Another Harry Potter Spetactular With The Deathly Hallows

  • Aug 5, 2011
Harry Potter is amazing when you finally give him a chance, he will charm his way into your life. If you are like me, it sometimes takes a while to get me to read a book. My wife has read all of the books and that is how she has got me to read all of the Harry Potter books along with her. The main reason that I got interested in these books is because I like to be interested in going to the show and discussing them with my wife. Plus, going the show to see it on the big screen is one of the things that we like to do. I did notice that the books are a lot better than the show, they are more descriptive and you can use your imagination when you are reading the books. Even though the movies are still very good and popular, the books still give more detail. This was the forth time that we had taken our daughter to see one of the Harry Potter movies and we took a chance to see if she was still interested in Harry Potter. Like it or not there is a little Harry Potter in all of us.

This movie is rated PG 13, but do not worry the language might be a little strong, but not more than what your children will hear on the school yard playground. There are quite a lot of scary and very intense violent action scenes, these images mey be frightening to the younger crowd, so if your child gets scared or has nightmares then, be very careful when you take them to the show. The whole movie will last 1 hours and thirty three minutes, that is a considerable lot less than all of the other movies and remember that does not include the preadmission show. All of the Harry Potter movies have just about the same cast. If you have seen the first movie you will have seen a very young Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Harry Potter in all of the movies), he is all grown up and has spent several years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

When this movie starts Harry is continuing where he left off, and that is searching for the three final horcrux‘s with Ron and Hermoine. He is successful with finding the four earlier ones and tries to see if he is up to doing battle with the great Lord Voldemort. This is a battle of enormous consequences‘, it is a battle of life or death for all of his friends that are involved with looking for the final Horcrux’s. Most of the usual cast members from the other movies meet up with Harry at Hogwarts, these characters include; Daniel Radcliffe who plays Harry Potter, Rupert Grint who plays Ron Weasley, Emma Watson who plays Hermione Granger, Ralph Fiennes who plays Lord Voldemort, Micheal Gambon plays Albus Dumbledore, Maggie Smith who plays the head mistress at the school Professor Minerva McGonagall, Alan Rickman who plays the main villain Professor Severus Snape, Matthew Lewis plays Neville Longbottom, Tom Felton plays Draco Malfoy, Evanna Lynch plays Luna Lovegood, Warwick Davis plays Griphook/ Professor Fillius Flitwick, Jason Isaacs plays Lucius Malfoy, Helena Bonham Carter plays Bellatrix Lestrange, Bonnie Wright who plays Ginny Weasley, David Thewlis plays Remos Lupin.

There are a lot of action scenes where killing becomes consistent with the story. The movie starts out a little slow but I just waited it out, if you wait a little longer the suspense starts to build and so does the excitement. They do leave out a lot of stuff that is in the book, but I guess that they have to do that to be able to put all of the scenes on the big screen in an hour and a half. All of the actors and actress do an exemplary job of acting. They have to make everything flow together and still keep you riveted to your seat. In this movie they did that for me. My wife and I could not even get to refill our popcorn, that is how exciting that the director keeps this movie.

When Harry finally finds the other horcrus’s, they have to go on a trip to recover this special Horcrux before Lord Voldemort can get to them, if they can they can destroy them all, this will stop the reign of terror that Lord Voldemort is planning. You will find that all of the computer graphics are excellent and the acting by all of the actors lives up to all of the hype. The battle scene where the two do battle while falling off of the edge of the wall will make you gasp hoping that Harry will survive. This will keep your heart pounding throughout the whole movie, and your loved one grasping your arm with excitement. This movie even keeps the love alive and though love is in the air at Hogwarts, just like any kind of love story the right girls end up with the right boys in the end.

This is an excellent movie even though it starts out a little slow, it will drastically pick up the action during the rest of the movie. Your kids will love it, but I would not pay any extra to see it twice. It also will not hurt to wait for this to come out on DVD. I can give this 3.5 stars.

Very in-depth coverage and I agree with what you've written. I wasn't a fan of the saga but the last few chapters certainly got me....rather slowly, but still got me. Nice review!

The Endgame To The Harry Potter Saga Presents A Bittersweet Close....
For me, the “Harry Potter” movie franchise has been more or less a hit or a miss. I liked its main premise of the introductions of a boy into the world of wizardry that results into the character’s maturity and finally realizing that such a beginning could only end in an epic tale of heroism, of commitment to peace even under the shadow of war. I was never a fan of the “Harry Potter” saga (though I saw each and every movie), and I began to like the franchise after the …

                                        Okay. I’m going to start with the pre-Potter party details. I bought two tickets to the midnight showing a month in advance. I then went out to buy a Gryffindor tie and scarf the week of and dressed up on Thursday. I even decked out the office with Harry Potter galore, buying themed food, drinks, and decorations. I am a rabid fan. So did I have …

After all these years its finally over, what started out all those years ago with three akward little kids ended with three matured adults. I grew up reading these books, dragging my mom to barnes and noble at midnight to wait in a long line just to get my hands on the newest addition to the series. I was excited when the first movie came out because it was so perfect and closer to the text than the majority of books turned movies are. Around the third film i was starting to loose faith in the movie …

Not having seen all the Harry Potters I went to see this on opening weekend with friends who updated me on part 1 to bring me up to date.     If you have not seen Deathly Hallows part 1, or the previous Potters here is what you need to know. Harry Potter, young wizard with friends, gets into trouble (again) and uses magic to get out (again). Mortal enemy Voldemort intends to get him and rule the magical world with his evil powers. He must be stopped before it's too late. His …

It All Ends. With little doubt the most appropriate tag line of the franchise. After seven books and eight films the epic series of the boy wizard comes to a glorious end. The people in front and behind the camera know the expectations are high from the fans. With pressure coming from muggles everywhere the cast and crew bring their A game and provide us with a brilliant end to a wonderful series.      In front of a packed theater of Harry Potter faithful, you would expect the …

'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2' 'Two Jews On Film' One Gives It A Standing 'O' (Video)
         'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows-Part 2 is the final adventure in the 'Harry Potter' series. The film is directed brilliantly by David Yates and cleverly adapted for the screen by Steve Klos.      This is not only the last film in the franchise, but it is the best.       From the first shot...where we see Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) holding his sword up to the darkened sky, followed …

   The final chapter to this fantasy phenomena served justice to both fans of the series and simple moviegoers. I see a pattern lately with Return of the King, Toy Story 3, Deathly Hallows Part 2 and probably The Dark Knight Rises where the last movies in the franchise might also become the best in the franchise. It's definitely an era where you have people putting a lot of effort into delivering that perfect ending to a story. The Harry Potter movies were always a hit or a miss. There's …

Star Rating:         It’s never easy saying goodbye. I can’t say that I grew up with the Harry Potter films – I was eighteen years old when the first was one released – but they have been a part of my life for ten years, and after that amount of time, anyone is libel to grow attached to what they’re used to seeing. Alas, we have reached the end. But I should not make this an elegiac fanboy essay. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part …

Well, it's finally over
Part 2 starts at the moment Part 1 ended with Voldemort getting Dumbledore's wand and Harry grieving at Dobby's grave. Still in search of horcruxes, Harry and his pals' journey takes them to Gringott's Bank and finally back to Hogwarts, which is now under Death Eater control and a grim place, indeed.      This movie is exactly like the book, so I knew what to expect and wasn't surprised or disappointed, just not particularly entertained. This director …
