Not bad, but not good, and too short
This movie, put simply, was made for anyone that has NOT read the books. The plot was really just small snippets of major plot points, with their only purpose, to lead us into the intense final battle scenes. The fight scenes were part of the movie that were done quite well.
The movie lacked any kind of somewhat complex structure. It dismissed many scenes which i think made the books what they are. The movie showed no smaller details and missed out many scenes, for example, the Harry/Ginny growing relationship, Harry/Chos relationship(besides from a kiss), the fountain fight, nothing is mentioned about prefects, quidditch, N.E.W.T.S, Harry's aspiration to become an auror, Hagrids fight against thugs, valentine, Fred and Georges joke shop and Sirius's 2-way mirror. Nor was Harrys anger scene in Dumbledores office included, which gave reason for the whole book, it was instead cut down to a very brief scene in which nothing was revealed about Sirius's death.
Overall, the movie was probably a let down for 'Harry Potter' fans or anyone who had read the book. However, it had its moments and the fight scenes and large sets were quite amazing. Another positive was the casting, with all cast members acting well. However these positives do NOT make up for the plot holes. It definitely had an issue with length and was way too short. For these final books they should be around the 200+ minute mark. I would happily even sit through a 5 hour movie. Anything to see the book transformed into the movie successfully.
It was barely worth seeing, and frustrating.
