According to disappointed fans, the film, due to be released on July 17, made key characters and plot-lines vanish from author J K Rowling's best-seller. “The film is dominated by romance Ron with Lavender Brown, Ginny with Dean Thomas, Hermione's growing love for Ron, Ron's potion-affected desire for Romilda Vane, and ultimately Harry and Ginny," the Sun quoted a fan as saying.
Another one said: “Anyone who has read the book will be severely disappointed." Scenes in the movie, particularly the death of a major character, left fans enraged with the way it was handled. A fan said: “It partially blows what may be the biggest surprise of the entire franchise."
Another one added: “The last third of this movie is so incredibly mishandled the death feels more like an unfortunate accident than genuine tragedy."
