As a diehard Potter fanboy, one would expect that I would instantly decry this movie for it's less than faithful translation from the novel.
But this movie was so very good, it warranted every change.
The movie kept to it's summer blockbuster action roots, but some how managed to fit a great deal of character development, and even humor into this 2 and a half hour movie.
And while the creators certainly took some liberties with the script, it was all done in the interest of streamlining the plot, and it was quite effective in doing so.
