Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
If I had to summarise the latest installment in the Harry Potter juggernaut in one, succinct word… snore!
I know I’m in a minority here in not praising the film, but when it finished I walked out thinking that I couldn’t wait for the final two installments, but also that I could quite easily have skipped this one and not missed a thing.
It isn’t that the film isn’t enjoyable, but nothing happens! The story just doesn’t contain a plot. We get to see some great acting from Alan Rickman, from Maggie Smith and even some enjoyable turns from the impish Daniel Radcliffe, but it isn’t enough to account for two hours of my time.
My final verdict – a fine watch, but only on DVD.
