Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Part 2.

As you all probably know by now, I’m a huge Harry Potter fan.

So, of course I had to watch the last movie as soon as it started playing here, which was yesterday.

Basically, I am content. 🙂

I’ve had serious misgivings about The Half-blood Prince movie, but both Deathly Hallows movies were great.
Now, I have no misgivings regarding the changes they made to the story as it works great in the film, every part of the book I consider important is in this movie and in the midst of all that destruction that is the end of the Voldemort-Potter story, the movie managed to put in some scenes that make you laugh.
In my case, there are also scenes that make you cry as well.  But it’s never pathetic and the love causing them feels real.
And speaking of scenes, I don’t know what rating this movie has, but I wouldn’t recommend children watching it. It is rather brutal and dark.

I’ve had no problem following the story and understanding why things happen and who did what, but again, I can’t help but wonder how do people who never read the books manage to follow the story and how much do they actually get out of it? I have to think not as much as the readers of the books.

I’m not going to give any spoilers as I don’t want to ruin the experience of those who didn’t watch.
I just can’t help but feel a sense of closure I didn’t really feel after reading the book.
I guess that’s due to the fact that I wanted it to go on and in the mean time, I had enough time to come to terms that the story is finished and now that I saw it on the movie screen, it finally feels done.
And I mean that in the best possible way.

As I’m already planning when to go see it again. 🙂

P.S. I need to add one observation more. I think Daniel Radcliffe is an outstanding actor as there are parts in the movie when one might consider his acting stilted when actually he is portraying the HP character as he is supposed to. Harry doesn’t feel comfortable in all the situations happening in the book/movie and that is portrayed by Daniel’s acting.

    Another huge Harry Potter fan here! I haven't seen the last 2 films yet, but am definitely looking forward to them. Like you, I wonder about people who haven't read the books, since so much is left out of the films. By the way, I recently saw a video of Daniel Radcliffe singing and dancing in a Broadway musical, and he's fantastic. Definitely not like the uncomfortable Harry Potter character, which I agree he's playing as he should!

    Hi Doc Elly, it will be good for you now to see them both together. I was upset that I had to wait for the next one. :)Yes, much is left out of the movies and much is only hinted which is enough for those who read the books to provide the backstory for themselves.I had a greater emotional reaction to some scenes because I remember them from the books and gave them greated credit.

    nažalost ja sav izgleda cijepljen protiv Harry Pottera, jer dok svi moji frendovi lude i čekaju svaku knjigu i film, ja sam mislim pogledao samo prvi 🙂

    wineandfoof4u, ha čuj, nisi jedini. :DImam ja oko sebe takvih kolko želiš. Nije da te želim nagovarati, ali stvar je u tome da je prva knjiga izrazito dječja, a ni slijedeće dvije nisu daleko od toga.Tek od četvrte radnja postaje ozbiljnija i rekla bih interesantnija odraslima. Doduše, ja priznam da sam dijete u duši i oduvijek sam živjela u mašti pa je meni cijeli serijal super. 🙂
