      I am a huge fan of Harry Potter, both the movies and the books. I was disappointed when the film showing was moved to this year but was still excited for the 6th installment of the novel by JK Rowling.

      Half Blood Prince revolves around the emergence in power of the Death Eaters, Voldemort’s followers. Many dark events, disappearances and mishaps are happening throughout the magic world and Hogwarts, though no longer safe, was still the safest place to be. This movie also shows who is the half blood prince and the role he is portraying.

      The flow of the story quite resembles that of the book which the fans, including myself, really


      appreciated. One thing that I like about this movie is that it is successful in creating the tension all throughout the movie. It was not too dark, yes, but the anxiety it created was there. And it was neither exaggerated nor understated, it was just right.

      It was such a nice sight to see all the characters reprising the role. They played better, they give different auras which is perfect for their roles. The emotions were all showed well – the happiness, grievances and all that were delivered perfectly.

      The movie, aside from being dark, is also full of humorous scenes. Ron Weasley, played by Rupert Grint, was a spot-on comedian. He never ...


      • failed to make the crowd laugh. There was also a lot of growing up in the movie. From the start to finish, the movie seems to explore the teenage life, especially the love lives of the characters. Though it adds fun for the movie, I couldn’t help but wonder why there are a lot of Harry-Ginny scenes. Sure, it was in the book, but I guess there were scenes that were kind of awkward and out of place. This pairing’s not-so-nice appearance was, fortunately, outshined by the Ron-Hermione and Harry-Hermione scenes.

        One thing that I didn’t like about the movie is the Death Eaters’ appearances. Though it was compensated by the good

        portrayal of Draco Malfoy, played by Tom Felton, it still seems lacking. The Death Eaters only has a few appearances and as a Death Eater fan myself, especially that of Bellatrix Lestrange, I find it quite disappointing. But the most disappointing thing about the movie is the ending. The book’s ending was magnificently written and I can say that everyone was looking forward to that but the movie definitely didn’t do justice with that.

        Overall, the movie was another successful adaptation of the book. Though I have some wary moments while watching, the long wait was all worth it. The movie was good and I am sure that Harry Potters fans would appreciate it.
