Is it as good as the final book? No. So don't set your expectations too high.

That said, it's a blummin good watch. Miles better than part one. At just over two hours it fizzed by and I was thoroughly entertained. Okay there are several dodgy accents and I'm still not certain that Daniel Radcliffe will ever be another Laurence Olivier, but there's something for everyone. There's heroism, comedy and action aplenty. Plus, it ties up the entire saga with a nice little bow.

Put the beer on ice, order the pizza, put your feet up and enjoy.

My only production gripe is that it's a bit gloomy, which I am led to believe is a result of being filmed in 3D for the cinema. But, what the heck, after the first beer you won't care.

I have only read up to book five of the Harry Potter series (abandoning it several years ago due to finding the books too childlike and copies of far better literature from our past), but have come back to the films to see them to the end. Being aware of some of the things that take place in the Deathly Hallows (namely the deaths that filled my Facebook homepage), I knew roughly what the storyline was before watching the last two films - but in effect, I was following it as a film story without actually knowing the main plot. I can see how the films can be effective if you have read the books, but as films in themselves they are somewhat lacking, difficult to follow and incredibly rushed.

In spite of the last book being split into two films, no moment was lingered on for more than a few minutes (the death of one of the twins was barely referred to and even Voldemort being defeated was hardly very dramatic or celebratory) and it really felt as if the film makers were trying to stick to the books so much that they were ticking off each moment as they managed to cover it, without considering how the plot would seem to those watchers following the films rather than reading the books first. It must be difficult to adapt Harry Potter into films particularly with such loyal fans being ready to criticise any minor deviation from the written stories - yet I feel that for the Deathly Hallows particularly, they should have based the film on the book but not attempt to shadow it completely so that everything is rushed and not truly effective. The awkwardness of any love scenes is also cringe worthy, and the kiss between Ron and Hermione doesn't even show their faces - we just get to see Ron's hair!

When all is said and done - when the eye candy special effects of Quidditch matches and fantastical creatures has been superseded by advances in technology in Hollywood blockbusters yet to come - it is the little moments that this viewer and his wife will return to.

When a friend one time bemoaned the fact that `Half-Blood Prince' gets bogged down in pointless hormonal teen-angst instead of getting on with the story, I smiled... and shook my head.

No, I said, that IS the story and it's what I love about the Harry Potter series: it never loses track of the characters. It never forgets that, when viewed as a whole, these eight movies are a story of growing up, of the transition from childhood to adulthood. Of love and friendship and death. Because without those little funny and touching moments between the characters - if all you want is for the movies to rush from one plot element to another - then all you're left with is plot... and no story. Remember: plot is what happens TO the characters; story is what happens AS A RESULT of the characters.

That's the real gorgeous beauty of these movies, and it's what will bring viewers back repeatedly to their DVD shelves. As Frodo said to Sam in `The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers': "What are we fighting for Sam?" "That's there's still some good in this world," Sam replies, "and that it's worth fighting for."

That's why you need those little indulgent moments, because without them it's just razzle-dazzle special effects and set-pieces. Harry and Ginny's first kiss: they're in the Room of Requirement and Ginny tells Harry to close his eyes while she hides Professor Snape's copy of Advanced Potion Making.

It's only taken 3 years but, with a new DVD player, I feel I've finally seen this film properly (when we saw it at the pictures, when it came out, we had a nearly empty cinema with a family of six right behind us, and the five year old explaining the concept of cinema to the three year old. I'd have said something but was afraid of being shot).

It's very good. Right from the first (ish) shot of Snape staring down over Hogwarts, with the students marching in Stalinist blocks. My only regret with the whole thing (I think) is that the Carrows make such a poor showing.

And the far more grown-up emphasis is evident from the first scene in the cottage by the sea. Luna dispassionately stating that wind chimes do not keep evil at bay. The following exchange with Griphook and Olivander are shorn of the whimsical cadences with which adults like to frost a child's world. Griphook is cold-bloodedly mercenary, while Olivander is a broken man (Warwick Davies and John Hurt both on tremendous form) and Harry is no longer too young to tell Olivander 'You're lying', nor too nice not to at least consider double-crossing Griphook.

Of course the goblin is a double-dealing little git, who gets incinerated, and the whole Goblin species seems to lose credibility in Gringotts' treatment of that poor dragon, but part of the new Voldemort-era look of the bank is a modernising of all the old Victoriana, so they all now look, well, like C21 bankers. It's rather as if someone is making a point like 'Don't trust bankers cos they're just like the Goblins in this film'.

(One of my favourite moments is Helena Bonham-Corset playing Hermione disguised as Belatrix - it's very funny)

And from there it's off to Hogsmeade, and then into the school, and then into battle.
