The fantasy franchise comes to a hugely satisfying and teary-eyed conclusion as Voldemort and Harry clash for the last time, with a sensational revelation about the hero schoolboy's destiny, which Dumbledore had kept secret. Continuing where Part 1 left off, Harry, Hermione and Ron search for the magical horcruxes, the key to the evil lord's immortality. Every beloved character gets their moment in the spotlight as white dragons fly over London, ghouls hover eerily around Hogwarts and its plucky pupils prepare for battle. The technical wizardry on display is perfectly crafted and fires the imagination like never before. There's also a deliciously menacing gravity lacking from previous episodes that puts the final spectacular confrontation on a truly mythic plane. Packing an emotional wallop, too, in the moments Snape's story is uncovered and in Harry's ghostly parental encounter, David Yates directs this lavish epic with the surest of hands.

Plot Summary
