Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince [2009]

A tad more stylish than the previous outings, but with significantly less substance and no plot. Under these circumstances, one would think it nearly impossible to procure some real drama, but it happens somehow. The film is strangely powerful. Sadly, it’s also very dark, literally. You can barely see anything. Michael Gambon is noteworthy in a key movie for his character, Albus Dumbledore. Daniel Radcliffe as the titular hero is more likeable than ever and as Lavender Brown, Jessie Cave is delightful.
