I went to see the midnight showing of the latest Harry Potter film and was amazed to see the parking lot filled, relieved to learn they were showing it in four theaters. I'm pretty sure, at 54, I was the oldest person in the room. Most of the people were 15 to 25.

If you have not read the book, forget the movie. If you've read the book be prepared to be disappointed. This fourth Harry Potter flick just doesn't come together. Distilled down from over 700 pages, it loses too much. It loses a coherent story. It attempts to include arcane elements of magic and spells and ends up being an unexplained mystery to someone like me who has not read the book. At the end, it just sort of peters out. If you love the characters in the Harry series, it might be worth seeing, but the movie tries so hard to squeeze in scenes and magic fromt he book that there is very little character development, zero character arc and a disappoiningly little and shallow level of interaction between characters. The 15 year old I went to the movie with HAD read the book and he was disappointed by all the content that was missing. He agreed-- there was no story to the movie
