Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)

Harry’s intriguing inner demons that become a refreshing character-focused theme here instigate Radcliffe’s first standout turn of the series (“I just feel so angry, all the time”), as he leads the cast through a juicy rebellion-tinged plot (Staunton shines as the distasteful antagonist) marked by a couple well-crafted montages. On the down side, the final act is a bit lame (the spell-casting action still feels awkward), its climactic duel aside, and the prophecy bit is puzzlingly breezed over.
