Captain Sourpuss Reviews HP 7 II
(2) The fact that the film appeared to have been shot through a dirty beer bottle. The lighting was so bad that I could hardly recognize most of the characters, much less see what they were doing.
(3) The climactic showdown between Harry and Voldy. The bang-bang nonsense sucked all the drama out of their confrontation.
(4) The narrative compression required to make this the shortest HP movie. I don't see how anyone not deeply initiated could figure out what was happpening.
I also didn't care for the treatment of Snape's memories. This is a lovely episode in the book - not so much in the movie.
Yates made one good movie (VI) and four bad ones.
