View Full Version : Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - My Review

Theater- AMC

It's my first time watching a Harry Potter movie from the theater, i went to see the 9:00 PM show and ends it around 12:15 AM. Wanted to see it from IMAX but all the tickets were sold out already. Anyway it's a great entertainer, no doubt. First of all, i have seen all the Harry potter movies and enjoyed them well. And i think personally Half blood prince was not worth the hype that it had; it doesn't mean i was disappointed, not at all. But if you have read the book and see it, then you may get disappointed. Because it has nothing to do with the book especially the ending. I haven't read the book yet, but i came to know from my friend that he has read all harry potter books and also a hardcore fan of harry potter. He went to see it with sky expectations at the first day itself (midnight show), but came back totally disappointed. On the other side, if you go and see it without reading the book or without any high expectations after reading the book, then of course you will like it for sure.

It's not a tight script actually. The whole movie lacks something, script maybe. The director given equal importance to everyone, but it's not going deeply into their characters or in other words the movie is more focusing on Harry and Dumbledore all the other characters did not have much to do. In summary, Harry and Dumbledore is trying to find a way to defeat the dark lord by going through Voldmort past, and at the same time Harry wants to know who is the Half Blood prince, mostly the movie is revolving around this. Even though it was an "okay" climax i was not really satisfied with it, not convincing either. I had expected a fight between Harry and the Death eaters at the end, but no nothing. Most people are looking forward to see the culprit at the end and maybe a fight as usual in harry potter movies, but here they failed miserably. If they would have been made it same like what was on the book then probably it would have been better.

Acting wise, as usual everyone did their roles well. Ron weasly was at his best in this movie i think, he did his role decently without any negatives to point out and better than his previous harry potter movies. The visuals, sceneries and the way they presented the movie was amazing especially the scene where the girl lifts up on the air, mind-blowing.Background music was also good as usual harry movies. Moreover you should see it from the theater to get the real feel. All together it's a great movie, but i can't consider this as the best harry potter movie.

My Verdict- Excellent.
