After letting the awesomeness sink in, I am finally able to review Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
This was definitely the best Harry Potter movie yet (As well as book). I recommend this to anyone who likes awesomeness, action, and magic, however, if you despise all these things and like things more along the lines of boringness, then you best stay away from this film.
Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived, will risk it all to find and destroy all of Voldemort’s horcruxes, thus vulnerizing ( to be vulnerable) He who must not be named. After one of his dear friends dies, he, along with his partners Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, head into Gringott’s Wizarding Bank. To get in they make a deal with a goblin which turns out to backfire on him. Escaping the bank turns out to be even harder then getting in, as they have to fight off, and then ride off on, a dragon. They now had another horcrux, Hufflepuff’s cup. Soon after getting off the dragon they head to Hogsmeade, where they find Dumbledore’s brother, Aberforth. Through Aberforth’s house they are able to use a secret entrance into the room of requirement, where they find Dumbledore’s army led by Neville.
After catching up with their friends, they soon split up to find the last horcrux, which they believe tobe Ravenclaw’s lost diadem. To find it, Harry talks to the ghost of Rowena Ravenclaw’s daughter, the grey lady. After being yelled at she finally tells him it is in the place where all is hidden, and that if he knows now he will never need to ask, but if he doesn’t know he will never. Harry, being as clever as he is, heads to the room of requirement.
Meanwhile, Ron and Hermione head to the Chamber of Secrets where they believe they will find a basilisk fang with venom that can destroy horcruxes. Since the Chamber can only be opened by a parsel mouth, Ron opens it with an attempt at the snake language, claiming Harry talks in his sleep. After retreving it, they are attacked by Nagini, Voldemort’s snake. After a battle to stay alive Neville kills the snake, allowing Hermione to stab the cup. During this time, there is a huge battle which is later joined by many deaths. Harry, knowing that Voldemort will only stop when he is dead goes into the forbidden forest to sacrifice himself. Then after being “killed” by Voldemort, he is taken into Limbo where he has an inspiring conversation with Albus Dumbledore himself. When Harry awakes from this trancelike state he immediately runs after being released by Hagrid, who was carrying him. After another intense battlebetween Harry, Draco Crabbe and another unnamed slytherin, in which Crabbe is accidentaly killed by his own spell, Harry retrieves the diadem and takes it back to be destroyed. Then Harry and Voldemort, after a long Priori Incantatem, rinally end the battle, with Harry as the Champion.
There is one thing that I would like to point out that disappointed me. There was an absence of a Giant who is a half-brother to a half-giant named Hagrid. Yes Grawp was not in the movie. this irritated me because that was the whole reason he was in the 5th book.
Now it is time for awards.
For funniest line in the movie, the award goes to Ronald Weasley for the “Harry talks in his sleep” line.
For most inspiring words in the movie, the award goes to Albus Percival Wolfric Brian Dumbledore for the “just because it is in your head, doesn’t mean none of this is real” acompanied by a wink.
And ,finally, for most reckless thing through the entire movie, Harry Potter for throwing away the Elder wand. Seriously, at the end he just snapped in in half, then through one end towards the castle, and the other into the black lake. Not even a thought in his mind like “Hmmm… this belonged to Dumbledore, I wonder if Aberforth might want this to remember hi by. Granted, there wasn’t a thought like “I have all the Deathly Hallows now I can be the master of death.” but still. Plus he could have hit someone. Imagine your Neville, just walking around the Hogwarts courtyards and out of nowhere, half a wand hits you in the back of the head and you fall down onto the concrete, hit your head, break your nose, and have to go to the hospital for the rest of your life because it put you into a coma.
So that’s my bright and exciting review.
