An epic journey has come to an end. So many years ago I opened this unusual book called “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. Tonight, I just finished watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. A long journey through the written pages of J.K. Rowling and as seen on the cinematic screen. One that will be long remembered, even as the credits roll at the end of this movie. (There are minor spoilers in this review)
What can I really say about this movie. I do think they missed a few things at the beginning of the movie, though I can’t really name them off the top of my head. After that, it feels (to quote the previous review of part 01) like it came off the pages of the book. They really skimmed over meeting Aberforth though, you see him, a few lines passed around and then gone. It may be that the movie was so long that they needed to and in the big scheme of things, Dumbledore’s brother is hardly much of a character in the book. A few fight sequences were changed as well as some characters, but overall the movie is the book and that is impressive.
One scene in particular that has Snape in it fairly heavily was probably the best scene in the whole movie. Alan Rickman gives a stunning performance in this scene and it really moves you. Despite having already read the book, this one scene made the entire movie worth watching. It is a rather pivotal plot scene as far as the entire series is concerned and is done very well. Kudos go to the job they did.
All in all, its a great ending to a very cherished series. If your a Harry Potter fan and haven’t seen this movie, your missing out. I recommend seeing it at least once. I enjoyed seeing these characters and the actors doing the job that they did.
