I finally saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix today. I've been very sceptical to this one, I didn't like any of the other Harry Potter movies, and this book is my favourite. I was therefore actually pleasantly surprised over this one.
The movie has the right feel and tone, dark and mysterious, but could have benefited from a hour more film, and a 15 year limit, instead of the given 11 (Norwegian rating).

The movie continued the line of not explaining more than what's absolutely necessary, but didn't bring anything new either, and cut most of the really exiting part of the book; the mystery room in the department, so it's a bit hard to understand who this movie was made for.

I felt it was a 2 hour 18 minute long trailer for the story, making you want to read the book, regardless of your previous readthroughs.
