    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    The movie, in other words, belongs solidly to Mr. Radcliffe, Mr. Grint and Ms. Watson, who have grown into nimble actors, capable of nuances of feeling that would do their elders p...

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Harry: You're brilliant, Hermione. Truly.
      Hermione: Actually, I'm highly logical, which allows me to look past the extraneous detail and perceive clearly that which others overlook.

    • Moody: For those of you who haven't taken Polyjuice Potion before, fair warning: It tastes like goblin piss.

    • Scrimgeour: (addressing the press) These are dark times, there is no denying. Our world has, perhaps, faced no greater threat than it does today. But I say this to our citizenry: We, ever your servants, will continue to defend your liberty and repel the forces that seek to take it from you. You're ministry remains strong.
