Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Review

Update: Okay my review is a little harsh because it's mostly for people who read the book. Really the movie is awesome. GO SEE IT or FREAKIN WATCH THE BOOTLEG.
It was a sad ending for everyone but lets give a realistic review to everyone who  may want to go out watch the movie  or save themselves the annoyance and watch it online. First off if you read the critic reviews yes the movie was great, it was best of the movie series, but if you read the book, the movie was a bit of a disappointment.   Warning: Spoilers
Story: B- at most
First off, only the first 30 minutes actually devoted toward the the rest of the plots. That's okay. This makes watchers think they will really get into the story. So first off they skirmish on Dobby's death. That doesn't annoy us much because the goblin does mention how curious it is that Harry buried him. They skirmish on Bill's warning about goblins. Which is okay for watchers because it causes impact when Griphook betrays them.  Overall the whole gringotts scene is pretty good. But when they get Hogsmede that's when we get very annoyed. They completely skip on the part Ariana and Grindelwald. This is very important for the readers to understand Dumbledore and Harry's character development. If it wasn't for this bit, Harry might not of gone out to face Voldemort. Then they go into the castle. Very accurate. Seamus goes and call up the order. Also really great. But then we see a plot loop.
My, hello, Luna how did you get here?
Seamus was noted to call the Order. Luna is a year younger than Harry so could not be possibly called. How did she get here? Why is she here? The coins were explained in the book but not here.Besides these little annoyance, we moved on and the movie gets awesome.
Neville was awesome
 Then it's the penisieve annoys me again. They completely skip how much Snape loved Lily and what he went through in devotion to her. All we really get out of it is that he loved her. No deeper meaning.
Then lastly the epic fight with Harry and Voldemort. It was a good fight but they ended up doing a lot of muggle dueling and if you read the series you know Voldemort hates muggles. Why on earth would he fight like one. That was a bit confusing. Its obvious the screenwriters and director cared more about captivating the audience then actually being acurate.  But it's what ever. It's not going to change much.
Overall story wise: I give the story a C+ or B-. It didn't suck but it wasn't great. I mean compared to the  Dark Knight, it fell really short. Compared to all the other movies out this weekend, this is the must see movie event. It mean it did do some justice in some areas but was like a criminals at crucial things. You get the gist.
Acting: A+
 All the characters really got it together for the finale. And I was surprised to see so many new faces. This movie was the most diverse with the extras. I guess everyone wanted to be in the finale. Snape acting was the best to me. I always liked his character for some odd reason and now I know why. My second favorite was Neville. Omg I fell in love with his character development. Now viewers truly see he is fit to be a gryffindor.  Omg talking back straight to Voldemort. At least this was an aspect that the screenwriters didn't fail in.
Direction: C+
For obvious reasons
Visuals: A+
At least the aspect was increadibly awesome.  The effects were just way too good.

Overall: Solid B
So the movie is actually worth seeing. But if you haven't read the books. This is the time to go and read them. This is a sad ending to the saga that has taken about 11 years of all our lives. Thanks for reading.
