I first saw this when it came out in the cinema and didn’t like it. Wasn’t a Harry Potter movie I could switch off and enjoy. This time I get it. This isn’t a kids movie or one with nice little fantasy touches, it’s part of the story that was already written and shows the age of the characters rather than another copy of the same-as-before. That’s why it’s so dark and a little bit grown up.

So good film or no? Yes, good film. Bit odd in places as it tries to create a set up for the end game of the next film and it’s also not one I can see being useful to those that don’t know at least one of the previous HP films.

Players are all good in their parts and as usual there are a number of older chaps who pull in a lot of quality character acting. There’s also a good couple of wand fights and it’s nice to see the zap! zap! rather than Put-on-the-lights-amus.

When you get the box set, this is good but I wouldn’t try otherwise.
