Everything a summer blockbuster should be but rarely is - a whip-smart, slam-bang piece of entertainment where we deeply care about the fate of the central characters (and many subsidiary ones who return for their last bows).
The way this movie is headed it will be at least close to 90%!
It would be so awesome if Roger Ebertmgave the film 4 starts like he did the first 2

It's at a 96% right now, and a lot of critics who didn't like the last film or the entire series as a whole, have come out saying that this a spectacular finale to the entire series. And the average per review--8.6/10--has me even more certain that this film will be at a 92% at the least and a 97% at the highest. I can't wait for Friday. I was at Lincoln Center yesterday for the U.S. premiere and I got my books autographed by Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe. Last year, I had mines signed by Tom Felton in Part I's premiere. I'm gonna seal my book away in a vault because I know it will be worth a lot in the far future.

Ahh, you're so lucky!
I hope this movie stays in the 90s. I haven't liked a Harry Potter movie since Goblet, 6 years ago. It'd be amazing to actually end the series on such a high note.

Wow. You haven't liked a Harry Potter movie since Goblet yet you're hoping you like this? I'd have given up already.

I've liked 5, 6, and 7, but I don't like them as MUCH as I liked the first 4. I thought they were just average.

Oh geez, just read my original post. I seem to make it very clear that I didn't like the last three. :$

I can honestly say that I'm a bit surprised at all the great reviews it is getting. 60 positive and 2 negative at the time of this comment. And one of those two isn't even all that bad. Plus it is questionable that both should be allowed since they are from the same place. Don't get me wrong, certainly pleased by the warm reception it is getting. Can't wait to see it! Plenty of negative reviews yet to come I'm sure though too. *Looks at Armond White* Other things I'm excited about are the two big trailers that will be on it. Sherlock Holmes 2 and of course The Dark Knight Rises (which is most likely only going to be on the digital copies of the movie).

Whether it was greed-based or not, splitting the film into two parts was the right decision to give the book the adaptation it deserved. When I first read the book four years ago, I was saying to myself "There's no way this can be a 2 and a half hour movie." In Deathly Hallows, every little detail counts, so I'm extremely glad WB decided to do it this way. Based on this review, this guy ate his words.

This guy didn't even like part 1. btw, I would not want to see Harry end up with Hermione. Most of us are glad it is Ron and Hermione; this guy is wrong about that.
