I went to see the film tonight have been waiting with great expectations but i,m afraid to say it was a big dissapointment. What was advertised as the best yet failed to live up to it. I Read the book and the film does not live up to it, if im not mistaken there is suppose to be a big fight at the end when Dumbaldore gets killed but it all happened in a whimper....Nothing not a wand raised. I sat for over 2 hours waiting for something to happen yet nothing very disappointing.

You sound like my OH. lol.
Personally I enjoyed it - after a slow start. I'd read the book so I already knew this film was going to be one of the more boring ones for me as I struggled to keep interested through the book.
This film is more about beginning to explain where Voldemort actually came from, but yes, Dumbledores death was a tad of an anti-climax.
I'll certainly go back and watch it again though.

I'm rather dismayed at the comments here. Although the 6th book was, for me, the worst of the bunch, I was hoping that they'd be able to find enough substance from said book to put together a decent film. However, after reading these posts I'm even contemplating not going to see this film, and just wait for the DVD instead :(

Has anybody got a positive views to make me change my mind :roll:?

Nooooooooooooo, go to the piccies to watch it.
I admit I did find it very different from the others but it's still Harry Potter - c'mon!
I am actually very tempted to go watch it again.
The film is still true to the book as far as I remember. Dumbledores death was a tad fiffy but even so..................

Go Watch it! DVD is not the same as the big screen.

Myself and my OH saw this yesterday. We both enjoyed it, the story and acting were as good as ever, but it was very dull in terms of action. It all happens in the last 30 mins.
It felt like it was leading up to something, I think for the next film.
Still worth watching, any film is good to see at the cinema, but it was defiantly not as good as some of the previous instalments.

I really enjoyed the film. Can't wait to the last 2. Even though this one was dull but it gave more of an indepth story of Valdermore's past. Roll on 2010.

I went yesterday and like most of you was disappointed.
There was only 3 main events that happened in the whole 2 hours.
I have to say its been the only Harry Potter film thats made me yawn and nearly sleep. Very disappointing..2/10
Im just glad i went on a tuesday when its only 3.50 rather than paying 7.10 to see it.

Have to agree I'm afraid :( Best book - worst film - not impressed :( Excited for months as well, the saddo that I am. Even my nine year old thought the same. Hopefully the next one will be better !!

Helena Bonham Carter and newcomer Dave Legeno as the werewolf were fantastic !!

What a load of tosh - I'm so disappointed :(. Like the book I found it to be the most tedious of the HP films to date, having very little substance with only a few effects to bolster the lack of anything else.

At one point I did hear someone have a wee snore in the audience - can't blame them really! Mind you someone sobbing at the death of Dumbledore actually bought a smile to my face - mad!
