The eighth and final Harry Potter movie is everything you hoped it would be: big, beautiful, thrilling, emotional, and a gratifying conclusion to a series that's had more ups than downs over the past 10 years.
It picks up where last year's dark Deathly Hallows: Part One left off, leading to a rousing and violent showdown between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). This is a movie about tying up loose ends and bringing closure to all the stories and characters that populate Harry's world.
In other words, if you haven't seen any of the other Harry Potter movies, don't start with this one. If you have, get ready for the best movie in the series and a spectacular finale to this magical universe. Goodbye, Harry, Ron, and Hermione. We're going to miss you. --Michael Gallucci
