At first, I thought the film was better than I remembered, but after an extremely compelling first half, the second act slows to an irritating halt and then becomes a cesspool of convenient storytelling by the conclusion. This was a problem throughout the series — especially when it wasn’t broken up by twists in the formula (like Goblet of Fire or Deathly Hallows), but it’s very prevalent here. 

Slow and plodding weaker entry in the franchise that’s okay, but disappointing by its conclusion and overly long.
