Atom User Reviews for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
It's not a bad movie, but it is very much a transitional one.
This is a quest movie, with a lot of ground covered, and just as our heroes never stay long in one place or feel safe in their surroundings, neither does the audience.
For a studio so clearly willing to take risks with so many of its movies, this particular movie has a whiff of exploitation. Rowling wrote one epic funeral that Warner Bros. requires us to attend twice.
