Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009)

The boy wizard comes closer to a face off with Voldemort while he and his friends begin to mature and discover the magic of the opposite sex.  The films are visually stunning but aren't all capturing the spirit of the books to the same degree.  This one comes across kind of flat for a fantasy flick.  Even with the 153 minute running time it runs short on the magic and wonder of previous entries - trying hard to fit too much into the film while skimming over others.  Some major events occur that change the landscape of the series, they could have been very powerful, but are somewhat lacking.  Not terrible, not a winner either.  6 out of 10
