Daniel Radcliffe Says Final Part of Harry Potter 7 ‘Like A War Film’Published on November 27, 2010 by Martyn Conterio ·
There’s been a fair few comments surrounding Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and its perceived lack of direction and pace in terms of plot. Other criticism is there wasn’t enough set-pieces and most of the movie was spent inside a tent in various locales across the UK.
But was David Yates cleverly building up the calm before the storm? Daniel Radcliffe definitely thinks so. As fans we can expect distinct styles for Parts 1 and 2: drama for the first, and for the sweet pay-off: high action. The man who pretends he’s Potter said this to press agency Reuters:
“The last movie is going to be really, really fast-paced and a load of action in it, and it is like a war film. If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film.”You can read our review of the film here. I enjoyed its slow burn approach and even though the much criticised dance scene was splendid too. So there. Deathly Hallows Part 1 review. Earlier in the week we got the first official still from Part 2 here.
Up next for Mr. Radcliffe is Hammer’s The Woman in Black and in 2012 he’ll be setting off for the western front when he stars in a brand new adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic war novel All Quiet On The Western Front.
Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 is released 16th July, 2011.
