"Dark, thrilling, and occasionally quite funny, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (HP6) is also visually stunning and emotionally satisfying." This is what reviews speak about the HP6.
But for me it takes an overdose of magic potions to appreciate the movie. To be honest, this film is a huge disappointment and leads away from the feeling of the book in a huge way. The movie is supposed to be dark, disturbing and foreboding. It's supposed to act as a transitional film to the big finale. But its nothing but a powerful potion of adolescence
Things start interestingly enough, with Harry almost picking up a hot waitress in a diner, and Dumbledore spoiling the party. Sadly, the movie turns out to be, for the most part, a blasé look at Harry and friends starting to notice the opposite sex though .A subplot involving Ron Weasley and his emerging sex appeal is nothing but silly. Even worse, the normally enjoyable Hermione is left to do little but pout and whimper, and she rarely raises her mood above sombre. HP6 is an intoxicating potion of teenage hormones.
A major character says goodbye near the film's end. Given the importance of the character, I was expecting something historic. Instead, we get a scene that has little emotional impact.
With the madness of teenage hormone raging through out the movie, now "Wands out" has more than one meaning!
