Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix is the 5th episode of a growing boy who in training to be a wizard encounters the dreaded Lord Voldemort. Also his Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry encounters harsh trials as the the Conservative Ministry of Magic Professor Dolores Jane Umbridge implements radical reforms against the students.
The script is excellent. And so is the characterization as it fits the growing Harry Potter into adulthood. The special effects are unquestionable. The film is totally entertaining.
Again, one should see beyond magic and spells even though they are used as instruments for good or evil. The more relevant part is the importance of friends and family to as means of support or even survival. How true is the saying, "Love conquers all" even death.
Parents have to constantly educate their children that realistic as they may seem, magic and wizardly and spells are products of a fictitious mind and have no implications on the moral life.
