Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2011)

It was the second installment and the last movie of the Harry Potter series. Looking back, I remember that I was still in High School when this series of movies started, they were all kids back then and it was such fun to go back those first movies. Technically, the series had 7 books all in all but they have produced 8 movies from it, dividing the last book into two parts. So after about 9 years, the Harry Potter saga had finally come to the last movie.

 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows is just the continuation of the Harry Potter movie last November 2011.  It is based on the 7th Harry Potter book by J.K. Rowling. This movie answers all the questions and finishes the story of the boy who lived and his journey and adventures in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

**spoiler alert**

The movie started just where the last movie ended, the Elder Wand was stolen from Dumbledore's grave by Lord Voldemort. The most powerful wand is in the hands of the villain in the film. Meanwhile, after Harry had buried Dobby, They went back to their mission of destroying Horcrux and so they went to Gringots disguising as Bellatrix to get something in one of the volts. They have succeeded and escaped with a dragon. They were soon in Godric's Hollow and Aberforth helped them. After a while, they were back at Hogwarts and they revealed themselves to the rest of the students there. They ousted Snape as headmaster and soon the war begun.

While everyone is in panic of what will happen, Hermione, Ron and Harry were busy destroying and looking for the other Horcrux. Ron and Hermione destroyed the cup from Bellatrix's volt with the Basilisk's venom while Harry talked to the Grey Lady for the tiara of Ravenclaw. They recovered it and was destroyed because of the cursed fire in the room of requirements. There were only 2 Horcrux left and they are out to destroy them.

Soon, Voldemort's army penetrated the castle and everyone is fighting. Voldemort went to Snape and Harry was there listening to all the conversation and how Snape died because of Nigini biting him. They recovered some tears from snape and harry watched it in Dumbledore's room. He learned about her mother and Snape's history and everything that snape did to protect him.

Harry learned that the only way to stop the fight and prevent the bloodshed is to present himself to Voldemort and so he did, he went to the enchanted forest and soon faced Voldemort there. He cursed him and instantly he died. On the afterlife, he saw Dumbledore and had explained to him everything. The part of voldemort in him was separated killing the Horcrux inside him. He returned to life without Voldemort knowing since Draco Malfoy's mom protected him.

They bought Harry's body back to Hogwarts and after a while, discovered that he was not dead. the battle again continued and soon, Neville found Gryffindore's sword. He used it to kill Nigini, Voldemort's last Horcrux. And so the final battle was between harry and Voldemort which resulted in Voldemort's death. everything was okay and back to normal. The villain is dead and he is not coming back again.

After 19 years, it was shown what happened to them, they were all going at King's Cross Station and were sending their children off to Hogwarts. it was like those first times they were there. The movie end here and everything was good in their world.

**Spoiler Ends**

I liked how they made the movie, it was good enough that I had nothing bad to say about it. The graphics and effects were good and even if there are some parts of the movie that was written differently form the book, it was forgivable. I was just not that convinced in the last scene that it was 19 years later since the casts didn't look like their age but it was a short scene and it doesn't really matter. It was a good watch and I am glad that the Harry Potter series is all finish!

Mischief Managed!
