It was really good! If you thought part 1 was a sleeper, part 2 makes up for it. It had action, comedy, sentiment, and heartbreak – everything you need to capstone a 14-year saga. This movie delivers. There are some great moments like Harry saying, “that was unfortunate” in a deadpan tone in response to something that happens to a certain goblin. Another one-liner was said by a giddy Professor McGonagall, “Oh, I’ve always wanted to use that spell.” This movie is a strong PG-13 filled with scary imagery, blood and magical deaths. There was a guy in our midnight showing with four kids in the 5-year old range. Too young.I’m glad to see the series completed. The latest installment is in 3-D. The 3-D was done well but I can’t say it is necessary for the experience.
The next time you have 20 hours to spare you should watch the series from the beginning. You will be rewarded if you stick around for the epilogue for a nice bit of symmetry.
