I was lucky enough last night to get into a sneak preview of the seventh Harry Potter movie, "The Deathly Hallows". It will be released into theaters this coming Friday. Many thanks to Mikey V for bringing me along with him.
This movie was, by far, the best Harry Potter movie to date. Because it only covered half of the final Potter book the pace was slowed down enough to feel more like a movie and less like a confusing jumble of plot points and thrill rides.
Some bright points:
- Darker themes and more mature storyline.
- Great chemistry between the trio of Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
- Much improved house-elf animation (particularly the facial expressions of "Creature").
