Last night marked the end of yet another Harry Potter weekend on ABC Family channel. So what better time to take a look at the highly anticipated first chapter of Harry Potters final big screen adventure.
First off, I am glad they are splitting the last book into two movies. There is no doubt there will be enough content in that epic novel to easily fill two or even three movies. The last few films have been somewhat hard to sit through, the action moves so quickly from scene to scene, three months have gone by after you blink. Giving the adventure room to grow to its potential will be a plus in this grand finale event.
Finding and destroying all of Voldemort’s Horcruxes will take time and should be done so with an epic touch. The theatrical trailer certainly looks promising. Although it is still a little hard to tell how promising because certain special effects have not been rendered into the film yet so some parts of the trailer look a bit strange and slow.
Still, the spell binding action and critical characters look to be present and accounted for. Director David Yates will hopefully deliver this handle-with-care gift to theaters with all the fireworks and wand sparks it deserves. The darkest of all the films should not be taken lightly, and judging by what I have seen, it is headed in the right direction.
The boy who lived will face part one of the final showdown November of this year. The phenomenon will conclude with its final chapter next July.
What do you think? Will this film stand up to its paper predecessor or fall flat? Will you go see it?
