Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 Review by Harsh Sadhvani
**** 4 Stars
The movie starts abruptly with the focus on Rufus Scrimgeour's eyes when with the ministry of the dark times that have due to the return of Lord Voldemort. Then the story moves on with Harry's life and all the trouble that the wizarding world faces with Voldemort and his supporters. David Yates the director of this movie and also the previous two movies, has learned a lot from the his previous experience and therefore we see a ton of action and special effects in this film. The movie's main tone is thriller with many other elements like love, hate, anger etc.
Things that we observed:
Comparison to the book: The best thing of the movie that all the fans will love is that the movie ninety percent loyal to the book and almost nothing important is missing in this movie, even minute characters like Aunt Mureal are there in the movie. There were even extra scenes like when Hermione erases her parents memories and sends them to Australia. This scene creates an emotional bonding with the audience and makes them feel more close to the Hermione's life which was not mentioned in the book. The creation of a two part finale was done not only for profit but to fulfill the wishes of the fans and therefore none of us should complain about it.
Cast: The main cast of the film Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert have improved in their performance in this movie, with the influence of the wonderful cast of the best British actors like Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, Julie Walters, Ralph Fiennes, Micheal Gambon and many more.
Special Effects: The special effects are really well done and would actually look great in 3D. The movie is scray at some times when the creatures come toward the screen and how the characters apparate from one place to another. All this would look fabulous in 3D.
The Soundtrack: The soundtrack done by Alexandre Desplat moves with the flow of the movie like John Williams in the first three films. It music is perfect for the action sequences and the numerous running sequences in the movie.
The Length: The movie is about two and a half hours long but you wont come to know when the movie ends as their is so many things happening at the same time in different places in the story. As their is no Hogwarts we don't even come to know what part of the year it is. Thus the feeling of the movie is very different from any other Harry Potter movie. This will be the only Harry Potter movie where we do not get a glimpse at what is happening at Hogwarts.
The End: The biggest thing that people wonder is that when will the movie end. The end is about at end of chapter 23 and the starting of chapter 24 in the book (when Dobby dies). This leaves a lot expectations from the audience for the next movie which we hope will be fulfilled by July 15, 2011.
So be ready for the second part and the final Harry Potter film on July 15, 2011.
