What can I say . One of the best of the series, spectacular, one of the best conclusion to a series that I have ever saw, heart pumping. All those phrases and more would apply to this film. Seeing it in 3D probably made it for me at least, a perfect visual and entertaining experience. I would rank this one up with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004). Which in my opinion until this one was the best of the series. Again this is an opinion and opinions tend to be of a personal choice . But looking at polls across the web I think I was not alone on this assessment. Most polls rate Deathly Hallows – Part 2 as the second best film. That would be a tough one if you asked me. Deathly Hallows – Part 2 had all those elements I enjoyed from the best scenes of all the other Harry Potte movies . It was deeper in plot isn some ways then the others and tied all the loose ends as in the book series had done.
Usually I pick some highlights to share of the film that either made the film or broke it. In this case there were so many highlights it was hard to keep track of them all. Unlike Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 which was a snoozer ( I know I will hear it from the faithful on saying that ) and had many low lights such as the pace of the film. And yes I do understand that Part 1 was a set up film. Being an avid Babylon 5 fan I can appreciate the set up film . However truth be told they are not the greatest ones to experience. But they are the ones that need to be seen to understand the whole franchise especially the endings. That said Part 2 did not disappoint one bit. I was expecting a pay off and sure enough I got it.
One little parental warning. I noticed many parents taking little kids to the theater and the kids being frightened to the point of tears in some cases. This was a dark film and not really for the kids. Unlike the 1st of the series that was set up as a quasi kid movie . This film was aimed for an older audience. Not saying a kids may not enjoy it. But I do suggest that you go see the movie first before taking your kids. You know them better and could gage what is good for them or not. Me I would not take my youngest but I would take my 12 year old.
