Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)

As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows. (IMDb)

A finally tempered pace produces superb results: The middle act with the main three in the forest is by far the most mature of the series, with its slow-burning character tension and nuanced feelings of frustration and hopelessness in a gorgeous natural setting. Aside from even more fresh material (see the handheld-shot chase scene, fantastic animation sequence) is great action (see the Ministry break-in) and a more-compelling-than-ever wizarding world, with its chilling new Nazi-like regime.

8.1/10
