Peter and Nick took me to see this at two AM. The beginning had some pretty good 3D effects (it was at the IMAX) and I kind of wanted the whole move to be that way. I think this was my favorite of the movies, as it really focused on inter-character relationships. This was also the reason half the theater hated it. If you are a real HP fan, and read the books, then you would appreciate it. If, however, you've just seen the movies and were looking for action, then prepare to be disappointed as even the climatic, action-packed ending was rather anti-climatic due to lack of action.
