Bang For The Buck
Pros:The acting was very believable. I liked that it was offered in 3D and 2D.
Cons:The 3D wasnt anything special not as good as IMAX.
The Bottom Line: My final recommendation is that you should go see this movie no matter what, even if you aren't a fan of Harry Potter orriginally.
While part one totally thrilled me part two blew me away! I've read each book in the series twelve times at least, and I can say that with some certainty the movie followed the book very well. There were as with all movies following books some small changes but that is bound to happen, and didn't change the quality of the film for even a diehard fan like myself. This isn't a movie I would only recommend to fan either, and I could argue that part two could stand alone. So if you're a Harry Potter virgin don't let the fact that its the 8th edition in a series scare you away. I am really sad that its really the end of all Harry Potter. There were some parts that strayed away from the book, like the part where Nevile Longbottom admitted he had a crush on Luna Lovegood, that was never talked about in the book although it was a welcome addition that lots of the Harry Potter fan base has always wanted. Also after the battle at Hogwarts when Harry Potter walked through the great hall where all the dead a wounded were he was not wearing his invisibility cloak. This seems like a small detail but, in reality it changes the entire mood of the movie. By him walking through there visibly he is acknowledging the dead and the others know that he is there. In the book the invisibility cloak made it so he knew about the death and destruction but it gave the grieving families such as the Weasly's some privacy and kept them out of their private family moments really showing the fact that Harry had no family.
