We caught this flick on Friday night… If I could, I would have seen it first day first show. Harry Potter is the only sequel which has lived up to the book and to the first part. The reason is not just the direction or the editing. It is mainly ‘coz the book is soooo good and the actors are so apt. I could not have imagined a better Harry or Hermione or Ron or Dumbledore or Hagrid etc. They have been the heroes till now… but there are new heroes in the last 2 movies… Bellatrix… Voldemort… and the best… Snape. Bellatrix is perfect as the mad crazy woman… and Snape has this measured way of speaking. I cannot think of any Bollywood actor who could have acted it this way.
I wish the movie would have covered the entire book and I sympathize with the people who haven’t read the book. 4 hours also would not be a deterrent. It has been edited well and does not cover Albus, Aberforth and their sister’s back story. The search and finding of the horcruxes is too fast.
I loved it … and Harry will be missed.
