In this first half of the final installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) are on the run from Lord Voldemort and his henchmen. They must sever ties with all the people they love and go it alone.
Their quest is for the trio to track down various objects that will allow them to destroy Lord Voldemort’s secret to immortality. They seek a Horcrux containing a sliver of Voldemort’s soul, the sword of Gryffindor and a pendant that holds the key to the deathly hallows.
This is the darkest film within the Harry Potter films with superb action and great drama! Satisfying as this installment was, I cannot wait for the final movie later this summer.
