In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts only to discover that much of the wizarding community has been led to believe that the story of the teenager's recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort is a lie, putting Harry's integrity in question. Worse, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, has appointed a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, the duplicitous Professor Dolores Umbridge... (imdb)

It's limited by its source material (the weakest book in the series), and the death of a major character doesn't have the dramatic weight that it should. Still, it's the most visually rich entry in the series so far, and the climactic wizard duel truly wows.

Actually quite cinematically stunning. Shot/directed beautifully, and the editing and special effects are brilliant. Obviously misses and changes some of the plot stories in the book, but that's only expected and it pulls it off well. Emotionally gripping, mature, well-acted (for once), and overall the first Potter film to be a genuinely very good movie. Impressive.

These movies have gone from forgettable to downright bad. There's no room for any development of the supporting characters, the events just happen but lose their significance, and the ending downright contradicts the books and eliminates large portions of the plot for future films. If I hadn't read the books, I'd be lost and confused, and as I have, I'm just angry. This is the wrong approach entirely.

In all fairness, I had been avoiding the Harry Potter franchise entirely, and only watched this because they showed it on a flight. Anyway, it was pretty straight-forward and doesn't look as if I've missed much. Just as expected, it's your usual cookie-cutter children-oriented blockbuster, and has very little value or substance whatever your age might be.

For the first time the series finds a genuine villain in Dolores Umbridge. Imelda Staunton's fantastic portrayal really hits a nerve. The twisting of Hogwarts into an regressive authoritarian hellhole in line with the political establishment and tabloid media should grip at the gut of free-thinkers, progressives and school children alike. Yates does justice to Rowling's fairly scathing political commentary, as bleak as it is, and the supporting cast is as richly characterised as the lead roles.

Considering that the longest Harry Potter novel became one of the shortest adaptations, its fast pace was to be expected - the film is galloping from one crucial story point to another, cutting everything possible in between. Still, it's done reasonably well, and although someone who had not read the book may have trouble following or at least enjoying the film, they probably wouldn't be in the audience for the first place, would they?

The Order of the Phoenix may be my least favorite book in the series, and now I remember why. So many things here are, in a word, irritating. Harry's constant whining is irritating; the Ministry of Magic's unwillingness to admit that Voldemort has returned makes no sense, and is irritating; Dolores Umbridge is an irritatingly bad character. Another problem is that the film feels very rushed. It's still Harry Potter so I still enjoyed it to an extent, but for me it's a bit of nadir in the series.

I was impressed by Daniel Radcliffe's performance in this installment. He's come much farther than any of the other child actors and it seems like he has a viable future in acting. The cast is uniformly good, as always, and the special effects were employed very tastefully. The showdown between Voldemort and Dumbledore and Harry's subsequent possession was the best sequence in the HP films, bar none. I'm excited to see the next book on screen soon.

Immelda Staunton is superb and epitomises the character of Dolores Umbridge perfectly. I love the books but I found the movie had too many characters and scenes not easily understood without reading the source material. I know it's difficult to squeeze the richness of the narrative into c. 140minute film but they only did an adequate job.

More political this time around, examining intra-Hogwarts conflict between a governing body and the school itself. I like that, in part because we've had a few movies to establish the setting/dynamic, and in part because it's just done well. The characters around Harry--some arguably more interesting than him--are given ample opportunity to shine. Other movies allowed that too, but this one has done it the best. Good fights, especially at the end. Exciting. Emotional.

Ugh. The political story is a drag, and too much narration is done through devices such as voiceovers, CG and flying newspapers. All in all the story here is a mess. On the plus side, the kid actors are on better form and the spellcasting effects and battle scenes are better than any before. The best performance is once again Alan Rickman's which reflects poorly on co-stars with more screen time. Also someone in charge of the climactic fight scene was clearly a Star Wars fanboy. Again... mess.

Improved, but still nothing special and is instantly forgettable. The special effects are quite unconvincing in places lacking "oomph" and the plot was scrappy, essentially making the film very much a bare-bones version. On top of that the acting of the leading teenage actors is still below par, the magic is unbalanced with no physical damage shown to cause death (Sirius Black). The final sequence was just all too little, too late. The series fails to inflate to its true potential once again.

I think the critics have collectively missed the boat in saying the franchise has lost its magic. On the contrary, this fifth film keeps the magic alive and exhilarating. The flaws of the last HP films are becoming more and more recognized and therefore pruned. Radcliffe isn't as bad as he can be and there is a great compromise between story and style. For us to expect the movies to continue wowing us is a sad mistake. Stay in it for Harry Potter himself and his amazing, continuing story.

The appeal of these movies continues to avoid me. I have a great affection for the books, but that doesn't automatically translate into a love for the movies. The kids have not grown more talented as actors and the adults (some of the UK's finest actors), aren't given enough to do. Let's not make the Harry Potter movies for the sake of making them. We need some quality control in here.

Horribly directed and edited, completely formulaic and predictable. I haven't read any of the books and didn't know anything about the story, but I had it figured out halfway through. It felt like a movie for kids, more so than the other ones I've seen. A pretty good example of how NOT to do an adaptation. Everything is really disjointed, the pacing is bad, and many of the characters are completely useless and should have just been left out.

Though widely considered the worst of the Potter films, screenwriter Michael Goldenberg finally brings focus to the series that the previous films failed to achieve. David Yates adds a certain darkness and maturity that ages the series perfectly with its audience and remains for the duration of the series. However, it still carries much of the same Potter faults and is overall a mediocre film at best.

Incoherent, but worth seeing for Imelda Staunton's performance and the impeccable production design. As usual, Harry is passive and boring and has to be talked into doing a bunch of things that are other people's ideas. Oh, and the little blonde Irish girl is adorable and the other best thing in the movie.

I've never been a fan of potter. In fact I don't even remember if I've seen the previous one in this franchise. This was worse than I expected. No sense of direction, no real character development, no solid acting, and no coherency. Still somewhat watchable for its fantasy world. (oh and Emma Watson cannot act at all).

Maybe not the most entertaining one, but at least comparing it to the worst of the saga (Goblet of Fire, slightly more enjoyable as it includes much more action and events), Order of the Phoenix has more message and is better directed. It's again back to the dark side of the saga it shouldn't have lost from Prisoner of Azkaban and that will go better every chapter since this one. Still at the bottom after Goblet anyway.

If you only watch 2 Harry Potter films, go with this one and HP7.2. They are the most focused and the most entertaining. With four Harry Potter films behind him, Radcliffe suddenly turned into a respectable actor. Good timing, too, with this installment being all about him and his plight. It's by far the best of the Harry Potter films up until the point it got released. The battle at the end is a series highlight. Also, Imelda Staunton and Evanna Lynch are perfectly evil and weird, respectively.

While the pacing and storytelling is divise on this one, it is still my favorite installment in the series (both book and film) because of it's use of the fact that cruelty transcends the dark and light side of a conflict, exemplified by the character of Umbridge. Also, I really did enjoy the climactic fight. Peter Jackson talked about how wizards often come off as goofy on film, but this final duel manages to show both magic behemoths as both skilled and vulnerable. Plus it looks damn good.

The direction and camera work is the darkest of the saga so far and Daniel Radcliffe has finally shown that he has some acting chops.

By no means one of the better HP movies, but it isn’t near as bad as some led some to believe. If anything, the story benefited from taking things out. The book is way too long. I could have used more Occlumency with Snape, and seeing the teachers’ treatment and reactions in the book was so priceless I’m surprised most of that wasn’t in this. Finale was fine, just not as cool as the book. Overall, it’s not a half-bad adaptation, and it’s a well made and acted movie. Good, not great.

Order of the Phoenix is second only to the Prisoner of Azkaban among the Harry Potter movies. It takes what I consider the worst book of the series and exercises some discipline on the source material. There was a lot of fat in the book, subplots that weren't necessarily useful, that Yates cut out in favor of the main story. It works and Order of the Phoenix is a solidly entertaining movie.

Well-done, with pretty good acting and some phenomenal special effects. I actually saw this in IMAX, which had the last 15 minutes or so (basically, the big fight scene) in 3D. I liked better than 'Prisoner of Azkaban' and 'Chamber of Secrets', but not as much as the first film.

The special effects are great as always, even more so combined with the film's murky-blue pallet, and the actors step up their game for a number of emotional scenes. The biggest problem is there's so much plot crammed into 140 minutes that everything feels a tad rushed and moments that could be great act as simple stepping stones to the next plot point.

It's already matured in2 something much darker w/ subtext a plenty & wonderfully despicable villains (the adorably prim fascist headmaster is an original) when they're not outright psychotic (Bellatrix's bilious cry of "Mud-Blood!" packs more hate than a Klan rally).

This movie is great. Dolores Umbridge is the most unpleasant character ever played. You will hate her from the first minute to the last, and this means that the actress did a stunning performance. The last stand between Dumbledoor and Lord Voldemort is super cool. Minor flaws in the script and some lacks in the description of the importance of OWL for the young wizards (read the books) don't change the fact that this movie is awesome.

The Order of the Phoenix is one of my favorite movies in the series. This movie introduces Dolores Umbridge, who I find more contemptible than Lord Voldemort himself. This movie also introduces Luna Lovegood who's character was a good addition to the tight cast of young characters that had grown stale over the last four movies. Helena Bonham Carter shows up for the first time in this movie and kills her cousin Sirius Black. This movie was packed with action and a great story.

David Yates takes over for good, and this, the fifth Harry Potter film, is a very good one indeed. I feel it is a little underrated; I seem to have developed a soft spot for this one. We get Bellatrix. We get Luna. We get the fuckin' badass Order. We get Dumbledore's Army. We get Cho. And that fuckin' bitch Umbridge. Easily one of the coolest, most bad-ass films of the franchise. The action is grand and gets all the better when paired with clever humour and romantic elements.
