Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - He's BaaackSummer vacation hasn't exactly been as relaxing for Harry Potter as most kids. He's been attacked by dementors, he's threatened with expulsion from Hogwarts, he sees Voldemort every time he closes his eyes and the worst part is the Ministry of Magic doesn't believe him that the dark lord is back!
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Follow the LeaderAs if having the most powerful dark wizard after you isn't bad enough, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge, is pushing Ministry of Magic propaganda by denying the existence of Voldemort. She's also forbidden students from learning magic to protect themselves. So, Ron and Hermoine convince Harry to rally the troops and take training into their own hands.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Fight to the FinishMassive battles against powerful villains is never an easy task - but Harry is tired of being pushed around by He Who Shall Not Be Named. He's willing to risk everything to ensure the safety of those he loves, like his BFF's Ron and Hermoine, his godfather Sirius Black and - of course - his new love interest Cho Chang. Will Harry prevail? Or will Voldemort be too much for him to handle?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Bottom LineThe Order of the Phoenix is an important part of the bigger Harry Potter picture but as a stand alone film it isn't the best one. But even though it's not as action-packed or suspenseful as previous movies, doesn't mean it's not worth checking out. Order of the Phoenix will definitely leave you craving more of the legendary wizard - only a year and a half to wait for the next installment!
