Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince - Movie Review

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince - 8/10 - Fantasy - starring Daniel Radcliff, Emma Thompson and Rupert Grint.

The movie was much better than the book, which I had found to be quite long and boring. It was good to see the repetitive bits cut off, like Albus Dumbledore's long speeeches, repeated pensieve sessions, long fights and funeral. Well, Daniel Radcliff hasn't grown as tall as the fictional Harry Potter - it takes some of the realism away but he still looks quite adorable.

The movie direction and screenplay were great. They should get rid of that blue filter - it is used a bit too much in a bit too many movies. The acting was awesome, especially of the two kids who played the young Tom Riddle and Professor Slughorn. Good character development of the main protagonists as they mature from teenagers to young adults.

Interesting question - During the movie, Harry never tells anyone other than Hermione, Ron and Ginny that he has the Potions textbook belonging to the Half Blood Prince. In the end, Severus Snape tells Harry that he is the 'Half Blood Prince'. How did Severus Snape know that Harry had his old textbook or that Harry was interested in knowing his identity?
