DVD: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (12)
Friday 15 April 2011
The profitable Potter franchise nears its end with this, the first half of the dark final book.
Harry, Ron and Hermione have left Hogwarts and are looking for Horcruxes – which, for the uninitiated, are fragments of Lord Voldemort's soul. The story is complex and David Yates has to assume a vast amount of knowledge in his audience. There are some gripping moments and plenty of how-did-they-do-that CGI – a scene in which seven people turn into seven Harry Potters is eye-catching. But this is a static, plot-driven film with not enough action. One for dedicated Potter fans only.
