Plot:

After seven earlier films reaching back a decade, the Harry Potter saga comes to a solid and satisfying conclusion in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." The finale conjures up enough awe and solemnity to serve as an appropriate finale and a dramatic contrast to the lighthearted (relative) innocence of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" all those magical years ago.
Harry, Hermione and Ron are grown up now, and Harry has even grown the facial stubble required of all epic  heroes. The time has come for him to face Lord Voldemort  in their final showdown, and their conflict is staged in a series of special effects sequences containing  power and conviction. I am still not sure what the bolts discharged by magic wands actually consist of, but never mind. 
They look wicked and lethal.  This final film is a reunion of sorts for a great many characters we've come to know over the years. So many distinguished British actors have played roles in the Potter films that make a recurrence in this movie; Bellatrix Lestrange, Rubeus Hagrid, Professor Dumbledore, Ollivander, Lucius Malfoy, Sirius Black, Severus Snape, Remus Lupin and even Prof. Minerva McGonagall, who is called upon to summon her powers and shield Hogwarts School from the powers of Voldemort.


Summary:

Hogwarts is home. And Harry returns to Hogwarts to seek the last Horcrux that contains Voldemort’s fragment of soul and destroy it. Turns out, Voldy is planning to attack the school if Harry doesn’t surrender himself. So, our sweet sweet professor Mc Gonagall  and other teachers lay out a whole sequence of magical security to help Harry buy some time until his job is done. The Weasleys, Lupin, Tonks all help the others in this war. And it is thought that Snape is Voldemort’s puppet! *Huge Spoiler Alert* WE LOVE YOU SNAPE!!! *sob*. Everyone is in their full essence in this movie. Those little actors fighting over the “Wingardium Leviosa” spell in the first movie are finally together. Neville is a true hero. Voldemort  gives us all the more reason to crack jokes about noses. And Harry, well he’s the chosen one. You have to see this EPIC FINALE for yourself to believe. And when you see it, everytime all those moments  from  the last 7 movies flash before your eyes.


Review:

How can I review this perfect film from a perfect franchise with perfect actors? Hmm, only one word:
MAGNIFICENT!


I love every moment of this film like a true Potterhead. This movie is true to the last book, just how I imagined it. And those moments with our beloved characters dying *sigh*, so heart wrenching. Even when Hogwarts was being destroyed in that cruel war between the death eaters and the ‘Harry Potter Army’ my heart ached for that building. Each stone turned to rubble made me wanna jump. I think it’s time I pay a visit to Warner Bros Studio in London.  Someone please take me there!  These kids we saw growing up as we grew up ourselves, they’ll always be our friends! Always! Another word that Potterheads  will understand for sure. So take some popcorn, chocolates and a tissue box and watch it from start till end (I love the ending scene just the same way it was in the book) .
Dare not miss this opportunity to bid farewell to your decade-old hero Harry, with a tear and a smile.


This movie is the BEST FINALE EVERRR so my rating for this movie is: 

*****
