As Lord Voldemort tightens his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds, Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven. Harry suspects perils may even lie within the caslte, but Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent), whom he believes holds crucial information. Even as the decisive showdown looms, romance blossoms for Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), Hermione (Emma Watson) and their classmates. Love is in the air, but danger lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.
The plot is getting old or is it me?
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince review by BL
It was OK but I just think the plot is now well worn and all the magic tricks available will no longer revive it. Also I think as the characters age and love/longing rears its head it loses its innocence. This may,of course,be due to the fact that I am well into adulthood and perhaps look to deeply for something this epic tale will never produce. I am sure the younger generation will be more bullish.

The Best So Far
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince review by Jawbreaker
In spite of its running time The Half-Blood Prince is the best instalment in the Potter series so far. We follow the principle characters as they face coming of age, relationships, love and their destiny. This is an air of darkness and foreboding through the film as Potter begins to appreciate what it means to be the chosen one. The film is helped by a strong British cast of familiar faces as we venture ever closer to the series finale.
