This is one hell of a film and is the perfect start to the end of the series. Would be nice if there was more to the stories but what we have is great indeed. The director David Yates did a wonderful job portraying all of the troubles and danger that is shown in the book as Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione start looking for a way to get rid of Tom Riddle, aka Lord Voldemort permanently. You are kept on your toes as you wonder what is going to happen to them next.
While I am a fan of Chris Columbus’ version of the first 2 films this rendition of book 7 is a real treat. We don’t get all the gritty blackness that we has with some of the other films. Yates’ renditions just keep getting better and better. We don’t have bad sound to make it more mysterious. What we have is actual true colors that you would see and not just filtered scenes. You get to actually see the acting that is being done by this wonderful cast of characters and actors. Emma, Daniel and Rupert are wonderful in these roles and this film shows that.
The 3 friends are trying to find the Horcruxes, items that each store a part of Voldemort’s soul. Once they are able to find them all and destroy them all they will finally be able to get rid of the dark lord forever. Too much has been caused by the villain to let him get off with nothing more and nothing less then his total destruction and removal from this earth. This film also does not have any school scenes as Harry decided to not go to school as he felt that it just was not safe. He is determined to make Riddle pay for the loss of friends and family from over the years. He feels that because of the dark lord and himself too many innocent people have died and he want to see it end permanently, even if it is to cost him his own life.
Gone are the kid films and welcome to the dark world of wizardry. This is a film worth seeing and I can tell you I am going to make sure to buy a copy of the film just as soon as it is sold in the stores. Till then get to the theater and see just how thrilling this film really is.
