Being the last time Harry truly got to enjoy a year at school before it all took a turn for the worst, I was surprised by how little school there was in it. I also thought that this was a worse adaptation than Prisoner, as they decide to leave out a very important ending, that practically cemented the philosophy of neither side being truly good. When the film came to a close on that incredibly up beat ending I wanted to find Newell and explain to him why the ending is so important. However, all those problems I have are taken back by the shear perfect directing. The style in this film is such a good balance between fun and dark that it creates its own. The story took Rowling 600 pages to explain, yet the film still manages to establish all the main details. The actors have once again improved, and the characters themselves now all have understandable and relatable motives. The mystery is excellent, the effects are wonderful, and the stakes have risen to new heights. A wonderful film, for a wonderful book.
