As far as spectacle goes, this final chapter of the Harry Potter franchise has plenty of it with showy special effects and a rich and alluring density that once again overshadows the narrative

A pyrotechnic wonder, a superb feast of visuals, innovative design and fabulous camerawork. And the eager fans cheered and clapped at the Sydney premiere, even if I didn't

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

There's visual overstatement, stone-heavy exposition, self-seriousness (masquerading as maturity), CGI-laden plot (falling short of spectacle), and predictable action sequences.

[It] bungles key moments that have built-in dramatic weight from the book with ordinary staging and a breakneck pace. Many of the movies, including this one, have merely summarized the books rather than actually interpreting them.

Epic battle? Please. Director David Yates moves at only two speeds: Super-charged yet not impactful and labored, faux-majestic stillness.

There are moments of wit, fear, imagination and grace that one remembers over the years, but they are scattered among the long drawn-out, meandering narrative.

130-minutes of unfocused, supernatural-themed sludge.

Now that the Harry Potter series is over, maybe the truth can be realized: This has been the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises.

Deathly Hallows Part 2's most evocative moments generally have him thinking about death, not just his own, but also others'.

It's a fight to the death, as good and evil whip out their wands and cross swords amid the ruins of what used to be the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Part 2 ends up being a worthy note for this decade-long franchise to go out on with a satisfying conclusion to bid farewell to these enduring characters.

Thankfully, Yates gives us one wonderful final voyage with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, a smashing, melancholy, and thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the eight-film saga.

An emotional, have-a-hanky-handy experience for many viewers as characters they've come to know, love and care about make their collective exit.

You need a deep grounding in Potter-lore to make the slightest bit of sense out of it, but that won't be a problem for most people who see this film.
