Storyline

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

Trivia

Costume designer Jany Temime considered Hermione's dress for the Yule Ball as the most important, comparing it to that of Cinderella. The design of the dress was changed several times, before the designers were satisfied with the results. Emma Watson was very careful not to wear it more than necessary, because she was afraid that she would wreck it. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 28 mins) When he has emerged from the bath water after listening to the egg, Harry is sitting with Myrtle and his hair changes repeatedly between shots, going from completely smooth to having a bit of hair sticking straight out on his right side. See more »

Hello... plot? Are you under the invisible blanket?
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My girlfriend is a huge Harry Potter fan, so she eventually roped me into watching this cinematic train wreck.

Let's start with what I liked, first. Solid opening scene, good special effects, interesting fantasy elements, and sometimes funny dialog. Now I ask fans to hold their breath. I did not like this movie.

After the first quarter of the film, where it has been pointed out with a BIG NEON SIGN that the big bad uber-evil Wizard that everyone is so afraid of they refuse to speak his name, is returning from pseudo-death. Then, for some psychotic reason, the movie decides to forget about this imminent threat to the universe and instead show us poorly written, badly acted, and horribly uninteresting high school soap opera complete with a freaking prom. Maybe this is a hit with the middle school crowd, but even still, you can tell the actors themselves are thinking "what the hell IS this about?" EVENTUALLY, everyone remembers (a touch too late) that the evil "you-know-who" seems to be making his way back to life through foreshadowing and not-so-subtle hints, but now we're caught up in a life or death competition where Harry Potter has been illegally entered, and set up basically as bait to lure out Voldemort and/or his henchmen. Well, when the big bad DOES finally make his move, the powerful Wizards completely fail to notice, or even remember, that Voldemort has taken the bait. A confrontation between Harry and his nemesis ensues, whereupon the young hero through the power of love from his dead parents, or some such nonsense, just barely makes it away with the corpse of a fallen Hogwarts student. So what happens now that everyone has absolute and undeniable proof that the most evil force ever has returned? They go on summer vacation. Right, nipping off on holiday, I'm sure he won't destroy the world until next term. From start to finish, this movie had me on the edge of my tolerance. I'm being generous with five out of ten here, but only because I feel there is the POTENTIAL for a good movie in here. Someone just needs to slap around the director and scrounge the cutting room floor.
