Synopsis: The Fifth movie in the series based on the novels by J.K. Rowling. After their warning about the Lord Voldemort, Harry and Dumbledore are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts.

Review: Harry is not safe. Danger is all around him and with his extreme volatile temperament, he meets his opposition with force. These actions of his causes some people that he knows to get hurt in the process. There is a conspiracy to remove Harry from the fight against Lord Voldemort. The Goal is to isolate him from everyone else so that he is not a threat to Voldemort. If Harry lets his arrogance and temperament get the best of him, he will fall into this sinister trap. Harry will need to drop his pride and realized that he must work with his team, as a cohesive unit in order to survive the coming assault. Snape’s knowledge as a former death eater is more important now than ever. His special training is vital for Harry to have the ability to defend himself against Voldemort‘s mental attacks.

Harry learns some very important life lessons in this film. If there is no way to succeed, you need to make one on your own. Harry and his team are evolving. They make their own group and train themselves rather than waiting for some one to do it for them. They strengthen each other’s weaknesses. If someone’s skill level is low, the team trains with that wizard so that he or she can get better. Doing this creates an opposition force against Voldemort. Harry is no longer just a student, he becomes a leader, an expert, and a teacher. For Harry, its do or die.

Harry can only keep going by adapting to the critical changes that come upon his life in the most devastating ways. Sacrifices are made for Harry and his team to survive against the forces of Voldemort. above of all Harry must face the darker aspects of his personality. He must stay focused and not stray away from the path of light or he will be the catalyst of darkness Lord Voldemort will use to gain a significant advantage against the forces of light.

This one is more of a slower build than the other films. The plot is straight forward with the previous movies. It just seems like the other films has more to offer than this one. Harry is still learning more and more but when is this going to come to an end? The creators used elements that are typically predictable to push the story forward. This movie is just passable.
