    A mature, tense, frightening and altogether masterful film.
  2. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    Last year's "The Prisoner of Azkaban" seemed dark, but this excellent fourth film derived from J.K. Rowling's books is the darkest "Potter" yet, intense enough to warrant a PG-13 rating.

    The uncontestable triumph of Goblet of Fire, however, is Brendan Gleeson's Alastor (Mad-Eye) Moody, the grizzled new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.
  4. 75
    With the cast getting looser and the mind games kinkier, it's hard to resist.
  5. Offers a brew of wondrous chimera combined with the wonders of human nature.
  6. Reviewed by: Ed Park
    To this viewer and reader, the decade-old juggernaut is as deeply felt as it is flawed, dense and illogical and laudably "weird."

    What an amazing film! By far the best harry potter film of the bunch. This film just took my breath away. I loved it! It was so emotional esp. at the end, so many people in the theater were crying. It was a great movie. Go see it! Expand

    Spectacular!Its the best blockbuster of the year!I watched King Kong and Narnia,but none of them compare to the fuel and beauty that Goblet of Fire carries.Its a film that has everything: Horror,Comedy,Romance,Drama,Action,Suspense.The maze was amazing,and the effects are brilliant.Thank you Mike Newell,for bringing a film with flying colors and triumphant action.

    My personal favorite in the series and in my opinion the best in the series, it's funnier and has more action, and the story is the best yet, a must see and deserving of nothing less than a perfect 10 not because it's the best Harry Potter, but because it will suck you in, a must see for fans.

    The best book so far in the series is translated as well as seems possible. The intensity of key scenes in the book is very difficult to capture, and given the limits of time they seem less intense here and fly by quickly. But what is there keeps one glued to the screen for the entire time. Expand

    Hail to the thief There is not a skant of originality to be found in this waifer thin super british film(why in films are the british so toffy nosed, and exageratedly propper? we are not really like this). The last Harry Snotter film was much better. Expand
