We have been growing, enjoying, learning magic together with wizard boy Harry Potter and director David Yates shows us the beginning of the end where the boy-who-lived completes his journey in First part of Deathly Hollows. J.K. Rowling has a magnificent plot. Albus Dumbledore , Serious Black are Dead. Lord Voldemort is Alive and stronger as ever. Harry has reached the age where from now his mothers protection will wear off soon. Entire army of Death Eaters chasing Harry Hermione and Ron. Harry now has to find out and destroy four horcruxes out of seven and here’s where the movie begins.
Daniel Radcliffe is most convincing in lead role as harry potter. Daniel has successfully played An orphan, always bullied,famous,curse-burdened wizard over the seven years in seven films.
Being a die-hard book fan Rowling has done just superb job in creating Harry’s character, So perfect that i actually was taken to Hogwarts seven times in seven books. We read perceive and believe the characters in our minds. To recreate those same characters from book is not so simple but a wonderful job done. Daniel has relived our memories of book on screen.
Ron has more to do in this series than crack jokes,eat junk food and look stupid. First time in movie Harry and Ron are given equal preference and Ron does rescue Harry destroying one of the horcruxes. Rupert Grint has been really mature and gives us surprises. Emma on the other hand takes glamorous quotient of entire movie in her hands. She looks beautiful,sharp-witted,intelligent and knowing charms-on-demand definitely she acts as a life saver.
Eduardo Serra has brought the magical world to reality. Yes a commendable job done on creating such grand and exotic locations which definitely get “Oh My God.” , “Awesome” cries from the audience once they are shown in theatre. I was blown away by the details to the finer level. Lighting of movie helped the movie flow. Like when death eater summoned Lord Voldemort Darkness grew along with tension in our eyes and hearts. Many Dark forests are been shown, The magnificent wizard school Hogwarts has always been a visual delight right from the philosophers stone.
New Dark locations in school of wizardry and witchcraft are been shown, example the group session of death eaters and Lord Voldemort in the movie intro scene with Nagini the Dark lord’s serpant is scary and you definitely skip a beat while seeing it. Along a Long commendable job done in bringing the book locations on live cinema.
Animation and Graphics
Well the movie gets less points on this one. All the harry potter movies had memorable graphics and visual effects. Catching of the Golden Snitch in Philosoper’s stone or slaying of the snake in chamber of secrets and so on. The Magic part in the magical movie is as low as it can be.
Movie does have few animated scenes but most of them are easily forgettable one’s. Astonishing visual special effects is one reason why harry potter movies get a repeat audience. The movie remains more of a stage-drama than a movie. Most of the movie goes in hiding and running The action part is not-just-there.
Movie is really brilliant in pieces but as a whole package put together it just did not work for me. Nice acting, beautiful locations but even after concentrating on minor detail when i looked to the movie as a whole i felt the soul of movie was missing. There was something which was not there, at least not there enough for me to notice. I get it MAGIC.Simple question what is a Magical movie without enough magic. Enough time is wasted clearing the concept of symbols and story of 3 brothers who asked 3 different thing from death. Also roomer is that the best is saved for the last. But for harry potter and deathly hollows part 1 it is no use and not advisable to watch the movie in 3D.
The all time favorite Voldemort and harry potter Duelling would be my one of the favorite scenes would hope that director would film it really larger than life.
The end of the Magical Saga should be Legendary and if they have saved the Best for the last, then David Yates is definitely expected to show the most amazing special effects in cinematic history of Hollywood.
My verdict, Any loyal HP fan, it’s your religion to go and watch this movie. Movie is slow paced so even if you want to you cannot stand the same movie twice. So in this way the First part of the Last part goes leaving us little unsatisfied. But we are Harry potters loyal fans and we definitely expect a great ending of movie. Here’s the trailer of movie for all those who would want to see it.
