David Yates is the fourth and final director of the Harry Potter series with the eighth film and conclusion, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. This movie begins with a recap of part one where the Dark Lord (Ralph Fiennes) captures the Elderly Wand. By possessing the wand, Lord Voldemort is even more powerful and Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) knows he has to stop him from becoming immortal. Harry, along with his friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), continue searching for the last to destroy in order to weaken Lord Voldemort. If you’re a Harry Potter fan you know horcruxes are objects that contain pieces of the Dark Lord’s soul. While the three friends are on their mission, Hogwarts new headmaster Professor Severus Snape (Alan Rickman) along with the students and teachers are under attack by Dementors and Deatheaters (If you’re a Potterhead this is one of the most emotional parts of the film.) The story has one ending – the battle between good and evil – a showdown between Harry who is now a young powerful wizard and the seemingly unstoppable Lord Voldemort. As if we began in the middle of a movie, this film begins with action almost immediately, with no lead-in to the characters or storyline. (That’s right, if the book is divided into two movies, everybody will double their profits. Isn’t that what it’s all about?) With that off my chest my complaints aren’t as bad as they sound. This film is exciting, intense and even touching at times. (I expect Potterheads to do some crying and everybody else might feel a twinge of emotions.) It has just the perfect amount of action with the dialogue setting up the scenes – which is great if you are blind. Over the last ten years the acting has improved immensely by the three lead actors and the supporting cast is still outstanding. This is one of the best Harry Potter films in the series and I’m giving it a B rating.

This movie has been given a PG=13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
