Potter (Radcliff) is the chosen one. He and his two best friends Ron (Grint)
and Hermonie (Watson) , are on one of their greatest challenges yet - to find
the remaining Horcruxes andkill Lord
Voldemort, the only problem is they have no idea where they are and half of the
world are looking for them!
Unarguably , one of the most anticipated films of 2010, which to everybody’s surprise, does not take
place within the walls of Hogwarts. Harry, Ron and Hermonie are on an epic
journey to find the remaining Horcruxes,before Voldemort finds them. Does Harry know what he’s doing? Most
definitely not, but he may be about to learn a lot more about Dumbledore’s past than he ever imagined.
From the minute
this film appears on the screen, you’re instantly plunged into a world of mystifying complexity,from the gothic styled Warner Brothers
emblem, to the sharp and snappy camera angles, accompanied by the famous Harry
Potter theme tune, which this time seems to have a subtle enigmatic tone to it. If
this is all too muchfor your senses to
bear, then leave at once, because although this film has some sense of reality
within it, with it’s amazingly witty and intelligent characters, itis also fantastically darkand full of eye popping special effectswaiting to pounce at you in every scene.
The genius of this film is that
Yatesalong with his producers has
developed a style which theyhave been
able to pursue as the Harry Potter films have
grown. Yates doesn’t leave his audience behind, the connection between the latter film
and the current are seamless. The characters ofHarry, Ronand Hermonie are
played as though J. K. Rowling herself were the director, the acting and
dialogue is simply flawless, something that the creators of the Twilight saga
can only dream of.
However Yates isn’t the only the one responsible for the
jaw dropping success of this film. The actors also give a phenomenal
performance with some new famous faces appearing in this film; Bill Nighy (the
Minister for Magic) Has added a certain sense of light heartedness to the film, unleashing his charm and wit onto the
audience. Certain compliments must also
be giving to Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort), who despite his characters persona and
reputation manages to crack a couple of jokes with his fellow mates AKA the
Death Eaters. We even see a slight hint of a smile appear across his ‘face’ -
which lets face it, isn’t exactlya common occurrence for the darkest wizard of all time!
VERDICT It’s heart- warming,
funny and you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy it, in fact it may even take you
back to your childhood.
