Have you ever wondered which the most hated Harry Potter movie is? The Harry Potter movie franchise is massive, with each individual firm earning hundreds of millions in lifetime gross income alone. However, it's not often clear which of the Harry Potter movies is the most loved and the most disliked.

With this thought in mind, we've presented some of the information you need to know about which Harry Potter movie is the most hated of them all. You might just be surprised by what this brings to light!

The most hated Harry Potter movie is often hard to pinpoint. However, we can consider a few key metrics to garner insight into this overall.

Analyzing Harry Potter Movies by Income

One of the first things we can look at when considering the popularity of different Harry Potter movies is income – both the lifetime gross income and the opening income. Overall, the least successful Harry Potter film from the main franchise was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which brought in just shy of $250 million (still not shabby by a long shot, if you ask us!)

However, in terms of opening success (indicating the overall hype for the movie), Prisoner of Azkaban performed relatively well. In fact, the Order of the Phoenix was the lowest-grossing Harry Potter film in its opening week – but recouped a lot of this income later on.

Which is the Most Hated Harry Potter Movie by Reputation?

Thus far, we've identified that at least based on financial performance alone, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and the Order of the Phoenix. But what's the general consensus on the worst Harry Potter movie?

Perhaps the best way to consider this is to look at the average ratings for the movies. Luckily, with such a massive franchise, there's a huge amount of data to go on here! As such, in order of popularity by rating, the most loved to most hated Harry Potter movies are as follows:

  1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II – 8.1 / 10
  2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – 7.9 / 10
  3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I – 7.7 / 10
  4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – 7.7 / 10
  5. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's / Sorcerer's Stone – 7.6 / 10
  6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – 7.6 / 10
  7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – 7.5 / 10
  8. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – 7.4 / 10

What's the Verdict?

The analysis above shows that all the Harry Potter movies are largely very similar in rating and popularity. However, when we consider this, we can see that the most popular Harry Potter movie (from the main franchise) was Deathly Hallows: Part II. Meanwhile, the most disliked movie was either the Chamber of Secrets or the Order of the Phoenix – however, it's unclear which one is the most hated overall.

Determining which Harry Potter movie is the most hated is difficult since there aren't exactly any nationwide or international polls to go on! With this thought in mind, we've had to get a little creative in our analysis of the most hated Harry Potter movie.
