Complete with a exclusive film cell, Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince just got that bit more magical. Hop on your broomstick and take a dark and troubling ride through the sixth chapter of the epic saga on Blu-ray, and behold the most emotional and explosive adventure yet.

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defences and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent), whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, as teen hormones rage across the ramparts, Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! That's not forgetting Hermione, simmering with jealousy but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Review

David Yates' adaptation of the sixth novel in J.K. Rowling's fantasy saga, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, explores Voldemort's dark past and the building romantic tensions within the hallowed halls of Hogwarts. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, the film welcomes back familiar British stalwarts Alan Rickman (Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves), Helena Bonham Carter (Tim Burton's Corpse Bride) and Robbie Coltrane (Stormbreaker) amongst other seasoned thesps. If you thought Harry Potter And The Order of the Phoenix darkened young Potter's adolescence then you ain't seen nothing yet...

Fans will be pleased to learn that director David Yates continues his fine work from Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix, and has even signed on to direct the two-part finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows due for release in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Yates perfectly captures the troubled teen romance of J.K. Rowling's magical secondary school whilst laying down some particularly dark and foreboding vibes for the epic conclusion. Radcliffe and the gang give career best performances, with Jim Broadbent (Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull) in magnificent form as the unwitting Professor Slughorn. Featuring the finest special effect seen in the series so far, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the most explosive, emotional entry yet, and we cannot wait for the sequel!

 The Best Since Azkaban

| | See all LukeSS's reviews (10)

Being a huge fan of this as a book, I was ready to scrutinise pretty much every change or scene skipped, and yes, they do skip and change a LOT of scenes. Nevertheless, their selection and filtration of these scenes were well thought through and plot relevant. Personally, I found this to be the funniest of the films to date - Jim Broadbent's Professor Slughorn, in particular, was a stroke of genius. The plot isn't thrilling but contains a lot of-important preparation for the final instalments, and director David Yates successfully keeps the film past-faced, funny, and entertaining throughout. A job well done.

 Harry Potter and the Half Blood Film

| | See all DVDjensen's reviews (139)

Once again Harry Potter returns to fight the evil Voldemort - wuhuu(!) - and ONCE again it is just a childrens' movie with no interesting twists. I still love the many little gimmicks which Harry uses though.

Once again (again) the story is only for people who have read the books. I have never opened a Harry Potter book, and like "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" I had a very hard time follow what the heck was going on. Names, places and gadgets are mentioned without getting explored and I'm SO sick and tired of "book"-movies that doesn't reach out to everybody.

The acting is even worse. Daniel Radcliffe might be a chick magnet, but he sure as H*** can't act! His three face expressions (happy, scared and stone face) make Harry Potter an indifferent and dull character. Rupert Grint is not given much as the part of Ron. In this movie he is turned into a giggling clown which only appears to crack off one liners. Even brilliant and hgih class actor Alan Rickman doesn't give Snape much life in this film either - his stone face is meant to be mysterious and scary, but also Rickman isn't given much to work with and I just found his character annoying. They even screwed up the climax in the end, and I ended up just thinking "Hm, yeah whatever."

Once again I am not impressed with the new Harry Potter film, but it is still a lot better than the previous one, though "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" never gets as good as number three ("Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban") which in my opinion is still the best.

Fairly enough I need to say that the special effects are FANTASTIC and saves the films from being a turkey.

 THE movie event of the summer

| | See all hmccni's reviews (2)

Sure to be THE movie event of the summer, this film will knock your socks off. I've saw it yesterday - first time I've ever seen a Potter film on the cinema release date and I'm so pleased I went. Whilst there are departures from the book - mostly unnecessary and some not in keeping with JK's timeline (e.g. opening attack on a bridge that would not have been in existence when JK set the book) the film does not suffer. It is a visually stunning movie, a feast for the eyes.

If we thought the characters were all grown up in Order of the Phoenix we see that they have progressed further into adolescence in Half-Blood Prince. Harry and his friends are on the cusp of adulthood, striving to control raging hormones whilst also worrying about the rise of the dark forces outside the school walls. In this film you will find wonderful performances from all the leads and the supporting cast as they perfectly convey their personal battles as well as their battle against Voldemort and his Death Eaters.

Malfoy's character gets padded out a little in this movie and we see more complexity in his struggle to see through the mission Voldemort chose him for. His progress with his 'special task' does not bode well for Hogwarts and its students or for Snape who has promised to watch over and protect him - a promise made at a high cost.

Hogwarts is not the haven and sanctuary it once was. When a student is harmed, it seems that Hogwarts and its students are the targets of a dark campaign. Is anyone safe? And who is the Half-Blood Prince?

Voldemort is getting more powerful and his Death Eaters are openly attacking the muggle and wizarding communities. Dumbledore thinks he can see a chink in the Dark Lord's armour but he needs Harry's help to find out if he is right. It seems Harry must get to know a new member of staff who once taught at the school many years before and who knows something that could be the key to winning the war against Voldemort.

Whilst full of the challenges of teenage angst, raging hormones and the joy and pain of life and love, this film charts Harry's relationship with Dumbledore, his mentor, the man who is training him to meet his destiny.

Roll on the next cinema release...I can hardly wait.

Dark times lie ahead ... the fight is not over yet!

 Great movie, shame about the release

| | See all silvercross's reviews (1)

To open with the positive, the movie itself is fantastic. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, but have been very critical of the adaptations so far. Half Blood Prince is my favourite book and I was very happy with the way the film kept the most important elements. Special note should go to Alan Rickman for, as ever, a brilliant performance as Snape and the ability to say so much with a simple look.

Now for the negative. The so- called 'digital copy'. The leaflet inside claims it's compatible with Mac OS X and iTunes. But no. Apparently it will ONLY work with Windows and Windows Media Player. I have read and reread the leaflet, and got my partner, who is a lawyer to reread it, and it clearly states that it is compatible with my system. It's only when you get onto the website that you find it doesn't work. Also, I didn't find a way to contact the site in order to complain.

So, worth getting for the Blu Ray/DVD copies, but don't put too much stock in the Digital one if you were hoping to use it on any iPod or similar.

 A Great Package!

| | See all HeadlessHorseman's reviews (17)

Haven't seen the film yet, but I just gotta say it's a great idea releasing this 'triple-play' package; I've not yet upgraded to Blu-Ray, so it's a nice idea that you can get more than one format in the same pack - saves on having to buy it yet again when you finally do upgrade, and at this price, I think it's quite a bargain.

I hope other studios follow suit, as this is a great idea!
