Movie Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 2

Posted: Updated:

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 2 is a very satisfying climax to the Harry Potter saga.

The acting is good, the filmmaking and special effects are superb, the actions scenes aren't overdone, and Harry's final victory over his arch nemesis is both hard won and well deserved.
A review of this final Harry Potter film probably isn't necessary.
What Potter fan wouldn't go to see the end of the young wizard's battle against the forces of evil?
And how would anyone who's never read at least one of J.K. Rowling's books or never seen any of the movies...how would that person ever figure out what's going on?

Anyway, I can tell Potter fans this: you will not be disappointed by the final chapter.

It's kind of amazing to think that we've watched three child actors grow into adults during the course of the 8 Harry Potter films over ten years.
And it's been a real treat to see so many fine English actors in the adult roles: Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, John Hurt to name just a few.
 
The final movie follows Harry, Hermione, and Ron as they track down and destroy the final horcruxes, those mysterious objects that hold parts of Voldemort's soul.

The film does a great job of balancing story elements, magic, action, and emotion, all building to an exciting final confrontation with Voldemort.
 
I've enjoyed most of the Potter films. but I'd rate this the best of all of them.
