Harry Pot­ter And The Or­der Of The Phoenix

Nine, 8.30pm, PG ( 2007)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

Storm clouds gather over the world’s most fa­mous boy wizard in the fifth film to be adapted from J. K. Rowl­ing’s lit­er­ary saga. Not only must griev­ing Harry ( Daniel Rad­cliff e, above) deal with the usual teenage angst, a grow­ing sense of iso­la­tion and an epic show­down with his evil neme­sis Lord Volde­mort ( Ralph Fi­ennes), but – per­haps just as scary – he faces his first kiss. It’s lucky trusty side­kicks Ron ( Ru­pert Grint) and Hermione ( Emma Wat­son) are around for moral sup­port. New di­rec­tor David Yates does a re­spectable job of keep­ing Rowl­ing’s in­creas­ingly darker tale on course, while Imelda Staunton is exquisitely dis­lik­able as Dum­ble­dore’s usurper at Hog­warts.
