Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (Part 1) Movie Review
The first grand finale of the Harry Potter series titled “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows” has finally hit the screens and this time around instead of the conventional single part version, it is been made as two parts with the second part scheduled for a July 2011 release. This first part is a cut above the other Potter movies that had hit the screens. The computer graphics are brilliant, the locales where it has been shot are a treat to watch and importantly the on-screen adaptation of the novel is brilliant.
There were 6 installments of this series before this film got released and the estimated box-office collection of them were totaled approximately at $5.42 billion. However the first part of Deathly Hallows is estimated to rake-in revenues of around $1 billion worldwide. Director David Yates who had earlier directed the previous two installments of the Potter series has hit the bull’s eye with his latest film as the viewers and die-hard fans of Potter are sure to be thrilled by the exploits of their favorite magician wizard.
The story of this part is about how Harry Potter along with his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Grangel race against time and evil to destroy the horcruxes and in the race of the battle to survival, Harry uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world. What does these powerful objects do to Harry and how is it going to help Lord Voldemort overpower Potter is all about in the two parts of this final installment in the Potter Saga.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1)” is more mature and entertaining for audiences of all ages. The acting is brilliant, the sets are more realistic and as the story demands that the lead characters have to face and fight the evil in the vast world, most of the film is shot outdoors which sets the mood for a more enriching experience.
The movie was initially meant to be released in 3D format buoyed by the stupendous success of James Cameron directed “Avatar” but at the last minute the plans for a 3D version was shelved and let’s hope that the final part of the Potter Saga will enthrall the audience in 3D. There are certain scenes in the film which were visualized in mind keeping the fact that the movie will be made in 3D but to be honest even those scenes look brilliant on 2D.
In terms of acting Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson have continued the good work and so are the other supporting actors. Background score by Alexandre Desplat suits the mood of the film very well and editing by Mark Day is crisp.
The movie has a running time of 146 minutes (End-titles run for ten minutes) and it sets the expectations to sky-rocket for the next and final part of the epic saga releasing in July 2011.
“Harry Potter” has treated his fans immensely with this entertaining film.
