Harry Goes to Pot

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2Beth and I saw this at 3 AM, which in hindsight was probably a mistake. Oh, well. This was the last in the Harry Potter series (well, unless J.K. Rowling can be enticed into writing another one), and while it’s been a while since I read the book, it seemed to touch most of the bases, including the daring daylight robbery of Gringotts on dragon-back. There were a few moments that made me think, “Why didn’t the earlier movies cover this?”, but not as many as in Part 1. It did bother me a bit when Aberforth Dumbledore asks Harry why his brother never mentioned him, when he HAD appeared in other books. I’ve also noticed a trend of the film industry to try to turn just about anything into a lengthy action sequence. I didn’t really feel like we needed to watch Neville chase Nagini around for so long before finally killing her. The battle between Harry and Voldemort was also a bit drawn out, although I liked it when they had dropped their wands and just started smacking each other. Also, the part where Voldemort was disappearing and reappearing made me think of Ganon from The Legend of Zelda. For the most part, though, I didn’t notice any significant flaws. The epilogue was as pointless here as in the book, but we can’t blame the filmmakers for that one.
