Finally, a Harry Potter movie that isn’t actually boring to non-fans. After dozing off through the last two films (way too much dialogue, way too few surprises), we relished this fitting finale that comes replete with epic battle scenes that last for at least an hour and a race-to-the-finish plot job that manages to tie everything together just nicely, if not all too spectacularly.
(UK/USA) Directed by David Yates. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint. Category IIA.
UK/USA. Category IIA.
