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.

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.

Shortest movie; longest book.

This movie is good and exciting. Also a bit sad... I love the Harry Potter series.

As far as the movies go, this one is the best in the series.
Movies are art in themselves, Children. Stop trying to compare them to the books. Your lives will be all the sweeter after you learn that lesson. (After Warner Bros got themselves a director who understood that, too, the movies improved.)
Order of the Phoenix is cohesive art, that doesn't rely on the book to hold it together. The scene in which Harry realizes he already has everything he needs to defeat Voldemort is pure cinematographic magic.

I've read all the books except for the cursed child, and so far, the Order of the Phoenix was the worst. The 1-4th books were really good, but starting from the 5th it started to really slow down. :(
