The cast of the Harry Potter films just spent the past decade dedicated to bringing J.K. Rowling-s books to the big screen. Now we-ve reached the long awaited conclusion. Expectations are the highest they-ve ever been, and despite a few weak moments in past installments, this last chapter exceeds all of them.
Deathly Hallows part 2 is full of shadows and gloom, a long road from the light-hearted beginnings of the 11-year-old Harry we met in Sorcerer-s Stone. Like the characters, the movies have matured. Fans of the series need no explanations, and for everyone else I don-t want to reveal any spoilers, the appeal of part 2 is its tying up of the loose ends unraveled in the past 7 movies. Harry, Ron and Hermione are grown-up and finally face the epic evil head-on; there are some casualties, not all of them human. It-s safe to assume fans will find in Deathly Hallows part 2 everything they-re hoping to see brought to a head.
The final film does a fantastic job making the long awaited show-down believable, tragic and heroic. Harry Potter may have seemed like just another franchise in the beginning, but has grown into something more. I don-t think it-s a stretch to say they will be watched for many more years.
