Finally seen them all and this is easily the best out of the series due to it's sinister adult themes.The characters have matured and become complex as have the stakes that have been thrust upon them. It allows us to truly empathize with them like we haven't really had before. Not a perfect series out of 8 films. Only half of them were noteworthy but an interesting ride nonetheless.
The best films of the rather bland franchise by far. Splitting the finale into two parts finally allows the characters to breathe and there's finally a sense of atmosphere and mystery. Its obviously the darkest and most adult of the series but few have mentioned how wonderfully "silent" it is for the most part.
