Shortly after his reunion with his best friends, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), Harry is introduced to yet another Defense Against the Dark Arts… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Goblet of Fire is more effective in these smaller, more intimate moments than in the bloated bombast of its larger set pieces."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Goblet has enough sense of real kids maturing and believably facing problems to cast some genuine spells."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Newell vividly conjures up a world fraught with real danger."
‑ , Total Film
"Very boring, recycled from the previous installments, and immensely underwhelming."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The Goblet of Fire is a more mature story and its young stars prove they have the acting skills to grow with their characters."
‑ Julian Roman, MovieWeb
"It's downright scary how good this movie is."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Goblet is deliciously dark, wickedly funny and superbly mounted."
‑ , Time Out
"As young wizard Harry Potter continues to mature, so too does this exciting fantasy franchise."
‑ Sloan Freer, Radio Times
"Wait a minute. Sequels aren't supposed to get better."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Easily the best Harry Potter film so far."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"A marked disappointment after Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, this fourth installment in the franchise is a 157-minute holding pattern."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Whenever it hits its stride, it's a well-acted, vividly executed, full-speed-ahead special-effects extravaganza that puts as much bang as possible into every remaining scene."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Goblet again serves up a delicious who's who of British acting, with hilarious contributions from newcomers Brendan Gleeson as instructor Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody and Miranda Richardson as nosy reporter Rita Skeeter."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"A huge cast, plenty of special effects and Harry gets a battering -- pretty much as you'd expect."
‑ , Film4
"The story is engrossing, but Mike Newell's adaption is a little too dull and by-the-numbers following Alfonso Cuaron's visual tour-de-force."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
