  Fantastic

One of the best Harry Potter films so far. It just beats Goblet of Fire (but only ever so slightly). It leaves you on the edge of your seat, one of those "did that just happen" moments! To anyone thinking of buying this movie I can assure you it does not disappoint its money well spent. Endless watchability and a must see for anyone who loves Harry Potter.

As a major Harry Potter geek I had read the book before watching the film so I had very high expectations. And to be honest, after I watched "The Half-Blood Prince" for the first time, I was disappointed at how much detail from the book they had left out and thought it a let-down, even though I understand they can't fit absolutely everything in. However, after seeing it a couple of times more I've come to love it and enjoy it for the parts that are included in the film. I would recommend NOT reading the books before viewing the film because it does spoil it slightly. Also, I know the Harry Potter series is geared towards children but I definately wouldn't recommend letting younger children watch it alone as there are some hairy moments and even I (at age 22) flinched a few times. The story gets very dark in this installment and I can't wait for the Deathly Hallows!

I read the book and I liked it. When I saw the film I immediately loved it! It has marvellous special effects with a great story line. I would recommend it to any age as it has many differnet aspects of life.

  If you like the books ... you'll hate it.

I think J K Rowling's books are just fantastic. I have been re-reading them for years and if you are planning on watching the film without any knowledge of the book then you'll probably enjoy it. If you have read the book even once, you'll hate it. The lack of a battle at the end of the film, which is so intense in the book is a joke. It would have not only given a more accurate portrayal of Rowling's work but also made the film more exciting as it tends to drag in places. The worst film so far for accuracy. Lets hope that the last two films don't make a mockery out of Rowling's magical masterpiece. An inaccurate portrayal of a spectacular book.

  Potter's back once again!

While, Harry Potter and the half-blood prince is automatically great just because it is part of the Harry Potter saga, I'd be lying to myself if I said it was near perfect.

Of course, special effects wise the film is rather stunning but my main grip is the way they took to the 6th book. Now, I did enjoy it and have seen it many times on different occasions but I just felt that the first half was drawn out well and the second half was rushed. I would have prefered the opposite to this as that is were the film picks up, actions wise.

Naturally, the actors have done a great job and more to the point Tom Felton. Considering we usually see the spoilt-child side of him, it's great to see Draco become more of a powerful young man.
