Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) search for Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes') remaining Horcruxes in their effort to destroy the Dark Lord as the final battle rages on at Hogwarts.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) continue their quest of finding and destroying Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes') three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered, and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins, and life as they know it will never be the same again.Written by
(At around thirty-seven minutes) The fight between Professor McGonagall (Dame Maggie Smith) and Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) was considered to be changed into Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) against Snape instead. The idea was scrapped by J.K. Rowling, who insisted that the duel should involve the same characters as in the novel, as she saw it as a key moment for McGonagall. See more »
(at around 54 mins) Just as the bridge collapses under Neville, it looks like he throws his wand forward, but he is just flailing as he begins to fall with the bridge collapsing underneath him. When he later pulls himself up he first tosses the wand onto the floor of the bridge. He never threw his wand away, understandable as he is in the midst of a battle, and this is confirmed by the reverse shot looking towards his startled friends where no wand is visible on the remaining deck of the bridge.

It's beautiful here.
It was our aunt's. We used to come here as kids. The order uses it now as a safe house. What's left of us at least.

Muggles think these keep away evil, but they're wrong.
I need to talk to the goblin.

A flashback to the final scene of the previous film, in which Voldemort steals the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's tomb, is shown even before the Warner Bros. shield. See more »
The Amazon Prime release of the film presented it's aspect ratio at 1.78:1. While most of this version is a mix of open matte and pan and scan, there are several shots that are opened up (particularly outdoor shots) with no cropping visible. See more »
Endings are usually the problems of most movie series. They usually end up being mediocre & unsatisfying or they are made to cash in people. The great thing about Harry Potter movies, the filmmakers are taking their job seriously. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a great ending of the series. It's more than throwing a lot of action and exposition. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is one of those conclusion that actually care about the series.
Deathly Hallows part 1 is just the first and the half of the second act of the story. Deathly Hallows part 2 begins straight forward to its continuation of the last Harry Potter film. And of course, if you haven't seen Deathly Hallows Part 1 or any of the Harry Potter movies, you'll be confused to death. Obvious isn't it? It's pretty clever to make the whole Deathly Hallows story like a slow burn. It started from silent thrills, plans, and escapes to big and loud battles.
The series doesn't only end with big and loud action. It also gives us some nostalgia from the old Harry Potter films. And we still get to see more of the characters. The movie itself is pretty exciting. It's a good choice to let David Yates direct the rest of the Potter films because he made this series darker and bolder. Aside from that the film still has its compelling moments like the Prince's Tale scene.
No need to tell about the performances of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and the rest of the cast because they are obviously good to their characters but there is one actor here is worth mention and that is Alan Rickman. We already knew him as Snape but there is one scene where we see more of his character and his performance was excellent. The filmmaking, the special effects is obviously good. The music score really made the battle scenes epic and perfect for a final film.
For me it's really hard to write a review about Harry Potter. Is it because I never read the books or I'm not really a huge fan but in my opinion Harry Potter is a successful series. If I rank all the movie conclusions, this could be number three because nothing beats Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. Either you're a fan or not, you'll love this series. And yes, this is another remarkable movie series.
