It lived up to my expectations, but I also have to admit it didn't quite surpass them.
The 3D effects and action-oriented nature of the film are rather outstanding, the plot's solid, the characters are all likable (or dislike-able) in their own ways, each with established background stories, and the storyline itself is fantastic.
While many have named this the best film of the series, however, I'm somewhat inclined to disagree. Harry Potter's what the story's all about, I know, but in the later installments especially, some of the characters whom would have been considered "main" became "minor" ones by the end. Also, the film had a slight "scene-jumping" problem.
Nonetheless, it's still a very excellent movie, and the peek into Professor Snape's past coupled with the film's ending scenes are more than enough to grip a person's undivided attention in a very good way.
