Drama/Adventure: A teenage wizard and his friends head toward the climactic conclusion of their quest to find and destroy dark magic objects that contain parts of the soul of their increasingly powerful arch-nemesis in this eighth and final installment of the "Harry Potter" series.
In this eighth and final installment of the "Harry Potter" series, Hogwarts has been taken over by Professor Severus Snape (ALAN RICKMAN) who works for Lord Voldemort (RALPH FIENNES), as does Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange (HELENA BONHAM CARTER). Voldemort, who now possesses the powerful Elder Wand, wants Harry Potter (DANIEL RADCLIFFE) dead so that he can have complete world domination. Conversely, the boy wizard and his friends and fellow students, Hermione Granger (EMMA WATSON) and Ron Weasley (RUPERT GRINT), have made it their quest to stop and ultimately kill Voldemort.

To do so, they need to find and destroy the remaining objects -- known as Horcruxes, which contain part of Voldemort's soul -- to defeat the evil Lord. Accordingly, they must return to Hogwarts where they receive help from Professors Minerva McGonagall (MAGGIE SMITH) and Horace Slughorn (JIM BROADBENT), while Harry still has a connection of sorts to the deceased Professor Albus Dumbledore (MICHAEL GAMBON). They also receive assistance from fellow students Neville Longbottom (MATTHEW LEWIS), Luna Lovegood (EVANNA LYNCH) and Harry's girlfriend, Ginny (BONNIE WRIGHT), while another student, Draco Malfoy (TOM FELTON), continues to be his nemesis.

With Voldemort and his army on their way to destroy Hogwarts and kill Harry Potter, the young wizard and his friends race against time to destroy the Horcruxes and, in doing so, Voldemort himself.

If they're fans of the "Potter" movies and/or books, that's a definite yes.
For some sequences of intense action violence and frightening images.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
