Harry Potter is back and more gruesome than ever! Don't worry that is… MoreHarry Potter is back and more gruesome than ever! Don't worry that is indeed a good thing. If you are a follower of the books, than there is no way I could spoil anything, but if you just watch the movies, I will try and not to spoil anything. Harry and company are on the run to stop Lord Voldemort, who is wonderfully played by Ralph Fiennes, who has made this sick and twisted wizard into one of my favorite modern movie villains. A lot of critics have complained that this movie is anti-climatic.. I guess they didn't catch that this is part One. David Yates is in the directing chair once again and really captures the danger of magic, something that hasn't been handled with much maturity until this film. At times I felt I was watching "The Bourne Identity", these fights are intense. It may help you to watch part 6 to catch back up on this story, because this film has literally no exposition, and just drops right in. This is something I didn't mind, but if I hadn't of caught up earlier in the week, it probably would of bugged me more. The performances are slick and sharp like they always are, the Potter films have always been strengthened by the wonderful british actors that encompass it. My only complaint would be that there were no action scenes or moments that really stood out. Chamber of Secrets had the Basilisk, Goblet of Fire had the Tournament Challenges, Half-Blood Prince had the wonderful flashbacks; This has, eh.. nothing that was very memorable. Nonetheless, This is a fine installment and a great start to what is looking up to be a Magnificent two-parter! If you haven't seen it, watch it now, if you have, see it again!
