Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)

I have always thoroughly enjoyed the entire Harry Potter series. The magic, fantasy,drama and yet family orientated films have captured my imagination and now are a catalyst of nostalgia. With that it is no surprise that I was very much looking forward to this penultimate offering.

The film was strong but not as much as the previous. It was wonderfully shot though mostly very dark. I never noticed before the attention to detail in the design of everything including the newspaper which is a typography dream.

The flow of the film was slow, very slow, but it didn’t feel drawn out. At two and a half hours it is quite an epic feature, it doesn’t quite necessarily need to be this length though. Overall it is a very good film, though there are still a few things that could have been ironed out, for one thing the acting is still not the best.
