Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (12A)

Action, Adventure, Fantasy

The final chapter begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord's three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered, and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.

The critical consensus

This is monumental cinema, awash with gorgeous tones, and carrying an ultimate message that will resonate with every viewer, young or old: there is darkness in all of us, but we can overcome it.

Philip Womack, The Telegraph, 05/07/2011

Fusing spectacle and emotion into a thrilling final chapter, director David Yates ensures that the series goes out with a bang. Finales don’t come much grander than this.

****(*)Richard Jordan, Total Film, 07/07/2011

Of course, if the films haven't won you over by this point, this one is unlikely to make you a convert, but for the millions of fans who've grown up with Potter, it's good enough to make saying goodbye a tougher proposition.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 08/07/2011

Kudos above all, however, to Yates, who helmed the three previous films, for managing to balance story and spectacle. The final Potter is his toughest narrative test of all, and he passes it.

****(*)The Herald, 08/07/2011

This is such an entertaining, beguiling, charming and exciting picture.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 07/07/2011

A triumph for all involved and a great testimony to the skill and expertise alive in the British film industry.

Daily Express, 08/07/2011

Harry Potter And The Deathly Sense Of Self Importance Part 2 is a handsome, action-packed affair that ties up loose ends, dispatches villains, congratulates heroes and is completely indecipherable to the uninitiated.

***(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 12/07/2011

A worthy farewell that packs in as much action as its seven predecessors combined and manages not to stint on the emotional beats. Harry Potter leaves us as a quiet, bespectacled, corduroy-wearing hero for the ages.

****(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 11/07/2011

At its best, and this finale falls just short of Alfonso Cuaron’s Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), its whimsical, chaotically-assembled brand of retro fantasy has been an peppy, uncynical tonic. It’s hard to disagree with Dumbledore’s parting shot: “Of course it’s happening inside your head, Harry; that doesn’t mean it’s not real.”

****(*)Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph, 14/07/2011

A fitting culmination to a monumental achievement

Paul Greenwood, Evening Times, 14/07/2011

This is such an entertaining, beguiling, charming and exciting picture. It reminded me of the thrill I felt on seeing the very first one, 10 years ago.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 14/07/2011

Much better than I expected, given the mediocrity of the series in general and the fizzle of part one in particular.

***(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 15/07/2011

So long, Harry. It’s been magic.

****(*)David Edwards, Daily Record, 15/07/2011

When the film came to its brisk and restrained conclusion, I wouldn't say I was sad to see the back of the franchise, but I bade it a fonder farewell than I would have expected.

Nicholas Barber, The Independent on Sunday, 17/07/2011

When this epic odyssey began, I raised the question as to whether the Harry Potter films would endure as well as The Wizard of Oz. My answer then was: "Quite possibly." I'm now much less sure.

Philip French, The Observer, 17/07/2011

It’s great that the series has come to a proper conclusion. Nevertheless, it’s sort of sad to see it go.
