This is the second half of the book of the same name. In this last film, Harry must face Lord Voldemort to make sure that Voldemort cannot take over the world, or harm anyone else.

While I did like this movie over-all, I think that it may have been a little more to do with the fact that I enjoyed this half of the book.

While I could probably have done without the reintroduction of Percy (and his subsequent forgiveness by his family), I would still have liked have had that scene where the Weasleys are a family again (especially considering what eventually happens to Fred). Speaking of Fred, and the Weasleys being a family again ... it would have been nice if the twins had been in more than one scene in the entire movie ... more than one scene before Fred was killed dead. The scenes with the Weasley twins were some of my favorites in the books, and to take the two of them away from this final movie (especially when something so traumatic happens) was a rather big letdown. Also, I was expecting that there would be some Kreacher, since JK apparently made a big deal about putting him into Order of the Phoenix. Since she did that, I thought that the house elves helping take out Voldy, but ... nothing.

On the plus side, McGonagall was as awesome as ever, they kept in the "not my daughter, you bitch" line, and (most importantly) Neville is a ROCK STAR. That's right, Neville Longbottom is a rock star, probably the biggest rock star that has ever rocked in all of Hogwarts (or anywhere else).
