The plot darkens for Harry Potter 

The Hogwarts kids grow up as the end is near for the Potter flicks.

The heroes of Hogwarts are all grown up in the penultimate installment of the wizard series. A good thing, too, since Dumbledore’s dead, Voldemort’s on a terror spree and Harry, Ron and Hermione are on the run in the countryside. This is the first of the Potter movies not to use the school year as a narrative backdrop---Hogwarts hardly figures in at all---and it’s also the darkest yet, its shadowy cinematography representing a vibe that veers between violent and melancholy. Even the relationship stuff is downbeat, with a romantic triangle threatening to wedge apart the three superfriends. There’s some first-rate action, particularly in the early going, but the film suffers for being a preamble to next year’s finale. It’s a table-setter, not a self-contained movie.
