The new Harry Potter movie, "Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows, Part 2" has left me a little sad. This is the last movie and there woin't be any more Harry Potter. It's like watching the series finale of a TV series. If you follow that TV series for many years and when it ended forever. You feel sad. I was sad. I watch the Harry Potter series from day one. I watch the three kids grew up before our eyes. Yesterday, they were kids, now they have grown up and they must movie on. The final movie is the conclusion of a two parter, but the end of a series that define motion picture history. In Part 2, thge kids return to Hogwart to fend their school against Voltment and the final battle between the two is the climax, not only to the movie, but to the series. The film's running time is 2 hours and 10 minutes, the shortest movie of the series. I wish the movie could've been a little longer. I may be one of a few Reader Reviewers who review all eight Harry Potter movies. Put all eight Harry Potter movies together and you can call it a thesis. I love the series. it's a great series. It's better than any other series in motion picture history. I'm proud of the series. Harry Potter makes me smile. What a ride!
I've enjoyed all of the Harry Potter movies, including this one, but not "especially" this one. This final movie had the immense burden of wrapping up a long and complicated saga.
I won't give anything away here for those who have not seen it, but I was surprised as to how it all wrapped up. I must say that I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't more depth and complexity to this movie given that there were in the previous ones.
It had a lot of relevant material needed for the story to end, but I felt like it fizzled. "The one whose name should not be spoken" turned out some very Junior Varsity magic and showed little organization skills for an evil overlord. Harry showed some real grit and maturity. It was nice to see it, but don't wait to be wowed.
Very slow, almost boring, in the first part of the show. It picked up later, but still wasn't what I had thought it would be. I have seen all the movies in the series and am a big fan, but the last one is not the best of them.
I thought this movie was a very fitting end to the series. The first part was necessarily unsatisfying (given that it was the first of two parts), but this finale redeemed that frustration easily.
I haven't read any of the books past the first, so I don't know how true to the book the last two movies were, but the rabid fans I know were quite happy.
If you're interested I seeing this movie, you've likely seen the rest and maybe also read the books, so if you're into the series so far, there's not much that could dissuade you. Fortunately, this movie will provide a satisfying conclusion to the Harry Potter story.
