Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have both posted reviews of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
A positive one from Variety
: "Director David Yates, after a prosaic series debut on the prior film, displays noticeably increased confidence here, injecting more real-world grit into what began eight years ago as purest child's fantasy; messenger owls and chattering house elves have been superseded by a frank Underground tea-room flirtation, school security checks and raging teenage hormones."
A less-than-positive one that questions some film making decisions from The Hollywood Reporter
: "All this has a hurried feeling. Shouldn't there be repercussions to the collapse of a London bridge? The movie never stops to ask. Steve Kloves, who scripted the first four installments but skipped the fifth one, is back to scoot audiences through major events that transpire in a twinkling."
