There's a great new review
for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
online this evening courtesy of The Sun:
The problem with the previous Harry Potter movies, though, is that every important twist and turn has been slavishly crowbarred in.
It has made for some uneven storytelling - the worst offender being the last instalment, The Order Of The Phoenix.
Thankfully, director David Yates has learned from his mistakes and here he turns in the most confident, stylish, individual, warm-hearted and witty Harry Potter yet.
He's also turned up the heat by focusing on raging hormones rather than rampaging beasts, with the main characters more interested in mixing love potions than aceing their exams.
Instead of "going darker" again (yawn), Daniel Radcliffe as Harry, inset, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) go lighter.
