Evil Must Be Confronted.
Returning for his fifth year of study at the venerable Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the ever-maturing Harry Potter is stunned to find that his warnings about the return of Lord Voldemort have been ignored. Left with no choice, Harry takes matters into his own hands, training a small group of students -- dubbed "Dumbledore's Army" -- to defend themselves against the dark arts.

The plot doesn't stand up to any scrutiny and there's too much distracting CGI (I really wish they'd use forced perspective for the giant in the woods, for example). Basically nothing of relevance happens at all and at the end we are basically back to square one.
That said, I did enjoy various aspects of the movie. The battle between Dumbledore and Voldemor was nice with more than just an exchange of balls of light. There are also some important character moments and it's nice to see the students actually taking things into their hands.

Marks the turning point, Harry goes from being reactive to proactive, but the most notably changed are Hermione and Neville
