Well made fantasy film with so many good actors it’s hard to pick the best. The production is great and all effects are believable and even accepted without question! It’s a bit difficult to review the Harry Potter movies now as they are all so well made but with slightly different ways to deal with the Daniel, Rupert and Emma.

In this case it’s a darker plot, not so many other kids involved and some points that hint at mortality. Certainly a lot darker use of magic and monsters than before so maybe growing up along side the main cast.

Michael is a brilliant change to the Dumbledore character and is surprisingly active, bringing a little more involvement although that’s maybe from the script which is lively although a bit moody.

Still good to sit down of an evening with this one but I’m finding these a lot more fun as a boxset than I did on the original viewings – I think I caught this one in the cinema originally. The story joins up more if you watch them back to back so perhaps not so good individually if you haven’t seen any of the others.

DVD Extras: None. Well, a gallery and text about the cast. Nothing great.
