In the latest installment in the Harry Potter series, The Deathly Hallows, Harry, Ron, and Hermione (Daniel Radcliff, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson) must leave their loved ones and set out on their own, so that no more harm will come to their families because of Lord Voldemortâ€™s (Ralph Fiennes) passion to kill Harry Potter. While on the run they are searching for the Horcruxes, which are the secret to Voldemort’s immortality. Harry, who is â€œThe Chosen Oneâ€,to put an end to Voldemortâ€™s destruction must find these Horcruxes and destroy them, if he is going to have any chance at killing the evil sorcerer. But as he searches for clues to the whereabouts of the Horcruxes, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale, the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
Meanwhile Voldemort has taken over the Ministry of Magic and even the Hogwarts School with his gang of Death Eaters, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. He has also requested that none of the Death Eaters try and kill Harry, but instead bring him to Voldemort alive, so that he himself can have the pleasure of killing Potter. The only problem with that is he and Harryâ€™s wands cannot be used against one another in a battle to the death, so Voldemort must find another wand to use, if he is going to be able to conquer Potter. So he too is on a search, for such a wand that can give him his most valuable accomplishment, that of killing â€œthe boy who livedâ€. Harry is no longer a boy, he is now a teenager and heâ€™s drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
I have loved all of the Harry Potter movies, and have patiently waited for each installment. I am not the only one who has been waiting, as the movie made over $125 million dollars in its opening weekend. Itâ€™s been 9 years since the first movie came out and Daniel Radcliff has grown older throughout the story, which has coincided with the storyline very well. This is the last installment, and has been made into two parts, this one being the first part and the second part coming out in theaters in July 15th 2011. With each new chapter the action has gotten better and better and this one has a lot of that. Throughout the whole movie, Harry, Hermione, and Ron must battle the evil sorcerers, the Death Eaters, and constantly try to stay one step ahead of their grasps. Just like in the last installment when Professor Dumbledore died, there will be casualties of war in this chapter as well. I feel when the next chapter comes out; these 8 movies will be labeled as the longest and by far the best book to movie adaptations of all time.
For kids and adults alike, itâ€™s been a great journey watching the characters of Harry Potter literally age right before our eyes. I gave this movie 4 spells out of 4. Itâ€™s definitely turning into a great cinematic ending to a well written story. The movie runs 2 hours and 30 minutes, but the story moves so fast, it seemed like a shorter amount of time. Itâ€™s rated PG-13 for some sequences of intense action violence and frightening images. It was written by Steve Kloves from the source material of J.K. Rowling. The film was directed by David Yates. It was produced by Heyday Films, and was distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
