In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part I, Harry faces new troubles; he must collect the Horcruxes that evil Lord Voldemort has left behind to vanquish him. Little does he realize that the final Horcrux is Harry himself. Killing the Horcrux will make him loose all the powers, which make him so much alike the 'Dark Lord" himself. He has no idea, where these are and he has to destroy them all, even without the faintest idea how to do so.
Directed by David Yates, this movie does not allow Harry and his friends to experiment. There is absolutely no room for trials and errors. With the 'Dark Lord" rising in power again, Harry and his team has to ensure that they use all the tricks up their sleeves and magic to vanquish Voldemort. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a thrilling roller coaster ride, which forces you to sit and watch, even though you may have read the novel.
However, the film has been termed both exciting and scary. The lead characters look suave and carry the film with style and give a very 'mature" performance. There was a mixed response after the movie"s release. Many parents did find it to be inappropriate for their little ones because of the scary scene and the smooch, which turned out to be a full blown adult kiss.
The performances of other characters look more menacing than ever. With brilliant sound effects and excellent cinematography, one feels as if he/she is a part of the movie. Step by step, the filmmaker very beautifully drops hints as he unveils the mystery slowly and steadily leaving you satiated yet desperately anticipating the second and final chapter of 'Deathly Hallows'.
Overall, the adventures unfold with not a dull moment and which makes the viewer want to see the part II as soon as possible to know how Harry and his friends ultimately win over the evil forces. It is certainly the 2 hrs and up movie deserves a watch.
