The longest Harry Potter novel is made into the second shortest film, and director David Yates makes it feel so fluid and normal. New to the Harry Potter universe, screenwriter Michael Goldenberg handles the task of condensing the lengthy novel into an entertaining film. With great action and great acting from both main and supporting cast members, this is yet another fun and exciting movie to watch. It is similar to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in the sense that the villainous Voldemort is mostly discussed and referred to rather than seen until the film's climax. This film also underutilizes some great actors in roles that could have been expanded more. This film has a darker tone to it, and the darker cinematography eludes to this fact masterfully. The film seems dreary and like there is an impending doom lurking over the protagonists. This film is a tad slower than the other installments, but it does a good job of building up it's characters in the slower moments through dialogue or simple scenes. This film is not the best one in the series, but it is still a very solid entry and keeps the story progressing. This is probably one of the more infuriating film for fans of the novel as it can't get deeper into the details of certain plot elements like the book does, but that is common for book-to-movie adaptations. Overall, I give this film a 7/10.
