Harry Potter Stars Talk To FILMCLUB
The charity's Young Ambassador covers the World Premiere
Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Bonnie Wright have spoken to FILMCLUB – the education charity and experts in film for young people about the latest instalment in the hit film series - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One, which is released in UK cinemas next week.
Ben Angus, who is a Young Ambassador for the charity, attended an exclusive preview screening of the film before interviewing the stars and the director David Yates at the World Premiere of the film, where he quizzed them about their favourite Harry Potter film scenes and what is in store in the final film in the franchise.
Daniel Radcliffe told the charity that the last film - out next year – is like “a road movie that turns into a heist movie that turns into a war film. The last film you will be flung head first at 200mph into a firestorm of action!”

As a huge fan of the Harry Potter films, I was very excited to be asked by FILMCLUB to attend the film premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I know my friends are really jealous, so I can’t wait to tell them that the film did not disappoint!
The story follows Harry and friends as they go on the run from the evil Voldemort and his followers. Voldemort is slowly but surely gaining power and more people are turning to the dark side, including the ministry of magic. The only way that Harry can try and defeat Voldemort, is to find Horcruxes as they are the secret to Voldemort’s immortality. However, as Harry is tracking down the Horcruxes, he uncovers the tale of the Deathly Hallows - objects that when put together, make up Death. To the horror of the three friends the Deathly Hallows could possibly give Voldemort the devastating power he seeks – and so the battle to defeat Voldemort REALLY begins…
All the hype surrounding the film is justified as Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is an absolutely fantastic film. It’s hard to find a fault. The story is gripping right the way through. You are constantly trying to figure out the twists and turns and the scary scenes really add to the excitement of the film – be warned though - they are perfectly placed to make you jump! The effects are absolutely jaw dropping, especially a broomstick chase at the start of the film which makes you forget to breathe because of how AMAZING it is. There are some slow moments as for the majority of the film, Hermione, Ron and Harry are in hiding in a forest in the middle of nowhere, however this just make the action sequences even more exciting because of the contrast in pace. I certainly won’t give away the ending of the film, but lets just say that although it is a bit clichéd, it does give a great place for the final instalment to follow on from and I certainly think it’s going to be an even darker time for Harry.
Overall I would say that compared to the other films in the series it is not only the best so far, but also the scariest – Bring on Part 2! Rating: 5/5
