Jammed with action and emotion, the final Harry Potter movie is the only film in the series that is in 3-D, and it’s worth it. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 neatly wraps up the young wizard's life as he faces his destiny.
After 10 years and eight films, this final chapter might leave you misty-eyed if you are not careful.
Harry, Ron and Hermione (Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson) continue their mission to destroy the rest of the seven Horcruxes that contain pieces of the soul of the evil Lord Voldemort. You don’t have to be a Potterphile to enjoy this movie, but Deathly Hallows: Part 2 does provide some long-promised answers. It also dares to pose some eternal questions that will stick with you long after the final credits.
Many people have said it was a greed-based decision to stretch the final book into two films. I don't think so. Spreading the action over two films means this second half doesn't feel overstuffed or overlong. In fact, it’s the shortest film in the series at just over two hours.
The flick-o-meter has no problem giving Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 five out of five. It is a great end to a great series.
