And so the epic ends. Ten years after we were first introduced on the big screen to the boyish charm and acute quick-wit of an undeniably special lad named Harry Potter, the final chapter of a movie series that has morphed into the most prodigious film franchise in history leaves viewers soaring, taking them on one final magical adventure, before coming quietly to rest. The ending to a saga fraught with themes of morality and atonement could not have been more befitting – emotional and epic, yet quiet and subdued.
Exhilarating and completely satisfying, yet not overwhelming, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” is symbolic of all the hallmarks of a story that throughout its narrative has both peaked and ebbed, deftly maneuvering between grand, overarching themes, before always coming back to being the tale of a young boy, who has lost his parents, trying to find his way in the world.
“Deathly Hallows: Part 2” picks up exactly where its precursor left off and continues for the first part in a slower paced, somber vein. We see Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) seated at the tombstone of his dear friend Dobby the elf, saying goodbye, before resuming on his quest to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes and Voldemort, with the help of his stalwart friends Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint).
