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

TOMATOMETER

Critic Reviews for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

All Critics (259) | Top Critics (46)

Part 1, like its predecessors, has been made with great care, craft and attention to detail. It is also darker and more foreboding.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 isn't close to being a bad movie, but it is arguably the weakest among the seven films in the series.

It feels like the longest, deathliest panto ever made -- and still it isn't over.

Maybe Harry Potter could cast a magic spell over us before we see his new movie.

Yates does a pretty good job with the heavy lifting, but there's not much poetry to this exercise that brings the story of the boy wizard one step closer to its conclusion.

Deathly Hallows is the first Harry Potter film that fully delivers on the promise of J.K. Rowling's works, expertly balancing a tricky and expansive narrative, along with quiet character moments and some rollicking action sequences.

Audience Reviews for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

½

Simply one of the best Potter movies so far. I have to say David Yates as director has grown with each movie and in this one he brings the love of the subject to the screen. Like it says its part 1 . . so much to cover that well many other characters have very bit parts but overall its a great film.

Part One is still really entertaining and very dark, but some of the magic seems lost without Hogwarts. Still, this movie sets up the final part excellently, with the tension at an all time high. This is a good movie, but the final part is what we really want to see.

I needn't say after the prior reviews but visual effects are superb. And..."HI!"...Harry's grown up into a hot young man. The ending leaves one breathless and frustrated that another year must pass until the next installment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
