Harry has to destroy the Horcruxes before Voldemort kills him.
Given the huge disappointment on the last instalment, this movie was a big leap. It captured nearly all the key points of the book, but not entirely. There were some scenes added out of creative invention and some were omitted, to support the pace of the film. Nevertheless, it was a good movie to begin the epic ending.
The movie seized the intense situation of the story. All that it takes was just to see the New Minister of Magic speaking forcefully to the public. I can already feel that the tension building. That the situation they were in was not a child’s play. The Chase for the Potters scene was enough to hook you for the whole movie. The jets of green and red light were impressive. It even gave me a jolt, as if I was hit by one.
The camera caught all the necessary elements of every scene. The transitions were seamless. The visual effects were superficial. From the casted spells to the destroyed chandelier, it all looked real. The soundtrack was engaging. It really added gravity on the emotions evoked on every scene. I always came to a halt.
The Tale of Three Brothers was the part I more interested. I’m glad that the movie didn’t disappoint. It was no doubt the best of all animated flashbacks I have ever seen. In case you don’t know, it was the story on how the Deathly Hallows came to be. It showed vivid vectors of the characters involved with an ambient environment. The dynamic music was more of a guide than just a background. Watch out for this scene, I assure you will adore it.
As a reader of the series, I can’t help but noticed some of the alterations. One of which was the reconciliation of Dudley and Harry. It might not be an important foundation for the plot but it may be essential to Harry’s character. Although they had the chance to forecast an engaging fight, they only focused on Harry. That was a bit of disappointment. Harry didn’t hand the locket to Kreacher. That was supposed the reason why Kreacher started to trust and obey Harry. I guess they didn’t give care to minor details.
Some may have been uneasy and violent on what the movie was about. Harry was a fugitive. He camped on forest for the most part of the movie to avoid arrest and death. But rest assured, that was Part 1 was all about. Personally, I didn’t expect much, apart from the animated flashback. The breath-taking moments were long deposited to the last part of the book. Seeing how the movie may look like assured me that the finale will not be wasted.
PS: Harry didn’t put the socks to the corpse. It was less emotional.
