Admittedly, I was daunted about the 2 hours and 36 minutes of the first HALF of the last of the Harry Potter movies. Even though I'm a huge Potter fan, I was afraid it was going to be like the last film -- long, and a little bit dull.
I was pleasantly surprised. The movie flowed by quickly, it seemed: it was intriguing, action-packed -- and incredibly dark. If you thought "The Half-Blood Prince" was dark, be prepared, fans. The new "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" is so much more intense, so much more foreboding, than the last in the series.
