Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The first half of the Harry Patter finale has finally come to the big screen.

Fans began lining up to see the midnight showings of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" as early as yesterday morning.

Many critics say "Deathly Hallows" is the best of the Harry Potter films so far. Several fans who saw the midnight movie shared their opinions with 3TV.

Many of the weekend showings are already sold out. The movie, which once again stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley),  is expected to be a record-breaker.
