🔴 Condition - Very Good 🔴
In Goblet of Fire, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is suffering from a recurring nightmare. He sees a room glimpsed from a dark corridor, in which his nemesis, the evil Lord Voldemort, conspires with his disciples.
When Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry opens for another year, dark figures attack. The dark figures, who are known as Death Eaters, haven't appeared since their leader, Voldemort, lost his powers 13 years before, on the night he murdered Harry's parents but failed to kill the baby Harry.
From the very opening we can see that Newell and Kloves have chosen to jettison the world of muggles (non-magic folk), and this story takes place entirely on the School's grounds.
This year, Hogwarts is also to host the Tri-Wizard Tournament. As a result, two other prestigious magic schools, the Beauxbatons Academy with its beautiful and graceful girls, and the Durmstrang Institute of athletic and powerful boys join Hogwarts for the competition.
Candidates, who enter the tournament by placing their names in the Goblet of Fire, must be at least seventeen years old to join in the dangerous competition of three challenges. The enchanted Goblet of Fire spits out the names of the champion for each of the three schools. However, a strange thing happens - a fourth name flies out - Harry Potter. At 14, Harry is far too young to compete. Yet the Goblet must be followed, so Harry is entered into a very dangerous competition against magic students far more advanced than he.
Harry's strange selection upsets his relationship with his two best friends. Ron (Rupert Grint) becomes angry and jealous, and believes Harry cheated his way into selection to gain popularity. Meanwhile, Hermione (Emma Watson) is concerned for Harry, and also becomes increasingly annoyed as she finds herself in the middle of her two warring friends.
Hogwarts' Headmaster Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) is also worried. Believing that there is some foul play at work, he asks the new Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor, the extremely odd Alastor 'Mad-Eye' Moody (Brendan Gleeson), to watch over Harry.
The three challenges of the Tri- Wizard Tournament provide the basic structure of the story. Each is a great action set piece, filled with danger and adventure. The first challenge puts the young wizards up against angry, fire-spewing dragons. The second sends the four contestants to the depths of the mysterious Black Lake. The final challenge involves a giant, creepy maze of vicious hedges and narrow, misty, pathways.
It is during this final challenge that Harry is finally brought before the cruel Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). The much-anticipated confrontation does not disappoint.
Another challenge facing Harry is that Hogwarts' Yule Ball requires that boys come with dates. Facing the agony of insecurity, both Harry and Ron find themselves tongue-tied and awkward. Harry desperately tries to work up the courage to approach Cho Chang (Katie Leung). Meanwhile, Ron asks Hermione in such a lame manner that she chooses to attend with Durmstrang's champion, Viktor Krum (Stanislav Ianevski).
