The movies all Harry Potter fans have been waiting for. With the books being so intensely gripping, we could only hope that the movies would do them justice. So far, so good, but now for the ultimate test, will the final Harry Potter movie surpass our expectations? Well they certainly surpassed mine.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, is not your normal Harry Potter movie. It immediately hops right into the action and there is minimal rest. Even the plot build up is intense! Of course there is a bit of information missing that was in the book, but that should be expected. The missing information isn’t incredibly crucial, and the movie still awesome with it missing. It also is still understandable and easy to follow for someone that hasn’t read the books, although, some parts may be annoyingly lacking info.
If one actor stood out from the rest in this movie, it would have to be Alan Rickman. Although the rest of the cast still does an excellent job bringing these beloved characters to life, Alan Rickman has taken by far the most complex character and portrayed absolutely perfectly.
The major things that set Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 apart from its predecessors are the battle scenes. While they aren’t anything like Saving Private Ryan, they’re pretty amazing for the Harry Potter genre. They’re intense, thrilling, and gripping, everything an action sequence needs.
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’ve grown attached to these characters. But with growing attached to something, you’ll experience all the emotion that comes with seeing what happens. You’ll experience joy, anger, fear, worry, and unfortunately sadness.
Obviously if you’re a Harry Potter fan you’re going to see this movie, but even if you aren’t, if you have a general idea of what’s going on, it’s still a very enjoyable movie. You’ll be thoroughly entertained by the storyline, the action scenes, the excellent acting, and of course the pretty colors.
If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series you’ll be happy with this as the ending movie. It was very, very well put together, and a joy to watch. It’s a shame that the series had to come to an end, but it did end with one hell of a bang.
