review of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

well guys, 2 days back i watched this movie and here is my review and rating on this movie.

first of all, i need to say that this movie was not upto what I expected. quite a lot of set backs. if you have already read the book then im sure you will be disappointed with the movie. and if you havnt read the book, then go ahead and watch it and you wont feel the difference.

well to start with, the movie is pretty much boring the whole time. watch it for 30 mins max and u myt feel lyk it would have been better to watch transformers or ice age 3. although like in the other HP movies, the graphics are really good and u wont see a difference between graphics and real stuff. but the storyline is SHIT i would say.

the movie looks lyk the script had been written after reading the adult version of the book rather than the normal one. more emphasis is given the affair between Ron and that other curly hair girl and also Hermione's feeling towards Ron and also of the affairs of Harry with Ginny and of Ginny's with some other guy(i dont remember the name). more screen time has been allocated for these scene rather than for quidditch. yes. u got me correct. quidditch scene add upto around 2 minutes of the whole movie where as these affair scenes of snogging and showing feelings etc add upto around 20 or 25 minutes.

next. lots of interesting scene have been taken off from the book.

in the book harry has a look at many memories of voldormot, but in the movie, if im not wrong, he sees only 3 out of which one is repeated so its jst two. memories such as where harry sees voldormots parents, harry's parents and certain memories like snape's memories are all missing.

another main part missing in the movies is guess what?? well its the Dursley's!! yes. the Dursley's are never seen in the movie. these guys are a vital part of the story line and missing them is kind of bad!

the joke shop of the weasley twins are shown for around 2 mins only. and also a new scene that has been added into the movie is that the death eaters burn down the house of the weasly's. its kind of sad to see that happen but i really doubt if that scene was needed in the movie.

not much of the Ministry of Magic is referred to in the movie although it does not make much of a difference.

the battle at Hogwarts in the end is missing. according to the director, this was removed to spice up the next movie lu. so hope the next movie includes this part in it.

and at the end where dumbledore gets killed. harry is not hiding under the invisible cloak but watches the scene from an underground level. this make the killing part not visible so much and only the curse hitting dumbledore and him falling from the balcony is shown.

and if you havnt already watched the movie then dont go expecting the most wanted scene in the movie which is dumbledore's funeral. yes. dumbledore's funeral is not there in the movie. the scene has been completely removed. and the directors comment on this is that "IT DOESNT FIT IN THE MOVIE". What the HELL??? its the most important part in the book and to say it doesnt fit in the movie is shit!!!

well that is much of what can be said on the movie. cant say much good of it coz there's so much minus's than plus's.

well review done and i would rate the movie a 3/10.

although I have said all this, i would not recommend u not to watch it. if ur a HP fan then pls do go and watch the movie.

Adios then!
