Guest Post - In Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Written by Kees Fralick

The last installment of the Harry Potter franchise was all a real Potter fan could want and more. This installment felt years ahead of any of the other films, It almost felt like a completely different entity. The film was far more fast paced then its prior part one brother with impressive effects and with a heavy driven dramatic end that played off the viewers attachment to the characters and there bonds to the magical Potter world.

Every actor seemed to step up their acting chops in order to give this unforgettable franchise the send off it deserved, with special acknowledgment to Alan Rickman and his haunting portrayal of the twisted, depressing new Dean of Hogwarts, Professor Severus Snape.

The Movie played off more like a WWII War time epic, It was dark, twisted and eerily evocative. There was no enchanting music that you would be used to hearing in the previous movies. and no warm nostalgic colors to brighten the mood. Instead you are given dark shades and splotchy grimy shadows interbred with deep droning tones. It opened with a scene of the students of Hogwarts marching in perfect unison behind there twisted new leader ushering in a new regime of terror and infamy. And as Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ronald Weasley (Rupert Grint) continue forth on there journey to find and destroy horcruxes they are finally lead back to the school they grew up in only to find it surrounded by death eaters that are ready for a final Showdown.

The Film Brings the best out of the new real 3D technology and allows the viewer to truly feel like a part of the adventure. The startling effects are only complimented by the breathtaking 3D graphics. The film ends with such a finality to it, bringing complete closure to whoever watches it. When you leave the theater you feel like a chapter in your life has been closed, it doesn’t leave you wondering, and it doesn’t leave you wanting.

Thanks to Kees for writing a better, more eloquent review than I ever could. Love.
