The Beginnging Of The End For Harry Potter

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 is the first part in the epic two-part conclusion to one of the greatest film franchises of all time, as well as a large part of my childhood.
I still remember my dad taking me to see The Sorcerer's Stone a decade ago.
The whole crew is back as the story continues from #6 with Harry in search of horcruxes to defeat Lord Voldomort.
I won’t get into plot and spoil anything for anyone hopefully.
Deathly Hallows comes off as the darkest Harry Potter yet.
But at the same time, it's also one of the funniest. Director David Yates (whom I still disapprove of) did a great job of balancing the serious with the humorous.
This first part is definitely not the best installment of Harry Potter.
Much like Half-Blood Prince (aside from one major plot event at the ending), Deathly Hallows is a lead in to this second-part finale, which will premire in July 2011.
The finale promises to be epic on all fronts as the crew really kicks things into high gear leading up to the epic conclusion of hero vs. anti-hero.
My main gripe with part one is that it felt like nothing happened, as I said it is a lead in, I'm grateful they split this into two parts, but nothing really happens and scenes are unnecessarily drawn out.
I did actually read the book so I knew what to expect and knew it wouldn't change pace for a while.
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 is a good film and must see for any fan of the series.
But I left the theater thinking one thing and one thing only....IS IT JULY YET?!?!?!?!? ***1/2
