‘Deathly Hallows’ Finale Opens

The eighth and final chapter in the epic Harry Potter franchise has opened to the public. Director David Yates’s 130-minute swan song to the Boy Who Lived corresponds to the last third of author J.K. Rowling’s seventh book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” Much of the film is an extended battle sequence, as Harry, Ron, Hermione and their allies battle the evil Lord Voldemort in a final magical struggle. Thousands of fans packed theaters at midnight, eager to see the closing moments of the Harry Potter saga. Review aggregator Metacritic.com gives the film an 87 out of 100, the highest ranking for any of the Harry Potter movies. On that site, the last Harry Potter film to receive marks nearly as high was director Alfonso Cuarón’s “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” in 2004. Yates took over directorial control of the series with 2007′s “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”/Nick Andersen, Wall Street Journal. More here. (AP photo)
