The conclusion of the fifth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, also known as HPMOR, is said to be the last one for the series. However, when it comes to movie ratings, there's not much to be surprised about: it has the highest rating ever.
This conclusion is not surprising: the ending of the first movie in the Harry Potter franchise was revealed with such a drastic twist that it left many people confused. Many critics believe that the book series is similar to Lord of the Rings' Tolkien's novels. Indeed, they say that Harry Potter is about Aragorn, a member of the Fellowship of the Ring, and who fights against the forces of evil.
In the movie, Voldemort rises to become a powerful wizard after he is killed by the Sorcerer's Stone. He had survived the first movie in a cave, where he hid. Eventually, Dumbledore finds him and explains to him that the prophecy about destroying the world will be fulfilled if he does not fight for good.
However, Voldemort wants to conquer the world, and all wizards and witches must stop him. However, he managed to defeat Dumbledore, and now it is up to Harry to find a way to defeat him. When Harry finds a Ring in the Mirror of Erised, the two of them managed to defeat him. The story ends with the statement that he will destroy the world and destroy the wizarding world, although that might change at the future, as Dumbledore hasn't completely taken the Ring away from him yet.
But what made this movie better than the others? The answer lies in the story's change of the rules. After Voldemort's defeat, there are no rules anymore: wizards, witches, and even Dementors can live with each other. When Harry gets the Philosopher's Stone, he can now use it on his friends, and the Dementors will accept him, as long as he promises to make them forget what happened to them.
This change of rules seems to be the reason why the movie gets higher ratings than the other ones. As far as popularity goes, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is simply second place. The other movies have less influence, because nobody knows much about them.
Even though the differences between Harry Potter and the other movies seem so small, they create some exciting new developments, and movie producers thought about making some video game adaptations. The video game has already been adapted by Warner Brothers, and the rest of the producers will soon follow suit. In this way, fans of the books will be able to choose their favorite story as a choice for their games.
Unlike most of the muggle movies, the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 doesn't try to promote a specific side of Harry Potter, but simply bring the story to a conclusion. For those who haven't read the books, this is surely the best way to finish the series.
