A fast paced, beautifully made movie that serves as a wholly satisfying conclusion to the worldwide phenomena that is Harry Potter. Director David Yates pulls out all the stops here, making the movie extremely action-packed while not skimping out on the details. The movie's cast is as brilliant as ever, with standout performances by Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) and Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort). Other than the rushed ending, this movie is an incredible feat, showing that they truly have saved the best (well, 2nd best) for last. My Rating: 3.5/4 Rotten Tomatoes: 97% Metacritic: 87 (Universal Acclaim) Running Time: 130 min., Rated PG-13 The movie definitely deserves some long awaited Oscars nominations, particularly for Visual Effects (which it should definitely win), Editing, Art Direction, Costume, Original Score, Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Alan Rickman, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound Mixing. Methinks that the Awards Circuit won't miss the chance to honor the end of a worldwide phenomena. Do discuss.
