It's a bittersweet end as the final adaptation of the beloved books hits the big screen. Expect tears, both from nostalgia and some truly amazing storytelling.

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.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 is a fine finish to a franchise that most, including myself, wish would never end.
November 18, 2014
It comes to an end with class, dignity and a fair amount of relief on the part of yours truly.

Goodbye, Harry. You certainly know how to make an exit.

The most enduring aspect of the Harry Potter films, and the reason this one works, is the acting of its three young leads.
November 18, 2014
It unspools like gangbusters.

It certainly went out making its presence felt, but in my opinion, though there were explosions aplenty, a few deaths, and everyone inevitably ended up with who they should, I felt it ended with more of a fizz than a bang.

The grand finish, if not always inspired, feels necessary. In a sustained, imaginative way, this is the best of any movie series.
November 18, 2014
The film is strong enough to have the unusual effect of improving its predecessors in the memory simply by association.
November 18, 2014
Sadly, though, the finale isn't the spectacle the series really deserves, and I feel fans will gloss over the film's dull points and poor direction in favour of facing the reality that 'the Deathly Hallows Part 2' is an average affair.

Deathly Hallows -- Part 2 lives up to the standard set by its predecessors, remaining true to their spirit while also delivering an epic battle royal between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).
November 18, 2014
As to the three principals, they've grown up with the Potter saga and have done so reasonably gracefully.
November 18, 2014
When the time comes to face Harry's fate, Radcliffe confidently, casually shows how much he's matured as an actor.
November 18, 2014
I must confess to being completely unmoved by the Harry Potter phenomenon. The books strike me as derivative and bland, and the film versions are, if anything, even worse.

When Yates gets it right, Deathly Hallows: Part Two roars with majestic otherworldly oomph.
November 18, 2014
I for one am glad to see Harry Potter come to a close. It was one of the most reliable film franchises ever to go beyond a trilogy, even at its spottiest, and I imagine that an entire generation will look back on it with fond memories.

Yates strikes a beautiful harmony to make the most of the storytelling and the technology.
November 19, 2013
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.

The seven films to date have earned almost a billion dollars each, so it's obvious their followers are legion. But this is also a series that takes itself seriously, never more so than in this, the deathly finale.
