"Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" is a delight of a film. It is by far the funniest of the movies so far, which is strange the source material is wicked dark stuff. Just how dark is the book you ask? Let's just say the scenes where a young Voldermort murders his family, a werewolf devouring children, and a sadistic youngling who enjoy killing don't make into this PG rated Potter film. It's a testament both to the original story and Steven Klove's screenplay that it succeeds so well as an adaptation (leaving this dark biz behind).
One of the best things about the Harry Potter series in print or on the silver screen is how the characters and the actors grow up over time. These actors were young when this bad boy started, peep the picture on the right as evidence. But now as the characters age, the film uses their emotions for some great comedy. There's plenty of snogging, scheming, and maybe even slaying, and I'm not talking about dragons, and all of it is wisely played for laughs.
Technically the film is great. Cinematographer
