Directed by Mike Newell, the fourth installment of the hugely popular ’Harry Potter’ series sees Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) board the train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he will attend his fourth year of magical education. Shortly after his reunion with his best friends, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), Harry is introduced to yet another Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher: the grizzled Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson). Of course, Harry’s wishes for an uneventful school year are almost immediately shattered when he is unexpectedly chosen, along with fellow student Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson), as Hogwarts’ representative in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, which awards whoever completes three magical tasks the most skilfully with a thousand-galleon purse and the admiration of the international wizard community.

Stating that this is the best of the Harry Potter films to date may sound like damning with faint praise; although the first three adaptations of J. K. Rowling's novels had great moments, they still suffered from weak performances from some of the child actors, and lacked a real sense of menace. Yet in the hands of director Mike Newell, new energy has been injected into the franchise, lacing the film with moments of real terror. A scene in a perilous labyrinth towards the end of the film is particularly spine-chilling.

Newell's flare for comedy is much in evidence, such as the lead-up to the Yule Ball set piece, in which apathetic students need to pair up for the dance, whilst the visual gags involving magic spells are as amusing as ever. Where this film really advances on its predecessors, however, is in its acting; Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) and Emma Watson (Hermione) have noticeably improved, and add a much needed dose of emotional depth to the proceedings. With ever-brilliant special effects, exciting action sequences and a newly sinister atmosphere, Newell has created the first great Harry Potter film.
