The clue really is in the 'Part One' bit in the title - however this ends, it's not going to be with all of the threads neatly tied off, that is just in the nature of the beast. A film in two parts! I think that's something of an achievement.

It's getting darker, which effectively means that there's less colour in it, and the central characters are much more isolated, which means that far more of the story depends on three young actors (who have each done six feature films already to be fair) and it's not set in the amazing school, so wherever they hide is going to have to be quite interesting - my favourite campsite is under the cooling tower, but the Forest of Dean looks good too, where Hermione says 'Let's just stay here and grow old' - that's a very good moment - and, just when it runs the risk of becoming boring, Ron rescues the situation by getting mad because he's bored. The big question is 'How long can you stand being stuck in a tent with three teens?' and that is as much a criticism of the book as the film, in fact the film seems to get away with it rather better.

And much of the rest is very good; starting with Hermione wiping herself out of her parents' memories - obviously it's the kindest thing to do but (as has been said before) she's a bit scary sometimes.

And then the flight from Little Whynging and Mr Radcliffe does a nice job of impersonating all the other characters - I laughed very loudly - and it all goes so badly wrong I don't blame him at all for wanting to leave The Burrow.

There have been some mixed reviews of this movie, but they are mostly positive. Obviously this movie is different from the other six as it is not set in Hogwarts, and Harry begins his darkest adventure yet to seek out and destroy the seven horcruxes.

I felt like there was more emphasis in romance in the movie than there was in the book as the scenes including Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione/Harry affect a lot of the screenplay. I have to say that the thing I didn't like about this movie was the ending. Yes, it left you with baited breath waiting for the next movie, but I felt that it was slightly cold given that something tragic (I won't mention what in case you haven't seen it yet!) had just happened. Well, it was tragic in my opinion. The combination of touching scenes, mournful deaths, and the knowledge that one of my favourite things in the whole wide world was coming to a close resulted in me blubbering my way through the majority of this movie. Literally right from the onset when i saw the 'WB' sign appear and the eerie music begin.

This movie is action packed, as obviously there is quite a lot of content to get through, despite the fact that the book has already been split into two movies. A lot of the minor characters who we love don't feature very much in Part 1, but hopefully they'll play a bigger role in Part 2, especially near the end as the finale approaches. Part 1 is focussed on Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, and the trio does not disappoint! This movie has moments of comedy, tragedy, suspense and action. If you haven't already seen this then you definitely need to buy it and watch it, even if you're not a fan, it's one of those things you've got to watch.

As with every other Potter movie, viewers unacquainted with the novels may be somewhat in the dark when it comes to figuring out just why a certain character turns up out of the ether for no apparent reason, or why an object happens to be at the bottom a stream. You should not have to read the book to understand the movie. If that's necessary then the movie has failed to fulfil its brief. That said, if you can overlook these jarring occurrences, the whole thing picks up pace eventually, and progresses to an open end that will lead into the second part of The Deathly Hallows.

Potter by name and nature, the plot dithers and meanders aplenty. I found the Potter and Hermione wilderness camping section particularly slow going, just as it was in the book. Some of the teen angst elements are also irksome, but then I suppose this resonates with its target teen audience. When the story does get its act together, it makes exciting and entertaining viewing. The special effects are good, though at times not especially dazzling or convincing. However, the makeup, costumes and set designs compensate nicely, making the whole thing highly watchable.

The acting of the lead parts is wooden in places. This is especially apparent when they are playing opposite the skilled likes of Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith. Watson does at last find some genuine on-screen emotion this time around, though Radcliffe is as ever lacking in the anger department. On the other hand, Grint excels himself, and comes across the most convincing of the trio.

The box artwork is better than most in the series, and we are spared the death-by-Photoshop doctorings of past DVD covers. Rowling's rambling prose inevitably shapes the movie. It is about an hour longer than required to tell the story, mainly due to the interminable "tent" section. Nonetheless, it is a worthy instalment to the saga.
