The Harry Potter books and films are more than popular; they’ve spawned a wizard-themed amusement park, introduced new words (like “Muggle,” “apparate” and “quidditch”) into the popular vernacular and inspired pop art and culture.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2″ marks the end of a decade of The Boy Who Lived on the big screen, and by many accounts the final film in the magical franchise has lived up to the hype; the movie was hailed by many critics as the best of the eight installments in the series, and its creators received an outpouring of love from fans across the globe.

Here at Hero Complex, we counted down to the film’s theater release with exclusive interviews, photo galleries and apps. Now that the spoiler-wary have had a chance to see “Deathly Hallows — Part 2″ in theaters, here’s a look back at our coverage leading up to its release.

    This movie was WONDERFUL!!!!!!! I cried so much in it, but it was BEAUTIFUL!!! Truly a commendable adaption of the beloved novel. True, you understand everything better if you’ve read the books, but regardless, it was a complete masterpiece! Everyone involved should he so proud that eight movies later, they’ve not only retained their stellar performances and accuracy, but raised the bar with each film and surpassed expectations at the very end of the eight part movie serie. There couldn’t be a better ending! Both parts do the book justice very well, and, I admit, surpassed my expectations. Tue acting of every single character is phenomenal!! The score is beautiful-
    Alexandre Desplat brought us home emotionally with a
    score more emotionally riveting than any in this series
    so far. I can’t even listen to the score with dry eyes!
    Both parts were brilliant and I can’t wait to see them
    together!! Thanks to everyone in this amazing cast and crew and everyone who was involved for bringing the most beloved boy’s story to life. Thanks to J.K. Rowling, for giving us an adventure full of love, excitement, joys and sorrow, trials and triumphs. We will never forget Harry Potter. It’s the perfect ending as we say goodbye to our beloved heroes. We will always remember this phenomenal ending to this once-in-a-lifetime journey that J.K. Rowling and Harry took us on. If you don’t love Harry, nothing about this will change your mind. But if you do, you will LOVE this.

    Practicing Black Magic is a immorality sin……Real Sin you all work for the Devil……..

    • lisa says:

      you should brush up on your grammar…and get a reality check. harry potter is a series of novels/movies made as a source of entertainment for millions of fans. not some devil worship manual like so many religious nuts make it out to be

    • KaranJC says:

      Lisa is right… Harry Potter is a source of entertainment and fantastical escape from the stress of the real world. Black magic? Are u kidding me? Its a novel, its not telling u to do some horrible ritual orr anything. In fact, Harry is opposing Dark magic, so get ur facts straight. U religious nut jobs want to make every non-issue an issue jst to bring attention to urselves. Harry Potter is better than all of u put together can ever be… Get over it.
