Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 3D review

This is the eigth and last instalment of Harry Potter’s film, it has taken a total of ten years to complete the saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, aka HP 7 Part 2, is faithful to the book narrative and preserves J.K. Rowling characters as she intended them to be, if you have already read the last Harry Potter novel you will not find too many discrepancies in the film.

This epic finale is full of heroism sprinkled with moments of humourous respite, its terrific cast will make the characters live forever in people’s hearts, the film will not dissapoint Harry Potter fans, just not an ideal start for people who have never heard of the teen wizard as it is the last part.

Harry Potter 2D vs 3D version

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 hits the cinemas in 2D and 3D, the 3D special effects are fine but still a post-conversion film, not filmed with 3D cameras like Avatar was. Tim Burke, the visual effects film supervisor claimed in LA Times that they have done over 200 shots in 3D but the truth being that when a film was never conceived as a 3D project from the start and it is hard to justify a price hike in 3D tickets. Harry Potter 3D enhances the experience but gives the impression of just being gimmick to legitimize the added income for Warner Bros, Harry Potter is good enough as it is in 2D with its 3D version doing no harm but without blowing away viewers like other 3D films do.

Synopsis: Harry, Ron and Herminone continue their pursuit of Dark Lord’s three remaining Hoxcruxes, the magical items that they want to destroy giving him inmortality. When the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered and Voldemort finds out about their mission, an all out battle in between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world breaks out.
