From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One (15)

Thursday 18 November 2010

Directed by David Yates

Holy Hogwarts, it’s Potty time again.

Given the hysteria at the premiere you could hear the producers rubbing their grubby hands and chorusing along to “Hark the Harry Potter franchise” as they coin in the Christmas cash.

Well, not if you haven’t fallen under the spell of JK Rowling‘s books.

The latest Harry Potter and The Deadly Hallows has been split into two films to maximise the marketing opportunities sometime next year.

For those who’ve resisted the temptation, it’ll not attract new acolytes.

Call me a heretic, but all I could see was an episodic road movie with our intrepid trio of Harry, Hermione and Ron making occasional stopovers to indulge in some personal problems while evading Voldemort’s Death-Eaters.

His minions have taken over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts and he is out to capture Harry alive.

The resultant witch-hunt has our heroes set out on a mission to discover Dumbledore’s clues, including an ancient sword.

Unlike previous films, everything appears to be designed to leap out from the screen, like the slithering snake and an incredible motorbike chase through a tunnel, But then you realise it’s missing the 3-D magic boasted by Avatar.

It seems that, despite the financial success of the first six films, the producers couldn’t magic up the money for more expensive effects – disappointing given its potential to involve viewers as participants in the picture.

Obviously the fans don’t need the story elaborated but they might be miffed because, despite the length, creatures have been cut out yet scenes that never appeared in the book are added in. …

There’s an amazing cast and countless characters because, apart from ageing a few years, they’re all familiar. I just wish they were confronted with something more challenging than the usual demonic retards. Then I think of the Con-Dem government.
