Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


So, I went and saw the sixth installment in the Harry Potter series last night. And I’m never disappointed. I sat in line to see the film on the movie theatre floor for about and hour, and then another fourty minutes after being seated in the theatre. This is to be expected on opening night at 7pm. What I really love about Harry Potter is how diverse the audience is, spanning from every age range, both genders and such varied ethnic backgrounds. It truly does go across all boundaries…. anyways……..

The movie itself is truly spectacular. The cinematography is top notch and the movie is visually stunning. The actors, I especially love Rupert Grint, (Ron), are great and have really grown in the roles. They are believeable as the characters because they have been growing up along with their characters. There are many laugh out loud moments in the film because it focuses a lot on adolescent relationships. Magic + hormones is going to make for laughs. The film is also dark in a way I don’t think the others have been.

I think this is the best Potter flick to date. I also think you could see this movie on its own without seeing the other five and still enjoy it.  I absolutely loved it! 🙂

Bottomline: Go see it, Potter fan or not! There is something for everyone in this film.
