Jul 16, 2011 @ 14:49: Waiting in the theater to see the movie. went alone just after work. Seats are mostly vacant. Sad to see people at my place are pretty much unaware about the book. Its in 3D. The audience is mostly college kids.

The movie was good. It did justice to the book, except for the final scenes which didn't exactly reflect the emotional intensity of the book. So surprising to see the changes in the movie, like Ron and Hermione allowing Harry to go to the forest and die. Ron's face doesn't even flinch when he says good bye. Same with the final scenes when un-necessary hand to hand combat between Potter and Voldemort has been pictured. Only Neville seems to be upset on seeing Harry's dead body. Ron and Hermione just looks in disbelief. No emotional expressions apart from that. The movie has indeed honoured Snape though, and i'm glad to see that.
So in short, its a good watch but don't expect it to be as good as the book.
