The Talon 12
By Molly Dougherty
The frst movie
installment of the novel,
“Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows,” was
extremely entertaining—
that is, assuming you
have faithfully read
all of the Harry Potter
books and have entered
the theater hoping to see
an accurate depiction of
J.K. Rowling’s original
storyline.
Junior Alicia Green
is one Harry Potter
enthusiasts who was
pleased with the movie’s
adherence to the book’s
plot.
“The movie stuck to
the book really well, and
it set up the story for the
second movie. I thought
it was really good!” said
Green.
Sophomore Leigh
Rice is also a Harry
Potter junkie. She is
impressed with the way
the series continues to be
entertaining and retains
fans year after year.
“This movie really
shows how the actors
have grown, especially
Emma Watson,” said
Rice.
However, if you are
like me (you haven’t
read a Harry Potter book
since middle school
and only went to see it
because you were either
dragged along by friends
in Gryffndor costumes
or hoping to see Ron
shirtless), the movie may
have fallen short of the
hype.
The plot moved
slowly throughout most
of the movie, and the
exciting, magical vibe
most fans expect was
strangely absent from the
flm.
Senior Spirit Stevens
was disappointed after
seeing “The Deathly
Hallows.”
“I usually like the
Harry Potter movies,
but this one was pretty
terrible,” said Stevens. “I
don’t read the books, but
considering the lack of
action in this movie, they
probably should have
just made one movie for
the seventh book.”
And there you have it.
If you are a devout HP
supporter, you will most
likely be pleased with
the movie; if not, I’d
say your $8.50 might be
better spent at Taco Bell.
‘Deathly Hallows’ brilliant for
some, boring for others
