Going in, everyone knew that Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 would be the longest prologue in film history. Most of the really important action takes place in the war that consumes most of the second half of the book. Fortunately, Writer Steve Kloves and director David Yates understand that there’s a more subtle war going on in the first half of the book – a war of emotions and, particularly, fears. While we get a fair bit of action in Deathly Hallows Pt. 1, what is most important is that we get to watch Harry, Hermione and Ron face their fears and forge their resolve.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 will not be released in 3-D, according to a press release from Warner Brothers.
