Harry Potter n the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)

Harry Potter

the eighth n final sequel of Harry Potter (2001-2011) continued following Harry's adventure to destroy Lord Voldemort. they need to seek out the remaining 3 Horcruxes, which were magical items taking form of different objects, hidden in different parts of the town. these Horcruxes were the reason Voldemort remained immortal. by destroying them one after another, Voldemort became weaker n weaker. if all of the Horcruxes were destroyed, Voldemort would be destroyed. they forced their way into into the vault at Gringotts bank, found the first Horcrux but was left defending it without any weapons. the second Horcrux was found at Hogwarts. Harry seek out the ghost of Rowena Ravenclaw n finally found it at the Room of Requirement. Voldemort threatened to destroy Hogwarts if they would not hand over Harry Potter. with the new headmaster Snape fled, Professor McGonagall prepared Hogwarts for battle. during the battle, the threesome looked for Voldemort, targeting the last Horcrux, which was the snake, Nagini, that always followed Voldemort around. they reached just in time to witness Snape being killed by Nagini. Harry found out the reason Snape killed Dumbledore, n surrendered himself to Voldemort, because he was actually one of the Horcruxes.

with little time to waste, the film picked up the space right after it began! unlike Part 1 (2010), where the pace was torturous slow, we were thrilled n captivated with Part 2 (2011).
despite all the speed, the most emotional moment was given to Snape, especially when his memories were presented to Harry n the truth was revealed. he was a true hero, doing the things he had to do for those he loved. Harry's sacrifice finally made his character lovable. unlike all its previous sequels, the film no longer gave long explanations on things that still didn't make sense in the end. we enjoyed the unexpected twists here n there, having us leaving the cinema feeling completely satisfied.

  1. Only watched the first HP movie. I like my books better than the movies. XD

  2. A fitting finale! The pace was fast because it had to cover so much but well done.

    The Twerp and I

  3. LINA: that i have to agree, most books tuned out to be much more interesting than the real movie itself!

    JELLY: i totally love the fast paced version of HP, the slow ones get me so frustrated just sitting n waiting anxiously!

  4. OMG....I'm gonna have to go back and watch 2001 through 2010 before I watch this one.

    I know, I'm a disgrace...I've not seen or read any of the HP books or movies :(

    Thanks for sharing the review, Levian.

    Have a super day!

  5. Completely agree with your review. This is such a great final film for the franchise. I think David Yates and team already did a wonderful job.
