. People started wearing badges that stated "Cedric rules. Harry stinks". I liked that part a lot!The adventures were really amazing. they were - fighting a dragon, saving a precious friend and the maze.In the maze, Harry Potter and Cedric Diggory together meet Lord Voldemort, where he kills Cedric. The trophy turned out to be a port-key. Now to know what would Harry do, watch the movie!:)


During the previous three Harry Potter films, a showdown between Harry Potter & Dark Lord Voldemort was always hinted at but never quite fully conceived. In "Goblet of Fire", however, that confrontation does indeed finally take place and vaults the series to new heights.For a basic plot summary, "Goblet" begins with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), & Hermoine (Emma Watson) attending the Quidditch World Cup with the Weasley family. While at the Cup, the Dark Mark of Voldemort appears in the sky along with a series of attacks on the crowd.. Thus, when the trio report to their fourth year at Hogwarts, it is with an air of caution and suspicion. This is no normal semester at wizarding school, however, as the Tri-Wizard tournament is revived for the first time in ages, allowing the Hogwarts house to see students from other wizarding academies. As the competitions begin, Harry (as usual) plays a key role in the proceedings, as well as the search for Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes) followers.In terms of spectacular visuals, the fantastic aspects of the Tri-Wizard tournament make this film a perfect vehicle to really showcase some impressive special effects...which it takes full advantage of. "Goblet" is a visual treat to observe and really makes it feel as if you are completely immersed in the Potter universe.In keeping with the book, the character development and drama only amps up in this installment. The scenes at the Wizard Ball provide more insight than ever into the relationships between our favorite protagonists, while the big confrontation between Harry and the Dark Lord is absolutely riveting and almost steals the show in and of itself. A better actor than Fiennes could not have been cast for the role, as he truly is a frightening sight to behold.Overall, "Goblet of Fire" (like its novel namesake) is the best installment of the franchise so far. It perfectly combines adventure, drama, characters, music, and even some lighter moments to create a nice entertaining mixture. A few plot lines from the book are excised completely, but other than that there isn't anything else to criticize here.
