I’ve been wanting to see this movie pretty much since the year began. I even read the book again just to refresh my memory. In just the first minute of the film, one could tell that this would present a dark side of the trilogy compared to the 2 movies before it. I was happy to once again see the movie version not stray far from the book. The length is a bit over 2 hrs, but it seemed to go by pretty fast, especially with all of the action scenes (which were awesome, btw). My only concern was where they would cut off the first part. No spoilers here, but they did pick a good place to do it. Of course, it’s a cliffhanger, but not anything to make the viewer wonder, “Why would they end it here?” Still, it’s a two part film, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this series come to a close on the big screen.
