Critics Consensus: Deathly Hallows Is Certified Fresh
This week at the movies, we've got Hogwarts horrors (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson) and a prison break (The Next Three Days, starring Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks). What do the critics have to say? Pottermaniacs, the wait is finally over - sort of. The first installment of the series' two part finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is here, and the critics say that despite occasional lags in pacing and a (perhaps necessarily) abrupt conclusion, the movie mostly delivers, thanks in large part to the now-full-grown trio of lead actors.
