Excellent Movie....A little Frustrating if you know the Books
Let me start by saying that I enjoyed this movie more than the others in the series. It kept most closely to the book, but there were some things that were left out or changed that frustrated me. All in all though, an excellent ending to the Harry Potter movie franchise.
Professor McGonagall was amazing! Maggie Smith did an excellent job. The scene where she duels Snape is fantastic! I love that she takes charge.
The scene at Gringott's was very well done - almost exactly like it was in the book.
Harry's Mother does a really fantastic job. It's the first time in the movies that she gets any real screen time.
Snapes's memories are well done - the scene with him crying over Lily's body is heart-wrenching.
Neville is adorable. He did a really great job. It was also hinted that he had a thing with Luna (which wasn't in the books) but I really liked.
I thought Danielle Radcliff, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson were pretty good - I don't think their acting has really been that great throughout the series, but they managed to pull it off in the end.
The scene where the teachers are performing the spell to protect the castle was really cool. Yay Slughorn!
The Harry death scene is really touching. With his parents, Sirius, and Lupin and then with Dumbledore.
Mrs. Weasley vs. Bellatrix duel was awesome!
NO chemistry whatsoever between Ron and Hermione - there was much more chemistry between Harry and Hermione
NO Dumbledore back story - it's sort of hinted at in the bar about Arianna, and then the bit about Grindewald....but that is it! I was disappointed with that
NO Fred death scene! I was really upset about how Fred's death was portrayed! I just shows him lying there dead for like a half a second and then the scene moves on! I wanted more!
Crabbe replaced by Zambini. This wasn't so bad, and didn't make a difference to the plot, Goyle dies instead ofCrabbe. It still irked me though.
Percy never reappears.
Harry snaps the elder wand instead of repairing his wand! Again, not really important, but it irritated me.
How does Harry find out about Lupin's son? There is no mention of him previously in the movie?
Voldemort's death wasn't as dramatic as I would have liked it to be. He just disintegrates into paper wispies? LAME!!!
The final scene was a little upsetting. A) they didn't actually look older - especially Hermione B) NOTHING was explained! You don't meet the rest of the children, and they all just stand around and give each other significant looks! This whole scene could have been left out for me.
With all of that said, it was a movie and if you've read the books the movie is NEVER as good as the book. I think with that in mind, the movie was done pretty well overall. Most of my complaints were only because I HAD read the books, if you hadn't, you probably would have found the series, and the final movie, very satisfying.
Great until the end.....
This film started out spectacularly. A very exciting and action packed opening scene that really set the stage for the rest of it. As for the rest of the movie...it was good, but just good. The fight scenes were great, especially those between the "movers". The plot was a little complicated, but overall not too difficult to follow. And then there was the end. This was one of the worst endings I have ever seen in a movie. It simply stopped. Like the editor had simply cut out the rest of it. I mean I understand leaving some things up to the audiences imagination, but this movie posed so many questions and set up this elaborate set of events that all culminated into....nothing. Extremely disappointed.
