Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

With this being the first of the series that I’d be seeing for the first time on the big-big screen, I can’t say I was expecting that much to blow me away and in that I wasn’t disappointed. Maybe it was the fact we went to see the last showing (23:15 start) or maybe because I was quite tired, but the film felt very much like an in-betweener. It was rather over-long and to be honest could be summed up in one sentence – “The real return of the dark lord” or from the perspective of HP himself “How I learnt my destiny and its connection to the dark lord he-who-must-not-be-named”. With a name containing ‘and the Order of the Phoenix’ I was kindof expecting large-scale magical battles powered by magical birds, yet the order seemed to consist of a small group of misfits who meet in a dingy house to talk about what to not do next…
