Bradly's Review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is an Incomplete entertaining confusingly clever Potter Fan-stravaganza. Fanatics embrace, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows cast a killing curse on muggles who wouldn't know the difference between a death eater and a Dementor. The anticipation for part 2 this movie creates is well worth admission however if not a fan of the wizarding world avoid this one entirely.
Harry Potter and love lorn friends Hermonie and Ron are on a quest for Horocruxs and Deathly Hallows. Both key elements to defeating the Evil Lord Voldemort. The Potter pals most over come paranoia, suspicion, and brooding emo bickering if they are going to band together to do what's right. In case the last 6 films didn't beat the dead horse enough, no evil can stand up to the power of love and friendship.
The cast is superb. Ralph Fiennes plays Voldemort with all the charm of a starving snake and a cornered Al Capone. His one scene (seriously, this man only gets one scene?) He stalks about his own group of follows casting fear into the lot of them as if they were his enemies. A disdain for all that lives is at the very presence of the thespians performance, expect Ralph to bring his oscar winning A game in Part 2.
Daniel Radcliffe has come a long way from tiny tot playing pretend. Now a Grown Man pulsing with all the complexities that make Potter this generations favorite flawed Hero. Rupert Grint the voice of comedy is well timed and also dramatic when he has to be and Emma Watson is the definition of brilliant as Hermione.
It's the beginning of the end for the boy who lived and I can't help but feel a little sad. Though this franchise and it's billions will no doubt spawn 3-4 remakes in the next 30-40 years I can't help but feel another chapter of the Hollywood summer film is ending. With Audiences demanding quality acting from there boy, super, and romantic hero's. Hollywood is closing another chapter in film making. The American Block Buster is dead. The Dark Knight, The Next Spider Man, Professor Xavier, Magneto, and Edward Cullen from Twilight are all European. Something tells me that the American Comedian Chris Evans as Captain America isn't going to cause a flux in roles for Americans now that fans demand real talent play there super hero's.
Sorry for going off on a tangent but the Harry Potter Franchise along with the help from Lord of the Rings has case out the idiotic american pretty boy and replaced it with top knotch Thespians. I welcome the change but can't help but feel a bit Nostalgic when ever change occurs.
Pardon the Filler but an incomplete movie is hard enough as it is to rate. I look forward to they day when Part 1 and Part 2 are sold as One Blu Ray titled The Deathly Hallows!
