Movie: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 & 2 (2010-2011)


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 & 2

Everyone knows Harry Potter, so I won't explain much about the storyline. I haven't read the novels and I've only watched Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second of seven Harry Potter movies. I consider the Deathly Hallows as one movie.

In a nutshell, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1 & 2) is the final movie of the Harry Potter movie series. The story follows Harry, Ron, and Hermione on a quest of fulfilling Dumbledore's request by finding and destroying Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes, the magical items contributing to the Dark Lord's immortality. Only by destroying the Horcruxes could the Dark Lord be defeated.

Part 2 garners mostly positive comments from the audience, of which I agree. After all these years, this is indeed the best installment of the Harry Potter series. However, I'm quite surprised that both the Part 1 and 2 movies are very dark, gloomy, and foreboding, not exactly suitable for young children. I guess the nature of the story has to get darker as the characters grow up. You can expect all sort of things related to darkness, death, and sorrow.

Since I haven't read any of the novels, I'm delighted to learn new things about the franchise's magical creatures, characters, and objects.

Here are some of my favorites pointers, especially those related to Severus Snape, my favorite character:


  • Harry named his second son Albus Severus, after Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. He said, "You were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them [Snape] was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew."

  • J.K. Rowling when asked if she considers Snape a hero, replied: "Yes, I do; though a very flawed hero. An anti-hero, perhaps. He is not a particularly likeable man in many ways. He remains rather cruel, a bully, riddled with bitterness and insecurity - and yet he loved, and showed loyalty to that love and, ultimately, laid down his life because of it. That's pretty heroic!"

  • Snape is voted #1 character by fans: "Snape's fate, more than Voldemort's, perhaps more even than Harry's, is the most heartbreaking, surprising, and satisfying of all of Rowling's achievements."

  • I really like this article - 50 Greatest Harry Potter Characters: Severus Snape.
It all ends, but it all ends good.
