It's been a long time coming. A very long time. Whilst it took three movies to get to the epic showdown of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, it's taken seven to get to the final battle between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. In this final part in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), accompanied by his friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), continue their quest to find and destroy the final Horcruxes (physical manifestations of Voldemort's soul) before he destroys Hogwarts and Harry Potter himself.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 despite some impressive set pieces, was a slow and meandering film, a slavish fan service to the legions of muggles who eagerly awaited with pitchforks those responsible if their pent ultimate novel was mishandled. But this is first and foremost; a movie. It has to be a compelling visual journey and in this regard I found it left wanting. But it was ok - because Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was going to be a home run. Right?
