Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II

Manuela and I joined friends on Saturday to watch the conclusion of the Harry Potter film series. The Deathly Hallows Part II is definitely worth watching (more than once). Parts of the ending of the story are better (more logically explained) in the movie than in Rowling’s final Harry Potter book. I wish the epilogue would have included more from the book, however.  At the showing we attended, there were no kids in the theater (we guessed it was too early for them to get up), and it was obvious from the audience reaction that many had only watched the previous seven movies and not ready any of the books.  These would have been better served in the last film by including more from the epilogue.

One comment:  The book explained why Harry believed and advised Neville Longbottom to kill the snake Nagini.  In the film, Neville just acted (with the sword of Godric Griffindor)  to kill the snake that was threatening Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, so one was left wondering whether any but the trio (Harry, Ron and Hermione) knew the snake was the last horcrux standing in the way of Voldemort’s demise.   It was an difference not especially material, but interesting nevertheless.
