version of the seventh and last book in J.K. Rowling's series
was devided up into two parts - with the first released on November 19, 2010 and
the second part released on July 15, 2011.
The reviews for the final and most "satisfying" of the total eight films released in the series,were everything the fans (and producers) were hoping for...
Released on July 15, 2011, the culmination of the movie series that was watched by a generation of Harry Potter fans -- was both bittersweet and triumphant:
Daily Mail UK: "Really, the entire series of Potter books and motion pictures has been leading us to this final showdown between Harry and Voldemort. It could easily have been a letdown. But the fight here between good and evil is more than satisfying. It's thrilling."
Harry, Ron, and Hermione face the final battle
in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Times of India: "The high point of the finale is the all-pervasive presence of Lord Voldemort and the high voltage encounters between the evil wizard and Harry Potter. If Daniel Radcliffe creates one of the most credible young heroes of cinema -- both poignant and brave -- then Fiennes lends a dignity and a terror to his unbridled portrayal of evil."
New York Times: "Childhood ends, this time forever, with tears and howls, swirls of smoke, the shock of mortality and bittersweet smiles in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the grave, deeply satisfying final movie in the series."
Chicago Sun-Times: "This movie is impressively staged, the dialogue is given proper weight and not hurried through, there are surprises which, in hindsight, seem fair enough, and "Harry Potter" now possesses an end that befits the most profitable series in movie history."
Hollywood Reporter: "An outstanding capper to the most lucrative film franchise of all time."
