Harry finale: It's epic! Best of all

HARRY Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is probably the best Harry Potter movie yet.

This one really gets the audience interacting; there was so much clapping and cheering, but the word to describe it is epic.

The first Harry Potter book came out the year I was born, so I have grown up with Harry, and though it's sad to reach the end, I just see it as a chance to read the series all over again - which I do every time a new movie comes out. I've lost count of how many times I've read it now.

I'm actually quite surprised how they've done the book justice. Even though there were no massive surprises throughout the film they still managed to make it suspenseful - it was absolutely fantastic.

They've even included a scene close to the end that wasn't in the book (which I actually preferred to the written version) where Harry sneaks back into Hogwarts. It was a great moment.

This movie has lots of humour and funny scenes too, which I loved because most of the other movies were so dark.

I absolutely adored Mrs Weasley in this one; the scene where she is protecting her daughter Ginny from Bellatrix Lestrange is the only time in the whole series JK Rowling allows a character to swear.

Out of 10 I would give it nine and a half - it wasn't as long as I would have liked and I thought they could have elaborated on the epilogue, but I'm really happy with the overall outcome.

I went to the midnight premiere as Professor Snape, which surprised my friends because I'm such a Harry fan, but I thought they did Snape's character really well - and he just wears complete black so it was the easiest outfit to organise at short notice.

Poor Snape, everyone just assumed he was evil - he wasn't a nice character, he didn't have a nice personality, but he had a good heart.

I'm going to see it with friends again and I'll go as many times as I can afford this week (hint, hint dad).

It's been a massive journey but they've wrapped up the entire series perfectly and now all I want to do is get together with a bunch of friends and lots of crap food and have a Harry Potter marathon from start to finish.
