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.

The grand finish, if not always inspired, feels necessary. In a sustained, imaginative way, this is the best of any movie series.

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.

It's a pleasant irony that, just as the first installments of Rowling's oeuvre were better suited to page than screen, the final installments have reversed the relationship.

When the movie was over, a young boy sitting behind me said, "That was great!" He was satisfied, and rightly so.

Not that part two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is bad, you understand; it's much better than I expected, given the mediocrity of the series in general and the fizzle of part one in particular.
July 15, 2011
The finale is a great British triumph, twice as good as its predecessor, highly recommended. A happy ending, as I think it's known.
July 14, 2011
This is the way The Harry Potter saga was meant to end.
July 14, 2011
Fasten your seat belts. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is an emotional roller-coaster ride.
July 14, 2011
The best possible end for the series that began a decade ago.

It is not often that we can chart a series over 10 years featuring the same child stars as they grow into adults. This phenomenon gives Deathly Hallows 2 a particular poignancy.
July 14, 2011
Watched as a stand-alone film it's likely to strike newcomers as completely mystifying, but committed and even semi-committed fans will surely welcome it as a worthy climax to the most successful film franchise in history.
July 14, 2011
I can merely pay illiterate, honest homage to the costumes, special effects and set designs, which are all fantastic. And to the actors, hamming and over-egging as if it is All Day Breakfast season on Mount Thespis.
July 14, 2011
The final film has been labeled the 'epic conclusion' and I was elated to discover that it didn't disappoint.
July 14, 2011
This is a terrific, smartly designed adolescent adventure, visually rich, narratively satisfying, and bound to resonate for years to come.
July 14, 2011
Deathly Hallows Part 2 sends Harry off into the pop culture pantheon on a thrilling high note. Well played. Well played indeed.
July 14, 2011
Considering that it began with genial formula of spell-casting and flying broomsticks, the phantasmagorical imagery and violence in the eighth installment is fairly adult.
