What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Jeanne Hugo Skouspelagtig, maar redelik oppervlakkig.
Kenneth Turan Just another episode in Harry's life.
Nils van der Linden Neither Harry nor the custodians of JK Rowling's fifth book seem to have a very firm grip on what they're doing, instead resorting to a lot of zooming and whooshing.

Sabrina Dean Somehow, though, it feels as if the film was on the verge of being extraordinary, but ended up teetering on the edge before sliding backwards with a bit of failed fruition.
Barry Ronge A brilliant cast and special effects sustain the magic.
Ivan Sadler While not being nearly the best Harry Potter film to date, it is still of a very high standard — go watch it.
Paul Arendt David Yates' film has the misfortune to be based on the dullest book in the series so far.
Chad Greene Aside from IMAX 3D, there's not much cinematic magic in fifth film
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix still has much of the enchantment of the earlier films, but Harry no longer has as much joy.
Jason Anderson The action scenes are deftly handled and only the meandering middle section shows signs of franchise fatigue.
James Berardinelli With its fifth cinematic outing, the Harry Potter film series has ascended to another level.
Peter Travers Order of the Phoenix, the best of the series so far, has the laughs, the jitters and the juice to make even nonbelievers wild about Harry.
Tomatometer An entertaining installment that captures the dark mood of the novel.
