Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 – A movie review

By the end of the last Harry Potter movie, this franchise started to turn into a bad case of what the industry calls the “Matrix Revolutions”.

This is caused by films that owe their existence purely to a marketing series momentum that has long since outlived the original fun. The principle symptom is a mythically complicated, wonderful, disastrous and fantastically gloomy clash between good and evil, about whose representatives there is nothing essential left to learn. The Harry Potter brand was clearly made to run a cruel headless-chicken marathon right through its two remaining movies to the bitter end.

But it must to be said that now there are odd and rather unforeseen signs of life. By simply not taking place in Hogwarts, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie seems much freer. Just by not compelling the viewer with the restless routine of coming back for a new term, seeing those cute moving panel portraits in the wood and introducing one new British character actor in the gallery of well-known British character actors on the instructing staff – all of which had become a dull tradition in the 20-minute opening of a Harry Potter movie – this one can breathe more easily. It saves it even though just a bit from the sense of déjà-vu.

DH1, as none with the smallest self-respect is referring it, is still weighed down with the usual loyalty to the fandom. There are some impenetrable story twists, and it brings the usual mythical element, but more gracefully than usual. As a non-fan of the Harry Potter franchise, I found myself questioning: what if you had never seen any of the previous movies and knew little or nothing about them? Might you not be anticipated by the weird story of three adolescences, precariously possessed of magical abilities, suddenly disappearing and reappearing in different locations, who are making a poor attempt at survival, and who are nervously coming to terms with the status rivalry and sensual tension between them? The answer is yes, some sort of.

The film starts with an exciting “conference of evil” led by the evil Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), discussing where and in what way to torture our hero, in which Voldemort’s contemptuous gaze drops on the unpleasant Lucius Malfoy (Jason Isaacs), dispossessing him of his wand, making this tool’s Freudian implications clearer than ever: Hermione (Emma Watson) afterward injures Harry’s and he irritatingly asks to use hers. Voldemort attempts everything but press a Doctor Evil-style-cliché button for Lucius to fall through a trapdoor.

Potter, portrayed by Daniel Radcliffe – once as moon-faced and round as his glasses, now rangy and tough – have to try escaping across open country, followed by Hermione and Ron (Rupert Grint). Watson’s Hermione is still very feminine and earnest, whereas Grint’s Ron now seems mature, slightly grizzled and bucolic. Grint’s very development to his second-in-command rank is fun. It is a long journey from the silly face he always had to show in the first movie.

Almost lack of allies and weapons, the heroes now must destroy the Horcruxes, which grant Voldemort’s great power, and they have to decode the mystery of the Deathly Hallows that viewers must wait until the very end of the movie to understand.

Like the previous ones, there is a decent 90-minute story visible inside this nicely decorated circus elephant of a movie. An experimental, low-budget version of Harry Potter might show only Harry, Ron and Hermione wandering in vast Beckettian wildernesses, shabby urban bars and deserted Orwellian ministerial hallways, arguing unstoppably among themselves. And still it is only when the trio is on their own that the movie comes to life: specifically in the mysterious Forest of Dean or a hazy Shaftesbury Avenue cafe in central London where they have a magic face-off with two foes.

The most interesting moment arrives when Ron is agonized by a paranoid, jealous dream of Hermione’s passionate love for Harry. It is relatively a gamey sequence. Something human and real is taking place, a sense of coming to the dramatic climax. Does Ron secretly doubt that Hermione would rather play something other than Quidditch?

Well, after Lord of the Rings, we’re used to the masterpiece that ends over and over again, and when the franchise finally does, at the end of the following movie, some retrospective shape and meaning may be given all that has already gone. I regret the Harry Potter films only had as much interest and power as one of the bests rides in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. They will be efficiently created, exciting-looking entertainment. Anything more would be magic.

    Thanks God, they made the 7th book into 2 movies. I’ve been worried since Half-blood Prince that Deathly Hallows is going to be cut off a lot like what they did with the 6th movie. Now, I’m so released. Deathly Hallows is easily the best of Harry Potter movies since it adapts every single interesting stuffs from the book. The only thing that makes me quite annoy is that the time I have to wait between 2 movies.

  • edmund stransky

    Yeah, during us wait so that time I was like “C’mon, you can release part 2 like 1 week after part 1. Why make long?”

  • ramona melin

    When I wait for the second part, I’ve watched the first one over and over again, and it seems to be abnormal. When you watch a movie many times, you will find it bored or full of flaws. Still, in case of Deathly Hallows part 1, the more you watch it, the more you like it.

  • nobu koarchey

    They should make it into 3 movies. There are a lot of stories about people destroying Horcux having not been told in either 2 parts. That cut off makes the flow quite confuse for those who haven’t read the book. This is the only time I think that 3 is better than 2.

  • tammi winke

    Overall, Deathly Hallows are great, both part 1 and part 2. However, part 2 is quite disappointed since the last battle at Hogwarts is not as epic as I imagine when I read the book.

  • deange loke plinger

    My opinion is different to you. I think the last battle is epic enough, but in part 1, the movie focuses too much in Harry and his friends while cutting off other people looking and destroying other Hocruxes. They should tell more about it to show how tough it is to go against Lord Voldemort.

    • lucre tiasu

      I think the first part is strong enough to be a beginning of an epic grand finale. It has succeeded in raising mood of dangerous, dark and rush of the 7th book.

  • pamala polich

    I agree with you that part 1 spends too much time on Harry and his friends. I think it should be called as Harry Potter and the Camping Trip.
    The part Harry finds the locket is so illogical since Harry use Patronous in a middle of the night and follow it with no reason.

  • valerie pellot

    The only thing exciting about the first part is porn scene of Harry and Hermione that Ron is deceived by the dark locket.

  • ettie people

    I think HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS movie is one of the best movie of the franchise since it fairly loyal to the book. The tension build up is very good throughout the movie.

  • esmeralda ritchey

    I feel that Deathly Hallows part 1 captures the exact feeling that Harry Potter movies should have been: gritty, emotional and cinematic. The movie has taken a big step from a child’s fantasy to be such maturity as it portray the central theme of first half of the seventh book: hopelessness and desperation.

  • palma gersten

    Yeah the series getting better and better, too shame that this has been an end. If the first movie is that good, imagine how the end would be. I especially like the story about the Deathly Hallows. It was a well-crafted animation.

  • araceli honahni

    The part is so beautiful and artistic. It looks like one of its kind. You would wish to see that story in longer version. I place all my bet that the long version of that story will be one of the best animations ever.

  • essievaz guez

    I was pleased when watching Part 1, so I’m so exciting to see Part 2. I have an expectation so high that fail so hard after watching Part 2. Don’t get me wrong, Part 2 is good, like top 3 of Harry Potter movies, but it isn’t matched to Part 2 in term of quality.

  • raye chabot

    Yeah, if you have done well in the first half, you need to maintain that in the second half. But the crew seems to fail to do so. I’m so disappointed after watching Part 2. The series desires a better ending.

    • fatima kenney

      The better ending needs to be a more epic grand finale battle. I’ve waiting for years to see that battle on big screen. I’ve imagine it to be so epic like the battle in Lord of the Ring, but it just likes some battle sequence of a modern war movie.

  • aracelih onahni

    What at epic end for an epic series. Deathly Hallows, both Part 1 & 2, live up to the promise of bringing on the big screen the epic end of Harry Potter series. The movies are those stay the most loyal to book among Harry Potter movies.

  • yuko carignan

    I think they have heard my begging of making 2 movies for 1 Harry Potter book. However, they continues to fail to adapt the story on big scene. 2 movies for 1 book, I they still miss ¼ of the story. One word for those who haven’t see Harry Potter movies, if you’ve read the books, ignore all the movies, if you haven’t, enjoy the movies but don’t read any Harry Potter book.
