Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

Connor Macgregor Reviews...Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1

I've just seen Harry Potter 7 and i have mixed feelings over it and here is why.

As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows.

Firstly the acting is great. Watching the three leads grow out has been amazing. They have both improved incredibly and are capable to competing with Hollywood's giants. Ralph Feinnes as Voldermort is honestly the greatest villian in cinema history. He is unbeatable in this film. We see also how sinister Bellatrix Lestrange is and how evil she can be. Its all a very gloomy and dark atmosphere and While David Yates isn't perfect , he gets the tone brilliantly.

Here are my problems however. I felt it could have been more in depth. David Yate's direction was at time off putting and didn't put more depth into the plot. Sure its 2 parts which means more things to explain , just that the first battle was over in seconds and we didn't get the emotional impact of the two deaths. Dobby's appearance i was also quite dissapointed in but never the less we see a great character return for his last hoorah. We also see development between The Three and their proper feelings for each other , especially Ron & Hermione. Harry & Ginny's relationship i haven't bought in yet but its the 2nd part i think i will be invested with.

Never the less , This film will make money and a lot i think. See it because its the film that sets up the all important finale. The Finale To End All Finales.
