Needed an evening off last night after a frustrating week, so I headed east to O-town and took in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (pt. 2) to relax and cool off.
So I'm clear, I didn't dislike the movie. But of all the Harry Potter movies, this one is definitely my least favorite. Throughout the movie the thought kept coming to mind "Lord of the Rings did this so much better." Better characters, better acting, better effects, better score, better fight scenes, better good verses evil plot.
And I really feel like they mailed it on on the ending (most everything following the destruction of Voldemort).
I did like that it was fairly dark and gritty throughout, with a noticeable scene brightening (with sunlight!) to both start and end the movie.
Have you seen it? What did you think?
