Critic Reviews for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

All Critics (328) | Top Critics (57) | Fresh (315) | Rotten (13)

  • The final instalment, Deathly Hallows Part 2, is a bravura duel between good and evil. It's also a cathartic, occasionally clunky nostalgiafest.

  • For 10 years and eight films we've gotten to watch these young actors grow as people, as performers and as characters. It has been a true coming-of-age saga, in the fullest and most moving sense of the term.

    Nov 18, 2014 | Rating: 4/5
  • The grand finish, if not always inspired, feels necessary. In a sustained, imaginative way, this is the best of any movie series.

    Nov 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/5
  • Fiennes and Rickman get the actorly moments they've been building toward for so long, and the film is most fun when it sticks to mechanics: roller coaster rides, battle scenes, close calls.

  • For a grand finale to a truly epic, good-natured franchise, this is a perfect goodbye that's very hard to beat.

  • In the 10 years since Harry's first big- screen close-up, the spell has never been broken. And we Muggles have been made better for the magic.

Audience Reviews for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

  • Jun 24, 2017
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part 2: This movie is in my Top 10 movies of all time. For me it goes along with Alien, Pulp Fiction, The Dark Knight, and Rosemary's Baby. Though I'm sure many people would disagree with me this movie in my opinion will be a classic in the future. This epic franchise ends on a more than satisfying note and delivers on every level. The action is amazing, the story is amazing, the directing is amazing. This is a gold standard for all action/fantasy movies going forward.

    To me, the perfect conclusion to a franchise ties up everything that was promised while leaving the audience with an emotionally satisfying ending that leaves the door open for something later. The Deathly Hallows Part 2 checked off just about everything I could have asked for. We begin part 2 still in search of the Horcruxes as well as finding Voldemort's army at its strongest. I think what's most impressive about this particular installment is that it manages to pull off the "all pay-off" type of story that most part 2's have struggled with. Both, The Hunger Games and Hobbit series' have had a rough time closing out their series' with a film that feels whole in itself. Sure, you can't really have the full experience without at least watching Part 1, but there's no part of me that thinks this story could have been pulled off in one film. Even with all of the cameos and reappearances of beloved characters, there's plenty of new ones as well. Ciaran Hinds' Abeforth Dumbledore for one, Helena Ravenclaw, a nearly-blind Dragon from Gringott's, and oh yeah those kids at the end. J.K. Rowling has a knack for giving everyone a chance to shine, and there's no difference in Part 2. Seriously, I never would have thought Neville would be the one to kill Voldemort's snake, Nagini, but that's why it was so brilliant. This is also the film in which all was revealed about Snape and his allegiance to Harry after all. The first time I watched this entire sequence, it absolutely broke me. To watch a guy so hopelessly in love with someone he can never have, and then look after her son even though he despises the very presence of him, is so beautiful and tragic at the same time. It's something only the likes of J.K. Rowling could handle with such grace. Harry himself goes through perhaps his biggest character arc since the middle of the franchise as he's forced to come to grips with the fact that he is the 7th horcrux after all. Even though we ultimately knew he was going to have that showdown with Voldemort at Hogwarts, but his goodbyes to Ron and Hermione, and ultimately his discussion with The Order in the Forest, were some of the most touching scenes the franchise has given us. This also gave us one final scene with Michael Gambon as Dumbledore's spirit, so to speak. Of course, I'm a bigger fan of Richard Harris' work as the great wizard, but Gambon's spin on the character definitely grew on me. Especially when watching them all back to back. Everything about this film is epic in scale and emotion. Even if you know when certain things are going to happen, they are written and presented in a way that's undeniably satisfying. I know some think the "19 years later" scene is hokey, but for me it's the perfect culmination of everything that the series has brought thus far. Harry finally got to experience King's Cross Station with his family, and he honored Snape and Dumbledore with his son's name. It's just perfect. After re-watching the 8 films within days of each other, I can say that this without a doubt in the top 5 of my favorite film franchises of all time. And The Deathly Hallows ended it with a bang. +Everyone gets a chance to shine +Battle for Hogwarts +Snape reveals +The ultimate sacrifice +19 Years Later 10/10

    This is the best way to end such a thrilling franchise. Harry Potter doesn't get better than this.

    The conclusion to a ten year epic, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 is not only suitably action-packed, but also an incredibly emotional and almost tear jerking conclusion to one of the greatest movie series' ever.
