Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 1 Film Review!

As FILMCLUB Young Ambassador, 13-year-old Ben Angus was lucky enough to see the latest Harry Potter film before the rest of the country!

However, he was kind enough to let us know what he thought and to give you some idea of what to expect.

harry-potter6As a huge fan of the Harry Potter films, I was very excited to be asked by FILMCLUB to attend the film premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

I know my friends are really jealous, so I can’t wait to tell them that the film did not disappoint!

The story follows Harry and friends as they go on the run from the evil Voldemort and his followers. Voldemort is slowly but surely gaining power and more people are turning to the dark side, including the ministry of magic. The only way that Harry can try and defeat Voldemort, is to find Horcruxes as they are the secret to Voldemort’s immortality.

To the horror of the three friends the Deathly Hallows could possibly give Voldemort the devastating power he seeks – and so the battle to defeat Voldemort really begins…

harry-potter2All the hype surrounding the film is justified as Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is an absolutely fantastic film. It’s hard to find a fault. The story is gripping right the way through. You are constantly trying to figure out the twists and turns and the scary scenes really add to the excitement of the film – be warned though – they are perfectly placed to make you jump!

There are some slow moments as for the majority of the film, Hermione, Ron and Harry are in hiding in a forest in the middle of nowhere, however this just make the action sequences even more exciting because of the contrast in pace.

harry-manyI certainly won’t give away the ending of the film, but lets just say that although it is a bit clichéd, it does give a great place for the final instalment to follow on from and I certainly think it’s going to be an even darker time for Harry.

Overall I would say that compared to the other films in the series it is not only the best so far, but also the scariest – Bring on Part 2!

Rating: 5/5
