Last Sunday at about 9:55 PM I couldn’t wait any longer to watch the final film of the Harry Potter series… Here is my review:
There were several parts of the Deathly Hallows (Part 2) film that enhanced J. K. Rowlings depiction of this turmoil ridden world. When Voldemort’s forces finally come to destroy Hogwart’s, the imagery created by the magical forcefield surrounding the school was incredible. This film was action packed, one event right after another with very little characterization. If you are not familiar with the other 7 films (or books) it might be a bit hard to follow. Yet, for avid Harry Potter fans they should be able to keep up quite readily. I had high expectations for this film and in some ways it was disappointing. At several points in the beginning of the film Harry’s character fell flat. Perhaps being the Savior-figure of the film was too much for Daniel Radcliff. Some of the fight scenes were also disappointing especially between Harry & Voldemort. I was expecting to see more spells and less man-handling. One character I felt executed his role quite well was Neville Longbottom.
I am sad to see this magical saga come to an end. However, all good things must. If you haven’t dove into reading J.K. Rowlings books, I would suggest you do so they are far better than the films. Now I will leave you with a glance at the past.
Can you believe it started a decade ago?
