The first review for the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie has crossed the wires. The movie premiere today in Tokyo and the reviewer gives the movie three out of five stars.
The chief problem, though, is not really a fault of the film but the near universal Potter-literacy of its prospective audience. Most Potter fans are now laser-focused on the release of the climactic seventh book in three weeks' time and its promise to bring together the countless loose ends.
This editor would like to point out that my rating for the movie would not be so low and we at HPANA will post our reviews on July 11th.
UPDATE: Yet other reviews here and here of the movie have appeared online, which are much more favorable than the one above.
UPDATE: II: Here is a review from The Hollywood Reporter and one from The Sun from the UK.
