When I first step into the Historical Marvel Theatre in Carlinville, Illinois. I am taken back to an older era of movie history. Today though, I have come to see a modern movie. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. What follows is a short but concise review of the movie. No I will not divulge plot details. Nor will I Spoil anything for the viewers who have not seen this movie.
As the movie starts, within the first five minutes you get a feeling for what the characters have gone through. Hardly a word of dialog is spoken. But the movie emotes the sadness that has befallen this world we are viewing. As we go further into the story I, as a fan of the books and a bit wary because of previous Potter movies, am surprised at how closely they are staying to the source materials.
The story definitely stays with the dark tones of the book. Rarily straying from what we have known and grown to love about the books. The movie does slow down for a while about half way through. But the character development does keep you through the slower points. The ending does end on a low point for our heroes. For some their emotions may get the best of them. Most Potter fans should be able to tell you in two seconds where the movie leaves off for the sequel.
To summarize, the story stays true to the books with an extra action scene thrown in. The character development was excellently portrayed by the actors and scripts. And the special effects were exactly what we’ve come to expect from a Harry Potter movie.
Overall a Supremely Superb Movie! I highly recommend any Potter fan to go see this movie twice. There is a lot of fan service in the background to warrant it. I’m going to see it again this weekend.
Thank you for reading,
