Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

Film Review: It All Ends With Satisfying ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’

CHICAGO – So this is how it ends – not with a whimper but with a big, magical bang. After a decade of captivating movie audiences worldwide, will “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” appease the fans who have been eagerly anticipating the end of the saga of the boy who lived?

It’s a well-executed slice of fantasy entertainment that nonetheless fails to rise to the level of true classic.
