When Harry Potter's name emerges from the Goblet of Fire, he becomes a competitor in a grueling battle for glory among three wizarding schools - the Triwizard Tournament. But since Harry never submitted his name for the Tournament, who did? Now Harry must confront a deadly dragon, fierce water demons and an enchanted maze only to find himself in the cruel grasp of He Who Must Not Be Named. In this fourth film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, everything changes as Harry, Ron and Hermione leave childhood forever and take on challenges greater than anything they could have imagined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire The Film: The Beginning Of The Terror All the difficulties I had with the book are of course present here in the film. And it is all compounded by squishing over 700 pages of J.K. into what really should have been two movies. It is Harry Potter, so I still love it, but Goblet is in competition with Chamber as my least favourite of the series. So much of my thoughts and feelings regarding the movie is mirrored from my comments on the book. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has a beautiful beginning and ending, filled with the appropriate dread and dripping evil, all to scare us into fear beyond fear. Voldemort is plotting his comeback, and then Voldemort achieves his comeback. Bookends of terror to compel us to keep watching. To put it bluntly, I loved both ends of this film. But then we have the middle. I have no intention of rehashing all my misgivings with the Triwizard tournament, but even dramatized these events hold very little interest for me. Also, the first challenge with the dragons went from being the exciting journey of Harry mastering the advanced magic of Accio to a special effects laden overblown zip around Hogwarts. Kind of really disappointed with that choice of story elements. This I believe is the root of my problems here. After the pleasant beauty of director Alfonso Cuaron on Azkaban, all the grace and inventiveness and style vanished. The dial was pushed on the wayback machine to the preteen Harry movies. Those films were fine for what they had to do, and worked for the age frame involved, but the time is now for the more serious story. J.K. had plans for everything to channel upwards as the characters naturally progressed, and this film partially betrays this notion. Thankfully, Goblet is the last vestige of this problem, with the series getting back on track with the next entry. One massive nitpick, an aberration occurring only here, is Harry's gangly freaky hair from hell. Did no one notice how awful this looked? Distracting at all times, this attempt to make Harry looked rugged (my guess) backfires on all levels. This stuff matters Hollywood. While it may sound like I despise Goblet, I do not. All of the Voldemort scenes created chills, just as they should. The final battle tells us everything we need to know for what comes later. Voldemort is a bully and cruel beyond measure. This lopsided fight can be identified with by all, since bullying is unfortunately an universal constant. Harry survives by the power of his bravery and because of the love he receives. A touching ending in the book replicated here masterfully. Edge of my seat every scene. With this leg of the journey complete, the war will start soon. But first Harry has to take on some more vile bullies. Scoopriches

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Take the Money & Run. That's what the directors, producers, and screenwriters have done The previous movies, especially the first, were very good adaptations of the books. The movie adaptation of the Goblet of Fire, however, is very poorly done. It's a major disappointment. It appears that either the director, producer(s), or screenwriter(s)(or all of them) were not up to the task of making a good movie or were simply intent on cashing in on the financial success of the previous movies and books by simply going through the minimal motions to release an "adequate" movie, knowing very well that Potter fans will pay to see and buy the movie regardless of its deficiencies. The movie does provide impressive glitzy special effects and the actors continue to perform well. However, the movie corrupts and deviates from the theme and storyline found in the books and previous movies. The movie also has the central characters in the movie behaving "out of character" from the thousands of pages that have been used to develop their characters and personalities (and previous movies, too); for example, this movie has Dumbledore running around ranting and appearing to act impulsively. Anyone who has carefully read the books knows that the essence of Dumbledore is: calmness, thoughtfulness, and a cool logical mind (like Sherlock Holmes). It makes it appear that those involved in the production of the movie either don't care about being true to the story or characters, or have never read the books, which in either case indicate this movie should have been titled "The New Changed (Fast Money Maker) Version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (loosely based on some book by "JK what's her name"). The movie should bring the original story (the one found in the book) to life; instead, this movie sucked the life out of the original story and substituted a vaguely similar but flawed story in its place. This movie should and could have been very good. Instead, the one chance to produce a great movie of a good book has been squandered by what appears to be the rush to cash in on a successful franchise. Please do two things: first, if you absolutely must buy this movie, don't buy it new; I'll be selling mine at half price on , along with many others. I don't want to encourage the production of poor movies. Second, go the Harry Potter website and let JK Rowland know you want the next movie to be true to the story and characters she worked so hard to develop

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goodbye Kids! Hello Guys! This was the first time I watched the Harry Potter movie that made my eyes water at the end of it. Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry did a realistic acting job in showing pain, shock and frustration over something that he was not able to control or stop. There were other brilliant actors who contributed to the success of this movie such as Professor Allistor Moody and Lord Voldemort, who appeared first time with a face. Ralph Fienes (Voldemort) was a very convincing actor, playing his evil role as the dark wizard. I think that J.K. Rowling will be happy to see that actors gave justice to the characters that she created in her book. If there's one actor who I think did not give justice to the character it would be the character of Viktor Krum. The actor rarely talked and he was a little bit serious in his role. This fourth movie marked the beginning of a teenager and adult theme. The movie had teenage scenes and dialogues, where children of this age would love. It was also heavier and there were some frightening scenes that children under the age of ten might find really scary. Therefore, I can say goodbye Kids! Hello Guys! The use of sound effects, sceneries, and make-up was great! The director and the writers were able to exclude unimportant scenes from the book and included the important episodes without offending the writer. Even if you do not read the books you can easily follow the movie, however, it will certainly be helpful and clearer for the viewers if they had previous knowledge of the HP story. The movie revolved around the triwizard tournament; joining in the contest, winning, the loyalty of Harry and his friends, the pain of losing, and discovery of being deceived by people you trusted. These things will certainly give you reasons to like the movie, not to mention that this movie will make you smile, will make you angry, and as I have said will make you cry. Therefore, if you like movie with humour, action, suspense, and drame, then Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Harry Potter has to grow up a fair bit in this one! It's no doubt my favourite movie yet. I'd recommend at least watching the other movies before seeing this one, preferably reading the books, as there are some parts that make more sense if you've know and remember the background first. It has some pretty scary parts so it might not be appropriate for some young children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire While I don't share awsome's enthusiam for this film; it was very entertaining. I must credit new director Mike Newell for the overwhelming task of adapting J.K. Rowling's 2nd largest book into this film. It has great special effects and a nail-biting sequence envolving a dragon. If your a fan of the books (and even if your not), you will enjoy this riping good adventure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire DVD This is a totally AWESOME video. I love it. The actors do an amazing job of portraying the characters (Emma Watson is a personal favorite). I would have liked a bit more of the smaller plots included, but realize this is impossible. The director was going to make it into 2 movies as it was. I went and saw it twice in theaters, it was that good. Totally worth buying. I can't wait until it comes out on dvd!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was good, but not excellent It was a really good movie, but slightly dissapointing at the same time. I was really looking forward to seeing Bill and Charlie as well as the Dursly's, but none of them were in there.
