Cast overview, first billed only:
Viktor Krum (as Stanislav Ianevski)


Harry's fourth year at Hogwarts is about to start and he is enjoying the summer vacation with his friends. They get the tickets to The Quidditch World Cup Final but after the match is over, people dressed like Lord Voldemort's 'Death Eaters' set a fire to all the visitors' tents, coupled with the appearance of Voldemort's symbol, the 'Dark Mark' in the sky, which causes a frenzy across the magical community. That same year, Hogwarts is hosting 'The Triwizard Tournament', a magical tournament between three well-known schools of magic : Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. The contestants have to be above the age of 17, and are chosen by a magical object called Goblet of Fire. On the night of selection, however, the Goblet spews out four names instead of the usual three, with Harry unwittingly being selected as the Fourth Champion. Since the magic cannot be reversed, Harry is forced to go with it and brave three exceedingly difficult tasks. Written by Soumitra

why... why... WHYY!!!
22 November 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First of all... WHY!!!

Secondly I found this movie to be a great disappointment. I just don't know where to begin. So lets start from the beginning shall we?

first there was a harry potter book series written by J.K Rowling that was good, children and adults all over the word rejoiced. Then in comes Hollywood and says: Hi we want to make movies about this "Harry Potter" we have heard so much about. And Rowling is flattered to no end and says yes.

First movie: great to see Harry potter on the big screen, all right movie

Second movie: begins to get darker, you love it, I love it, we all love it.

Third movie: SLAM DUNK. They followed the plot of the book and made some "changes" for example casual clothing after school hours that just makes it feel so much more alive.

And now we have *drums* Number four: WHAT THE *BLEEP*, although I must admit I cried... allot! From the beginning to the bitter end! it was horrid, it almost felt like Hollywood was taking a big dump right on my copy of the book. I have a feeling that the chaps in Hollywood said: - Read! READ!? You want US to actually READ the book before we make a movie!? Preposterous!

at the beginning of the movie i just sat there with an uneasy feeling in my stomach because everything was going waaay to fast. and the usual "slow start" was no where to be seen. They just jumped right into all of it. Then what was up with that ridicules entrance into the great hall! I almost puked right there. And some of the later action sequences like 1st task WAY to overblown, in the book Harry just breezed trough it.

but okay I can almost of forgive that, after all it IS Hollywood. But what I can't forgive is the Butchering of Characters in this movie! And the victims are:

Dumbledore: in the book he's the calm, somewhat silly rock that hogwarts rests upon, in this movie he's well lets say not that calm. He shouts, grabs, maybe even pinches and bites. and I can't shake thee feeling that he is a mean drunk some of the time.

And then Krum... ooh poor krum, he became the teen movie Jock. in the book he is insecure, somewhat frail, clumsy on the ground, quite intelligent and ugly. in the movie he has an Kelvin kline model with an ego the size of Hagrid and so stupid Crab and Goyle seems like Einstein in comparison.

AND there is not even a whisper about fleur being 1/4 veela. I mean COMMON! How hard can it be to fit that in!

just to name the biggest.

The thing this movie lacks that number three is filled with is: Soul, character interaction, character building, and sense of details.

So if you want to see some kind of cool action scenes, and special effects for 308 000 000 dollars, be my guest. But if you want Harry potter. take a cup of coco, a blanket, light a fire and read the book. because this ladies and gentlemen is NOT Harry potter!
