Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction--the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart. Harry's only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him.
It's not everyday a movie series comes along that mixes magic, action, friendship, and ... Quidditch. The Harry Potter movies do all that and more, delighting fans of J.K. Rowling's books while also entertaining those new to the Potterverse. Like the books, the movies do get darker and more intense as the series progresses, so make sure your little Harry, Ron, and Hermione fans are ready for each new chapter before moving on.
This movie is definitely kind of a weird cliff hanger, but it does make you want to see the next part. I don't quite understand why they put it into two parts even though it would take 3 hours to watch the movie. I think that if you want to see this, read the book before you watch it, if not, read the whole series and then you will REALLY understand it.
This was a great movie full of action and suspense. It was disappointing because it ended right where Voldemort was at the peak of his power, and people (especially those who didn't read the books) would have been wondering what would happen to Harry and his friends if Voldemort was unstoppable.

away several the staples productions past! The sports & train rides or car silly sketches open these film it's all quite stripped! Very least no way this is not part of a fare well be said! An it includes a death itself! Quite tense the mix anger & sadness...
You should really read the books first, it will let you imagine things on you own! I really liked this movie it was one of the better ones in the series, with a great plot (duh), decent special effects and really good acting. Seemed like some of the important parts were missing but it's kinda hard to fit everything in.
These are ok. I was hard on them at first because of the corny computer animation and what I thought were bad decisions on what to put in (and I still feel that way). Not to mention that its hard to find good actors in the 10 and 11 range.
But the movies get better and better and all the way to being pretty good. To the point where I now look forward to watching the last of them. Well, not really looking forward to the last of them, it was too sad a book for me to really want to see the movie.
If I can say one thing it’s that you should read the books first. The real magic is in those books, I think that you’ll miss out on a lot if you do it the other way round.
And neither of the actors playing Dumbledoor got it right. I’m not sure if a human could, but neither one of them even got close.
