Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2
release year: 2011
viewing setting: theater, 9/4/11
synopsis: Everything comes together, as Harry and friends try to destroy pieces of the evil bad guy, while the evil bad guy marshals his forces to attack the school.
impressions: I really don't feel the need to write a long, detailed review. Why would I? Others have already done that. I'll just say that this contains plenty of magical battles and tense events, and the entire second half of the movie is one big action scene. Be warned: you have to have seen the previous movie(s) to understand this one. I'm sure there's someone out there who will just walk into it cold and then complain that it didn't make any sense.
acting: Again, no need to recap it all here. Everyone returns, everyone does a great job.
final word: A worthy ending to a saga that's spanned eight movies and ten years.
