The final chapter of Harry Potter is now in theatres and is clearly going to make a ton of money. We have already heard that critics loved the movie with them praising this final instalment as a great conclusion to an incredibly popular and profitable film franchise.
The big question is what have the fans thought of the movie which has been selling out theatres in droves. It broke records selling $25million in pre-ticket sales and is on track to make a pile of cash in theatres this weekend and beyond.
MTV news waited outside a theatre to get some honest reaction from fans on what they thought and this is the video they shot;
Variety writes; In keeping with its predecessors, “Part 2″ delivers below-the-line work of an immaculate standard. The visual effects are so deftly and artfully handled that the magic seems almost commonplace, and Alexandre Desplat’s fine score incorporates a gratifying blast of John Williams’ familiar themes and, most poignantly, a mournful Nicholas Hooper composition from the sixth pic. D.p. Eduardo Serra’s brooding, beautiful work gains little, however, from the underwhelming stereoscopic conversion; this is the first Potter film to be released entirely in 3D as well as 2D, and on this count, at least, one can be grateful that it will be the last.
The Hollywood Reporter: It ends well. After eight films in 10 years and a cumulative global box-office take of more than $6.3 billion, the most successful franchise in the history of movies comes to an obligatory — and quite satisfying — conclusion in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Fully justifying the decision, once thought purely mercenary, of splitting J.K. Rowling’s final book into two parts, this is an exciting and, to put it mildly, massively eventful finale that will grip and greatly please anyone who has been at all a fan of the series up to now. If ever there was a sure thing commercially, this stout farewell is it.
The Wrap writes; With the million awful, tacky, shrill, stupid, condescending, tasteless, “Eragon”-y things that could have gone wrong over the 10 years and eight movies that brought J.K. Rowling’s mega-popular Harry Potter series to the big screen, it’s practically a statistical anomaly that the final entry, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” brings its A-game from start to finish. It’s something akin to finding a herd of eight adorable, cotton-candy-pooping unicorns.
