Early Reviews for "Deathly Hallows: Part 1"
November 13, 2010, 11:29 PM
Some reviews have already come out for "Deathly Hallows: Part 1," and many comment on the merits of splitting the film into two parts. All of them have varying degrees of spoilers in them.
Total Film gave the movie 3 out of 5 stars.
Reuters UK review.
The Telegraph gave the movie 4 out 5 stars.
The Guardian gave the movie 2 out of 5 stars.
For a collection of short snippets from reviews that contain spoiler free assessments of the movie you can go here to Metro.
Reviews for these films, while important to some, are not necessarily pertinent to the fans. Being a writer myself, I understand the reviewers ability to remove emotional ties to the series and write a complete review, but it seems as though some of the reviewers were not just “non-fans” but “haters” of the series, which also gives a bias that makes them hard to swallow. We all know that this may not end up being our favorite film of the series, but it is most definitely something we’re looking forward to and is very important in the storyline that is leading us to the end of this franchise.
Totally agree with Liderc about the reveiws!! Only a 3 out of 5? come on it must be 5 out of 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That Total film review seems totally from a “haters” perspective!!
i never trust reviews from Critics, 9 times out of 10 they are wrong
I can’t believe the last one… did someone from the movies or j.k. rowling personally offend him??? ugh… 5 DAYS!
The last review was Harsh and totally untrue! Half-Alive? Hmph, Maybe he better recheck how many fans were at the premeir and How many people go see the movie. I wonder if the Idiot is a dementor because that review seriously depressed me.
Well, i dont want to see the ones with the spoilers, but from what im reading from metro, the rating arent so great… its annoying, they seem very biased, which in this case is not good…….
Personally, i doubt this film will disappoint.. Jk Rowling loves it and she wouldnt let it be released if she didnt think it was good…
I guess we will just have to wait and see…
The Daily Mail’s Christopher Tookey feels that some fans will be disappointed that Part One is essentially the first half of a treasure hunt and they’ll have to wait for the climax next July….
OH NO DON’T SAY THAT!
If I wasn’t disappointed with Half Blood Prince… im sure ill really like this one
when i read these reviews, it makes me wonder if the reviewer had bothered seeing the previous films? i cannot expect them to read the books, but sometimes, it’s like they don’t have a clue as to what the film is supposed to represent. regardless, i do enough research on my own, will see this movie regardless.
That last one is awful. Saying the movie didn’t have any closure (there is still a 2nd part) and saying it lacked warmth (does he even know what the book is about?)…it just felt rude and and uneducated. Like he has a bitter past with HP that he doesn’t want anyone to know about. haha Either way, I’m still super excited! Way to not have done an effective job in turning me away! ;)
Oh, pish posh. They always give the films a low review and the films always amaze the fans. Sometimes I think critics just like to be contrary because it makes them feel smart. They’d rather do that than admit that a “children’s” story swept them up in the moment, which is what a film should do.
“The Times’ Kate Muir was also on the fence with her judgement, rating Deathly Hallows part one a three out of five, saying that the 146-minute film with be a ‘nightmarish place’ for five-year-olds.”
Hmmm….not even the first book was aimed at 5-year-olds, and the movie is rated PG-13, so this assessment is absurd, and shows the typical ignorance of the news media at-large.
I always make up my own mind, and most reviewers seem to hold HP to higher standards due to its popularity (sour grapes, methinks.) Thus, HP can never win a game that is stacked against it.
Ah well, 5 days and I can make up my own mind. Everything I’ve seen so far says “best yet.”
most of these reviews just well suck. i dont care what these people have to say. all i know is that im going to love it no matter what
guys rotten tomatoes has so far 15 reviews, the film for now is 80% fresh, which is not bad . here’s the link http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/harry_potter_and_the_deathly_hallows_part_i/
im extremely annoyed by total film and guardian reviews…. come on, seriously? biased and sarcastic enough? 2 out of 5 stars! these reviewers obviously are harry potter haters. i’ve read many others reviews online about the screening of the movie months back, and the reviews stated it was the best harry potter film yet~and that was without the special effects! screw these total film guardian reviewers, their close minded and rude comments prove how wrong some movie reviews really are! i think we’ll all just have to wait until friday at 12:01 to prove these idiots wrong ;)
