Why Harry Potter VII isn’t Harry Potter anymore


I never considered myself a fan of the Harry Potter series and books, I’m not into magic at all and I didn’t play all the Harry Potter games. And here I am, talking about the latest Harry Potter movie which I had the chance to see today.

You probably wonder what’s with the title…well did you see Deathly Hallows? If you didn’t just hurry up and hit the cinema. If you did see it, read carefully. You could end up having the same ideas as me.

First of all, if a story is told in more than one movie, here intervenes the inevitable character evolution.

You just have to realize that everything about these characters has changed, from heroes to villains and backwards.

And it’s not only the thing that they’ve grown up and are more sensitive to the surrounding world. Friendships are meant to last but they can be unstable when doubt and other effects of the dark side come into play. Especially when a girl is involved [spoiler – the case of Harry and Ron for example].

Why Harry Potter ain’t Harry Potter no more? Well the answer is quite simple. The previous movies didn’t offer the audience a big percentage of dramatism like this one did.

And I’m not referring only to the death of some characters but also to the struggle of them as a whole in order to keep Voldemort and his minions away. From pain and suffering you shall receive eternal gratitude.

It may be a fantasy tale but it is close to our reality…[the scene when Harry and Hermione are left alone after Ron decides to leave the group having his mind darkened – Harry tries to bring a little joy into Hermione’s mind by inviting her to dance – I’ve seen that many times and I understood that even in shady times you can catch a glimpse of the sunshine].

So, with so much changed elements you can’t say this movie ain’t good – it’s probably better than the previous three. And the whole story of the Deathly Hallows is a good one. Besides that we must thank the director, David Yates for creating a masterpiece.
