Aro Recommended Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

 

USA 2005, 157 minutes
Dir. Mike Newell
Rating: [M]
Genres: Family / Fantasy

 

Aroview: The fourth chapter in the unfolding Harry Potter series marks a devastating plunge into raw suspense and truly epic adventure for the young wizard (Radcliffe), who must cope with burgeoning hormonal emotions and the nagging quest to revenge himself upon Voldemort (Fiennes) for his parent's murder.

Along the way young Harry attends his first school dance at Hogwarts and is chosen for a nasty Tri-Wizard tournament against several other schools of wizardry for the titular goblet. Although the condensation of J.K. Rowling's extremely thick tome may disappoint a few diehard fans, this manages to cram in the main points, more importantly sustaining its committment to atmosphere. Dir. Newell pulls good detail and earnestness from his cast and the dreamlike illogic of the fantasy is beautifully rendered.
