Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

In the 7th part of the series, Harry, Ron and Hermione begin a quest to discover and destroy the Horcruxes, evil Lord Voldemort’s secret to immortality.  The action is interesting enough, but the momentum kind of comes to a dreary stop about halfway through when they have to set up camp in the woods while Ron recuperates from an injury.  The most enchanting segment occurs when Hermione reads “The Tale of the Three Brothers” and we learn the Deathly Hallows are actually 3 magical objects.  The story is hauntingly animated, concise and easy to understand, something this 146 minute movie lacks.  As with the other films, you must be extremely familiar with the Harry Potter saga to comprehend the plot.  This chapter does not stand on its own, but if you’re a knowledgeable fan, you should enjoy this diverting placeholder until the finale.

  1. “you must be extremely familiar with the Harry Potter saga to comprehend the plot”.

    I agree. That’s why I think I enjoyed it more than the average person. I, as well, loved the animated sequence and although I rarely notice something like this, the visual effects are REALLY good. My favorite scene was when Hermione and Harry danced.

    Thought Rupert Grint (Ron) and Jason Isaacs gave the best performances.

  2. I’m sorry, I just couldn’t keep up with all the names and past movie references. I liked the special effects alot. Believe it or not, I did like the movie, but wanted so much more.

  3. I agree with what Ruben says about the special effects. They were truly outstanding. And that’s a lot coming from me; I barely notice that type of thing.
