4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 5 Jun 2006

This review is from: Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire (2 Disc Edition) [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Although the third film still remains my favourite by far, this certainly delivered as far as I'm concerned. Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort was wonderfully scary, Brendan Gleeson was surprsingly funny as the paranoid Mad Eye Moody and put in a star performance. The Weasley twins are more refined, David Tennant was delightfully freaky as Barty Crouch and Miranda Richardson was well cast for Rita Skeeter as were Stanislav Ianevski as Krum, Pedja Bjelac as Karkaroff and Robert Pattinson as Diggory. The special effects were fantastic (to my untrained eye anyway) and although much of the story had to be cut out, I can't say that I particularly noticed or was too bothered by it, the story seemed to fit together just fine. The leads have certainly improved yet again and the older veteran actors; Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith put in great performances as usual with a welcome return to Jason Isaacs as the deliciously evil Lucius Malfoy. My only bone of contention (surprisingly) is the way they did Sirius' appearance in the fire and that his appearance was sadly brief. Admittedly, I wasn't sure how I felt about the film after the first viewing but a second and a third look have made sure that it has well and truly grown on me. Putting aside that much of the book has been cut, what you have been left with is still a very coherent mix of suspense, fear and humour that makes one thoroughly enjoyable film.
