I’d like to thank the wonderful people at HMThinkLatino for giving me an opportunity to attend an early screening Tuesday night of the latest Harry Potter film. I was greatly entertained. Diehard Potter fans should not be disappointed with the first movie installment of the final chapter in the epic series. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, is very dark and visually stunning. The sound effects and cinematography kept my eyes and ears sharp throughout the film. The movie is mixed with speedy action scenes and slow storytelling sections that prepare viewers for the ultimate fight between Harry Potter and the evil Lord Voldemort. The three main characters, Harry, Ron, and Hermione, continue to grow-up in front of our eyes and lean on each other for survival. Even though I have not seen all of the Potter films, this movie is thrilling on its own. The audience prior to the start of the film was energized and some giggled with anticipation. I laughed out loud in some parts of the movie and found myself bracing for the unexpected in others. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give this next to last Harry Potter film a 7, but just because I may have missed some important connections in the series. The movie opens nationwide tomorrow and I strongly recommend checking it out, whether you’re a Harry Potter fanatic or not.
