All good things come to an end. That was everyone’s settlements when Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows was released in it’s book form back in 2007. By then, everyone that read the book or read wikipedia (you know some of you do) knew how everything turned out and after 8 movies, the people that only followed the movies will know who have won. I’ll make sure to keep this review spoiler free for the people that haven’t seen it but I can’t make promises.
If you don’t know by now, Deathly Hollows Part 2 starts off right after the 1st part, Voldemort has the Elder Wand and has set his sight on killing Harry so he can take over the world. Harry and his friends are still searching for the remaining Horcruxes, knowing that when they are destroyed, The Dark Lord will be weak enough to kill. The battle is set and only one of them will make it out alive at the end.
The movies have begun to become very dark starting with The Goblet of Fire and this one is no different. Don’t worry, there are some light moments in the movie as well. I mean, yeah, there’s a war going on but that doesn’t mean it’s all doom and gloom. David Yates knows how to mix the drama and the lighter moments in the films he directed for the series before hand. One the higher points of those movies.
The set pieces of the movie is grand, even if things were falling apart and exploding. Exploding building stuff is awesome. The places you seen in the other movies make a reappearance so if you don’t like how the places look then, you won’t like them now and vice versa. It is a continuation of the first part so new places weren’t really going to happen except for a certain person’s vault. Same goes for new characters, don’t expect them.
Speaking of story, for the people that only followed the movies, everything gets wrapped up the way you expect it to. People that read the book, they did some minor changes to fit the 2 hour film, as expected, and you know any thing you might want to see is going to show up in the MEGA SUPER EDITION of the movie series, so don’t fret. Acting as well is supremo with everyone bringing there A game to the film, even the minor parts. You stuck with them for this long and like the sets, if you don’t like them, won’t ever will.
For anyone that has follow the plot already, you won’t have a problem with it as with the lines and scenes as well. Everything is right on cue and edit nicely. Honestly, Part two, even if it is part of a whole film, is the best one out of all of them and has become one of my personal favorites out of all of them. It’s as simple as this, if you have followed all the films and/or read the books, you won’t have a problem with this film and is a must see. If you detest Harry Potter like how I fucking hate Twilight, don’t go see it; it’s as simple as that. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 gets a five out of five.
“The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.”
Is the 3D worth it? Yes the 3D is worth it. Warner Bros. learned their lesson with Clash of the Titans. Do you need to see it in 3D? Not really but most of the stuff that does happen is pretty cool.
