REVIEW – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
The Harry Potter film series comes to an end with the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.” While the story the film was based on was presented as one complete story, it proved to have so much content that it was split into two movies when adapted to the big screen.
The script from veteran Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves is very close to the source material. It provides a fantastic conclusion to the series which is full of elaborate and spellbinding special effects. Fans of the actor Ralph Fiennes (“The English Patient” and “Schindler’s List”) will be impressed to see him take on the role of the evil Lord Voldemort, a great addition to an already perfect cast.
In fact, the most interesting part of these movies has been watching actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint grow into powerful young adult actors right before our eyes. With this final installment, it is clear they are destined to take on some great roles in the future.
Most importantly, the film brings the Harry Potter series to a great conclusion that will not disappoint fans of the series. The only problem I had with this near perfect film was that I paid extra to see the movie in 3D. As it turns out, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” was actually filmed in 2D and later converted to 3D by the studio. This means that the 3D effects are not nearly as stunning as you would expect. However, it also means you can save money by seeing the standard version and will not miss out on anything.
Overall, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” is well worth seeing for its dazzling special effects and great production quality.
