One impressive factor is the physicality of Daniel Radcliffe (and his stunt doubles, naturally!). Radcliffe has a long underwater sequence that has many face shots, so despite CGI we must believe he did many of these stunts himself. This is not just running from rock to rock as cover, this is a long-term swim doing a dolphin style - and no doubt hoping the rubber feet and finger-webs do not fall off in the middle of a shot!
As to the disk itself - it contains the movie. Do not expect extras. Those are in different packaging and/or on the Blu-Ray versions. (This review is of the DVD.) This DVD does show some sloppy transfer, some scenes just too dark or bright, and a couple that are plain out of focus (a criminal activity when it comes to film-to-disc transfer). I prefer a few extras, trailers at least, and preferably commentary or a short about the 'Making Of'. This tells me I received something extra for purchasing a film, rather than renting a single view.
If you are (or are becoming, as I am) a Harry Potter fan, this is simply Year Four. To stand alone in an 8-film series is a task for both screenwriters and director to face, and this episode of Harry Potter can indeed be viewed as the sole Potter film seen. The Tri-Wizard Tournament is a valid excuse for a film; that it fits seamlessly into the overall story is rather secondary (the others seem a build-up or What Happened After). 'Goblet of Fire' also is the turning point from Harry Potter being a pleasant fantasy for 11-year-olds to 15-year-olds facing the seriousness of living in the adult world (Wizarding or Muggle) and the challenges that actually exist on a daily basis. This film gets dark in tone near the end, and continues to darken through 'Deathly Hallows, Part 1" (the darkest of the lot, as 'Deathly Hallows, Part 2' resolves the series and there is much more light at the end).
Jump on the Hogwart's Express and have some fun! What are you, a Death-Eater?
It's especially fun watching with someone who hasn't seen them yet.
BUT PLEASE don't let that ruin your enjoyment of the movie.
It really is a great flick...even with that being said.
The darker tone continues and will continue in the rest of the movies.
I love the new characters that come along as well as the standard characters I've grown to love.
It's a great story line that leaves you wanting to pop the next movie in as soon as this one is done!
