Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Movie Review

Nov 19, 2010

The beginning of the end is upon us. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is now in theatres. And Kidzworld has an inside look.


The Reign of Voldemort

Lord Voldemort’s supports have infiltrated the Ministry of Magic. They plan to wipe out all half-blood and muggle born wizards, while on the hunt for Harry Potter. Harry leaves the Dursley’s home for the final time, but doesn’t get far before he and his entourage are attacked by Death Eaters. After losing a few close friends, they seek refuge at the Borrow, where Fleur and Bill Weasley are planning a wedding.


The Wedding

But the wedding doesn’t go as planned. Death Eaters attack during the reception. Harry, Ron and Hermione disapparate, and begin their inevitable journey a little more suddenly than expected. Luckily Hermione came prepared with a bottomless handbag that seems to hold all of their needs, including a tent.


Middle of Nowhere

On their quest to find and destroy Voldemort’s seven Horcruxes, the trio face depression, boredom, jealousy and anger. And for one, the journey doesn’t quite measure up to what he thought he signed up for.


The Bottom Line

We all knew that by separating The Deathly Hallows into two movies, the first movie would undoubtedly be slower and less climactic than the second. The film reflects the content of the book exactly, without chopping any significant details. It has many slow moments while Harry, Ron and Hermione are on their quest to find the Horcruxes. But those scenes are interspersed with unanticipated attacks and quick action scenes. All in all, Part 1 won’t leave you with that complete and satisfied feeling that you’d get with the previous six films. And nor should it. It’s not the end. It’s only the beginning of the end.

Ponytails headbands shorts and short sleeved shirts with light jackets that say stuff like chiefs on them. However, my favorite oufit is a green floral short sleeve shirt over a purple long sleeve shirt.. my popularity is at about 4 out of 9 :p
