The Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows (Part I) Review



The Order of the Phoenix separate out, using magic so that several of them can impersonate Harry Potter and mislead Lord Voldemort’s followers as they attempt to kill Harry. Harry, Hermione and Ron each receive a bequest in Professor Dumbledore’s will and believe these contain clues to the locations of the horcruxes. As they gather to celebrate Bill Weasley’s wedding, they learn that Lord Voldemort’s forces have overthrown the Ministry of Magic. Forced to go on the run, Harry, Ron and Hermione adopt disguises to break into the Ministry of Magic and steal back the real locket horcrux that has been taken by Dolores Umbridge. Escaping into the wilderness, they try to find a means of destroying it. They are forced to take turns wearing the horcrux but doing so brings out all that is dark and negative in them. This causes Ron to leave, jealous of the closeness between Harry and Hermione. Together, they realize that they need to find the Sword of Gryffindor in order to destroy the locket.


The film looks at an immaculate, the special effects are again better than last time and the production to perfection care.House elf Dobby (voiced by Toby Jones) steals the show, the actors remain predominantly the background to the three young actors to thrive to shine.Daniel Radcliffe is clearly willing and able to take Harry to deeper, darker places. Eduardo Serra’s cinematography is beautiful and the music by Alexandre Desplat, who took over the baton of John Williams. The score is different, but effective and gives a unique atmosphere to the movie. All the ‘preconditions’ are therefore perfectly fine.Rupert Grint displays sparks of brilliance but is frustratingly dumbed down by Yates. Emma Watson, a super star in the making, mercifully keeps her eyebrows under control. That this is a tad disappointing first part has to do with the slow, almost dragging middle part of the movie. Screenwriter Steve Kloves and editor Mark Day had quite some here may be critical because there could easily half hours can be omitted for the same effect. These scenes therefore not justify that two films had to be the seventh book of JK Rowling – at least not from a literary perspective.


Every minute of Deathly Hallows, brings us one step closer to the ultimate battle the ultimate evil with no nose. Until then, we have little time to practice all spells learned, gnefontas conspiratorial among us..

Disappointing dearth of cinematic magic.The fireworks have yet to be lit.

  1. I see a rating option at the bottom of an article. Is it to rate the movie or your review on it? It does not look clear. I am assuming that it is the latter as movie ratings are maintained better by others like rottentomatoes and imdb.
