Empire by

It won't win new fans, but as Potter movies go, this is the most filmic of the lot, suspenseful and action-packed.


Newsweek by David Ansen

The storytelling seems occasionally disjointed, but more important, for all the special-effects wizardry, that touch of film magic never surfaces.


New York Magazine (Vulture) by David Edelstein

For all its portentousness, this is the best Harry Potter picture yet. In some ways, it improves on J.K. Rowling’s novel, which is punishingly protracted and builds to a climactic wand-off better seen than read.


Seattle Post-Intelligencer by William Arnold

Yet, as good as it is in so many ways, there's no getting around the fact that this briefest Harry and first directed by an unknown filmmaker (David Yates) is the least substantial of the bunch.
