The most {{squick}}y and [[NightmareFuel fearsome]] depictions of his savagery would have been a bit much for live-action, even by late Harry Potter film standards. (The very fact that he favored [[ForceAndFinesse force over finesse]] and [[LightningBruiser was sufficiently adept at the former to fear practically no mage besides Dumbledore and Bellatrix]] might not have helped matters.) He resultingly has an extremely small role in the film version of the saga.

Watch her duel against Bellatrix Lestrange at the end: she was using nonverbal magic, but the spells she was throwing, or some of them at least, were green in color. Note as well that Bellatrix was laughing right until after the first such green spell Molly threw, after which Bellatrix got a shocked and frightened look on her face. She recognized the spell that Molly had just cast at her: the killing curse. And sure enough, Molly did kill her in that duel. Clearly Molly was going for the kill and was using the deadliest magic at her command, including the killing curse. It is a good lesson, when you think about it: DarkIsNotEvil, and some dark wizards and witches were good people and fought against Tom Riddle.

* This is why the Dementor on the train in PoA took so long to harvest Harry's soul. He has 1+ 1/8th soul. If he had two(somehow), the dementor would just take the one, and leave the second for a different dementor. When it's a fraction, it becomes difficult.

[[WMG: Dementors are dead Obscurials]]

I believe there is an undeniable connection between Obscurials and Dementors.

Firstly, recall what is said about an Obscurus in [[Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem FB1]]. The repressed magic of a young wizard is turned into a cancer, eating the life energy from the inside. How does it do that? By removing the soul, and taking its place.

Now imagine the dark force successfully possesses the wizard entirely, killing them. How would the body look like?

I think the body becomes a hollow shell, decaying slightly faster than a normal deceased wizard. While, the Obscurus with all its strength, retains the memory of their victim, taking a human shape.

This shape..is a Dementor. Hence why they take all the happiness from people. They are replacing what was taken from them while they were living. And they are lacking a soul, which is why they depend on getting one.

* I know it was just the actor speaking the first curse that came to mind, but since it's such a common fan complaint, how about this for an in-universe explanation. Many have pointed out that film-Lucius' attempted use of an unforgivable curse right outside Dumbledore's office at the end of ''Chamber of Secrets'' is out of character as it would almost certainly get him sent to Azkaban... if he used it on a human being. Killing a house-elf, however might have gotten him a slap on the wrist at best, and killing Dobby in front of him would have been the perfect way of putting Harry in his place for the stunt with the sock. Dobby (and presumably Harry as well) misinterprets Lucius' intended target and springs to what he thinks is Harry's defense, and nothing more is said of it.
