Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I [Blu-ray] [Canadian; French]
Region 1 USA/CA (
Instead of distilling J.K. Rowling's behemoth bestseller into a single film, director David Yates and his cast and crew have divided the final book in the Harry Potter series into a pair of movies. In this first installment in the two-part epic, Harry's final adventure begins. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART I marks the third Potter film for Yates, who also helmed HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX and HARRY POTTER AND THE HALFBLOOD PRINCE.
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "There is suspense and action in this film, but there is also lots of room for emotion..."
"Rupert Grint has grown up to be a skillful actor who knows the value of a slow burn..."
Wall Street Journal
"One of the pleasures of the HARRY POTTER series is watching these three actors grow up from film to film along with the characters. That experience gives the trio of performers a real-world camaraderie to call on..."
Los Angeles Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] handsome and sometimes harrowing film..."
"Radcliffe and Watson share a sweet dance. And Grint, funny and touching, steals the show as jealous Ron."
"[T]he most cinematically rewarding chapter yet....[PART 1] bravely faces the future, slipping with expert ease among the thrilling mass of complications that Rowling throws fans in the final sprint, then guiding the faithful to the fate that awaits everyone in this world, the moment called The End." -- Grade: A-
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film continues POTTER's reputation as a visual feast, especially when Voldemort calls his minions (and snake) to the table."
"[The movie] belongs solidly to Mr. Radcliffe, Mr. Grint and Ms. Watson, who have grown into nimble actors, capable of nuances of feeling that would do their elders proud."
New York Times
"[T]his film feels devoted above all to reproducing the novel onscreen as closely as possible....The film's most engaging sustained interlude involves the kids' risky visit to the Ministry of Magic..."
3 stars out of 4 -- "[F]ull of the enchantment, emotion and incident for which the Potter series has become so fanatically cherished."
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he action sequences are orchestrated by director David Yates with brio and inventive effects....[The] tension's pumped up sky-high."
3 stars out of 4 -- "HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS -- PART 1 is easily the best movie in the series, if only because it's the one movie with the most narrative thrust."
3 stars out of 5 -- "Watson, as ever, is the star -- breezy and effortless and never over-rehearsed.
"Liberated from Hogwarts, the film also travels to the awesome limestone pavement of Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales. There is magic in such locations..."
