Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 review

(!!!!!!!!! CONTAINS SPOILER !!!!!!!!!!)

First off I am in no way disappointed with the film. In fact I think it was very good, giving the saga an epic end. So 5/5 in my book… very entertaining.

However! There is one scene that really annoys me. It’s the final showdown between Harry and Voldemort (SPOILER) in which Harry finally kills him. In the book the two are surrounded by what seems to be everyone in the magical world, all watching to see how it’ll end. In the film its just Harry and Voldemort, everyone else is elsewhere not watching. Once the deed is done, Harry goes into the great hall where everyone has gathered and there are all smiles and hugs.

I like to think that when Harry went into the great hall there was a scene which was cut out. In which Harry says something like this:

“Yeah, Yeah, I Killed him, most powerful wizard of all time my ass. What? You guys didn’t see? You came though all this shit with me and you couldn’t be bothered to watch me finish it.”

(pause)

“Seriously, He’s dead. It’s all over. How did I kill him? With a disarming spell. Yeah, and he just evaporated, it was epic. No joke, you should’ve seen it.’

So you’re Thor… I’m not impressed

(contains spoilers)

Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t a bad film just disappointing. My three qualms with the film are:

  1. The Hammer in the Stone that only the rightful owner can pull out. Hang on this rings a bell… I’m thinking King Arthur?… The Sword in the Stone?
  2. Thor’s band of merry idiots. I can only guess that these Viking armored idiots were in the film to get the laughs… well they weren’t funny and looked like they fell out of a bad Monty Python rip off.
  3. Lastly: Thor’s long exile. Thor is exiled form Asgard because he’s being a cock (summarising). Striped of his powers, he’s sent to Earth to learn his lesson. As far as I could tell Thor learns this lesson in three days, gets his powers back and returns home. Even for the god of thunder that’s impressive.
