Also know as Harry Potter 7 or HP7.
My fiance is a huge Harry Potter fan. She's read all the books and has every movie on DVD. I have yet to read a Harry Potter book but if I was trapped in a snow bound cabin for a couple of months it wouldn't bother me to have all the books there to pass the time. That being said I was dragged along to the movie theater to see the first installment of the last book.
My take. meh. While the cinematography was great and so were the special effects I had a hard time figuring out what the hell was going on. It's been a while since I've seen the last movie. I just let that go and watch trying to pick up on the plot and enjoy the ride. I mean I get it the bad guys want to kill Harry Potter. What else is new. It probably didn't help that I had to get up to pee twice. I don't know what movie theaters put in there soda but man it goes right though me. Honestly all the "kids" in the movie are getting a little old but I guess this is the last one.
So all in all not too terrible. I mean I did make her sit through the A-Team, and she's probably going to have to go along and see the Green Lantern movie next summer, which was a sweet trailer by the way.
After the movie I asked if it followed the book closely and she told me no. So at least I don't have the bias of comparing the movie to the book. God that sucked in Lord of the Rings. So I will hold off reading any Harry Potter till I get dragged to the next and last movie in the series.
