Perhaps this is the best place to review the series as well as the last installment. We have seen Daniel Radcliffe mature from a fairy bad actor to one that is fairly convincing, particularly in his standing up to Aberforth Dumbledore. Emma Watson has gone from awkward kid who wore her emotions on her sleeve to Maxim's top 100 Hottest women. The passing of Richard Harris was a major let down to the series as Michael Gambon couldn't really fill his shoes. The most interesting and complex character was that of Snape. Alan Rickman made the series with his portrayal. The casting of the quirky minor characters made the story most enjoyable, all the way down to Mrs. Fink. Rowling's use of classical mythology, astronomy and the occult made the series an incredible educational experience. One of my favorite characters was the under used Luna Lovegood. She was a breath of fresh air.

The direction of Chris Columbus was by far the best as well as the screen adaptations, which more closely followed the books. Starting with the third installment, the audience got short changed (There, I said it) especially those who didn't read the books...such as myself. This wasn't a bad thing as it led to a bonding with my niece who did read the books and I would take her to the films so she could explain them to me. Like Hermione, she is one of those "insufferable know-it-alls" who loves to let you know what she knows. (Good luck with that brain surgeon thing.)

In this final episode, the gang of 3 go after the remaining Horcrux(s) which are now easier to locate than in the last 2 films. This one follows the later films in that it lacks the humor of the earlier ones.

The movie, like the series drives home the ideas of teamwork, friendship, and courage. Goblins, spiders, troll, elves, death eaters, a dragon, and of course he who we do not speak. Personally, I would have done the ending differently, especially with Snape and Malfoy. But I don't want to discuss any possible plot spoilers.

It would have been a nice edition for a nice film if it was not for the PS3 game demo.
It's not all blu ray player that can read that type of disc.
You see, for made it possible to have a ps3 demo on the disc, they had to made it a ps3 disc and not a regular video blu-ray disc. After this kind of disc have been created, a lot of blu ray players had a patch for making them compatible with a regular blu ray player and not a ps3 but not all of them It was not the case for the player I used at the time (I replaced it since).
Fortunatly, the demo is on the second disc, but to not have the possibility to access the special features can of defeat the purpose of a special edition. If your blu ray player is not from one of the huge and well know company like Sony or Toshiba, do not buy this blu ray, take the regular edition, unless you have a friend that got this edition and burrough it just to test if the second disc work.
