“Rupert Grint brings the right wisecracking Everyboy flavor to Harry’s pal Ron…” (Sorcerer’s Stone)
“Grint, with his rubbery face, displays great comic timing as Ron, who makes up in spell casting what he believes he lacks in social status.” (Sorcerer’s Stone)
“Because of its tricky subject matter, Goblet of Fire requires a careful balance of doom and gloom as well as adolescent frolic and a dash of nifty special effects. […] Especially with the latter, the tone is just right, captured humorously by Ron Weasley – dealing with dating, hand-me-downs, and friendly jealousy.” (Goblet of Fire)
“In fact, the action sequences aren’t half as interesting as the humorous awkwardness of our young heroes as they navigate the dangers of being 14. Radcliffe and Grint have some electric sequences as anger and jealousy threaten Harry and Ron’s friendship…” (Goblet of Fire)
… and my favourite one:
“The chap can handle a close-up. We see him register the obvious disconnect as his teary-eyed mom utters the mantra of the minister’s wife: ‘We’re God’s ambassadors – we show the world a smiling face.’ Or the quiet disappointment as his father buries himself in bird books. Shorup-ship-see, shorup-ship-see – he tries to teach Ben the skylark’s call. Ben stands there, quiet, pained, aching to break free.” (Driving Lessons)
