In "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community has been denied the truth about the teenager's recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, is lying about Voldemort's return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students.

It's action-packed, darker, more epic and thankfully schmaltz-free. And it's the best Harry Potter film yet.
Colin Bertram
New York Daily News

Die-hard Potter addicts should have no fear about "Phoenix." Even as they are swept toward the effects- and action-filled climactic battle, fans will rejoice that Yates has distilled J.K. Rowling's broad universe with care and reverence. And, of course, there's the spellbinding scene of a young wizard's first kiss. The magic is definitely back.

Able 'Potter' growing darker
Tom Charity

There's still enough suspense built into the saga to keep us watching, but after five installments, this dazzling box office wizard is slowly running out of tricks.There's less wonder here, and less fun -- not even a Quidditch match. In its place is a prevailing sense of grim determination.

Yes, the fifth in the projected seven-movie series is quite a journey
Nancy Churnin
Dallas Morning News

To their credit, new director David Yates and new screenwriter Michael Goldenberg never lose the heart of the tale. Even in the midst of an incredibly thrilling magical battle of whippeting wands, flashing light and furor, they focus on Harry's inner war. Will he give into the angry impulses that link him to Voldemort or find the love his mother implanted in his blood when she died to save him?

A powerful, poignant coming-of-age story.
Richard Corliss
TIME Magazine

And Radcliffe measures up to his character; his bold shadings reveal Harry as both a tortured adolescent and an epic hero ready to do battle. All of which makes Potter 5 not just a ripping yarn but a powerful, poignant coming-of-age story.
