Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie review

Another year at Hogwart’s for Harry played by Daniel Radcliffe; Ron played by Rupert Grint; and Hermione played by Emma Watson for the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This time though the movie is scarier since Hogwart’s is becoming more and more mysterious and dark. The half-blood prince’s book of potions is in Harry’s hands and Draco Malfoy is behaving quite absurd and odd lately. The movie also looks for Voldemort’s soul which was scattered all over the world while Harry and the rest of the gang looks for it and encounters surprising battles along the way. However, the good news is that everyone is falling in love or is that a bad news?

A lot of Harry Potter readers said that this book is their favorite book out of the entire sequel. This puts a lot of pressure to the movie as well. However, the movie does not disappoint—that is compared with the other Harry Potter movies. Unfortunately, when you really compare the movie with the book, it still fails to fill in every detail in the film, even if the movie ran for approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes. The movie is a little confused in terms of sewing all the pieces together with the different scenes. The biggest problem with the movie is the ending. The ending needs a little more action because it was blah. It was not spectacular but it was just okay. The ticket you will spend for it is 70-30 worth it.

On the good side, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, in terms of performances by lead actors Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson are more matured. Draco played by Tom Felton did not disappoint too. The movie also had the good combination of magic, mystery and romance.
