It seemed as if I had been transported into another realm as I entered the chaotic foyer of VUE Cinema last night. Hundreds of Harry Potter’s, Ron Weasley’s and Hermione Granger’s stood before me (I could have sworn I spied a Dobby too).
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was finally released last evening with many cinema’s across the UK showing ‘double bills’ providing a refresher of the first half of The Deathly Hallows before sitting to watch the last instalment in the series. Warner Brother’s did not fail us. Readers of the series have spent so long visualising the end it has been question to what extent the makers could do it justice, but it is evident that Warner Brother’s studio worked closely with JK Rowling, and her intentions and motifs within the book to recreate the magic of imagination on the big screen.
At risk of spoiling the film for those who have not yet seen it I wont say too much about the content, however I will say this, what can only be described as two of the best moments in the history of Harry Potter arise during this film. Firstly, Molly Weasley screaming ‘NOT MY DAUGHTER YOU BITCH’ during a duel with Bellatrix Lestrange has to be one of my upmost, favourite moments, that along with the awkward hug Voldermort gives Draco as he steps towards him and his army of Death Eaters. Both moments raising laughter and cheering from the audience.
The film is well worth a watch and, rest assured, I shall be returning to the cinema to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 again.
