|Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2|
For 10 years i have been dreaming of becoming a wizard and study in Hogwarts but looks like some dreams are always just dreams. But J K Rowling's dream definitely did come true. She never ever thought that her imagination and fantasy thoughts during a train journey would become a world phenomenon and goes into breaking all the records, be it the books or the movies. I remember the day when i saw the trailer of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2, i knew it then that this movie is going to set all records. July 15, 11.50 am, PVR cinemas, Chennai, my dream came true.
I wanted to watch the first day first show of this last part of harry potter franchise and i did it. I got the tickets early morning with some of my friends' help. I expected a lot and i got more than what i expected. the movie was just awesome and fabulous.
With three Harry Potter films under his belt already, David Yates returns to direct Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and he does a brilliant directing job, on par with his previous movie in last year’s Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The central cast of Deathly Hallows: Part 2 such as Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, and Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort have all given their best performances so far in the series.
Rounding out the cast are Matthew Lewis as Neville Longbottom, Alan Rickman as Severus Snape, Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange, and Maggie Smith as Minerva McGonagall.
Overall, as in Deathly Hallows: Part 1, all the actors did their best in this movie. However, it was Ralph Fiennes and Alan Rickman who pushed above and beyond what they’d done in the previous films and turned in not only the best performances of the film, but also some of the best of the entire series.
The cinematography and visual effects in Deathly Hallows: Part 2 are definitely some of the best in the series. These two visual elements work together to pull the audience in and, during the climax it almost feels like the audience is right there in the battle with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The writing was also very good, particularly the dialogue for Voldemort which complimented Fiennes’ acting and brought attention to the villain’s brilliant complexity. Unsurprisingly, this film is easily the most emotional and serious movie in the Harry Potter series and members of the audience were in tears on several different occasions. Especially during Snape's death scene. The background score was also classic and the chorus were all heart throbing as if we were in the battle really.
Overall i rate it as a full 5 star with hardly any negative points and this stands equal to my favourite Harry Potter & the Prisoner Of Azkaban.
