Movie Review: Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1

Selepas tgk Twilight:Eclipse, aku dah takder tgk any movie langsung. Kalo ader pon...tgk DVD kat umah jer. Reason...


& xder movie yg layak tgk kat cinema pon. That is until this movie show....Aku dah kumpul all 6 DVD of the previous Harry Potter movie, so...definitely I wont miss watching the movie at cinema.

Back to the review. Well.... this is the final book from the author J.K. Rowling (if korg x tau) and in order to make it more interesting, the director split the movie into 2 part.

After Dumbledore died in the Half Blood Prince, all has gone wrong. Voldermort getting stronger & stronger. He use his Death Eater to get hold on most of all importants title just to make sure all the Aurors & most importantly, Harry Potter is on the run. & Harry? Well his hope lies in the remaining of the Auror of the Order of the Phoenix.

Just as a reminder...if korg tak tgk previous movie or the previous novel before watching this movie, it will be like you watching The Matrix Reloaded without watching the Animatrix: The Flight of the Phoenix. Get it?

Back to the review...

Unfortunetely, the Order of the Phoenix also are losing its member, one by one. So...lastly it come to Harry, Hermione & Ron to at least try to kill Voldermort before he take over the world. In order to do so, the three of them need to solve the final puzzle that Dumbledore has left to them inside his will.

To Ron, Dumbledore left The Diluminator; an object that can capture any light in the room when close. When open, will restore the light back to where it came from. The Diluminator also can help the owner to find what he want the most as Ron need it when he left Harry & Hermione out of jealousy due to the effect of the Horcrux (Ha?? What is this? dont worry, I will explain it later) and then realize his mistake and from the Diluminator, Ron heard Hermione voice and follow it until it bring him to them.

To Hermione, Dumbledore left his copy of The Tales of Beedle The Bard in the hope that she can find it entertaining to read as well as instructive. With the book, Hermione the beauty with brain manage to find the location of the item they looking for.

And to Harry, Dumbledore leave him the Snitcher; the one that he won during his first game of Quidditch. The Snitcher will play a big part in part 2 of the Deathly Hallows as it will reveal the 2nd of the Deathly Hallows that Harry are looking for. Dumbledore also leave Harry the Sword of Gryffindor. Unfortunetely....the sword is missing.

The will of Dumbledore are very important as it will help them to find what they need to destroy Voldermort which is the Horcrux:A Horcrux is an object in which a Dark wizard or witch has hidden a fragment of his or her soul for the purpose of attaining immortality. The Diary of Tom Riddle is an example of the Horcrux.

In order to find the balance of the Horcruxes, they went back to Sirius Black house for shelter as well as to sort things out. In the house, where they find the clue to find one of the Horcrux: The locket of Salazar Slytherin. This locket cannot be unmade except being crush by its arch enemy.

One by one they find the Horcruxes until they find out about the Deathly Hallows.

Symbol of the Deathly Hallows

"The Elder Wand," he said, and he drew a straight vertical line on the parchment. "The Resurrection Stone," he said, and he added a circle on top of the line. "The Cloak of Invisibility," he finished, enclosing both line and circle in a triangle, to make the symbol that so intrigued Hermione. "Together," he said, "the Deathly Hallows."
—Xenophilius Lovegood

As it says, the Deathly Hallows are the only way to kill Voldermort as the one who own the Deathly Hallows, He will master Death. So instead of searching for the Horcruxes, Harry, Hermione & Ron opt to search for the Deathly Hallows. Unfortunetely, when they realize about this, they have been capture and brought to Malfoy Manor. This is the place where Harry fight with Draco Malfoy who in the Half Blood Prince disarm Dumbledore from his wand. Harry manage to defeat Draco and also escape the Manor with the help of Dobby who died in order to save them.

With regards to the Deathly Hallows....
  1. The Elder Wand which is the most powerful Wand created by Death. He who want to possess the wand have to defeat or disarm the wand from the owner. The owner of the wand is non other than Dumbledore himself. In the end of Part 1 of the Deathly Hallows, Voldermort take the wand from Dumbledore grave.
  2. The Resurrection Stone. He who possess the stone can call back his love one who has passway. Harry do not know about it, but the stone is with him.
  3. The Invicible Cloak. He who own this cloak will be invisible. Harry own this as a gift from Dumbledore.

Harry, Hermione & Ron has come along way from the first movie/book. From just a small boy, until becoming a teenager. Just to be frank, I wasn't into the Harry Potter thingy. Why? Well....mula2 dolu crite dia psl mls ar nak tgk. But since I did buy the dvds thus make me a follower in a way, I need to watch the movie at cinema rather than watching at home via dvd.

Whats my verdict? 4 out of 5 Star. I didnt read the book so I didnt know how much the film differentiate from the book but at least I manage to understand the storyline..

So now...lets wait for the Part 2 of the Deathly Hallows which going to be release in July 2011.

P/s: Dah beso dah Emma Watson tu eh? Cun plak tuh...
