stick to the book
Here's what's wrong: a novel sells billions of copies, and then the
director thinks people want to see their interpretation (which means
they sacrifice important plot points for their own tepid inventions).
How do you exist with a head so big? Anyway, here's the plot, Harry
Potter doesn't realize it, but Darth Voldemort is his father. And! If
Harry can only take the apparently alternate-lifestyle Sam with him to
the top of the volcanic mountain and throw in the ring, then the
annoying emo chick with the pale face and the vampire fetish will die,
which will bring about peace in The Middle East and erase all memories
of the Telletubies. But, before they do that they must spend 2/3rds of
the movie camping in England, living off of stolen canned boiled food
(which is a major contributing factor in the grave dental challenges to
the people of that island). In part 2, Ron will hopefully get laid..

Harry Gets Lost In The Woods...
Oh dear... Has the Potter Franchise lost its way?
I read as many reviews as I could... The negative ones are often
hilarious, my favorite quip being:
"There was so much angst in this movie, it could have been in Swedish
with English subtitles."
This reviewer's humorous aside is well-observed. We get bags of it
throughout 145 anguished minutes. Gone is the subtle light-and-shade of
earlier episodes. Screenwriter's opted for a more "adult-tone" in
Hallows 1 - I'm not sure it works.
To handle teenage relationships on film, one needs a sensitive
approach. Harry's often moving feelings about his friends and family,
rendered with accomplished poise by Cuaron in Prisoner Of Azkaban, has
The current Hallows director, Dave Yates, has his roots in Cops &
Robbers TV Shows. Great for action-movies... We all love 'em. But
Potter Stories are always more subtle than that. But "subtle" Dave
ain't. I think many a fan will notice.
Someone in the Warner Camp made a (questionable) decision to bring Dave
back. (This will be his third film). This one single decision may be
the death knell for the Potter Film Series. I do find myself wondering
why that decision was made?
Since Hallows is not out on DVD yet, I won't reveal too many plot
details. Many fans may not have had opportunity to see this at the
cinema. Fortunately, there are not many plot details to be had! The
screenplay flies along with many a disorientating "transition" from one
confusing scene to the next. There are too many fast transitions - a
device that needs to be used sparingly at the best of times.
The considerable acting talents of Fiennes and Bonham-Carter save this
celluloid mêlée from complete disaster, while director and screenwriter
race through Rowling's Well-crafted Magical World at the speed of
light. It's not a boring film... It just doesn't do the fans justice.
Alas, most of the actors remain under-utilized. Bill Nighy labors under
an accent I am yet to identify, Evanna Lynch's Luna, so memorable in
previous films, is demoted to a bit part. And the list goes on...
Rated: PG-13, it looks suspiciously like Warner Brothers attempted to
avoid 18 Certification, thus keeping "Hallows Part 1" firmly pointed at
the (more lucrative) family market. But Hallows 1 is a half-way house,
neither full-blown adult fantasy, or charming kids adventure . Torture,
murder and overtly sexual scenes are peppered throughout jarring action
sequences. A departure from the earlier films that could prove fatal to
In classic Hollywood tradition, workable ideas are "borrowed" from
other notable films. The power of the locket to affect wearers
negatively is lifted straight from Lord Of The Rings. Dobby's
death-scene reminded me of Yoda's comical demise. Comic because the
film-makers are asking us to take the death of an animated character
seriously. This never quite works, I feel, no matter how good the CGI.
Come now, film-makers, credit your audience with more intelligence-
Highlights: Ron (Rupert Grint) manages comic irony - much needed in
this film. Bellatrix (Bonham-Carter) is deliciously evil and dramatic
(though we have to wait over an hour to see her in action).
Gaffs: Dobby appears to have undergone a face-lift! Only book-fans will
understand Harry's Mirror Shard. A motorway chase in a Potter Movie?
Why..? Ron's corny "ball of light" speech... (No-one looked convinced)..
