Harry Potter And The Deadly Hallows Part 1

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The first novel of Harry Potter came out in 1997, after that we can’t deny that the novels have stolen our hearts. Years later in 2007, the last book of this series came out and made its loyal-die-hard fans stand for hours to wait for the release of the books, which later sold over 11 million copies in its first day sale. 

A new stage for this series begins in 2001, the time when Warner Bros took over one of the biggest franchise in the world. Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Rent, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) is the lucky director (he gets rid of Stephen Spielberg and Terry Gilliam) to create the magic of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone to become real. The second and third installment, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and The Prisoner’s of Azkaban were released on the years 2004-2005. Alfonso Cuarón and Mike Newell was asked to replace Columbus in the third and fourth films. In 2007, the fifth film, titled Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix finally reached the hands of David Yates. Yates with his magical touch managed to create darkness in this film and it is followed with his sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The dark atmosphere Yates brings, confirmed his place to direct the last installation of this series.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is divided into two parts, which makes me believe that the presence of the film isn’t made solely after money reason, but chasing the integrity of the story. Part two will come out in May 2011 and I guarantee will make its die-hard fans can’t wait of its presence.

I won’t discuss the story to you. There are quite enough reviews out there to explain the story. In this first part of the series, I want to shake hand with Yates and thank him for everything he does with this film. If you are a loyal reader of this book, the beginning of the story is just spin on the Horcrux finding quest and (maybe) status identity finding quest for the three of our main characters. In the deepest forests, they wandered to nowhere. At first glance it sounds boring, because they only focused on the conversation about Horcruxes, Hermione’s discovery of the Horcruxes, the night comes, the trio set a spell and tents, so repeatedly. But Yates managed to make it isn’t boring and for some reason, I like the part when Harry asked Hermione to dance to music from the radio. Somehow, the scene made me feel their characters become human. Yes they are witch and wizard, they will face the Dark Lord with a large pet snake, then why? They basically are just youngsters who are also struggling with their romance problems. The scene is by any means translate the statement properly. And that’s when I fell in love with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.

The scenes are exciting and thrilling, dark and ominous. The ending of the first part did not disappoint us. Feels so right and satisfying. For new fans (who did not watch the previous films or read the book), I think this film is able to capture that kind of target audience. Because the tension generated after watching this movie makes me want to watch its six previous installations. Although I dare say, the seventh installation is able to make its predecessor became standard.

In the end, the portion of action and drama that is not balanced well in his sixth installation has been fixed in the seventh film. Both portions are arranged neatly and not excessive, gives us a good introduction of the great ending to the best-selling novel in the history.
