Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

harry-potter-deathly-2I’m not a huge Harry Potter fan. I don’t hate him, but I watched all these movies like George Mallory might have – simply because they are there. In other words – I have no idea why.

So, this one ends the series, and we all find out how it ends. Spoiler: it ends in a massive cop-out. Seriously? A “he’s technically dead for a few minutes to reverse some spell, and then we resurrect him?” Give me a break – magic shouldn’t work on a technicality. Dead means dead forever. Harry should have sacrificed his life – for real – either by annihilating Voldemort, or weakening Voldemort enough so that Harry’s friends could kill him. The more I think about it, I wonder if JK Rowling had intended to end it that way, but chickened-out at the last minute because she was worried about the message it’d send… that a suicide mission can be right. Either way, the end just felt like one giant “Come! on!!! Are you Serious? pfffft”
