November 19, 2010 |  3:05 pm


The critics have all had their say and most find "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" a generally satisfying adventure, if a tad unwelcoming to the uninitiated. But that's the critics. Now that the film has been seen by the general public (or at least those willing to stay out until after 3 a.m. on a school night), it's time to assess the response of the true heart of the "Harry Potter" franchise — the fans.

Below, we've grouped responses into lovers and complainers. Which one are you?

Beware: some spoilers follow.
