Harry Potter - Harry Potter's Deathly Hallows Part 2 Receives Glowing Reviews

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the final movie in the hugely successful movie franchise, has received a spate of glowing reviews following its preview showings this week. Harry Potter fans are currently queuing in London's Leicester Square for the movie's official premiere.
The Daily Telegraph's Philip Womack, who provided the first review of the movie, suggested the film outdoes JK Rowling's final novel, saying, "Perhaps the greatest triumph of this final film is its ability to overcome the deficiencies of J K Rowling's writing. In the last Harry Potter volume, she failed singularly to muster the epic feel needed". Womack goes on to describe David Yates' film as "monumental cinema". The Hollywood Reporter highlights the "stronger sense of dramatic composition" in comparison to the previous Potter films and calls the movie a "massively eventful finale". The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw suggests the final instalment looks "far superior" to Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King', adding, "The crucial moment of the film is where, I admit, I have a quibble: it is gripping and even moving when Harry realises what his destiny is, and sets out to fulfil it".
The Harry Potter movies, featuring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, have grossed a combined total of over $6 billion worldwide.
