Aren't people bored with Harry Potter movies?! I can't tell if the story is poor starting with the book or do the adaptations just get worse and worse. I have no idea what this 2 hours and 10 minutes movie was about: all so confusing and unbalanced. I'm no expert in Harry Potter (though, seen all), but this has got to be the weakest movies of the series, right?
And they didn't even give us Ralph Fiennes who is a delicious villain. The visual effects were... nice, but the Cinematography nomination is an unfortunate event. What's wrong with the people from that Cinematography branch? Haven't they seen Bright Star, Where the Wild Things Are, Public Enemies, ANYTHING?!
My rating for the film: 5.5/10. Confusing story, but I salute Jim Broadbent's effective supporting performance. I hope the final 2 episodes will give a decent ending.
