The final installment of the final book in the Harry Potter series has arrived from Warner Bros. and it is in theaters today.

The final chapter begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord’s three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered, and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.

Did you go see it?  What did you think? Was it all it could be, or should Warner Bros. have left everything in a single film?  Time for you to use the comment section below and share your thoughts, reviews, and pervy comments about Emma Watson.

GOOOOOO!

    I really liked it. I thought the pacing and acting was really well done. Obviously it heavily relied on your knowledge of the books/previous movies but because I’ve read and seen them all I went in to it with a good background and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

    The only complaint that I had is similar to my complaint with the Iron Man movies, the final battle is not long enough. I thought I read an interview with the Director who said he was taking liberties with the final battle to make it longer and more intense but I did not get the epic sense of the last battle between Harry and Voldermort.

    All in all I thought it was a great movie and if you are a Harry Potter fan, its a good watch but if you aren’t then you will not care or understand what is happening and probably shouldn’t see this movie.

    Just got back from seeing it and it was awesome. An ending to a saga never felt so natural and “unforced”…albeit bitter sweet. I cant wait for a full box set…this is truly a bunch of films defining a certain generation…and in my humble opinion, the final chapter represented it well.

    As far as some movie easter eggs…the un-leaked, real quality Dark Knight trailer was cool to see…but not as cool as the newest Rise of the Apes trailer that was shown…WOW!

    Got to see it back to back with part one. The local theater was running special screenings of part one all day with the last showing leading right up to the midnight premiere. It was awesome. I cried like a baby when the deaths happened. My wife thought it was hilarious that I was so emotionally invested in fictional characters. Oh well good movies now I gotta go buy the entire dvd set when it comes out.

    I liiked the movie but I thought most of it was done better in the book than the movie. I would of had the scene where Neville kills the snake be like the book where its a sudden surprise, instead of a drawn out expectation. I would of added Gwap battling the giants, and they really didnt expose that Voldemort wasn’t all everyone thought he was. In the book he dies in front of everyone and harry reveals to him all the things he didnt know. In wizardry killing people and having natural talent is no substitute for learning. Voldemort had the hallows stone and didn’t know it, had no ideal that you didn’t need to kill someone to take the elder wand from them (even though in pursuit of it he knew that it had been stolen from the person he was questioning who obviously hadn’t been killed.), and he had no ideal just how much family ties meant to people who actually had families (Narcissa betraying him and the spell Lilly cast on Harry to protect him from Voldy and the spell that was extended to his aunt and uncles home.). In the end Voldemort was found vastly lacking.

    I really didn’t care for it…I thought the pacing was weird (partly due to this being the second half of the story). The movie established certain plot points about the nature of wands and then abruptly forgot them when it came to Harry and Voldemort’s final confrontation in favor of an epic chase and battle. I agree with Seneca’s point above about the nature of their final showdown, and the movie ignored all that in favor of some action. A better filmmaker, script or both, could have done a more faithful adaptation of the endgame and still had plenty of dramatic tension in play.

    There were a few other plot points that were established and then forgotten, making me think the script went through some changes that weren’t shot, or scenes were shot without regard to the script at all. The prime example is the fact that at the beginning of the film it is established that Harry and company have possession of a certain wand and then literally two minutes later when that wand can grant them access to a certain place, there is no mention of it in any way shape or form…lazy.

    The performances and effects were exactly what you’d expect from the Potter films, that is the adults were great, the kids were OK and the effects were spectacular. An inconsistent end to an inconsistent series of movies.
