Movie Synopsis: Harry, Hermione, and Ron are close to completing their goal of destroying Voldemort’s Horcruxes, and at the same time finding out more about the mysterious Deathly Hallows.  Harry is also learning more information about Professor Snape, Professor Dumbledore, and his parents. And as Voldemort and his Death Eaters take the fight against the Order of the Phoenix directly to Hogwarts castle itself, Harry must lead the forces of good in a final all-out battle against the evilest wizard of all-time, all while putting the final pieces of a complex puzzle together.

Movie Review: Deathly Hallows Part 2 of 2 is an amazing movie.  This movie picks up right where Part 1 left us, and as such we are halfway through Rowling’s final novel of the series.  The second half of the novel is full of action-packed sequences, and as such this movie is full of intense battle scenes around Hogwarts, which the filmmakers have impressively designed and brought to life.  The ensemble cast all have moments to shine, including Deputy Headmistress Professor McGonagall’s humourous quote, “I’ve always wanted to use that spell!”  Although the ensemble cast doesn’t always have a lot of time on the screen, when they are present, they absolutely shine in their roles.  Maggie Smith as McGonagall is fantastic, and Alan Rickman as Professor Snape is flawless in his execution of some emotional scenes.  Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson are fabulous in the acting of the principal three characters, and the entire directing and producing team do an incredible job of bringing this action-packed plot to a close.  Loose ends are tied up sufficiently well, and the fact that we see main characters pass away in Parts 1 and 2 does the plot justice, as it makes the story all the more real and poignant.  Overall, this is a great closing movie to a fantastic series. Well done!

Overall Review: 5 stars out of 5
