Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I
In this next-to-the-last chapter in this blockbuster series of films based on the best selling novels of J. K. Rowling, Professor
Dumbledore is no more and Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and his
growing army of Death Eaters have gone on a rampage to destroy the Order
of the Phoenix as well as ridding the world of "Muggles" (
non-wizards). Part of that plans involves taking over the Ministry of
Magic, forcing Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his best friends
Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley, (Rupert Grint) to find and
destroy the remaining Horcruxes in order to
defeat the evil wizard and his Death Eaters.
first half of "Deathly Hallows" has a very different look
and feel from the previous films but although it's darker and more sinister, it never strays too far from the tone
we've come to expect. Harry and his friends find themselves on the run as they attempt to avoid Lord Voldemort's Snatchers, since Voldemort announced that he and no
one else will put an end to Harry Potter, and it must be done at once.
Realizing the danger he's in, Harry moves his immediate family (Richard Griffiths, Fiona Shaw and Harry Melling) out of
Privet Drive. But still, sensing danger, Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson) insists upon replicating Harry sevenfold so that the
Death Eaters won't know which is the real one when they come after him; which they promptly do in a spectacular nocturnal airborne chase that
ends up at the Weasleys' isolated home.
Harry's only hope of stopping Voldemort lies in his destroying the Horcruxes. Inscrutable clues have been left behind by
Dumbledore, but an encounter with former house elves Kreacher and Dobby reveals that one Horcrux is in
the possession of the students' former tormenter, the diminutive lady in
pink, Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton). That begins one of the most entertaining sequences in the film which involves the kids' risky
visit to the Ministry of Magic, where Umbridge works as a judge now that
the goon squad has taken over.
Transforming themselves physically into
the bodies of minor wizards, Harry, Ron and Hermione sneak about in a bureaucracy strewn with posters branding Harry
