Movie Summary

Mike Newell

Harry Potter is stunned when his name emerges from the Goblet of Fire. The Goblet determines the competitors for the Tri-Wizard Tournament, a gruelling battle between three wizarding schools. His name should never have been in the Goblet as he's still underage, and Cedric Diggory has already been chosen as Hogwarts champion. Dumbledore declares they must abide by the Goblet's decision. The tournament consists of three difficult tasks - a vicious, fire-breathing dragon, Merpeople of the Black Lake and an enchanted maze. Winning the Cup is not Harry's goal - surviving is. With help from Hermione, Ron, Moaning Myrtle, and Neville Longbottom, Harry makes it through the first two challenges. But when the third challenge leads Harry straight into Voldemort's grasp, Harry must rely on his own skills to free himself from the Dark Lord's clutches.

    It's not until Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire that a film has successfully re-created the sense of stirring magical adventure and engaged, edge-of-your-seat excitement that ha...

    Last year's "The Prisoner of Azkaban" seemed dark, but this excellent fourth film derived from J.K. Rowling's books is the darkest "Potter" yet, intense enough to warrant a PG-13 r...

    His (Ralph Fiennes) Voldemort may be the greatest screen performance ever delivered without the benefit of a nose; certainly it's a performance of sublime villainy.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Arthur: It's the Dark Mark, Harry. It's his mark.
      Harry: What, Voldemort? Those people tonight, in the masks, they're his too, aren't they?
      Arthur: Yeah. Death Eaters.

    • Dumbledore: So Hogwarts has been chosen to host a legendary event: The Triwizard Tournament. Now, for those of you who do not know...
      George and Fred: Brilliant.
      Dumbledore: ... the Triwizard Tournament brings together three schools for a series of magical contests. From each school a single student is selected to compete. Now let me be clear. If chosen, you stand alone. And trust me when I say these contests are not for the faint-hearted.

    • Moody: Scores of witches and wizards have claimed that they only did You-Know-Who's bidding under the influence of the Imperius curse. But here's the rub: How do you sort out the liars?

    • Moody: The Goblet of Fire is an exceptionally powerful magical object. Only an exceptionally powerful Confundus Charm could have hoodwinked it.

    • McGonagall: This can't go on Albus. First the Dark Mark. Now this?
      Dumbledore: What do you suggest, Minerva?
      McGonagall: Put an end to it. Don't let Potter compete.
      Dumbledore: You heard Barty. The rules are clear.
      McGonagall: Well, the devil with Barty and his rules. And since when did you accommodate the Ministry?
      Snape: Headmaster, I, too, find it difficult to believe this mere coincidence. However, if we are to truly discover the meaning of these events perhaps we should, for the time being let them unfold.
      McGonagall: What--? Do Nothing? Off him up as bait? Potter is a boy not a piece of meat.
      Dumbledore: I agree, with Severus.

    • Moody: (prior to facing the dragon) What are your strengths?
      Harry: Um, I don't know. Well, I can fly. I mean, I'm a fair flyer. But I...
      Moody: Better than fair, the way I heard it.
      Harry: But I'm not allowed a broom.
      Moody: You're allowed a wand.

    • Neville: Do you know there's a wizard in Nepal who's growing gravity-resistant trees?
      Harry: Neville, no offense, but I really don't care about plants. Now, if there's a Tibetan turnip that will allow me to breathe underwater for an hour then great. But otherwise--
      Neville: I don't know about a turnip. But you could always use gillyweed.

    • Voldemort: I'm going to kill you, Harry Potter. I'm going to destroy you. After tonight, no one will ever again question my power.

    • McGonagall: The house of Godric Gryffindor has commanded the respect of the wizard world for nearly 10 centuries. I will not have you, in the course of a single evening, besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons.
