New Movie Reviews: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,' Sarah Palin's 'Undefeated,' 'Winnie the Pooh' Hitting Theaters

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
Warner Bros.

Wondering which film to go see this weekend? Check out what THR's critics say about all the new movies.

Harry Potter, the most successful movie franchise ever, is coming to an end after eight movies in 10 years. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, directed by David Yates, stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

Meanwhile, little kids are targeted with the Disney animated feature Winnie the Pooh. The music is sung by Zooey Deschanel, while Jim Cummings, Craig Ferguson, John Cleese and Tom Kenny lent their voices for the movie.

Also opening is The Undefeated, a partisan documentary about  Alaska's ex-governor Sarah Palin.

See what The Hollywood Reporter's critics have to say about those films -- and others opening this weekend.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Bottom Line: An outstanding capper to the most lucrative film franchise of all time.

Winnie the Pooh
Bottom Line:
Little kids will enjoy the gentle, lovingly wrought resuscitation of A.A. Milne's characters, while parents will be thankful for the thoughtfully brief running time.

Life, Above All
Bottom Line:
German-born director Oliver Schmitz takes on the subject of AIDS in South Africa without kowtowing to western images of Africa in this somewhat simplistic drama.

An emotionally powerful tale of two sets of Chinese women in two different centuries.

Lucky
Bottom Line:
Nothing is bleaker than failed black comedy, which this is.

The Undefeated
Bottom Line:
A partisan piece stitched together using positive sound bites about Sarah Palin that will get media attention simply for its subject, though it isn't a must-see film by any means.

Salvation Boulevard
Bottom Line:
Silly cat-and-mouse comedy doesn't make much of its evangelist-mocking premise.

Tabloid
Bottom Line:
A once lurid, now forgotten British scandal gets resurrected in this entertaining but narrowly focused doc from Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris.
