Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that the second part of the final Harry Potter film starts as a "heist movie".
The actor made the comment while discussing the differences between the two instalments of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I (2010) with Empire magazine.
On the first half of the final adventure, Radcliffe said: "The first one is a weird road movie kind of thing."
"Compared to the second part it's slower paced, but that's only relative. It's more of an exploration of the relationship between the characters. You see those friendships tested for the first time."
He continued: "The second one is this non-stop rollercoaster of battles and heists. It starts off as this heist movie and turns into this all-out war."
The point at which the two movies will be split was recently confirmed. Deathly Hallows: Part One ‘will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder Wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows that allow the bearer to conquer death’.
That means that about two thirds of the door-step tome will be in the first instalment of the film.
Part two will therefore be based on the remaining 12 chapters of the novel, which will wrap up the whole saga.
Despite the split of the two films being revealed, the cliff-hangers have been a closely guarded secret.
Part one will be released in November, with the second following in July 2011.
