Movie Critics Reviews:

Boston Globe (Wesley Morris) -“The Half-Blood Prince’’ introduces Jim Broadbent as Professor Horace Slughorn, the new, extravagantly dithering potions professor. The performance is a lovely concoction of tics, stammers, and squints. But the character is a device, something to be unlatched and opened so the plot can move to the next locked door. Sadly, that door is in the next movie. There’s enough cliffhanging to give you vertigo.

Chicago Tribune (Geoff Berkshire) -aturing even more rapidly than its stars, “Half-Blood Prince” takes the “Potter” series to places deeper and darker than ever before. Film number six is soaked in dread (you don’t need to have read the books to know things won’t end well—or with any sense of finality), but nicely balanced by the lightness of the teen romances. As chaotic and unpredictable as the world they live in has become, Harry, Ron and Hermione are still kids finding their way into adulthood, and it’s the human connections that make this magical tale so emotionally rewarding. Credit Yates (and exceptional new cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel) for ensuring the experience has the visuals to match—this is the series’ most eye-popping entry since Alfonso CuarĂ³n’s “Prisoner of Azkaban.”
