This film tries to be so much more than it is and struggles to engage throughout. Being just the first half of the book the film has a slow pace and of course creates no climax. No one goes to see a film for the beggining so it shouldn't be a surprise that this film isn't so good and hopefully part 2 will be an improvement (it would struggle not to be). The fact that when reviewing this film you have to highlight that part 2 should be better is a sign that this film cannot be seen as a good standalone movie and i feel that when your charging people to see 2 parts to one film both parts should be as equally good and worth the money. Sadly i feel this film doesnt impress and infact highlights the crucial flaw in all harry potter films, the acting. As the title suggests this film is highly overrated but still does what it needs to set up part 2 unfortunately thats all it is a set up for a better film.
