Went to the final film today. It was a satisfactory conclusion to the franchise. I think all my emotion was spent on the initial reading of the book, so as far as the deaths of certain characters, closure, the final moments, etc were concerned I didn't have much of a reaction. But I did enjoy the adapatation and the battle scenes were epic in their own way. I was surprised to see how many of the adult actors had such little screen time considering this was the last hurrah. Hagrid wasn't in the movie for more than two minutes.
Out of all the Tentpole movies I've seen this summer, I've gone to the majority of them opening Friday during a matinee show. And this was the first time this summer where the theater was PACKED FULL. Pirates had maybe 20 people. Lantern had less than that. Transformers had around 50 or so. But Potter's auditorium was full. Which reinforces my belief it will be the highest grossing film of 2011.
