Harry Potter has enthralled us for 11 years.  We have watched the young Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), and Hermoine Granger (Emma Watson) grow up at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

What a wonderful journey we’ve been on!  The success of the books and movies is an indication of how much people love good versus evil and the empowerment of our young men and women in a world of adversarial situations.

When I read a book I really enjoy, reaching the last page nearly breaks my heart.  I don’t want my friendship with the characters to end!  This is how I’ve felt about the Harry Potter series.

I completely enjoyed this movie.  It was well-done, exciting, and a great end to a long and enjoyable journey.  Kudos to J.K. Rowling for envisioning this from the start and to David Yates for remaining true to the feeling of the books.

We all know that we can’t keep everything in the books in a movie, but how annoying is it when the butchering of a novel for a movie takes away from the main story of the book?  Very.  This was never done with HP.  It wasn’t done here, either.

This is what I call the “Tie-it-up” movie.  It’s sooo necessary because we have a lot of questions!

We find out the following:  (I don’t believe in spoilers, so these are teaser lines.  Up to you if you want to read this part!!)

  • Where does Snape’s loyalty really lie?
  • Where are the remaining horcruxes?
  • To whom does the blue eye in the mirror shard belong?
  • How will the war be won?
  • Which Hogwart’s student really steps it up?
  • What happens to the Hallows?
  • What happens next?
I loved it.  It was a perfect ending to a wonderful series.
Five stars out of Five.
