So here we are has been a household name now since July 2nd 1998. So after 13 years and 5 months we finally say good-bye and farewell to Mr Potter.
The lovely people at Think Jam sent me a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 to watch. The comical thing really is they couldn’t have asked the least favourite fan of Harry Potter if they tried.
I did attempt to read the first book, but I couldn’t get into it. However the Hubster quiet like the films and now it has turned into an exercise in making sure it is suitable for G who is 7.
So we lead on from quiet a dark and scary film, certainly not for younger children. We open the film up again very dark, to be honest it was so dark in some parts of the cinematography that we couldn’t see what was on the screen at all! The FX were amazing though and it goes to show from The Philosopher’s Stone to this how far the world of film has come. The fighting scenes were amazing, and you did find yourself rooting for the characters to win. Being upset when characters didn’t make it.
The story line was good and it really tied up the loose end, seeing key characters finally getting it on! I mean come on your meant to be teenagers.
The film dragged slightly could have done with about 30minutes chopping out, but all in all it will be strange not having anymore Harry Potter in our life. It will be a book I will encourage my sons to read and if you are a Harry Potter I am sure you will love the film and will need your tissues throughout the film.
Harry Potter is now available to buy from all good DVD retailers.
I was kindly sent a copy of the DVD for reviewing purpose, however the comments are my own personal thoughts and feelings.
