Our Score
As young wizard Harry Potter continues to mature, so too does this exciting fantasy franchise. This fourth instalment continues the dark and gritty atmosphere initiated by Prisoner of Azkaban, offering genuine scares alongside the customary magical mayhem. Now aged 14, Daniel Radcliffe's Potter faces the ultimate challenge after being mysteriously entered into the Triwizard Tournament - a prestigious affair in which representatives of three schools of wizardry compete in a series of life-threatening tasks. The imaginative tournament scenes more than compensate for Radcliffe's anaemic performance, featuring, among other treats, a brilliant CGI dragon and creepy mermaid creatures. Like Alfonso CuarĂ³n before him, British director Mike Newell really stamps his mark on the movie, making Hogwarts seem like the most fabulous school ever. However, his vision is perhaps too frightening - and lengthy - for the under-12s (hence the higher certificate), with a pupil's murder and Ralph Fiennes as Potter's evil nemesis, Lord Voldemort, adding particular intensity to events.

Summary

Adolescent wizard Harry is unexpectedly chosen to represent Hogwarts School in a prestigious magical tournament, despite being legally too young to enter. Along with charming sixth-year student Cedric Diggory, Harry is chosen to represent Hogwarts in the contest, with champions of two other magical academies visiting the school to face deadly monsters in a series of death-defying challenges. Meanwhile, the followers of the dreaded Lord Voldemort plot to restore their master to the land of the living. Fourth instalment of the fantasy saga, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Brendan Gleeson and Robert Pattinson.
