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

CULT – 1

 

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

 


PROS –
1) The epic saga comes to an end with the death of Lord Voldemort after the destruction of all the six Horcruxes. Harry himself being the 7th Horcrux was a major revelation.
2) Epic moments: The shyest character of this epic saga, Neville Longbottom, decapitating Nagini (the 6th Horcrux) with the Sword of Gryffindor; Minerva McGonagall‘s duel with Snape to save Hogwarts; Harry, Ron, and Hermione quest to the Bellatrix Lestrange’s vault at Gringotts bank to retrieve Helga Hufflepuff‘s cup (the 4th Horcrux).
3) The Tale of the Three Brothers – This story remains the crux of the saga. The 3 Deathly Hallows defined the destiny of Voldemort, Snape, and Harry.
4) Hedwig’s Theme – Not playing this theme in the end credits would’ve been a disappointment.

 

 

CONS –
1) The uneventful death of Severus Snape. This major character died without any major fight.
2) The epilogue was quite unnecessary and also depressing up to an extent.

Dumbledore: After all this time?
Snape: Always.

CULT – 0

 

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 

 

PROS –
1) The young trio is running from the Death Eaters without any mentor while Voldemort is busy securing the Elder Wand.
2) Dobby giving the ultimate sacrifice while saving Harry, Ron, and Hermione along with Luna, Ollivander, and Griphook.
3) “The Tale of the Three Brothers”
4) Ron, Harry, and Hermione quest to Ministry of Magic, disguising themselves as Ministry employees to steal the locket from Dolores Umbridge.

 

 


CONS –
1) The lighting is so dark that it’ll give audiences a headache to watch it. The colour themes are so dark even Tim Burton wouldn’t dare to watch it.
2) The screenplay is boring and half of the time we see a despaired Harry and Hermione in the wilderness.

Dobby the House Elf: Dobby has no master. Dobby is a free elf, and Dobby has come to save Harry Potter and his friends!

CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) Rick Moranis as Dark Helmet, one of his funniest roles. His unusually giant helmet itself is the biggest source of laughter.
2) In many ways, it’s more entertaining than the original Star-Wars movie. Barf, based on Chewbacca, is doing a better job than Chewbacca did in Star Wars.

 
CONS –
N/A
