It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
In the sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, and in both wizard and muggle worlds Lord Voldemort and his henchmen are increasingly active. With vacancies to fill at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore persuades Horace Slughorn, back from retirement to become the potions teacher, while Professor Snape receives long awaited news. Harry Potter, together with Dumbledore, must face treacherous tasks to defeat his evil nemesis. Written by
Like all Harry Potter fans I have read all of the books and seen every
film so far. I would have to say that this film is not my favourite so
far and leaves you feeling that some vital parts of the book are
missing. However this is worth watching and I feel this will only
disappoint the most hardcore Harry fans!
With all of the films you can notice that the acting is improving with
the maturity of the characters. You can tell that there is a close bond
between the actors of which all pull of their roles well. The directing
and visual effects, like all of the films to date does not disappoint.
In all a great family film, a pleasure to watch and I would recommend
this film to most people. I am glad that the final film will be split
into two parts, to be honest they could have done it with this film!
*** For people who have never seen any of the films or read the books I
took my friend with me who has not seen or read any of the books and he
was completely lost throughout the film (Although he still enjoyed
it!). If you wish to see this I would recommend you need to see Harry
Potter and the Order of the Phoenix first. Otherwise you may find this
film a little confusing.
