Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 2

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part 2 directed by David Yates stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter. The final movie in Rowling's long-running series drew hordes of people to the early morning showing I attended. With cape and wand in hand I nervously waited through the plethora of trailers to finally feast my eyes on the last film. If you have read the Potter books you of course will nit pick at parts being changed and removed throughout the series of films. While s

ome of the major scenes from the book get a bit tweaked to suit a broader audience, I was very satisfied with the ending film.


Plot:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts. In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort. It all ends here.


As another installment of the epic saga of good vs. evil fighting to control the wizarding world, Harry once again has the weight of the world resting on his shoulders. Now on the cusp of adulthood he sets out once again with his two best friends to find the final horcruxes and remove the evil that has been plaguing the wizarding world thus far. It's such an action packed ride you can't help getting caught up in the film as if a giant hand just reaches out of the screen and grabs a hold of you! Part 2 packs an emotional punch as well with numerous touching scenes throughout, add to that a bit of graphic violence and you'll surely fear for our favorite Brits. This emotional roller coaster will leave audiences enjoying the final ride of the series. It comes close to being the best movie the franchise has cranked out to date in my opinion. Any other ending (or lack there of) would have left the book fans and audiences shaking there muggle heads in disgust.


While the action may have been the center of Part 2, the more quiet dialog between characters held me just as strongly. All the actors came ready to do the work, at this point the roles must be second nature to them. Truly a great movie and while it may have gotten a few things wrong compared to the books, overall it has delivered a great ending. If you have yet to watch any of the films or read the books please do not start with the last movie and work your way back! lol. It's an adventure for any age and one that Ithroughly have enjoyed. Thanks Potter for the fond memories. *rides off into the sunset*

  4. I agree with the 4 sheep rating :)

    I liked the movie a lot though there were a lot of changes to the plot from the book itself...

    I don't recommend the movie to anyone who's not familiar with the franchise as a whole... it expects you to already know what's going on and is real unapologetic about it. Definitely a finale geared directly at fans.

  5. Yes exactly. If you don't know the series then sit this one out. So glad you liked it too! :)

  6. I just saw this the other day. I liked the movie, but I don't know I definitely wouldn't say it was the best one in the series. The pauses in the war just seemed like I don't know random time outs to me, the pacing just seemed off. And they had to add the ending that was in the book which was my least favorite part of the book series itself. I would have like the book series and the movies a lot better without the epilogue scene. I just kind of felt let down with this movie even though I wouldn't call it bad movie, I liked the movie I was just expecting more. Interesting to see what someone else thought of it.

  8. @Jenn thanks, and I totally understand what you're saying. :)

    @Nikiya my Canadian Princess- closer to the book, especially the ending with Voldomort. More at the train station 16 years later and a LOT more about Dumbledors brother. What did you think of the movie? I know how much you liked the books. ;)

  9. Just watched this for the first time, not knowing what to expect. I've been disappointed by the past couple of movies, especially Part One, which seemed more filler than substance.

    This grand finale however, was truly GRAND! It brought back everything that had captivated me at the beginning of the series. What a ride!
