Review 'Harry Potter - Deathly Hallows Part 1' 'Two Jews On Film' Don't Find The Magic (Video)

November 19th, 2010 9:40am EST | Two Jews On Film By: Two Jews On Film

'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 1' is the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, told in two parts.  It's directed by David Yates and written by Steven Kloves.  The crew is back...Daniel Radcliff (Harry Potter) Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) Helena Bonham Carter (Death Eater) and the unrecognizable, Ralph Fiennes as the super evil Lord Voldemort. Bill Nighy joins the cast as The Minister of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour.  Of all the Harry Potter films, for this one in particular, it helps if you read the book. Basically things are not good throughout the land.  In fact they're really, really bad. The dark forces have taken over and Muggles are being rounded up and killed.  Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on a perilous mission...to track down and destroy the Horcruxes-the keys to Voldemort's immortality.  As Harry searches for them. he uncovers and old and almost forgotten tale - the legend of the Deathly Hallows.  If the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.  The film has everything the previous ones had; wand fighting, evil guys, good guys, adorable elves, goblins and of course magic, but it also drags in places and is way too long. I mean how many times can you watch people explode.   But if you're a big fan of the books and under the age of ten, you'll probably have a great time going on this trip with Harry and his friends.  Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 1 opens in theaters, Friday, November 19.2010.
