Irrelevant and mind numbing
almost completely leaves out the entire storyline which totally removes the magic from the books. maybe the creators wanted a light hearted instalment before the dramatic finale(s) but by removing such important plot points. many people who have not read the books found HPDH: P1 somewhat confusing due to the bad set-up created by this film. a near travesty although admittedly, the parts which are good really are done well.
