HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: Part 2 (2011): What did you think?

Ralph Fiennes, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, 2011

Now that you have seen it, what did you think of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Did you stick with the series for ten years, eight movies, and seven books? Have you read the books? What was your favorite moment from the Harry Potter films? Harry Potter’s theatrical structure, splitting the final edition into separate films, is a structure currently being adopted by many book adaptations coming to theaters in the next few years, most notably The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and The Hunger Games. Did it bother you that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was split into two parts or did it make the film even better?

Some of you probably do not care about the split and see the ending of the Harry Potter franchise as a bittersweet or even a sad moment. Sami Jarroush, the goof, is actually crying about the series ending at the beginning of this video.

Did Harry Potter live up to your expectations? It lived up to box office expectations and actually exceeded them.

It has been confirmed by THR/indieWIRE that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has broken the highest opening weekend record set by The Dark Knight with a total of $168.55 million this weekend. The previous total set by TDK was $158.4M back in 2008 (full chart), but WB is again going to smash through both of these records next year when The Dark Knight Rises hits on July 20th, 2012, I’m pretty sure of that. Deathly Hallows: Part 2, as expected with record breaking theater counts, also earned the most money at midnight out of any release at $43.5M.

Disregarding the numbers, was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 a satisfying film series ending like The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King or was it lackluster?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 starred Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert GrintTom Felton, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Michael Gambon, Jason Isaacs, Alan Rickman, David Thewlis, Julie Walters, Bonnie Wright, and Kelly MacDonald.

    I found it disappointing. It could be because it was split into two parts, but the second part lacked any emanational attachment to the characters. Details were taken out completely, and Belatrix’s and Voldemort’s deaths were anti-climatic, the whole movie was nearly anti-climatic. The bests parts were Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith’s parts. The kiss worked I suppose. Overall it was a disappointing ending to the franchise. Worst movie of the franchise.

  • Sad to hear but the film was massively profitable. People say the last two films were the best in the series, so much so that I actually want to start watching the series.

    I’m a huge fan of the books, and the movies will always fall short of recreating the magic present in them. That said, Deathly Hallows was a good effort. I liked it being split into two – there was no way a plotline that big could be explored and conveyed in one film. Unless they made it super long like the Titanic (which I didn’t mind). This wasn’t the worst movie of the franchise, nor was it the most anti climatic. Most anti climatic would have to be Half Blood Prince – the scene where the Death Eaters invaded Hogwarts.

  • I have heard people are either for or against this film. People that have read the books seem to be split more than people that have not read the books.
