Film review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

As the sixth sequel of Harry Potter films, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince seems like a transition rather than an intriguing promotion upon its predecessors to meet expectations.

Unlike the previous sequels, the plots of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince develop in quite a loose style, like a glass hitting the ground, which compromises the cohesion to the key plot, the relations between Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The story continues in this sixth sequel featuring the adolescent life of Harry Potter, Malfoy's undercover conspiracy, the memory about the early age of Tom Riddle (Voldemort) and Dumbledore's adventure to vanquish the devil, seemingly in no connection with the theme. It is not until the end of the film has Professor Snape declared his true identity as Half-Blood Prince, reminding the audience of the film title. This could really enrage fans of Harry Potter with such a perfunctory plot design. In fact, the sixth volume of Harry Potter series does need to shed more lights on the stories that are going to make sense for the finale in the seventh volume. So it turns out with fewer curiosities this time which can probably be regarded as the most ordinary sequel of all Harry Potter film so far.

However, we are still happy to see the grown up of the three magical youngsters in this sequel and tap into their love affairs at school. Despite the plotting, I think Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is still worth our time to sit back and watch.
