Surely a controversial opinion; Harry Potter và the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is the best film in the series. Yes, even better than Prisoner of Azkaban. Given that the final book was split inlớn two films, the first part has more time to breathe và is able khổng lồ translate more of the book onlớn the big screen. On all accounts, slowing things down và splitting the finale into two parts truly worked in favor of the series. And of course, who could forget that animated scene telling the story of the Deathly Hallows.

Most notably, Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is a much deeper dive sầu into these familiar characters và their relationships with one another. Given that much of the film is spent with Harry, Hermione, and Ron camping out or planning a new adventure together, moviegoers are able khổng lồ see how cthua they really are. In the other films, the relationship between the trio (while still incredible) felt a bit superficial because the focus given to lớn them was not nearly as detailed as the books, and they were often too distracted khổng lồ just bond. During this film, we can actively see the toll that this journey is taking on them, individually, and in their relationships with each other. We see how svào their love for each other is, but we also see their relationships tested.

There had been cracks in the trio’s friendship before, like when Ron gets angry with Harry in Goblet of Fire, with Ron accusing Harry of not telling hyên about his entry inkhổng lồ the Triwizard tournament. But, could anyone really watch that và be on Ron’s side? No, not really… at least not in the film, and that’s something that just couldn’t translate with such little time lớn adapt an enormous story. In Deathly Hallows, when Ron leaves in a rage after his fight with Harry over the radio and listening lớn make sure none of his family members had been murdered by the Death Eaters, his reaction is far more understandable, và the viewers are far more sympathetic to his plight.

Because the focus was so entirely on Harry & trying khổng lồ develop such a complex plot in the other films, other characters were rarely allowed real, emotional moments. That’s not the case in this film. It’s most noticeable with the trio, but even the others have sầu their moments. There’s real grief from the Weasley family after George’s ear is cursed off, & just in general with their world crumbling around them. Harry finally is allowed time to lớn sit with all of his losses, & even though it doesn’t play a major part in the film, it certainly shows Harry in a different light. The easiest emotion khổng lồ see from Harry in the films was always anger, but there’s a sadness surrounding hlặng in Deathly Hallows Part 1 that wouldn’t have sầu been possible to show if the film was rushing khổng lồ wrap everything up in two and a half hours.

The additional scenes that weren’t in the books add to lớn this, too. For instance, showing Hermione wiping herself from her Muggle parents’ memories so they wouldn’t be in danger is glossed over with a quick mention in the books, but is such a vital display of the cost of the upcoming war in the film. And, after Ron leaves, Harry và Hermione’s dance scene is such a sweet moment of friendship between the two, giving them a small but much-needed break from the constant misery & despair of their situation. It’s so simple, but such a beautiful touch khổng lồ give the characters (và viewers) an emotional break và improves the movie tenfold. It all comes together khổng lồ capture the dark tone & utter seriousness of what’s going on in their world và what a major threat they’re facing. Sure, the other films show Voldemort lớn be a dangerous foe, but Deathly Hallows: Part 1 details how Voldemort is everywhere và on the brink of success. He’s sucked all of the hope out of the wizarding world, which contributes lớn how much pressure is on the trio to save sầu the day.

What really brings Harry Potter và the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 to lớn the top of the menu is that, for the first time in the films, everything and everyone is allowed to slow down a bit. The plot moves forward at an enjoyable pace without overtaking every other aspect of the film or overshadowing the characters & the beautiful relationships from the books. Instead of briskly darting to the end, the focus of this film is on interpersonal relationships. It allows time for things like Bill (Dohmnall Gleeson) and Fleur’s (Clémence Poésy) wedding và makes the risk of death even more frightening và heartbreaking to consider as their journey progresses. The characters, particularly the trio, are allowed to be emotional, while still being heroic. They’re allowed to lớn make mistakes, take risks, và come cthảm bại khổng lồ losing everything (và really feel that near-death experience). And, splitting the book into lớn two films allowed for the viewers to become even more invested in the story và the characters, making the kết thúc of the story in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 all the more powerful and impactful.

The other Harry Potter films are great, but Deathly Hallows: Part 1 benefits incredibly from the book being split inlớn two films, with the final battle and kết thúc of Harry Potter’s story saved for the next movie. Little moments và well-developed main characters/relationships made the books a success, & that’s something that lacks too much in some of the films. While the plot with Voldemort was interesting, it wasn’t the main allure of the story. But, it became the focal point of the films from the start. The allure of the books was the wizarding world at large, & learning more about this mystical universe, the characters that inhabited it, và what was possible. With Deathly Hallows: Part 1, that is finally seen on-screen, particularly with the investigation inkhổng lồ Dumbledore’s past & the history of the world as the trio searched for items that could’ve sầu been potential Horcruxes.

Plus, with more time khổng lồ explore, viewers are able lớn see much of the book on-screen. Scenes, characters, & interactions don’t have sầu khổng lồ be completely changed khổng lồ shorten & simplify the plot. It feels lượt thích a love letter khổng lồ the material that is being adapted, which is astounding considering the primary reason for the powers that be to split a book inkhổng lồ two films is likely the money.
