Well, David Yates has once again disappointed me. Director of the previous 3 Harry Potter movies (Order of the Phoenix, The Half-Blood Prince, and the Deathly Hallows Part 1) as well as this final chapter, Yates has left me unsatisfied every time. It's not that his work on the Potter films have been especially bad (with the exception being Deathly Hallows Part 1), but they've felt weak when compared to the first four films. So while I like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, it's so disappointing when one considers that this was a finale that the franchise has been building up to for over 10 years. I can only imagine how disappointed I would've been had I not blown through the series in a matter of weeks.
In this final chapter, Harry and his friends must destroy the …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. After seven previous movies reaching back an entire decade the Harry Potter series has reached a solid and satisfying end. It was such a good idea to split the last book into to movies. If you are a big fan of the books as I am, you could arguably say that all the movies could have been made into two parts. As good as that might have been, that would have been far to many movies. The final book however has so much in it that one movie could not have done it proper justice. Before going to see the movie I would pop Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in your DVD player, because if you are not up to speed on what is happening you will be completely lost. I saw the first part …

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2" closes the adventure of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) as he now all set to battle against Voldemort- and finish it. Harry, as he deals with the present's unfinished business, he will get to know more of his past and finally sets his future.
Now, it happened. Harry Potter closes his world, the world we insanely got to know and addicted on. I admit, I am not an avid fan of this film series, I only saw the first 5 movies and got a chance of watching the last one( the second part of the two-part finale). And I am not actually sure if I understand the whole thing. And these are exactly the reasons why I should consider this film series as CLASSIC. Not everyone surely know the whole story, but absolutely, everyone heard and have thoughts of …

Finally after several films from the franchise it all ends. Harry, Hermione and Ron’s friendship still intact. Lord Voldemort has been defeated ala Darth vs. Luke style. Ever notice the color from their wands during the fight? Red from Harry and green from Voldemort). There were several twists involved including the mother of Harry and Severus Snape’s adoration and real character. Dumbledore returns for the last time in Harry’s head offering a few wisdom. Overall, it was a good continuation of Deathly Hallows Part 1, darker since more character’s died during battle. But for every battle, rebuilding is the most important thing. In the end, they became parents and have their children going to the school they went to. The only minute detail I find kind of lacking was the actual …

After a long journey (figuratively and literally) Harry Potter finally reaches its conclusion. I was worried about splitting the last film into two parts, but after watching Pt. 1 and Pt. 2, I have no doubt this was the correct thing to do. Unless you made the film 4+ hours long, you couldn't have made a viable movie that would have done the story justice. Whereas Pt. 1 focused on the buildup - crafting the story and emotions - Pt. 2 is all about the payoff - epic battles, huge revelations, sad farewells and facing your destiny head on.
I don't know how many people realize how lucky they are this series succeeded. Not only in the casting of the main trio but also in the casting of adults, the choice of directors, the excellent adaptation of J. K. Rowling work by Steve Kloves - if even …
