It's just a lot of smoke - literally and figuratively - that evaporates into thin air without meaning or context.

This penultimate entry in the series lacks the life and the imagination of its worthy predecessors.

Hallows: Part 1 isn't a film at all. It's a placeholder. And its makers are making fans pay for the privilege of remaining caught up.

Every two minutes the action whooshes sideways to someone somewhere else.

Little White Lies

Despite its enormous popularity and commercial success, the Harry Potter saga seems destined to be remembered as never quite adding up to the sum of its parts.

This one is a long, archetypal journey that screeches to a halt a few stops short of its destination.

Often just seems to be going round in very decreasing circles, chasing its own fairytale.

The three main leads' deficient acting ability causes the movie to falter in the middle. The absence of the colorful supporting players to bolster enthusiasm is a crucial missing ingredient. The computer-generated special visual effects are...

Deathly Hallows - Part 1 isn't necessarily bad but it's more than a little disappointing.

At the Movies (Australia)

This series is really getting tired. The films of J.K. Rowling's mega-popular books were always handled with grim seriousness by the various directors assigned to them, but at least in the early films there was a sense of magic and originality.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow: Part 1 is bad on an epic scale. The worst film in the series. Period.

The Age (Australia)

The pervasive dark tone, the heavy-handed dialogue and the sloth-like pace of Deathly Hallows reflects the self-importance that has now overwhelmed the obligation to entertain.

Potter stumbles at the finish line with tepid Hallows.

Rowling's flaws as a storyteller are much more evident in this film than in previous installments.

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

This grim beginning-of-the-end odyssey has a very different feel from any of its predecessors -- a development slightly more disconcerting than it is welcome.
