I was so eager to see this movie, I can't tell you. But I watched it and was- bewildered. There was no flow, it was like ( and really this is what they did) they took the most interesting parts and just mashed them together. There was no explaining on anything you were just supposed to know. They relied too heavily on views having read the books so they could understand, but I don't see how any reader could liked his. This is not well done, half the most entertain things are left out. And the acting, come on, I know Daniel Radcliffe is just a kid, but come on no emotion no nothing it looked more like he was just reading a book. Another thing, one of my favourite things in this series is the friendship between Harry Ron and Hermione, you see nothing of that. sure there's the "touching" reunion between Harry and Ron, but nothing more. Hardly any interaction between the three of them. Oh yes and the supposed romance between Hermione and Ron, well in this movie, I don't like Ron. Ralph Fiennes as Voldamort (SP?) was good, but what was up with the "because I am a kind lord' or whatever crap. Kind lord, him? come on even the murdering psycho knows he's not "kind". this was a huge disappointment. the cast was dreadful, the directing was terrible. I know they couldn't put everything into it, and I'm honestly glad that they didn't put SPEW into it. They should have split the movie into two parts. it was the only way they could have given justice to a fabulous book, rather than slaughter it, into unrecognizable heap of garbage. the only thing I can honestly say I liked about this movie was....... hang on it's coming to me..... nope, nothing, I was looking forward to Order of the Phoenix but after this catastrophe and waste of money I'm seriously considering just skipping it altogether. save your money read the book and marvel at the skill of JKR.
