Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Andrew and I went to see Harry's 6th last night. Here's my short review:

Not a masterpiece, but a good quick-paced Harry Potter story on screen.

Here's a little more:

This story is told without the aid of excellent acting -- almost none of the players in this movie give anything more than adequate performances.
The exception? Jim Broadbent as Professor Horace Slughorn
The real storytelling in this movie has been done with lighting, camera angles, camera movements and music.
Those who have not read the books may be a little confused at times, but have patience -- most will be revealed by the end of this film

I'm still looking forward to the two-part ending!
