Snape and Lily laying in the grass transforming leaves into a flock of birds was beautiful. Nevill and Luna and the twins and the Order and Harry and Ron and Hermione. Rowling, that one of the protagonists would die in this final episode. How disturbing and still great! He is one of my favourite characters and he finally appears as the hero he is! Also, I was crying the all the time. I'm rating the quality of the movie, the Bluray disks and the packaging here. No cheers or hugs when Harry appeared in the great hall? Positives: - It opened superbly, and subtly but smartly recapped the 'Horcruxes' + 'Deathly Hallows' which was fantastic.
It was nice almost recognizing everything from the book. It didn't feel 'big' enough if that makes sense. Noticing that hundreds of people have hopped onto this product review page to give it one star for the UltraViolet streaming digital copy included in the Multi-format package. The effects in the vault were great and the dragon looked good too. The pensieve sequence was also done very well, and once again, Rickman gave his best performance of the series. I'm sad that there were only 7 books and 8 movies and that it's over.
What I loved: - Prince's tale, The Forest Again, Resurrection Stone, Gringrotts, King's Cross and the Opening sequences. I hate it happening, period, especially at the hands of Molly Weasley. The main part I had issues with was it ws drawn out with the battle between Harry and Voldemort voldyvolvo and Harry talking to the Grey Lady. Although I would have enjoyed seeing the original scene where Harry curses Alecto Carrow for spitting at McGonagall I liked the scene in the Great Hall. I highly recommend The Deathly Hallows Part 2 and it is, in the end, a superb finish to a superb movie franchise. The trio talking to Griphook and Ollivander was brilliant just like I wanted them to do it in the movie + it had a ffeeling of Part 1 and I loved part 1 to pieces.
Also plaguing him are doubts about Dumbledore as he learns he may not have known the man as well as he thought he did. Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord's three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. Biggest letdown were those 2 things. While I was awaiting Snape's dead with anticipation was I kinda dissappointed by the sappyness. I've always been pro-epilouge and they did it justice. I thought this film was incredible! The bit with Aberforth and Ariana was loyal to the book and good but it didn't go into Dumbledore's story - it was just hinted.
There is little for me to criticize here except for one thing: something about the ending felt somehow very disengaged and somewhat unsatisfying. But still good The final battle between Harry and Voldemort was just. More than that though, the way Voldemort reacts to it. For me, I found that the whole movie seemed alot more emotionally engaging than the previous movies. These moments are well placed, reminding us, the audience, of just how dangerous Voldemort can be. Still, in all the explosions and special effects the film is filled with emotion in two ways. The only other thing they could have done was make the movie 4 hours long.
Make sure you bring a lot of tissues! I was so sad when he was holding Lily and crying. Exciting, dangerous and I loved seeing teachers and students stand up for Harry! The Final Battle of Hogwarts Step up and play the parts of your heroes in the epic finale of the entertainment event of the decade. It's more of a horror as it's not just fantasy disturbing but real life disturbing too. I thought it was very well played by Tom Felton. I suspect long-time fans can predict who has paired up with whom. I know people died but Harry deserves some respect - this was the moment the series was leading up to and add to that the cuts between the Nagini scene it seemed a bit lackluster to me, as was the response.
It had a sense of the first movie with the kids going off to Hogwarts again. Preparing the castle for the battle was so so exciting. McGonagall is just amazing in this movie in general. Snape's death was violent, but so powerful. Helena is doing a superb job there. Or, if you do not have a lot of time, you could stretch it out over 2 weekends.
However, as always, I had a few issues with it: - I was really disappointed that Harry didn't actually see Fred's death. Why do they all die differently? I'd like to apologise for spelling mistakes. I've mentioned in a previous review of Part 1 that the 3D version of Hallows was way too dark to be enjoyable and that the 2D version was much better. But first we have the revelations involved in Snape's final tears. The final film ties together the whole story, including some major revelations in Harrys' world and certain characters. It didn't feel that rushed but then it did after Gringotts.
Again, it wasn't in the book but I liked that they went a bit astray. After a rocky start where the cinema people actually blew up 5 - 10 of the speakers when the sound of the movie came on and we had to wait 55 minutes! It could have been longer but Julie Walters did the quote justice. Some of my favorite parts: - Snape addressing the students to come forward to tell about Harry Potter and the duel that follows between Snape and McGonagall. I hope everyone who didnt read the book really really got the amazingness and braveness of this character. I hold that if the movie retains the essence of the source material even sometimes at the sacrifice of particular scenes or secondary story-lines then the film has done its job.
