HARRY POT­TER AND THE HALF- BLOOD PRINCE

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

NINE, Fri­day, 7.30pm, PG ( 2009)

Dark magic and surg­ing teenage hor­mones prove an ex­plo­sive mix as the beloved boy wizard ( Daniel Rad­cliffe, left) casts his cin­e­matic spell once again in the sixth in­stal­ment of J. K. Rowl­ing’s be­witch­ing saga. The mak­ers of the Pot­ter film se­ries seem driven to make each episode more epic than the pre­vi­ous – this one clocks up 153 min­utes – and the ten­sion here reaches boil­ing point as Harry bat­tles not only Lord Volde­mort ( Ralph Fi­ennes), but also that malev­o­lent spell cast upon both Mug­gles and ma­gi­cians – ro­mance. This is one of the dark­est Pot­ter sto­ries.
