New Harry Potter Movie Review: Deathly Hallows Part 2

Well, the movie was pretty good. I did feel there were somethings that were left out which hurt the movie, while some things left out which made it flow better. Personally, Percy's side story was never that strong, cutting it did nothing to the plot. However, Dumbledore's backstory being nearly cut (such as him the death of his sister for an actual reason, and Glendalwald at all) was a huge loss. The movie had strong points, such as the Hogwarts battle, but it needed some time to calm down. It was hard to keep up at times. I mean, we go from place to place, with a sense of urgency. This sense doesn't go away at all, and it starts about 40 minutes in. This movie is about 2 and a half hours long (listed as 2 hours 5 minutes, felt longer), that is a lot of urgency.

The movie was great, but please put a halt on it. I mean, if the first part was shown at the same time, it would have been much more balanced. I guess that combined with a sense of having to get to work made the urgency even worse.
