Movie synopsis
J.K. Rowling's sixth novel about the boy wizard appears on screen in this film from David Yates, the director of HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson are back as the beloved Hogwarts students, and Oscar winner Jim Broadbent joins the cast as Horace Slughorn., Though HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN director Alfonso Cuaron still holds the crown for best film in the series, David Yates is making an attempt at a coup with HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE. Dark, gleefully funny, and beautifully shot, this adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novel should please fans despite numerous changes to the 650-page source material. In this sixth film in the series, Harry’s (Daniel Radcliffe) inevitable confrontation with the dark wizard Voldemort grows closer, and Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) wants the young student to be prepared. He guides Harry through a memory of a young Voldemort, but an important moment is missing. Harry must extract this memory from the new Hogwarts teacher, Horace Slughorn (a perfectly slimy Jim Broadbent), who is as eager for fame as he is reluctant to revisit this painful moment. Meanwhile, romance rules the school of witches and wizards, with Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) refusing to admit their feelings for each other. Harry also harbors a secret love of his own: Ron’s younger sister, Ginny (Bonnie Wright). But despite his crush, Harry keeps an eye on Snape (Alan Rickman) and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton), who may be responsible for attacks on the school. HALF-BLOOD PRINCE deftly balances the humor of Hogwarts heartbreak and the thrills of dark villains attacking the school. The cast is as talented as ever, and the youngest members--Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson--have developed their talent well. However, this film is most remarkable for its fine cinematography from AMELIE director of photography Bruno Delbonnel. Using a muted palette, Delbonnel makes Hogwarts look hauntingly beautiful in a way that fans have never seen. There’s always plenty of fun and adventure in the series, but this entry boasts impressive visuals as well.

Editorial reviews

4.5 stars out of 5 -- "With Harry, Ron and Hermione feeling the pangs of love and ominous signs that the final battle is nearing, this is the most spectacular and richly satisfying POTTER movie yet, topping all that have come before it."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (07/06/2009)

"Composer Nicholas Hooper, cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel and designer Stuart Craig deliver a singularly muscular and vigorous chapter while all the visual and digital effects have now blended seamlessly into the package."
Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt (07/05/2009)

"[T]he three leads, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, give their most charming performance to date....HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, with its romantic triangle, its Quidditch high jinks, its gorgeous production design and its bang-up final action sequence, might be the most enjoyable Harry Potter movie yet..."
Washington Post (07/14/2009)

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[S]pellbinding....The cinematography is stunning, and the story unfolds in a stately and unhurried fashion."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (07/14/2009)

"Yates in his second Potter film seems more comfortable with the franchise. He's turned out to be what the series has always felt it needed, a good steward of the material who is respectful of the novels but not overly reverential."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (07/14/2009)

3 stars out of 5 -- "Bumbling, funny and gentle, the rom-com tween heartache feels nicely played by a cast more at home with cheeky humour than dramatic heavy-lifting."
Total Film - Jonathan Crocker (07/07/2009)

"Dazzlingly well made...this one is played in a mode closer to palpable life-or-death drama than any of the others and is quite effective as such."
Variety - Todd McCarthy (07/05/2009)

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Harry is better than ever, a triumph of wonder and emotional storytelling....All the actors excel at pulling us into the film's mysteries."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (07/14/2009)

"[T]he filmmakers have found a way to refresh our eyes and enhance our appreciation for this rich, amazing creation." -- Grade: A-
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (07/24/2009)

3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his sixth chapter is a darker, more ominous Harry Potter film....It opens and closes well, and has wondrous art design and cinematography as always..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (07/12/2009)

"Yates is generous with this ensemble, and they repay him with interest....[The cinematographer] makes gorgeous, Oscar-worthy panoramas of everything from impromptu tarantula memorials to handheld-shot, nightmare battles in tall, swampy grass."
Movieline - Zinat S. (07/15/2009)

"[T]hose involved will find that the series has matured much as the books did. This is the darkest, saddest, most sophisticated HARRY POTTER film yet."
A.V. Club - Tasha Robinson (07/10/2009)

Keep the tots away from Harry

Ah, Harry Potter, a budget spiritual fantasy series. Although shallow as literature, Potter movies are certainly exciting, in fact, the special effects make them fantastic. The real problem with Harry is the movie's incitement toward witchcraft. If you're one of the 1 in 100 who step into these practices because of Harry's tempting stories, don't expect to finish well like he does. Real witchcraft leads to real evil, and people who get mixed up in it really change. "Years One to Five" is yet another doorway into a haunted, dark life. Better to stick with Frodo & Narnia. Keep the kids away from these movies.

Harry and Ron getting some

So the title up top is mostly what the movie is about. Harry and Ron spend most of their time trying to snog on some of nasty witches. But of course snice its a kids movie, no real rutting going on. But other than the magical trio groping at others in the dark, Harry must pry from a professor's head the secret to THE DARK LORD's death. But HE-WHO-MUST-NOT-BE-NAMED will not go gently into that good night, not without setting his newest deatheater on his task. Malfoy is sent with a mission. A mission known only to him, the DARK LORD, and the one binded by the unbreakable vow, SNAPE.

We enjoyed it

Good movie. It looked great in HD. The digital edition download code had expired by the time we purchased this disc. Not a problem for us. I was also a bit worried about how this BD would look because I had read reports of it being too dark. Although there were many scenes where it was dark (like when Harry and Dumbledore are in a cave) it was never too dark for my tastes.

Best Cinematography yet!

Spectacular! Just when you thought they couldn't top the last one. The continuation of the Harry Potter sequel not only brings you more up close and personal with the stars, (who are growing up very fast)but the special effects are beyond awesome. Seeing it in Blu-Ray is so vivid--you'll find yourself ducking the lightning bolts on your couch..it's so "in your face"..I highly recommend you experience this film on Blu-Ray..

Great Movie!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a great addition to the series. Plenty of action, mixed with some humor and a great in-depth story will keep anyone, even those who have not read the books, engrossed throughout the entire film.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a definite must have for any Harry Potter fan.
