Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Directed By: David Yates
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter
Plot: As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows.
Rating: 8.5/10
Recommendation: Rent it if you're not into the Harry Potter films but if you're like me and own the first six films it's a must buy but I'm going to wait for both parts to be released as one. (Update- Bought both of them separate)

Overall, the film is a brilliant beginning to the end (as I already stated) and I really did enjoy it. For this, I am rating the film a 8/10.

The story is outstanding, the cast is superb, and David Yates' direction is skillful.

The script is well written and executed. This movie sets up the final part excellently, with the tension at an all time high . All three actors perform their character brilliantly.

I enjoyed camping with these three.

This is really a movie more based on emotion as the horcruxes influence Ron and Harry alike. I liked a lot and without doubt immediately watched part 2.

I was a bit disappointed with this movie. Not enough action and too slow from what we have previously experienced. The third highest grossing film of 2010.

grown up potter and friends pull together a half-decent movie

This is another solid entry in the franchise. It has very good action scenes and very sad moments. It does set up the final film very well but that is my only problem with it. The movie doesn't stand on its own, if you watch this one you almost have to watch the next one right after. As an individual movie this is not the best but it does set up the final film very nicely.

A return to form with the 7th Harry Potter film - that is finally bringing some coherence and moving to closure of the whole Harry v the Dark Lord story. The scenery and action are great, story line standouts and have some real tension and sense of danger developed. The three stars are in great form as are all the supporting cast. Definitely one of the better films in the franchise.

The sad, lonely and weird stretch where its just the three main characters lost in the woods rank among the best stuff in the whole series, plus there are some fun heist/escape sequences.

It was the darkest and most hopeless of all the Potter films. It was the first time where they didn't spend the year at Hogwarts, so it felt very different in that sense and lost some of its charm. Not as fun in a light-hearted sense. Very dramatic and intense.

The end is coming in "Death Hallows - Part 1" and at this point in the franchise, director David Yates has found the perfect balance from book to screen. While it may not be as magical as previous outings, the dark and thrilling setup to the finale is still extremely entertaining and the matured performances are a plus.
½ January 5, 2018
A well crafted movie with a good blend of drama, suspense and action, it is the most matured of all the movies, equipped with more logical thinking charactes and coherent events, but stil presents that magical feel innate to the series...This is probably my favorite in the entire franchise.

Deathly Hallows part 1 is a magnificent and entertaining adventure film!
December 27, 2017
It was ok, but really slow... And all of it only to tell us what the deathly hallows are.
Hopefully the next one will be more action-filled.
½ December 27, 2017
Exhilarating effects and a beautifully dark ominous tone aren't enough to prevent this from being exactly what it is... half a film. The decision to turn the final book into two films may have been good for the bank account, but it definitely makes this one of the more hollow entrants into the HP series.
"Bellatrix Lestrange: You stupid elf! You could have killed me!
Dobby the House Elf: Dobby never meant to kill! Dobby only meant to maim, or seriously injure!"

This film is full of everything we love about Harry Potter but also subverts several expectations we usually have going into a Potter film. We don't really see Hogwarts. It's a gritty, dramatic road flick that REALLY works

Puntaje Original: 7.0

Por un momento llegué a creer que se convertiría en una aburrida versión de The Pianist en Harry Potter, pero aún conserva la magia que jamás dejará de cautivar.
½ December 10, 2017
Very different to the other movies, and much slower paced but still a fantastic entry. Gritty, heartfelt towards the characters we have grown to love.
