This movie was unlike all of the 4 previous terminator movies. It didn't have the same feel, the storyline wasn't as clear as the others and i didn't feel like after the movie was over that everything had been explained. There were some scenes where you may have been confused if you hadn't seen the previous movies, but not really.

At times it was kind of interesting, kind of exciting, and kind of funny. But overall... just average.

So it gets 5 thumbs up

I've been saying for years that zack galifianakis is super funny and in this movie he was by far the best part. Here he is on his fake cable access show between two ferns

I know this is a crazy concept but funny characters and well written storyline equals a great movie...ya nuts i know. I'd definitely watch this again.

Oh and by the way, the credits at the end are basically X-rated. I don't know how they got away with that.

Super funny the whole way through, it gets 8 out of 10

This was my favorite book out of all of them so i was pretty excited to see it. I have to say that visually this was one of the greatest movies ever. It reminded me a lot of the Lord of the Rings movies in how it just looked amazing. They were able to cram a lot of the storyline from the book into the 2-1/2 hour movie. Though it did seem kind of confusing at times. For example in the book it might have a whole chapter where it described harry going to see dumbledore, why he was going, how he felt. The movie just skipped to the key part then hopped ahead. But i guess basically all movies do that or else it would be 9 hours long. It just seemed like they rushed to cram everything in.

Also the movie lacked a lot of action. The suspense leading up to the final scene in the book was awesome, but the movie didn't really have that same excitement. When the movie was over it felt more like just a lead up to the final movie and less like the story i remembered.

Actually these are all kind of nitpicking comments on the movie. It
was actually really great and i think if i watch it a second time it will be even better. But like i said, this was my favorite book of them all so i guess i just had very high hopes. Although the day that harry takes "felix felicis" was the funniest thing i had ever seen in any harry potter movie.

So visually it was an absolute 10 but overall it still scored a very high 9

Oh and by the way, according to mugglenet.com, it is confirmed that the final book Deathly Hallows will be split into 2 movies. I think that's great, instead of having to cut or shorten scenes, now they can make two 3 hour movies and have everything in full detail.
