Spotlight: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part Two (Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman)

I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two four time in the past week, so I think its about time for a review. Also I have two new interviews to do as well, they should be up in a few days. I should be posting more regularly but I've been quite busy. Here is my review!

The second part of the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was directed by David Yates, who has directed the series since Order of the Phoenix, and was produced by David Heyman, David Barron, J. K. Rowling. It was also distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. As always the main characters are as follows. Like the X-Men: First Class review I’m going to make a list of the characters and who they are played by, it just makes it less clunky and more presentable. Here they are alphabetically to reduce popularity contest:

Aberforth Dumbledore – CiarĂ¡n Hinds (Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, The Rite, Ca$h)
Albus Dumbledore – Michael Gambon (The King’s Speech, The Book of Eli, Amazing Grace)
Bellatrix Lestrange – Helena Bonham Carter (Lady Jan, A Room with a View, Fight Club, The Wings of the Dove, The King’s Speech)
Draco Malfoy – Tom Felton (The Disappeared, White Other, Get Him to the Greek, 13Hrs)
Filius Flitwick – Warwick Davis (Leprechaun, Star Wars, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Prince Caspian)
Ginny Weasley – Bonnie Wright (Stranded, Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures)
Gregory Goyle -
Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe (December Boys)
Helena Ravenclaw – Kelly Macdonald (Nany McPhee, Gosford Park, Intermission, No Country for Old Men
Hermione Granger - Emma Watson (Ballet Shoes, The Tale of Despereaux, My Week With Marilyn)

Lucious Malfoy – Jason Isaacs (The Patriot, Brotherhood, Black Hawk Down, Nine Lives)

Ollivander the wand maker – John Hurt (V for Vendetta, Alien, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull)
Remus Lupin – David Thewlis (Naked, The Omen, Veronika Decides to Die, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)
Ron Weasley - Rupert Grint (Thunderpants, Driving Lessons, Cherrybomb, Wild Target)
Rubeus Hagrid – (Gooby, The Brothers Bloom, Rovoked, Van Helsing)
Severus Snape – Alan Rickman (Die Hard, Dogma, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Sense and Sensibility, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Raspution: Dark Servant of Destiny)
Sirius Black – (JFK, Dracula, Batman, Book of Eli, Red Ridinghood)

I know I have skipped the summary of this movie but I really would rather not spoil it for you. This movie was, unlike the conclusion of Transformers, a very good ending to an extraordinary series. I must say in all of my favourite series, Harry Potter is up there behind Lord Of The Rings and Star Wars. The acting was amazing and I believe that as the series progressed, all the actors grew amazing chemistry and it shows in the end product. As all of the Harry Potter movies, Death Hallows Part Two has a bit of everything, from comedic to action to dramatic scenes. Everything that happened in the movie flowed well together and it made for a very amazing film. For not reading the book, I believe that this movie is a good conclusion to the series. It captured all the moments that needed to be captured well. The only worth being negative about was, is the epilogue and the horribly done aging effects. Other than that the movie is excellent. This movie is a five out of five and it is rightfully needed as it is quite the conclusion to a very epic series.
