Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire plot

"Dark And Difficult Times Lie Ahead."

Harry goes to the Quidditch World Cup with his friends Ron and Hermione. Unfortunately, this event backfires when a group of Voldemort's followers, also known as Death Eaters, parade through the field. Fortunately there are no injuries or deaths, but the chance that Voldemort will return is increasing... At Hogwarts there is another event; the Triwizard Tournament. In it, three champions from three different wizarding schools must complete three dangerous tasks to win the Triwizard Trophy. These three champions are chosen by the Goblet of Fire. He chooses Fleur Delacour from Beauxbatons, Viktor Krum from Durmstrang and Carlo Kannewasser from Hogwarts. However, the Goblet of Fire spits out another name; Harry Potter...

Another step back to square one, because the entire Triwizard Tournament has to be crammed into one film. In doing so, the director loses sight of important nuances and too much screen time is lost on side issues. For example, the Yule Ball fuss gets more attention than, say, the sudden death of Barty Crouch Sr. or even the Quidditch World Cup final. This remains unclear to the less 'learned' Harry Potter fan, but the diehard also wants to see those essential moments filmed. That's why the absence of Dobby is such a loss.

The Tournament does offer a good change from the traditional school year, and as the CGI improves every year, we get to see some spectacular scenes. Only you will be hungry again during the last assignment, because a literal adaptation of the book would have provided an extra large dose of magic. The maze scene therefore feels like a necessary stepping stone to the finale, which is no less stunning.

Although Gambon was a great replacement for the role of Dumbledore in the previous film, he constantly maintains a nervous and aggressive tone in this part. Very un-Dumbledore-like, and that can be attributed to the direction. Brendan Gleeson is neatly cast as Mad-Eye. The performances of the three main characters remain somewhat superficial. Watson grows, Grint delivers a portion of adolescent behavior instead of comedy, Radcliffe remains a bit awkward.

In short, a few missed opportunities. It could have been darker, more magical, more mysterious.

While reviewing the entire Harry Potter series (+ Fantastic Beasts), I've come to the part that I've always thought had a good dose of moderation. And I mainly mean how the movie came out, because I loved the book.

What really bothered me about this part was how Dumbledore wasn't so much Dumbledore, I've been paying special attention now and really in every scene he looks grumpy or yells again. In any case, everyone is yelling, but around this film, the directions must be from Mike Newell. Well I can't take that director seriously at all, he really doesn't know who the characters are. Where I previously liked Voldemort's return I have now changed my mind and I even found that scene quite rushed and Voldemort is much too busy and manic where in the book he is much cooler and more psychopath .

And I had to laugh at how little time there is between the Second Task and the Third Task, they showed one day after the Second Task (so everything from the conversation between Crouch Sr. to the scene of Harry with Snape was on the same day). ) and then straight to the final. But with Goblet of Fire it seems the most that Harry Potter would be much more suitable for a television series like Game of Thrones, because what often makes it good (and what part 2 & part 3 did much better in my opinion) are the moments of lessons or the everyday school activities where you can see Harry as an ordinary schoolboy (and which makes for the magical moments).

So I lower my voice by a tight 3.0 and that while I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, but this part just lacks too much and especially atmosphere.

I always thought this was the movie/book with the least story. 1 or other match is quite a standard given. In itself it is not a bad film and it does get the best out of it but somehow it is a bit too structured while Harry Potter usually learns and unravels secrets along the way. The ending is strong so I'm going to give 4* anyway.
