In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort. It all ends here.
The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is the film all Harry Potter fans have waited 10 years to see, and the good news is that it's worth the hype--visually stunning, action packed, faithful to the book, and mature not just in its themes and emotion but in the acting by its cast, some of whom had spent half their lives making Harry Potter movies. Part 2 cuts right to the chase: Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) has stolen the Elder Wand, one of the three objects required to give someone power over death (a.k.a. the Deathly Hallows), with the intent to hunt and kill Harry. Meanwhile, Harry's quest to destroy the rest of the Horcruxes (each containing a bit of Voldemort's soul) leads him first to a thrilling (and hilarious--love that Polyjuice Potion!) trip to Gringotts Bank, then back to Hogwarts, where a spectacular battle pitting the young students and professors (a showcase of the British thesps who have stolen every scene of the series: Maggie Smith's McGonagall, Jim Broadbent's Slughorn, David Thewlis's Lupin) against a dark army of Dementors, ogres, and Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter, with far less crazy eyes to make this round). As predicted all throughout the saga, Harry also has his final showdown with Voldemort--neither can live while the other survives--though the physics of that predicament might need a set of crib notes to explain. But while each installment has become progressively grimmer, this finale is the most balanced between light and dark (the dark is quite dark--several familiar characters die, with one significant death particularly grisly); the humor is sprinkled in at the most welcome times, thanks to the deft adaptation by Steve Kloves (who scribed all but one of the films from J.K. Rowling's books) and direction by four-time Potter director David Yates. The climactic kiss between Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), capping off a decade of romantic tension, is perfectly tuned to their idiosyncratic relationship, and Daniel Radcliffe has, over the last decade, certainly proven he was the right kid for the job all along. As Prof. Snape, the most perfect of casting choices in the best-cast franchise of all time, Alan Rickman breaks your heart. Only the epilogue (and the lack of chemistry between Harry and love Ginny Weasley, barely present here) stand a little shaky, but no matter: the most lucrative franchise in movie history to date has just reached its conclusion, and it's done so without losing its soul. --Ellen A.

Money, money, money!!!
I have purchased Warner Bros movies in the past with a digital copy and have been happy with them. I like being able to watch the movie from iTunes on AppleTV. With this junk they are trying to pass as a digital copy, you must have a Flixster app or some adobe software on you computer to view the downloaded movie. What a waste. I feel like I got ripped off by some scam artist, I guess I was, it was Warner Bros. To view the digital copy I am forced to give out more personal information to another company and then to click a release giving Flixster the rights to use any information about my viewing habit to whom ever they feel like selling the information to. I paid for this privilege?
Shame on you Warner Bros, you need to have some respect for your customers and put the real digital copy back, not this fake.
Update: After seeing another post, I emailed Flixster support asking for an iTunes store compatible redemption code. The response was very quick and I did receive a code to download an iOS compatible version of this movie.
While I am not happy that I had to go to these lengths to receive what I had expected at the time of purchase, I am pleased and impressed that Flixster and their customer service was able to solve this issue. Thank you.
I am upping my rating to 4 stars. The movie is excellent, I am only reducing it for the digital copy issues.
The final chapter of the Harry Potter series is here. The film was well done, relaying the dark tone of the story. I first saw this movie on Bluray in 2D.
After my 3 year son threw one of his toys into my flat-screen TV (lucky for him I was not a witness to his tantrum and destruction of a HDTV I paid nearly $4000 for.)
This lead to me having a good excuse to buy the latest tech. Now kitted out with a 70" 3D compatible HDTV and 3D Bluray I was able to experience a format that I has dismissed as a fad. I had a few titles already in 3D and to my great surprise the 3D effects of Active Shutter 3D glasses were astounding rivaling the 3D features at Disneyland's Kodak Theatre (Captain Eo, and Honey I shrunk the audience.)
I got my hands on Harry Potter 7 parts 1 & 2 anticipating breathtaking 3D effects, boy was I sorely disappointed. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one was so poorly 3D encoded that I had to check my glasses to make sure they were charged, checked the TV to make sure it was in 3D mode. That was how poor the 3D effects were. It is no wonder Part 1 was never released in the theater in 3D. I thought "This must just be a poor quality 2D to 3D conversion after the film was completed. Now I figured "They had to have filmed part 2 with 3D cameras, they had to." I was wrong, save a few gags (e.g. the floating plate Professor Snape's tears are poured into to show Harry Professor Snape's memories and Voldemort's snake striking out) and even those were very poor. There is nothing to be gained in purchasing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 3D. The quality of the 2D transfers from film to Bluray are excellent. Unless you can find the 3D for the same price, save your money, buy the 2D set.
And those who are taking shots at this movie and giving it 1 star because of it having a Ultraviolet code, enough already. Just the fact that Warner Bros. has chosen to support the Ultraviolet streaming service, yes it's a streaming service not a digital copy, does not warrant 1 star reviews. WB has been issuing iTunes codes and in some cases Plays for sure discs when asked. I have gotten iTunes codes for every Bluray and DVD that had a redemption code for the UV streaming service. Many people may look to buy a copy of this film, see the sub 3 star rating, and not purchase this excellent film. Save you 1 star ratings for films like The Wicker Man or Ishtar. Unfortunately UV may be here to stay, be happy that most DVD and Bluray sets include both UV and regular digital copies. Enough trolling.
