This is one of the best movies in the series.

This is certainly my favorite of all the Harry Potter movies. I watched it three times and still laughed at Filch.

My favorite character is definately umbridge, they did a wonderful job on her. Bravo!

I just wish they'd done a better job on the magic, the battle at the ministry was mainly people turning into smoke, like, why didn't Sirius just turn into smoke to avoid falling through the tapestry? Whatever. They still did the best job on this of all the movies.

This is one of my favorite movies of them all. They got a great young actress to play Luna Lovegood and the creation of the Order of the Phoenix. It is also the start of better CGI - which leads to an amazing climax battle scene at the end - that although not true to the book - was great to see and played out wonderfully.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth movie based on J.K. Rowling’s novel. This year will be different for Harry because at the end of last year he came face to face with Voldemort. Most witches and wizards do not believe Harry, but Dumbledore does. In order to protect Harry, his friends, and anyone who does not support Voldemort, Dumbledore brings back The Order of the Phoenix. At school, Harry learns that the new defence against the dark arts teacher is Professor Umbridge, a government worker sent to spy on the staff and Harry and his friends. When Harry learns that she is not going to teach them how to defend themselves, he starts his own club to teach people to fight, Dumbledore’s Army. If you enjoyed reading this novel I would recommend watching this movie, although there are a few plot differences. I would not recommend a younger audience watch this movie as it is very dark. If you like the other Harry Potter movies you will love The Order of the Phoenix. I rate this movie five out of five stars. @SapphireReads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

the book for order of the phoenix was way better than any of the Harry Potter movies put together.CGI is AWFUL.I did like the lady they picked to play Umbridge though.And the actors they picked for Harry, Ron and Hermione were okay while they were young,but when they got older they were not very good. In my opinion this movie was really bad.

Amazing movie, i should watch this a thousand times

Why are there so many comments saying that people don't like this movie?? I don't understand. WHY DO YOU NOT LIKE IT? It's still pretty awesome even if it's not the best one in the series.

Umbridge *is* really annoying, though.

The first 4 films had their charm. This... well it didn't. The characters like Umbridge, Lucius were great. Harry, Ron and Hermione and Hogwarts kids, just fell flat. They gave no more then what they were in the previous films. The CGI was awful, even worse than chamber of secrets, prisoner, and goblet.
It was rambled on. It felt lost.

This movie does not do the book justice. SO much of the character development that happens within the book does not happen on screen. The movie also feels a bit rushed with no motivations given for much of what happens on screen. The actors turn in another solid performance on this one, but certain scenes lack the impact that they should have because the movie does not take the time to tie individuals together.
