BRISBANE, Australia -- With all the caliber and heart-wrenching warmness of the
previous Harry Potter movies, the latest installment, Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows Part 1, does not disappoint. To describe the movie without
giving anything away, I have to say that I laughed, cowered in fear, cheered in
fights, cried for loss and welled up with joy for victory.
The movie began with many a heartbreak, with memory loss and death of loved
ones, the tears already forming. By the end of the movie, the tears were rolling
down my cheeks in utter heartbreak. Every discourse and emotion presented in
previous Harry Potter movies is accentuated in this one. Relationships form
between characters that leave you sighing in satisfaction.
The once not-yet-developed Harry, Ron and Hermione have now matured into young
adults who, if I must say, are pretty darn fine looking -- especially Emma
Watson (who plays Hermione) has turned into a beautiful young woman who
exuberated strength and courage in her character. Harry and Ron, as usual,
showed their strength in sacrificing their lives to defy Voldemort while also
showing their care for Hermione and protecting her, except this time, the movie
brings their characters to a whole other level.
The movie ends on a cliffhanger, leaving you unsatisfied and craving the release
of the second movie. I, for one, cannot wait!
