The final Harry Potter – film review

You must go and see the latest Harry Potter film.

I thought the first in the series was the best, in terms of imagination and great visual effects. Talking pictures and the quidditch game, the wonderful platform scenes and express train and owls and living under the stairs.

But the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is outstanding. Hermoine has grown from a stage school actress trying to please her director, into a fine actress completely feminine but clearly defined in her role.

Ron will improve into a competent supporting actor, perhaps when older into a leading actor. Harry will for me always be Harry. He encapsulates the part to perfection. The entire series has had the backing of probably the best cast of supporting actors of any English film. This is a must for fans, and all who enjoy the art of the movies.

It could be  in the frame for an Oscar, based on the Oscar winners over the past ten years it would be a certainty…but compared with the real Oscar winners of the past for example Ben Hur, Lawrence of Arabia, or Gone with the Wind and even Errol Flynn in Robin Hood…it may just be considered too well made and well written and too exciting to win the award.

This is a must see and I give it three stars…thats three out of three, usually I only give one star.
