Saying Goodbye to Hogwarts... In a Good Way
18 July 2011 | by (Kansas City, KS) – See all my reviews

As many people have already seen, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 is out in Theaters. I will not spoil this film for you if you have not seen it yet. I will let you form your own conclusions as to whether you wish to see it or not.

As everyone knows, this is the last film in the Harry Potter franchise, started 10 years ago with Mr. Chris Columbus at the helm. Many people credit the third film of the series, Prisoner of Azkaban, as the moment the franchise went from made for children to a more mainstream, mature audience. I have to give major credit to Mr. Columbus though as without him, the visions, actors, and feel of what we know within the films would not have been created.

Several years later, we are at the end of an epic journey. We have laughed, cried, looked on with awe and inspiration. Mr. David Yates returns to his role and directs a wonderful end to J.K. Rowling's loved works of literature.

To explain how I felt while watching this film is difficult to achieve. I was enthralled from the opening scene to the start of the credits. Very few films capture me like that where I am so in tuned with the story. Star Trek (2009), Inception, and Avatar are a few of the movies in which I have found myself repeat visits due to wanting to see parts of the movie that I have missed along the way.

The film takes you on a roller coaster ride starting off slow, until you reach the first action sequence, then rushes headstrong into another series of scenes, focusing mostly on Harry and his charge of destroying the horcruxes. This is Harry's story. This is his moment to set the wizarding world right.

Along the way, several characters stand out. Nevil Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) makes a stand and Professor McGonagall goes to war. There are many moments in which supporting cast members take the foreground for a moment or two, but it is still Harry's story throughout the movie.

I have to applaud Alan Rickman for his portrayal of Professor Snape. He has always amused me in every movie and he doesn't fail here. Another film to see how great of an actor he is (besides Die Hard and Galaxy Quest); Bottle Shock.

Now, was it a perfect movie. No. The CG at points looked amateurish and some of the dialog didn't fit well into the movie. Does it deter you from enjoying the experience. It shouldn't. These are just little things that annoy me.

If you read the books, which I am sure most of you have, the story doesn't follow the book as well as it did in Part 1. I have yet to see any movie adaption of a well loved book ever faithfully follow the book to the letter. Even Game of Thrones didn't follow the books to the letter, but it did a good job.

Enjoy the movie for what it is: A satisfactory end to a magical, coming of age, story.
