David Yates’s final film in the Harry Potter series, in which the boy-wizard enters the cruel end-game with Lord Voldemort, is a triumph of the director’s art. For its lengthy duration it succeeds in making us wholly believe in its extravagantly unreal vision. Which is quite something, seeing how many films fail to create a convincing portrait of even the wonderfully.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 takes up where Part 1 left off, and if the first was a haunting film laced with constant anticipation, the new one plunges immediately into action: the infiltration by Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) of the vault belonging to the snaggle-toothed Death Eater, Bellatrix Lestrange (played with gothic gusto by Helena B. Carter). Their mission is to get and destroy a Horcrux (one of the objects that safe soul and give Voldemort his power to came immortally)
The appeal of the Potter films has always been a combination of fast-plotted action . Their extraordinary sets swerve between cosy and deeply sinister: here, Eduardo Serra’s stupendous cinematography thickens the atmosphere further, wringing some of the film’s most freshing scenes from the grey light of dusk as statues march, giants roar and bridges collapse in the heat of battle.
Here, Yates manages to infuse a tale of wizardly wars with a kindly epic quality. When, an end Harry and Voldemort struggle across the ground to reach their wands, the scene should by rights be a risible parody of a real battlefield, yet somehow it remains gripping. Only one area is lacking: the budding relationships between Ron and Hermione, Harry and Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) take up very little screen time. Yet Harry Potter has never been about romance, but about loyalty, courage, dilligently and sacrificely.
I think The transfer of Rowling’s stories to the screen has been beautifully and imaginatively done, and they will certainly come to be seen as cinema classics for future generations of children. Know its time to say Goodbye to Harry and friend, we will miss them.
