The day has finally come to discus the very last part of Harry Potter series – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II”. I know, that it might seem that this discussion is years late, but I don’t care, because I don’t go chasing only the newest films. So let’s start discussing.
Of all the Harry Potter series this was the darkest part for me in all senses. And the saddest. First of all, we had to face a lot of losses of our beloved characters. Second of all, it was the actual end, meaning there will be no more films, meaning this great story has come to an end. And this was truly sad thing about this part. Seeing everything ruined, gone is not what you would enjoy to see at the end of the story. It’s really black and dark.
Watching scene where we are introduced with all those characters who died in a fight is really sad. Sure, there were lots of losses throughout the entire Harry Potter series, but this time we lost so many beloved characters at once. Trully heartbreaking scene.
Again, here is brought back my already nationalism idea from my previous post on Harry Potter, in this part we also face the same issue in several ways. One – incaptivated, poorly treated (maybe even tortured) creatures considering them being lower (like dragon at Gringgots bank). Two – dark forces are so much superior than the good ones (last time I made a point on nationalism relating it to the problem of pure blood wizards and mixed wizard-Muggle, or entirely Muggle born wizards) so they persecute those who are against them. In this part it was visible some sort of propaganda machine example when Voldemort reaches out for Hogwarts students, he reaches their mind like talking through radio, controlling them. And there are other examples: students marching as soldiers… I don’t know how about you, but it somehow reminded me of Hitlerjugend (I know, dark assosiations of mine), then we of course have this lodgement of a complaint politics (well, this is not only a feature of Nazis regime, but fits for it as well). And all this has one grand goal –war, fight the good powers and win over them.
On the other hand, this part represents the beauty of unity. Whenever you face a disaster and to get through it the situations requires people. People who could get together, be as one to fight for the victory even though it might never happen. In this Harry Potter part we saw the biggest unity of a magical world to fight Voldemort. Moreover, this part (more than the previous ones) shows us that cowardness, in fighting problems is a the worst feature. It doesn’t help you to solve anything. On the other hand, true love, true friendship is the biggest value and are able to change unchangeable things.
While watching this movie, I don’t know why, but I remembered “The Lord of the Rings” movies. Probably it was so, because of the scene where a huge and wild crowd of Death Eaters was running to Hogwarts. They looked like orcs to me, but I don’t know why.
All in all, it was good film. And there are few things that caught my attention and does not need detailed discussion. First of all, – Voldemort in pain. I don’t know why, but it was interesting to watch it (I hope that does not make me a bad person 🙂 ). Second of all, in some scenes it seems that Harry’s glassess are actually without glass, it’s just frames. Thirdly, Snape’s part was well played, developed and tangled throughout the entire Harry Potter story. And lastly, even the biggest bad guys care for their kids – like Malfoys.
This whole magical story was such a great journey through this this mystique, another kind of world. It was interesting, adventurous and fascinating. Sadly, it had to end as all the good things do.
