After years of growing up with Harry Potter, it is shortly at its end. As Harry, Ron, and Hermione take their final journey in the first part to the 7th installment of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, audiences will be both thrilled by the action and saddened with thoughts of the inevitable end.
On their final journey, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are on a quest to find and destroy the remaining horcruxes that were introduced in the previous movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The horcruxes, dark objects that contain a part of Voldemort’s soul, must be found and destroyed to finally kill Voldemort. With little knowledge of where to start searching for the horcruxes, Harry, Ron, and Hermione must use their talent and all that they have learned throughout the years to not only find them, but avoid being killed.
The action and special effects in this movie will satisfy fans, from the opening scene of transporting Harry to the Weasley’s house while fending off Death Eaters to the fast-paced chases in the woods, audiences will surely be on the edge of their seats. With Voldemort and the Death Eaters on a constant chase for Harry and his friends, fans will be rooting for their beloved characters from beginning to end. From the disapparations to their near death experiences in London, the special effects in this movie are very believable and appropriate for each scene. Of all the Harry Potter movies, this one has the most action and fighting, which will definitely keep audiences awake for this two and a half hour long film.
The story line can be slightly difficult to follow if you have never watched any of the Harry Potter movies. Probably the most difficult concept to grasp would be that of the horcruxes, but other than that, first time viewers should be fine. As mentioned earlier, this movie does involve more action than previous movies, but it also provides a little more romance and a more in depth view of the characters. The characters of Harry, Ron, and Hermione are more defined, especially for Ron and Hermione. The two characters have bigger roles than in any of the previous movies, and are also portrayed with their own conflicts and relationships. It is made clear that the journey that the three friends are on, has more to do with than just protecting Harry and avenging his parents, it also means something for each of them. It is apparent in this movie that Harry would not have been as successful in the past films without Ron and Hermione. Fans will learn to appreciate the characters even more in this movie.
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron), and Emma Watson (Hermione) are amazing in this movie. They continue to portray their characters well, and definitely make this movie worth watching. The little kids everyone knew in the first movies are now mature young adults. Fans will be able to see that they have not only grown as their characters, but as actors too.
As a big Harry Potter fan, I was really impressed with this movie. It was by far the best, with its continued known excellence of action, storyline, and acting. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It is worth your money and your time, and will get you excited for the next and last movie – Part 2.
