When Hogwarts hosts the prestigious and dangerous Triwizard Tournament, the enchanted Goblet Of Fire inexplicably selects unqualified 14 year-old Harry (Radcliffe) as a competitor. Thus he has to face three terrifying tasks while a dark power gathers force against him. Even scarier, he has to get a date for the Yule Ball.
It’s refreshing that Potter 4 aspires to be a paranoid thriller rather than yet another detective mystery. House points, too, for the movie's terrific effects and considerable charm, but, once again, you can’t help wishing the filmmakers had been bolder with the adaptation.
