Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I

Part one of the climactic finale of the Harry Potter series (JK Rowling's last book, The Deathy Hallows, has been split in two for the movies).

Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction – the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive. Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale – the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks. Now Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

Joining the cast is Rhys Ifans (as Xenophilius Lovegood), Ciaran Hinds (as Aberforth Dumbledore) and Bill Nighy (as Rufus Scrimgeour).

Boring part of the book out of the way

I enjoyed the other movies except for the god awful fifth movie. This movie was ok but seemed to be too slow. I've read the book and know that the next movie is going to be much better.

Love these films!

I'm so in love with the Harry Potter films. These are the films that made me want to be a film maker! They are so beautiful, magical, emotional, colourful, fun and humorous. And from a film making point of view... I think the cinematography is AMAZING, so beautiful! And this in particular film was very interesting. I did miss Hogwarts a bit... But it was...

Will we see it through?

Was a good movie. Being a new HP fan and watching the whole lot in a row, this movie didn't disappoint. Will be waiting for the next one. :)

Faithful to the book!

I am the hugest Harry Potter fan, but even I was skeptical when I heard they were going to chop Deathly Hallows into two parts. Turns out it was a brilliant idea, because they were able to be very faithful to the book, and develop the character relationships in such an interesting way. And gosh, was Dobby the star of the film! :D A great lead up to Part II!

One of the better Harry Potter films, this is a solid lead up to what will likely be a grand finale.

Patient, intense, beautiful, Part 1 is easily the most powerful of the series and my personal favourite. Bring on Part 2.

Saw it for the second time...

I still really enjoyed it. The pacing is a little bit slow, but you do get used to it. It is a well crafted film, but would work much better with the continuation of the nest film...

Extremely black and boring

Something for the diehard Harry Potter fans. Typical American “let’s get as much money out of them as we can” could easily be cut down to 35 min.

Director David Yates spins the series' most expansive, structurally free-form chapter yet -- lumbering and gripping by turns, and suffused with a profound sense of solitude and loss.

The thunder before the lightning; the rumble on the tracks... Passable and occasionally potent, but a towering great tease that has no right to exist in isolation from the latter - better - part of the story.

Try as I might, I can't shake the suspicion that these films are too obviously built for purpose and too lacking in wit, warmth and humanity to survive much beyond the moment.

There is no way Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is going to flop, writes Bridget Jones.

This grim beginning-of-the-end odyssey has a very different feel from any of its predecessors -- a development slightly more disconcerting than it is welcome.

The first and third acts are over-busy; the middle one moves like an arthritic house-elf. Still, a decent smattering of magic moments and tension's pumped up sky-high. Bring on Part 2.
