FILM REVIEW: HARRY POTTER & THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX – “THE REBELLION BEGINS”

Plot Outline: With their warning about Lord Voldemort’s return scoffed at, Harry and Dumbledore are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts.

Main Cast Members: Danel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Ralph Fiennes

The fifth installment of this best selling series of films hit the cinemas last week.  So, I waited until the initial crush to see it died down and toddled off to see it last night.  What’s it like?  Well, its more of the same for all of ye Potter fans out there.  I’ve never read the books but I’ve seen all of the films to date and enjoyed them immensely.  This films follows the same formula as previous films, in that it centres on the Hogwarts School of Wizardary.  There only, in my opinion two minor issues with this film.  Firstly, in my opinion it is the first of the series that does not stand up in its own right.  That is to say that you would really have to have seen the previous films to fully understand this film.  And, secondly, it has slightly less action than previous films, though this does not really make it any less enjoyable.

Potter fans will adore this film, the rest of ye………rent the rest and then watch it!!
