Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Pt 2 – movie review
You’ve been studying the books, you’ve watched every film and you’ve learnt everything there is to know. The reason you walked into the cinema 10 years ago is about to play out in front of you. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 is the beginning of the end.
Tracking down the last of the Horcruxes and the battle comes to an end, Save the cheerleader save the world finally we can put to an end to ‘he who shall not be named’ (Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes))... but let’s be honest, he’s going to kill Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) whether we say his name or not. If those final Horcruxes can be found and destroyed, Voldemort will be weak enough to kill; the sole person who has torn apart Potter’s life.
With the final book being split over two films, part one tended to drag its feet as it got us closer to the climax of Voldemort’s demise. So entering part two on a movie high, the mood and tone never drops. It’s like the last 15 minutes of your regular film stretched over two hours. It continually keeps you up there, right till the very end leaving you feeling worn out, emotionally drained and with nothing left to say but oh-my-god.
