Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Movie Review
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has a little bit of everything: action, sorrow, jealousy, romance and humor. Kidzworld reviews the 6th Harry Potter film.
Based on the bestselling novel by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince brings a little bit of everything to the big screen, from action and tragedy to romance and jealousy. Harry Potter 6 is a masterpiece.
The Dark Lord has returned to power and he’s sending death eaters to do his bidding, killing innocent muggles in the process. Voldemort has recruited a new death eater this year, one with an eye on the inside of Hogwarts—Draco Malfoy. Malfoy battles with his fears and sense of duty as he helps Voldemort’s sidekicks infiltrate the highly-protected school. And Severus Snape has made an Unbreakable Vow to protect him and help him finish his dark job.
A Peak into the Past
Meanwhile, Dumbledore is showing Harry memories of his past—memories of Tom Riddle (a.k.a Voldemort). Harry is the chosen one, and only he can kill the Dark Lord. But in order to do so, he needs the answers that lay in one of the new potion master's memories. Unfortunately, Professor Slughorn is not so willing to give it up.
This film isn’t all about grim deeds and death tolls. Harry and his pals are caught up in a few romantic battles. The movie makes Ron and Hermione’s inevitable romance way more obvious than the book. Hermione is so jealous of Ron’s new clingy, sappy girlfriend, Lavender, that she can’t hide her anger or tears. Meanwhile, Ginny is dating Dean Thomas, much to Harry’s grief. But when that relationship fizzles, Ginny turns all her attention to Harry.
The Bottom Line
Each Harry Potter film seems to be better than the last. And Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is no exception. The filmmakers and cast nailed it, combining love, drama, death and TONS of laugh-your-pants-off humor.
