Both spectacular and moving, this final Harry Potter film brings the series to a close with panache. Harry will be sorely missed, says Alex Davidson.
Already the third most successful film of all time, the final Harry Potter film brings the franchise to a close with panache. With its audience having watched Harry, Hermione and Ron grow from kids to mature young adults, the film manages to be both spectacular and - a rarity in blockbusters - very moving.
From its opening raid on Gringotts bank to the final, epic Battle for Hogwarts, the film delivers stupendous action sequences throughout, with a Visual Effects Oscar all but guaranteed. Yet it is the focus on human relationships that really sets the film apart, such as a wonderful scene, where Harry, facing a devastating scenario, is visited by the spirits of all those who have loved him. This is undoubtedly the finest acting we have seen from Daniel Radcliffe so far.
Deathly Hallows - Part 2 is arguably the best of the series (only Goblet of Fire really rivals it). While people still debate the franchise’s ‘Britishness’, there is no denying that the films’ use of British talent, both in front of and behind the camera, has been a terrific boost for the country's film industry. Harry will be sorely missed.

The final instalment in the fantasy adventure series based on the bestselling books by J.K. Rowling.
With Voldemort's domination almost complete, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) face a race against time to find and destroy the Horcruxes, thereby extinguishing the Dark Lord's power. Returning to Hogwarts, where the last Horcrux is to be found, Harry, his schoolfriends and the tutors soon find themselves preparing for the final, desperate battle with Voldemort, with Harry realising that in order for him to win the day, he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
