I walked out of the theater. It's that bad.
Alright, here we go. This movie, if it can even be called that, is really bad. The violence is so-so, there are a few tense and somewhat cringe-inducing scenes (a man gets a worm pulled out of his eye), and there is no inappropriate language or sexual scenes, which makes sense for a Harry Potter franchise breakout. But this movie is an A grade flop in every other sense. My sister and I walked out near the END of the movie because we were utterly confused and incredulous as to how anyone knew what was going on. There are about 8 different plots happening all at once, 10 to 15 characters you're supposed to follow and care about, and it erases everything interesting about the first movie. I am a die-hard Harry Potter fan and by the end of this movie, I didn't care a single bit about the characters that I once loved. This movie is TERRIBLY written and a mush of winding stories and confusing (not to mention never-ending) plot twists. Let this be a warning. It's safe for kids but if you like intriguing plots, character development, and quality entertainment, I would take your child to literally anything else.
