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.
