Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part2 Review

When you sit down to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the only thing going through your mind is 'IT ALL ENDS' tonight! But was the movie worth the hype?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was extremely well made and stuck to the actual book. It created a great premise for the final part to come. But Part 2 in my opinion got carried away with Harry Mania. In order to show more of Potter, the Director David Yates decided to skip scenes crafted for other main characters and this is where the movie lacked its soul.

Harry Potter movie series was never about Harry and Voldemort alone. It's about Ron, Hermione, Hagrid and Weasley Twins as well. But the final part was so engrossed with showing Harry in almost every frame, it completely forgot about the other characters. Over the years people have felt a connection with each character and when in part one George lost an ear, we all felt it. But in part 2, when Fred dies, it is just shown as a fleeting glimpse. Many won't even know that Fred died. A character so well built in the books needed a better screen space. Instead, you see screen time wasted on Mrs Weasley fighting Bellatrix, which was hilarious in the way Mrs Weasley so easily killed Bellatrix. It was like the Director just wanted to get over it and finish Bellatrix in a jiffy.

The first half starts off quite well and stays faithful to the book till about the Gringott's episode. But soon after that it starts to go awry.  The final few changes like Ron and Hermione battling Voldemort's snake is just absurd and too stretched. The mega fight that everyone's waiting for in the end never happens. You just see small glimpses of destruction and fight, but most of the time you are shown Harry being chased by Voldemort.

The movie will do BIG business without doubt because of the sentimental values associated with it. But this is certainly not the best way to say Goodbye to Harry Potter.
