Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II 3D(2011)
It all ends here. Part two of the climactic finale of the Harry Potter series (JK Rowling's last book, The Deathy Hallows, was split in two for the movies) brings the epic to a close, including the final showdown between Voldemort and Harry, and the destruction of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry....

After destroying one Horcrux and discovering the significance of the three Deathly Hallows, Harry, Ron and Hermione continue to seek the other Horcruxes in an attempt to destroy Lord Voldemort. However, now that the Dark Lord has obtained the yet unbeatable Elder Wand, he aims to complete his final stage to ultimate power and launches an attack on Hogwarts School, where the trio return for one last stand against the dark forces that threaten to take over the Wizarding and Muggle worlds.
Joining the cast this time is Ciarán Hinds as Aberforth Dumbledore, brother of Albus.Hide
YOUR RATING & REVIEWWATCHLIST
BY Aaron Yap Flicks Writer
Speaking as a casual viewer of the Harry Potter franchise – i.e. someone who has never read the books and won’t bawl their eyes out when the finale fades to black – Deathly Hallows: Part II still strikes me as a perfectly acceptable capper to the series. In parts, the film seems rushed – there’s an unmistakable feeling of stepping-up to reach the end – but it helps to remember that it’s essentially one long sustained climax, the conclusion of an entire saga. Certain plot points will remain incomprehensible to non-fans, but there’s so much glorious, eye-filling incident to be had that it won’t be an issue while you’re watching it (post-film reflection is another story…)....

As much as Part I was table-setting for the inevitable, Part II pulls out all the stops with its wand-wielding spectacle and dramatic twists, leaving much of Hogwarts in ruins as Potter (Radcliffe, acting his heart out) searches for the remaining horcruxes to defeat Lord Voldemort. So it’s a pretty bleak – and relatively humourless – two hours, complete with a serious body count and the demise of a central character that achieves a blunt, brute force rarely seen in the other films. But in-between all the tumult and tragedy are those glimpses of levity – Ron and Hermione pashing, McGonagall (Maggie Smith) gleefully weaving a spell she’s always wanted to – that remind us of what charmed us to Potterverse in the first place. Part II is imperfect, but it’s an exciting, appropriately epic and for the most part, emotionally satisfying finish that should please its rabid fans and the others who’ve stuck around never realising they’d be cast under the spell of a young wizard for seven films.Hide

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II 3D
BY JayC4Shaw superstar
Loved this movie compared to the book, which I am sorry to say, fell flat at the end.
Loved the way we got to revisit each pivotal location one last time and loved the contrast from the once happy place to the dark time. So fitting.
Though his reveal-ance of his true character was a tear jerker I wish it portrayed the darker side of Harry's father - with which, we... More would've gained paramount respect of Snape's hate towards Harry as well as Harry's gratitude towards the end. Where was the vision of James teasing Snape? Should have been there.
Also, did anybody noticed the child Lily had brown eyes? Weird.
One thing that got to me was the way Voldemort died. The fourth movie had a more epic moment between the two characters than this one did. WIth the likes of Avatar and Transformers effects I was expecting this final moment to be much more intense than it was. It was as if Voldemorts death, though expected, didn't have enough focus by the writers.
Professor Mcgonagal was LOVELY
The ending scene was beautiful, Emma Watson was the perfect mother I expected her to be - this was much better done than the book even, in my mind.
Funny that Ginny never really seems as important to Harry as Ron and Hermione are, and funnier still when they close up on the four at the end, and she all too quickly zooms out of the shot.
Still the fans and her characters emergence versus Cho's dismissal, always felt was quite sudden. It didn't provide adequate time for audiences to adjust to Harry's change of preferences.... Still, a great farewell for FANS.
All in all loved it but I do feel my love was more supported by my life's journey with the whole series rather than this movie standing on its own.Hide
