Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Movie Review

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jul 16, 2011
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

July 15, 2011, marked the end of a magical decade - a decade of wonder, wizardry and friendship. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 delivered a perfect, climactic conclusion to the Harry Potter franchise. And Kidzworld has the movie review.

The Story Continues

The film continued exactly where Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 left off - at Shell Cottage, with the burial of Dobby the House Elf. Harry, Ron and Hermione enlist Griphook - a Gringotts goblin - to help them access Bellatrix Lestrange’s vault where one of Lord Voldemort’s horcruxes is hidden.

Hogwarts Under Attack

On their quest to destroy all the horcruxes, Harry and his friends return to Hogwarts. But Harry’s presence brings danger to the school and its students. As Voldemort’s army prepares for attack, some unassuming heroes step up to the plate. Hogwarts becomes a place of destruction and devastation, as many lives are lost. But in the end, Harry must face Voldemort alone.

The Bottom Line

Dividing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two movies was a wise decision. Like the book, the first part dragged a bit in order to set the stage for the conclusion. Devoting two hours to the last third of the book was brilliant. It allowed the film to take its time, add drama and stay true to the book. Aside from the wonderful effects and much-improved acting on everyone's part, the movie gave the same sense of doom, desperation and finality that J.K. Rowling created in her story. They couldn’t have done a better job.

Ron and Hermione's Kiss

And the kiss - oh the kiss! - between Ron and Hermione that has been ten years in the making plays out differently than in the book. But it is passionate and oh-so-wonderful nonetheless. If you plan to see this film in theatres (which you must!), bring a box of tissues. You’ll absolutely need it.
