Review

Unless you have been living on the moon for the last 8 years you cannot fail to have heard about the Worlds most famous Wizard, Harry Potter. Originally a massively successful set of children’s novels, the Harry Potter story enters the final chapter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: part 2.

As with all the other HP films, Deathly Hallows p2 remains faithful to the novel under the watchful eye of JK Rowling and is brought onto screen in the same brilliant way as the books captured the minds of young and old alike. Seeing the young adults of Harry, Hermoine and Ron take on the army of Deatheaters and Lord Voldemort in this epic climax is what fans of the series have been waiting for.

We pick up from where part 1 left us with Harry trying to find more Horcruxes that will allow him to eventually kill Voldemort. After the slightly boring and dragged out scenes of DH part 1, this final chapter hardly pauses for breathe.

Expect some terrific wizard magic spell-fights, broom riding, dragons, goblins and snakes – its as if all the best parts of the previous Harry Potter films have been crammed into one great film.

Daniel Radcliffe is once again believable as the humble young Wizard who has the world depending on him but takes it all in his stride while Emma Watson and Rupert Grint again come up with their classic lines and perfomances which stand them in good stead to be joint leading-roles (as it just wouldn’t be Harry Potter without his 2 best friends).

Lord Voldemort and the Deatheaters

Although the Harry Potter series started off for children with something in the stories to appeal for adults, we do feel that Deathly Hallows part 2 is a bit too dark for some younger viewers. There’s nothing gruesome or of profanities but given the events that lead up to the dramatic end scene, there are some parts that younger viewers might not enjoy. Having said that, the film remains a twin to the book so anyone who’s read this to their kids might not worry too much about their little ones seeing it.

Aside from the trio of young wizards, further mentions should go to Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) and Alan Rickman (Professor Severus Snape). Both of which carry their parts so well that if we see Rickman in anything now we immediately think of his slow, dark drawl he uses as Snape.

It’s not easy finding something we didn’t enjoy about this film – thats not because we’re massive HP fans but mostly because Deathly Hallows part 2 does exactly what it set out to achieve – bring the saga to a fitting climax that does the rest of the brand proud.
