Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows : Part 1
Dramatic and dark, the seventh installment in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows : Part 1, is an exciting ride. The characters are on a quest to find the horcruxes. It is dangerous, they are chased, they are tortured, they triumph. The special effects are amazing, the editing is sharp, the acting is skilled. My favorite scene is a wand shoot-out in a coffee shop. The film makes me want to read the book, but I'll wait until I see Part 2 so I don't ruin the ending for myself. As this series goes on, the films just get better. Well done.
