Harry Potter- Fifth Instalment

The story starts with a frenzy attack by two Dementors which led to a hearing in the Ministry of Magic. Harry finds out what the Order of the Phoenix is and what relevance it has to Voldemort.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix shows us how one evil person, for example Voldemort, can corrupt the Ministry of Magic or a government to the brink of madness.


We are introduced to the most annoying lady in pink on the earth called Dolores Umbridge. Her name is of course a play on words because ‘to take umbrage’ means to be displeased or to be offended by the actions of others. This explains her famous saying ‘the one thing I will not stand for is disloyalty‘ in relevance towards the Minister (Cornelius Fudge).

Harry’s mental connection to Voldemort is revealed and we see how the Dark Lord, Vodlemort, invades and controls Harry’s mind. Dumbledore sends Harry to have Occlumency lessons with Professor Snape. These lessons help Harry to block the Dark Lord’s influence on his mind.

This mental connection starts with the attack of Mr Weasley in the Ministry of Magic, which is executed by Voldemort’s snake, Nagini, however, Harry feels as though he is attacking Mr Weasley.

Two of the most amazing scenes in the film are when Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Ginny and Neville go to the mysterious door in the Department of Mysteries in the Ministry of Magic. They go to save Sirius who has been captured by Voldemort and is in a room – or so they think. They go through the door into the room, where they are attacked by Death Eaters. This is very impressive because there are little glass balls falling all over the place.

The second amazing scene is the scene where Dumbledore and Vodemort fight; their wands do incredible things, for example Dumbledore takes all the water from the fountain in the Ministry of Magic entrance and sucks Voldemort into a ball of the water. Voldemort breathes out fire in the shape of a snake which is phenomenal because of the detail in the fire snake.

This film is outstanding and it shows what can happen when people have the power to do whatever they wish.
