Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.”

Harry Potter’s summer before fourth year is somewhat eventful – a trip to the Quidditch World Cup with the Weasleys and Hermione ends in horror as Death Eaters attack the campsite.

Back at school, excitement is in the air – Hogwarts is to play host to the Triwizard Tournament, an event pitting a chosen student of Hogwarts, Durmstrang and Beauxbatons against one another. Entry is limited to students over the age of seventeen, and Harry is more than happy to watch from the sidelines, but events conspire against him and his name is drawn as the fourth Triwizard Champion. With mermaids, dragons and mazes to conquer, will Harry survive his fourth year?

Reviews

“Daniel Radcliffe is coming along nicely as the young hero, though it’s up for grabs whether the teen actor will have the chest hair to face the horrors in store for Harry.” – Time

“Altered emphasis requires more of Daniel Radcliffe, and he rises to the occasion with a more dimensional and nuanced performance as Harry. Having now passed decisively into adolescence, he suggests for the first time there actually may be an actor in him, as he seems more aware of, and responsive to, everything going on around him.” – Variety

“Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, as Harry and his best mate, Ron Weasley, finally hold their own with the best actors in Britain — Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, and, added for this film, Brendan Gleeson, Miranda Richardson and Ralph Fiennes.” – Movie Nation

Radcliffe has improved dramatically as an actor (evident in the encounter with Voldemort) and has gained better mastery over the lighter aspects of the role. He’s got an especially funny moment with the wailing ghost Moaning Myrtle (Shirley Henderson, reprising her role from Chamber of Secrets).” – Metro Weekly

It would be a major gamble to give the final moments, which leave Harry an emotional wreck, to a young star – if that young star were anyone other than Radcliffe, who handles the material with remarkable ease.” – eFilmCritic.com
