Pros:Acting, Settings, Comical

Cons:Certain parts were changed

The Bottom Line: I think its a must see, because they really brought the book to life.


Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie's plot.

The Harry Potter series is starting to cross over into darker, more mature territory. His anxiety for certian people have grown stronger, and now is entering into a place where he doesnt know who to trust, and what thier motativations are.

When the movie came out, I was really excited. I have read all of the books, and was interested to find out if the director,(David Yates), kept to the books story line or veered away from it.

The story picks up where it left off, which is, everyone is the Wizarding community has finally believed what Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), and Dumbledore (Micheal Gambon), has been saying for a while, Voldemort is back. Which basically turns the city into a ghost town, due to fear.

Many changes have happened at Hogwarts. Since Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Stauton) has lefted, the Defense agasint the Dark Arts position is open, which is filled by another of Harry's enemies, Severus Snape (Alan Rickman). Also, Dumbledore has asked his fellow colleagaue, Horace Slugohrn (Jim Broadent), to fill the position as the potions teacher.

Underneath all of that, Harry, is starting to develop a weird obsession with Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton), becuase he is trying to figure out what special assignment Draco has been given by Voldemort himself.

During the whole film, there is a lot of references to Voldemort's past life. The movie wasnt really helpful as to why theyre were going back into his memories, but it is a starting piece to the puzzle as to what they are trying to discover. If you havent read the books, you probably didnt really understand, but mostly likely everything will be explained in the next movie.

It was actually a pretty comical film. There was more romane, but without being overdone. Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) is confused about thier emotions towards eachother. While, Harry is having conflicting emotions about Ginny (Bonnie Wright), as to if he views her as more than just Ron's sister.

Some of the things that they decide to do in the movie was confusing. Such as, the burning of the Burrow, which was to suppose to have a very significant part in the next book. So, Im curious to see how they will fix that for the next movie.

The climax of the movie wasnt dargged out. They simplified it, but in a good way. Throughout the film, Malfoy is in a depressed state, and at the end of the movie did a pretty good job with his part.

There more of a shift between charaters. They focus on multiple people are how they are feeling, rather than revolving everything around Harry.

Overall, it was a good film. With a few minor mistakes, they kept to the book really well. The settings and the special affects were better than I imagined. It is definitely a must see.
