    With the possible exception of the first book/movie combination in the Harry Potter series, each film adaption has done its share of cutting/editing from J.K. Rowling's original work. Luckily, this film version of "Half-Blood Prince" (other than its predecessor "Order of the Phoenix") manages to maintain its soul despite the inevitable cuts. For a basic plot summary, "Prince" sees Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) taking private lessons from Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), where they examine certain memories of a young Tom Riddle in order to be better prepared for his adult Lord Voldemort identity. At the same time, the trio of Harry, Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermoine (Emma Watson) take the next crucial steps in their wizarding education by learning more advanced potion-making (under new Professor Slughorn(Jim Broadbent)) and even taking the first steps toward apparating. Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) take on larger roles in this installment, while Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) constantly lurks in the background. Like the novel, "Prince" is a great piece of fiction primarily because of all the Harry/Dumbledore interactions and their trips into the past of Voldemort. Despite one key "flashback" being completely cut out, the movie does a good job of showing those younger Riddle years. Essentially, the heart of the writing remains (unlike how it was completely cut out in "Phoenix"). The acting also continues to improve, what with Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson probably turning in their best performances to date. Felton as Malfoy also grows quite a bit in this one, and the Weasley characters are always fun to get back to. Almost completely stealing the show is a wonderful performance from Broadbent as Slughorn. Overall, "Half-Blood Prince" is a fine book-to-film adaption that will satisfy both the Potter-heads and the more casual fans of the series. Though I won't give any specific spoilers here, the end of the film very strongly hints that the action of the final movie(s) will largely take place outside of Hogwarts.

    This is where Harry Potter started to get seriously amazing again like it had with the Prisoner of Azkaban. I loved the book, but Half-Blood Prince nails the dreary, dreamlike atmosphere with a standout soundtrack by Hooper. Visually immersive, this shows what you want in a film adaptation, for it it to have all the cinematic bells and whistles and more. Film has it's own necessities and you simply can't think about the book when judging a film on it's own. You want it to be a complete work of art? Well this film looks like a Rembrandt painting and is perhaps one of the most comfy films ever created.

    In doing it's own thing, HBP a tone masterpiece and directed much tighter by Yates than Order of the Phoenix, which was also underrated and certainly so being his film debut. The acting is better, the cinematography by Delbonnel is arguably the best. The different ways chosen to light Hogwarts in this installment are very brooding and gives the castle it's own character, almost sticking out in the background a dark mark itself. It swallows the characters in times of stress. The latter third is perfect and the film builds very well, it's almost Harry and everyone's most normal year, yet it slowly goes to hell. I still remember how dire the cave scene felt in theaters. Gambon gives his best performance in the series. This is Fincher on steroids. David Yates has hit his stride.

    Harry joins Dumbledore in a quest to discover details about Voldemort's past that could lead to his undoing in the future, all while the teenage trio deal with humorous and heartbreaking relationship woes. This sixth film deftly balances mystery, comedy, and romance for its first two hours, wisely slowing the pace to give its characters room to breathe and grow before thrusting them into the breathless, chilling, and genuinely heartbreaking last half hour. Michael Gambon here gives the definitive portrayal of Dumbledore, and the relatively lighthearted initial tone serve as a brilliant contrast to the earth-shattering encroachment of evil; it truly feels like there's something to lose, and the stakes are set high for the finale.

    IS IT OKAY FOR YOUR KIDS? Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is rated PG. A central character is hit with a killing curse and dies; friends and colleagues mourn around the body. A central character drinks a potion that torments him mentally and emotionally; another goes into convulsions when he accidentally imbibes poison. Several male and female characters kiss, at times passionately.

    ANY WORTHWHILE MESSAGES? Telling the truth, even when it's painful, often paves the way for the triumph of good.. Unity and light bring hope which can dispel darkness and despair. Women like men who display chivalry and treat them with respect.
