The best one yet.
Newell puts his own stamp on the franchise and delivers the best Potter movie yet filmed.
It's not until Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire that a film has successfully re-created the sense of stirring magical adventure and engaged, edge-of-your-seat excitement that has made the books such an international phenomenon.
Wall Street Journal
The studio, like plucky Harry, passes with flying colors. The new one, directed by Mike Newell from another astute script by Mr. Kloves, is even richer and fuller, as well as dramatically darker. It's downright scary how good this movie is.
New York Daily News
The darkest, most thrilling entry yet in the movie franchise.
The film is more violent, less cute than the others, but the action is not the mindless destruction of a video game; it has purpose, shape and style.
Chicago Tribune
J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter just keeps growing up. So do the Potter movies, in size, in ambition and in visual splendor - and with increasingly stunning results.
With the cast getting looser and the mind games kinkier, it's hard to resist.
Offers a brew of wondrous chimera combined with the wonders of human nature.
It's hard to beat the last movie, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," and this film is not better, but it has much to recommend it.
Philadelphia Inquirer
Goblet of Fire, fourth in the fantasy franchise, is the most fun and the most fraught with conflict.
Entertainment Weekly
Kids may be appropriately terrified, but to this overgrown Potter fan, Voldemort, the Darth Vader of the black arts, was a heck of a lot scarier when you couldn't see him.
