For all its focus on teen romantic entanglements, it sure has very little to do with the Half-Blood Prince.

...one of the longest yet most-delightfully entertaining installments in the series.

Radcliffe, Grint and Watson are great as always, but director David Yates' adherence to realism stifles J.K. Rowling's trickster-storytelling wiles. Yates' horrifically bad botching of big-ticket moments bodes poorly for the "Deathly Hallows" films.

In a world where the Transformers sequel can make a mint while being so lackadaisical and empty, it almost makes you wonder why the Potter crew bother to take such care. But let's not question it. Just enjoy it.

As the Harry Potter movies have ventured into darker, more mature territory, the series has greatly improved in one regard: The stories feel more epic, the tension more real.

The most disappointing of the bunch, if only because it opens so promisingly

Harry Potter grows up. Harry Potter needs to shave. Harry Potter shows more interest in the young ladies at Hogwarts.

Harry must enter the mists in anxiety and emerge stronger. Everything about his world is uncertain, not to be trusted - and who among us hasn't felt the same way, even if witches didn't lurk around our corners?

...an epic length fantasy where we continue to care for these characters, and are glad to know that the finale won't be rushed

There's a welcome lightness in the romantic couplings, which will have pre-teens across America asking, "Mom, what's snogging?"
| Original Score: 3.5/4

Tal vez el problema mayor %u2013más allá de la duración, la falta de momentos "importantes" y de acción, e incluso el exceso de romance adolescente- sea el desfiguramiento de Harry como héroe.

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" is the most balanced Harry Potter film to come along...

This is a movie that steps far outside of the comfort zone and becomes an enthralling and fully-realized gothic fantasy.

Half-Blood is fully worth seeing.

The uniformly good performances and the often inspired craftsmanship arguably make this second only to Cuaron's Prisoner of Azkaban in the Potter pantheon.
Thomas Leupp

Delivers all the visual grandeur we've come to expect from the saga while simultaneously tackling the potentially thorny issue of adolescent hormonal urges with warmth, subtlety and a good dose of humor.
