Awesome Product! Great value!
With all the hype of the release of the final installment in the series, I started the movies over from the beginning. I watched my DVDs and quickly realized I didn't have them all. I jumped on eBay and this was my first search. When I received the DVD, I watched it immediately. This is probably one of my favorite installments in the series. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I strongly recommend this DVD for any fan of Harry Potter. I promise you will enjoy it. There are some new spells and you get the feeling that love may be blooming for a Harry and his companions. A MUST SEE!

6th HIGHEST GROSSING FILM OF ALL TIME, GROSSING $938,464,961 IN THE YEAR 2007
As Harry grows up before our eyes on film, a little bit of the innocence is lost and is replaced by more adult themes, and scarier villains. Nonetheless, this video, the 5th of 7, left me wanting to see more Harry Potter, and more of his adventures. The film begins with Harry Potter and his cousin Dudley mysteriously attacked by two Dementors. In turn Harry is forced to cast the Patronus charm to repel the Dementors, but when the Ministry of Magic detects what he has done (the underage practice of wizardry) he is expelled from Hogwarts. He begins to have horrible nightmares depicting Lord Voldemort's return. Harry is awoken and taken to headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, a secret organization founded by Dumbledore. Members of the Order, including Harry's Godfather Sirius Black, reveal that under the Ministry's influence, The Daily Prophet has launched a smear campaign against anyone who claims the Dark Lord has returned, leaving Harry feeling alone and isolated from the other wizards.
Dumbledore helps to clear Harry's name is cleared of all charges, and he is allowed to return to Hogwarts. Upon entering his fifth year of school, Harry learns that the Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge has appointed a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher: Dolores Umbridge, a Senior Ministry official who refuses to teach practical magic to her students, out of fear that Dumbledore will organize his own personal wizard army. As her grip on the school increases, Ron and Hermione aid Harry in forming a secret defense group, calling themselves "Dumbledore's Army".
During the year, Harry envisions mysterious scenes in his sleep, including a dangerous attack upon Arthur Weasley in the Department of Mysteries. Fearing there may be a connection between Voldemort and Harry's mind, Professor Snape immediately initiates Occlumency lessons to close his mind from the Dark Lord's influence.
Promoted to High Inquisitor, Umbridge, Filch and her loyal Inquisitorial Squad, including Draco Malfoy uncover Dumbledore's Army after interrogating one of the students, Cho Chang with whom Harry had developed intense feelings for. Dumbledore is questioned and makes an impressive escape as Fudge orders for his arrest. With Dumbledore gone, Umbridge becomes the new Headmistress whose sinister dominRead full review

A Great Effort for the Director and Screenwriter
I've been a fan of the Harry Potter phenomenon since a little after the release of Book 4 (Goblet of Fire). The series is, in my opinion, unparalleled in storytelling and dramatic effect.
I think that you'll find the HP movie fans to be in one of three categories -- (1) the purists, who believe that the movies should be nothing more than a dramatization of the Rowling text; (2) the liberalists, who have no problem whatsoever with a complete rewriting of the text to make a more dramatic film; (3) the in-betweenists, who feel that as long as the spirit of the text and most major plotlines are followed, a little artistic departure is acceptable and necessary.
I fall more into the third category. While I appreciate very much the text of the books, I realize that translating such text into films is a very difficult project indeed and demands some artistic license.
We have, up through this particular film (OotP), had four different directors with four very different styles and attitudes toward remaining true to the text. I believe that in this film, David Yates did a tremendous job of translating a monstrous book into a great film, while remaining as true to the text as possible in just over 2-1/2 hours. I'm greatly excited that he will be staying on for Half-Blood Prince, and at the time of this writing is even anticipated to close out the series with the directorship of Deathly Hallows.
If you're a fan of this great book -- go ahead and buy the DVD. I wasn't disappointed, and I don't believe that you will be either.Read full review

Another HP movie
I must have fallen asleep for a few years because I missed this installment of the HP series. I was watching the next one and suddenly knew I had missed something. If you don't watch this one the next one has many gaps. Most of the movies are good stand alones but these last couple have taken the excitement of discovery and moved it into Hi I'm Harry Potter and I'm a brat. I'm starting to think about rooting for Malfroy as he seems to be having some real childhood issues of discovering who he is. Plus I'm tired of trying to guess if professor Snape is good or bad, choose allready! I'm a HP fan and glad to watch the movies, I havn't read the books so don't have a base for that.
