A thrilling cocktail of gloomy mystery and comical growing pains, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is easily the best of the six films in the series so far, even if it’s the one in which very little happens in terms of actual plot development and crucial incidents.Complaints against the plot and against the omission of several incidents from the book feel redundant when you look the film as a whole. For followers of the franchise, this is potent stuff and a very worthy companion piece to the rest. I’m going with two thumbs up and four out of five for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Directed remarkably by David Yates, this is exactly what fans have been waiting for.

The film scores heavily in terms of its scintillating cinematography (Bruno Delbonnel), its edgy atmospherics and its straight-from-the-book histrionics. The actors truly live-out the characters, so meticulously created by JK Rowling. The high point of the film are it’s fresh and juicy moments of adolescent madness, where our young wizards try to cope with the turbulence of normal teenage years. Almost poignant! Keep the series up to date. Don’t give this a miss, all you teens and adult-teens.

The new film directed by David Yates is even darker than the previous installments but it is also has plenty of teen romance. The convoluted plot twists may baffle some who have not read the J K Rowling book but the film is expected to be a giant hit, thanks to the universal popularity of the books. It also offers an atmospheric drama, a few thrilling scenes, and several heartfelt moments too. But many could find the climax a letdown.

David Yates’ sixth instalment is probably the darkest of the Potter films so far as suspense builds up right from the beginning and keeps you engaged throughout. Harry’s mind-reading abilities, suspense that is build up and then partially unravelled towards the end forces one to wait and watch for will Harry be able to destroy Voldemort. (The mighty enemy does not make an appearance in this one).’Harry Potter and the Half Blood prince’ has romance, intrigue, suspense, action – indeed a magical experience. A must watch!

The cinematography scores hugely in this film – managing to create the ominous mood (by Bruno Delbonnel) without once showing Potter’s nemesis on screen.The plot of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is by now well known and much read. It follows Harry, Hermione and Ron as they plunge into yet another year of adventure taking on the most powerful wizard of all time. Half-Blood Prince also tells explores the relationship between Potter and Albus Dumbledore.At two hours and 33 minutes though, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince can seem tad too long. But then again can we ever get enough of the young wizard and his friends? Probably not…It’s a Harry Potter movie for god sake. Can it ever go wrong?
