Trivia

(At around one minute) Near the start of the film, Hermione is in her bedroom reading the Daily Prophet. This mirrors the book, where Harry is in his room at Privet Drive reading the Prophet about the past of Dumbledore. See more »

Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as goofs. During Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, we learn that it takes at least a month to brew a batch of Polyjuice potion. However, Harry, Hermione, and Ron seem to have brewed up a batch virtually overnight when they infiltrated the Ministry of Magic. In the book, it was stated that Hermione obtained a supply of Polyjuice Potion from Mad-Eye Moody's private stores. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Rufus Scrimgeour: These are dark times, there is no denying. Our world has perhaps faced no greater threat than it does today. But I say this to our citizenry: We, ever your servants, will continue to defend your liberty and repel the forces that seek to take it from you! Your Ministry remains strong.

Crazy Credits

The end credits are in 3D gold text. When they conclude, the Deathly Hallows symbol appears, first in extreme close-up with all three items rotating independently (like the one Mr. Lovegood wears around his neck), then shrinks down with the title appearing centered across it. Next, the line fades out followed by the circle and, as the triangle fades out, the Elder Wand appears in its place. See more »

True Harry Potter fans will be let down after watching Deathly Hallows Part 1
16 December 2010 | by matchbox51See all my reviews

I am thoroughly disappointed after seeing this installment of the movie. After reading every book multiple times and seeing them portrayed on the big screen I've been fairly happy with the way the directors/producers have instilled the quality of J.K's writing style.

However, after seeing the 'Deathly Hallows Part 1' I am very disappointed the way they left out such large amounts of information and action that was included in the books. The earlier movies did a good job holding their parts of the book series, but the Deathly Hallows seems to have been slashed into bits and pieces and has not meant my standards whatsoever when it comes to including the magic of the writing from the book itself.

There are many parts of the book that were missing in just this first half of the last installment of the movies; the second part I'm afraid is going to end up being just the same way.

There was plenty of good graphics and the sequencing was decent, but as I said there was just too much missing for me to enjoy the movie. Parts were ruined by rushing through details that would ultimately help explain the story line/plot much better - some parts were just skipped completely.

Now I understand that the books are very long and are hard to portray into a movie, and there is an acceptable amount of loss of quality from paper to the big screen, but that fine line was crossed (at least in my eyes) and completely ruined this movie for me.

I still would suggest watching the movie. For those of you who haven't read the books, you will enjoy the movie much more than I did, but even those who haven't read the books will notice there is something missing from the plot.

I will be waiting for part 2 to make a final decision on the last installment of the movie series, but as of right now I stand disappointed.

I rated the movie a 6 out of 10 since the story was still there (but lax) and the characters were played out decently (but had much room to grow). I would have given this movie a much higher rating if it were to have grabbed my attention more often rather than skim over such large parts of the book - even those small things, which make the books so good, were missing. Without the smaller segments included in the movie it just feels like something much different from the book, and for those of us who truly are looking for a great portrayal of the book on the big screen this just wasn't enough.
