OOTP reviews- Good and Slightly Bad

After screenings and tokyo premiere, review for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has just arrived. The London Times, has given it three stars out of five. (isn't really good)


"The acting skills of Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione) have improved, but not enough to truly flesh out the characters and provide the narrative depth this transitional, plot-advancing film needs. They have got “angry” and “determined” down pat at this point, but struggle somewhat on the more nuanced grimaces. Harry’s bellowing cod-psychoanalysis of Voldemort is jarringly awful."

Another review has also arrived, being a bit better than the above:


"They probably won't be screaming "Harry, you're so cool" when they see the film. Yet the film is dark enough to engage adults, familiar enough to reassure us and fast-paced, as 766 pages are packed into two hours and 18 minutes. Each successive film in the Harry Potter series adds layers of depth while the plot moves into rewarding territory. Existing characters grow richer and more complex while new characters add spice."

More will come in few days. Keep Checking!!
