Without a hint of a link to the weird and wonderful double glazing world, here’s what I thought of the new Harry Potter film!

Well produced film, but lacked any serious action.

I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan in the world, but my girlfriend is, and according to her they missed a few important things out of the book. I wouldn’t know, I haven’t read any of the books.

For someone who isn’t a mega fan, I want to see something which blows my socks off. For moments during the film it threatened to do so. It built up Voldemort’s part with his quest to ready himself for the final battle which will be shown in the last film. It also focused heavily on Harry, Ron and Hermione and their struggle to find safety while on the run and trying to find a way to defeat Voldemort.

It didn’t blow me away. But it didn’t bore me either. It was a well scripted film, well acted and finely produced. But it wasn’t action packed. And for someone who isn’t a massive fan, that’s what it needed. For those who have read the books and is a fan, then it was a great film as they can appreciate more what they are seeing. But it wasn’t wasted on me.

The best way to judge this film is to see the next one. This is only one half of a two-part series based on the final book. I think you have to see both to be able to make a proper judgement. All in all I’ll give 7/10.
