The Deathly Hallows Part I is by far the best adaptation of the Harry Potter series so far. Whereas the Half Blood Prince took liberties with the plot by including new scenes and skmimming over those which perhaps ought to have been longer, this movie not only is unprecedentedly devoted to the book, but captures the feel of the book exactly, without being overly miserable. This is no mean feat, as the Deathly Hallows is the most difficult and harrowing of the books, particularly with much of it focusing on the trio camping in wildnerness, it could have become tired and repetetive but the movie was very well paced and these scenes were particularly well-handled by the director and actors.

I was literally on the edge of my seat for the dramatic, sinister and action-packed parts of the movie and the tensions was brilliantly dispersed throughout, making me jump when I least expected it. More than this, the film managed to be incredibly moving and poignant, while still lightening the mood occasionally with some much needed humour. Of course, there is much less humour in this movie than in its predecessors, but that is to be expected. One of my favourite scenes was in the beginning where Hermione, knowing the danger before her, wiped her parents' memories in order to protect them. Then she walks out of her home and down the street, alone and apparently empty handed, never to return. I would go as far as to say that in this scene the movie surpassed the book, and its poignancy was enhanced by Emma Watson's beatiful portrayal of Hermione, and this movie showcases her incredible talent.

This one is for lovers of the books - not "non fans" or smug critics who do not appreciate the genius of JK Rowling or the original target audience she was aiming to reach with her books i.e 11 to 18 year olds. Or for those who harp on about how it is impossible to recreate the books as the media of film is so different - duhhh. With the money Warner's are making - anything is possible and thankfully this has come to pass.....

I think I have been to the cinema about 3 times in the last 10 years, but had to see this one. I was prepared to be a bit dissapointed, as I have been from Prisoner onwards. However this film is very close to the book, even going so far as to mop up plotlines missed or skirted around in the other films.
The tone of the movie is set from the outset, with poignant scenes of Hermione and Harry leaving their family homes never to return. Didn't even mind that they missed out Dudley's epiphany with regard to Harry.
The escape scene was comedic then epic in equal measure.
The wedding at the Burrow was rushed but all the important parts were there.
Criticism has been levelled at the long shots of the British countryside during the camping phase. I think that people who poo-poo these are missing the point - they set the tone of the character's isolation and separation from the rest of their world. Plus, what an advert for British tourism!
The finding of the Sword of Gryffindor and the visit to Godric's Hollow were spot on. The capture by the snatchers and the scenes at the Malfoy's manor were brilliant, thanks in no small part, to Helena Bonham-Carters joyously spiteful portrayal of Bellatrix. I'm also so glad they included Dobby this time as he has been a key character that was badly missed from previous efforts.

I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, and while I've always liked the films, they never usually lived up to the books. Then I saw Deathly Hallows Part 1. This is easily the best film of the series so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing the second part in July.

From the very first scene, this film sticks almost word-for-word to the book. There are a few changes; for instance, Hedwig's death is handled differently than in the book and Kreacher's tale is skimmed over a little. But, apart from that, it's very difficult to pick out any major plot changes. The writing is better than it has been on the previous films, particularly towards the end. The Godric's Hollow scenes are both moving and terrifying (possibly a little too scary for under 12s?), and the claustrophobic, desperate mood of the book is conveyed really well while the trio are travelling around the country in search of Voldemort's horcruxes. All three of the main actors seem to have pulled their acting skills out of nowhere in this film. Emma Watson is particularly good in the first scene when she erases her parents' memories, and also at the end when she is tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange at Malfoy Manor. The scene where Harry and Hermione dance to 'O Children' by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds is one of the saddest and most well-acted scenes in the film.

Visually, this film is easily the most beautiful. It's wonderfully shot and directed, and you can see that they seized the opportunities provided by the 'road movie' nature of the story. There are amazing dark scenes, but there are also gorgeous, colourful parts. The chase through the woods is very well filmed.
