You have found my humble review, and for those who decide to read my views I appreciate it, as I’m sure that whatever I have to say will have little bearing on whether you actually go and see this film. We all know you will. Besides there are a million more reviews of this film anyway.

A word of warning, if you have not seen part one of this two part endeavour, or it is not relatively fresh in your mind, I urge you to do so. This film picks up right where the last finished and you will be feeling a little lost if you go in cold.

In fifteen words;

A little rushed at points, spectacular at others. Subplot weaknesses. Veteran actors are superb. Heartfelt.

This film contained all of the action missing from part one, and yet I still think part one was better. It was more artistic, the cinematography was far superior and it conveyed a real feeling of mood. I was left yearning for the sparkle, the magic that was present in The Prisoner of Azkaban was enchanting, not the case in The Deathly Hallows Part 2. There’s no discovery, or learning of magic. More a case of ‘We know spells… Crucio.’ (I know it’s a curse and not necessarily a spell!) Perhaps the magical mojo was there and I have lost the desire to feel it. Either way I am privileged to have grown up alongside this story and its characters. For this reason there is no doubt that this film is a fitting and grand end to the Potter franchise. I did enjoy it, and I’m sure you will too. All in all, ‘Mischief Managed’.
