Fiennes and Rickman get the actorly moments they've been building toward for so long, and the film is most fun when it sticks to mechanics: roller coaster rides, battle scenes, close calls.

In the 10 years since Harry's first big- screen close-up, the spell has never been broken. And we Muggles have been made better for the magic.

It's a pleasant irony that, just as the first installments of Rowling's oeuvre were better suited to page than screen, the final installments have reversed the relationship.

When the movie was over, a young boy sitting behind me said, "That was great!" He was satisfied, and rightly so.

Thankfully, Yates gives us one wonderful final voyage with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, a smashing, melancholy, and thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the eight-film saga.

The seven films to date have earned almost a billion dollars each, so it's obvious their followers are legion. But this is also a series that takes itself seriously, never more so than in this, the deathly finale.

Radcliffe's interpretation of Harry has been exemplary, truly amazing when you think about it.

This enthralling film ends the series on a high note, exceeding expectations and delivering a fine conclusion to the films.

It's a fight to the death, as good and evil whip out their wands and cross swords amid the ruins of what used to be the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is a bittersweet parting for the Boy Who Lived, an excellent finale for the popular boy wizard who has captured the hearts of so many people.

Passable, well-acted, but not one of the best films of the series.

The movie ... manages to be a worthy ending to what has become one of the greatest film franchises ever released.

Part 2 ends up being a worthy note for this decade-long franchise to go out on with a satisfying conclusion to bid farewell to these enduring characters.

What truly unifies this ten-year, eight-film saga is the sense of kinship with its lead trio of young wizards.

A wonderfully rich adaptation of the final book's last act, but the central focus on the three leads might leave some fans disappointed, especially those seeking a more thorough adaptation.

For the most part, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II picks up right where Part I, the franchise's shining beacon on a hill, leaves off.

It all ends. And to be sure, it's a fitting end for the storied franchise.

Deeply moving and perfectly phrased at every turn, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 bids adieu to a little piece of history in first-class style, and a beautifully heavy heart.

For the most part, the final movie delivers the combination of emotional intensity and rousing battle sequences befitting the end of a phenomenon that evolved from an unexpectedly popular children's book series to an era unto itself.

While swept up in the desperate search for Horcruxes, Yates allows us to feel once more as though we are very much in the middle of things, but, alas, it was a trick and a false hope, because in the end...it was, irrevocably, THE END.

This is exactly what you would expect - a perfect and exciting ending for those who have been following the franchise. Those who couldn't care less probably stopped reading ages ago.

Audience Reviews for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

I really thought I wasn't going to love this upon second viewing.
Nope, it's just as good as I remember it.

Super Reviewer

The deathly flaw in the franchise is that (like most adolescents, come to think of it) it believes that the world revolves around its hallowed protaganist. No protaganist = no life, nothing to do. Lots of visual shine and dazzle work to try to disguise that no character even exists w/o the lead's presence ... revealing the shallow heart of the piece. And so a film with a boatload of Britain's top talent all monotonously repeating two words over and over: "Harry Potter." "Harry Potter." You'll be saying it in your sleep. But the film? Meh.
