Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Film Review)

Jul 17, 2011
deathly hallows harry potterThe highly anticipated final entry to the 'Harry Potter' franchise is here, and it's ending with wands, monsters, and pretty much a lot of explosive magic. 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' is a fulfilling and fitting conclusion to a franchise we all love. Growing up with this series—witnessing Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint unfold and mature—is an absolute treat, and to actually be part of their adventures onscreen while basically grow up with them is but a blast.

In volume dos of the ‘Deathly Hallows’ double feature, Harry, Hermonie, and Ron are left to find the remaining horcuxes that could defeat Lord Voldemort. But all of these will lead them back to Hogwarts, and what comes after is a clash between good and evil, and a climactic battle between Harry and Voldemort one last time.

Fans’ll be lining up to the box office, setting up tents in front of the cinema to get a peek of this movie as early as possible. As a fan as well, this movie is a culmination of a journey that began a decade ago—and my boy was this f**king good!

Deathly Hallows, Part 2’ is an amazing fan-service movie from beginning to end. Once the lights in the theater dimmed, and the Warner Bros. logo floats towards the screen, you’ll be hearing the roars of everyone because they know they’re in for something really good. And they are, they actually are.

The 2-part division of the ‘Deathly Hallows’ book onscreen seems cash grab-y. But the filmmakers correct the flaws the first part of this movie, and lay every possible thing they can for this. There’s not one dull moment throughout—you’ll not be getting something like the ‘camp scene’ from the first part—just good all popcorn magic.
The twists and reveals of the film is also worth looking, toppled with amazing visual effects that gave the surprises a more edgy look. Without spoiling, Snape will make you tear up, and Alan Rickman was terrific as Severus Snape, making this character have a more important role in the whole franchise.

The action sequences are really good, I’ll tell you that. Like I said, the visuals looked beautiful, and you can pinpoint the many things that are happening on one frame. I saw the movie in 3D (because you know somebody have to cash in for a more expensive movie ticket and that “immersive cinematic experience”.) and it looked dark, I mean almost unwatchable. The tint of the 3D glasses made the nighttime sequences (this film takes place on night for the most part.) very distracting and uncomfortable.

The geek rates it 10/10.

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' opens July 14, 2011 in 2D, 3D cinemas and IMAX locally distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures!
