The end. What more could be said about one of the most popular franchises of all time? The final Harry Potter movie is a fitting end to a series that started 10 years ago.

Just like Harry Potter himself, the story has grown from being young and innocent to something more mature and meaningful. It comes full circle with not only Harry, but with some of the most recognizable characters. You will be pleasantly surprised to find out there is much more to this tale than one magical boy's journey.

This movie is an exciting ride that ties up many loose ends and concludes in way that leaves you completely satisfied.

Grim and yet hopeful, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" is the most satisfying end to a series a fan could hope for.

In this final riveting chapter, the battle between good and evil turns to all out war, and the students of Hogwarts face it head on with steely determination.

We can't help but to cry for those who are lost and pray for those who are still fighting, but its heartening final note of hope and renewal provides an altogether fitting finale. And as Harry said to Voldemort in their final confrontation, "Let's finish the way we started -- together."

Part Two of "The Deathly Hallows" is the epitome of the perfect ending. Even a person who had never seen the previous movies could follow the good versus evil storyline of the movie. Every single actor/actress in the movie is spot-on spectacular. They are able to capture the audience's attention from the very start and keep us mesmerized to the very end.

One can't help but leave this movie with a Harry Potter high. This film deserves a standing ovation because words cannot do it justice.

Harry Potter is the must-see film of the summer.
