The final film is in large parts stunning - the action sequences are pretty spectacular, but what I love most about the Potter movies is the look and feel - what I liked especially about this one, being a second part, was that there was so little time wasted in getting us back into the story - pretty much straight away we were rolling, and after seven movies it felt familiar and comfortable, even cosy.
I'll admit now, I've not read the books (it's on my ever growing to do list - I do own them now), so I had no idea going into this movie how it all ends and although I can't say I was shocked or surprised, I was satisfied with how things were tied up - how all the characters came into their own showing they all had journeys, not just that Potter lad. If I was disappointed with anything, and this is a bit of a stretch, I guess it was with how Draco turned out - he really became quite the wet blanket as the stories progressed when in the early years he showed so much evil promise, he seemed to be the only character to shuffle their way out at the end rather than fighting - I'm not sure I fully understood the true point of his story and hope the books can shed some light on that for me.
So as I sit here, humming that incredible score that has accompanied the film since the first scene (I think...), I applaud all that Harry Potter has become, I still sit amazed at the true dedication of the fans, especially those that camped out in Trafalger Square - total G33k respect for that - and finally I'd like to thank JK Rowling - because she was the one that insisted these films remain British, filmed in Britain with a British cast and I don't think she's got enough kudos for that, and that the films have given us a unique cast that carried on through all the films giving us a continuity that is pretty precious in film today - I hope over the years this feat alone is recognised, to have watched the three main cast members grow up on screen I don't think will ever be repeated in such a way.
Harry Potter, may you go on entertaining folk through the books and films for many generations to come
(but FYI IMHO Harry Dresden is the better wizard hehe)
