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.
