My assessment of the film is thus:
It skipped a great deal of the story in the book, and took liberties with some of the rest. Bartie Jr. did not appear at the house with Wormtail and Voldemort, he was not seen at the quiddich world cup, either.
Ludo Bagman was conspicuous by his absence, as was the house elf, Winky.
I thought Moody could have been cast a bit better, but he was OK. Crouch, Sr. was great. The tri-wizard champions were cast well, as were Cho, Pavarti and Padma (Pavarti appeared in #3 as well). I was somewhat disappointed in Madam Maxime, but Rita Skeeter was wonderful.
Ron needs a haircut, but the rest of the continuing cast looks fine.
Overall, I thought it was quite good and I'm looking forward to adding it to my library.
