They definitely emphasized that duel, and it paid off. While the special effects were really good, the believable acting is what really makes that scene worthwhile.

I noticed the same producers followed a similar setup with their Dumbledore v. Grindelwald video "The Greater Good" (the Snape and the Marauders film led me to this one). Lots of neat visuals, but the acting was spot-on to make it all seem believable. I imagine that's a pretty tough thing to do when dealing with so many special effects.

But, overall, I'd agree with sirena: good visuals and overall well done, but the story is really just Snape-centric fan fiction that doesn't really jive with canon. Not that there's anything wrong with that, though!
