Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011): Halloween Review


The grand finale of the Harry Potter series is one to remember. After spending nearly a decade at Hogwarts, audiences everywhere had to say goodbye to the world that many of them grew up with. While it has its flaws, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” is an action-packed, spectacle-filled, satisfying ending to the series.

The final film in the Harry Potter series covers the final showdown between Harry and Voldemort as good and evil struggle for control over the Wizarding World. Aptly named “The Battle of Hogwarts,” the conflict of this film wraps up the series’s plot while also providing satisfying endings for every character.

Unlike “Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” this film is probably the most rewatchable in the series. It would benefit the viewer to watch both movies back to back, but Part 2 can be watched alone, unlike Part 1. Check out our review of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” to see what we mean:

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” is everything that fans could want from the Harry Potter Finale. It’s overwhelmingly satisfying, almost to a fault, and it has the epic wizard action that everyone was waiting for.

So what do I mean by this film is satisfying to a fault? Well, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” ends the series in a fan-fiction manner, meaning the ending is not all that shocking or bold, but it’s exactly what fans expected. This does not mean it’s a bad ending; it just means more creativity could have been brought into the finale.

Overall, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” is a fantastic ending to the series. It may be predictable at parts, but it’s a satisfying conclusion to one of the most ambitious film series of all time.
