Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)


Harry finds himself mysteriously selected as an under-aged competitor in a dangerous tournament between three schools of magic. (IMDb)
The script awkwardly attempts to juggle its new additions (foreign wizards, a school dance) with an already jam-packed line-up and drops the ball, hastily wrapping up or even discarding plot points (the final twist takes seconds and Crouch Sr. is left in the forest), whilst its secret antagonist is left mostly unexplained (Tennant’s overacting doesn’t make up for it). There are still lots of enjoyable bits here (see the thankfully well-paced graveyard scene) but the whole is a tad too messy.
6.5/10 (Alright)
