Don't worry. This isn't a spoiler post. This is just my personal opinion of the movie, and I've read it through to make sure that I haven't given anything away about what actually happens in the movie. However, if you would prefer not to read the opinions of others before you see the movie for yourself, then you may want to avoid reading this post.
Last chance to change your mind about reading this post.
Oh, you do want to read it?
Are you sure?
So, what was my opinion of the movie?
Well, as a movie in itself it was really good. I enjoyed it, Kelly enjoyed it, Wayne enjoyed it, and at least most of the extremely packed cinema enjoyed it (if the laughter during the movie, and excited talk after the movie are anything to go by, lol!). ;)
However, Kelly, Wayne and I agreed on something that stops me from saying the movie was "excellent."
You see, while it was a really good movie, it differed from the book a lot. The plot was the same, obviously (it would have to be for it to have the title). But I have to say this is the furthest I have ever seen any of the Harry Potter movies stray from the book. And one scene had us thinking, "what the...?" Because it certainly wasn't in the book. Like I said though, it was a really good movie. But only if you look at it as the movie it is rather than the book brought to life on the big screen. So, my advice to you is... Don't refresh your memory on what happens in the book before you watch the movie, because you'll enjoy the movie more if you can't remember the details of the book clearly.
