Review
HARRY POTTER AND THE 
DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1 is scary and a bit funny like the other Harry Potter films and it has a very involved story-line and continued where the last one left off. Each actor is showing at their best performance and so does the visual effects. I'm impressed with the cliffhanger ending that involves Voldemort as well as the animation sequence of the Deathly Hallows story, but I never knew that DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1 could be the next EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. 

For anyone who seen the movie, try HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 (click here) which is the last instalment of the film series.

Star rating:
(4/5) Good Movie
