The Harry Potter series has taken the world by storm for the past 10 years. Potter fanatics eagerly awaited the release of the first half of the final film to see if it met their expectations.

Some people complain that Harry Potter films are too long but “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is packed with action and the plot line never gets boring.

Emma Watson’s (Hermione Granger) acting skills have also improved, so it makes the film more enjoyable.

This film means business. It starts killing off people within the first 15 minutes. To ease the pain of losing witches and wizards, Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) is, not surprisingly, often used as comic relief.

After deciding not to return Hogwarts, Harry, Hermione and Ron embark on an epic adventure that involves sleeping in random woods and running from Death Eaters, while trying to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is much darker than its predecessors. The entire two and a half hours keeps you on the edge of your seat, accompanied by an eerie feeling.

The final scene will leave you begging for more, but unfortunately you’ve got eight months of waiting for the second half of the final film.

If you’ve never read the Harry Potter books, start now. Warner Brothers wasn’t kidding when it claimed the series would provide the movie event of a generation.
