Way, way, way too serious. Not fun – and not *British*! Other than the butterbeer, all the charm is bleached from this film and we spend the whole time drowning in mythos with Tom Riddle hiding his soul and people looking at each other’s memories. And I have no idea what that whole business with Dumbledore drinking a the potion out of that shell in the cave was all about.
And after 5 movies of Snape seeming like a bad guy but actually being good – turns out he was actually bad this whole time? And it doesn’t even get sprung on us – we learn it at the beginning? Like it was an off-season decision or something?
