Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Review: Endings are usually the problems of most movie series. They usually end up being mediocre and unsatisfying or they are made to cash in people. The great thing about Harry Potter movies, the filmmakers are taking their job seriously. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a great ending of the series. It’s more than throwing a lot of action and exposition. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is one of those conclusion that actually care about the series. Deathly Hallows part 1 is just the first and the half of the second act of the story. Deathly Hallows part 2 begins straight forward to its continuation of the last Harry Potter film. And of course, if you haven’t seen Deathly Hallows Part 1 or any of the Harry Potter movies, you’ll be confused to death. Obvious isn’t it?
It’s pretty clever to make the whole Deathly Hallows story like a slow burn. It started from silent thrills, plans, and escapes to big and loud battles. The series doesn’t only end with big and loud action. It also gives us some nostalgia from the old Harry Potter films. And we still get to see more of the characters. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, itself is pretty exciting. It’s a good choice to let David Yates direct the rest of the Potter films because he made this series darker and bolder. Aside from that the film still has its compelling moments like the Prince’s Tale scene. No need to tell about the performances of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and the rest of the cast because they are obviously good to their characters but there is one actor here is worth mention and that is Alan Rickman.
We already knew him as Snape but there is one scene where we see more of his character and his performance was excellent. The filmmaking, the special effects is obviously good. The music score really made the battle scenes epic and perfect for a final film. It’s really hard to write a review about Harry Potter. What an amazing achievement to faithfully bring Rowling’s epic saga to the big screen with the same cast and largely the same crew, maintaining the brilliant quality right to the end. Oh my god, its only just sinking in, this was the end, but what a great great end. Either you’re a fan or not, you’ll love Harry Potter series. And yes, this is another remarkable movie series.
