Summary and Review of the Movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.
As Voldemort's power is growing stronger. Harry, Ron and Hermione decides to finish Dumbledore's work and find the rest of the Holcruxes to defeat the Dark Lord, Voldemort. Voldemort is taking over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. But there's little hope for the Harry, Ron and Hermione and the rest of the Wizarding World.... they must all plan well.
(Did you know M. Night Shymalan was interested to direct this movie? Linguist expert Dr. Francis Nolan devised the Parseltongue language for this and the other Harry Potter films which feature the serpent speak.)
Harry Potter movies always gives me a sense of getting out of this world. Ahhhh. And how I don't want the movie to end. Of course the ending makes you want to watch the Part 2 already!!!
This one was nicely made. And to say nice is an underrated description because it exceeds all expectations of both casual viewers and hardcore fans. Very loyal to the book (read it 2 years back or so). The characters gave a really strong performance, making you hate them (if they are supposed to be hated) and making you love them even more.
The movie matches the Title. Being all doom-and-gloomy specially it's cinematography. The soundtrack matched it as well (but, I missed the magical light soundtrack of HP by John Williams.. but I know it doesn't fit the gloomy setting in this installment.)
It also startles you at the right moment. It has a mix of dark and light.. and a lil emotional here and there... basta it's Great! Great! Great!!! :)
I can watch it over and over again and still enjoy this great film.
Quotes I like:
Pius Thicknesse: You have nothing to fear, if you have nothing to hide.
Bellatrix Lestrange: You stupid elf! You could have killed me!
Dobby the House Elf: Dobby never meant to kill! Dobby only meant to maim, or seriously injure!
Harry Potter: This is mental.
Hermione : Completely mental.
Ron Weasley: The world's mental.
Bellatrix Lestrange: How dare you defy your master!
Dobby: Dobby has no master. Dobby is a free elf, and Dobby has come to save Harry Potter and his friends!
Ron Weasley: The deluminator. It doesn't just turn off lights. I don't know how it work but Christmas morning, I was sleeping in this little pub, keeping away from some Snatchers, and I heard it. A voice. Your voice, Hermione. You said my name. Just my name. Like a whisper. So I took it, clicked it and this tiny ball of light appeared. And I knew. It flew towards me, the ball of light, right through my chest and straight through me. Right here
[he touches his heart]
Ron Weasley: And I knew it was going to take me where I needed to go.
