Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

The bonus features on the two-disc edition are some of the best yet for Potter fans. The cast, having now grown up on a movie set for nearly a decade, each host behind-the-scenes looks at the aspects of filmmaking that interest them most: editing (Daniel Radcliffe), makeup (Emma Watson), stunt training (Rupert Grint), etc. (this includes James Phelps--a.k.a. Fred Weasley--who did double duty as a floor runner during production and laments that part of his job is fetching his other castmates tea and sweets). Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy, also hosts a lightning-round Q&A with cast members on their favorite music, foods, and more. In "One Minute Drills," they're further challenged to summarize the story arc of their characters throughout the entire series in 60 seconds. The most compelling feature on this disc, however, is the excellent documentary "J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life," which follows the author through writing the final book (you literally see her hit her final keystroke and hand off the briefcase to her literary agent at Heathrow), the red-carpet rollout, and her childhood haunts, including a tearful visit to the humble flat she lived in when she penned the very first installment. In the doc's in-depth interviews, Rowling also freely answers probing questions about her childhood--the early death of her mother, her estrangement from her father, and her bout with depression; her husband and sister are interviewed as well. She's portrayed as a shy, self-effacing, type-A personality uncomfortable with her success, particularly when she balks at a question about wondering if people close to her will ask her for money. And finally, there's the icing on the cake: snippets of scenes being filmed and nearly one minute of finished footage from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. No Potter fan should be without this edition in their Muggle hands. --Ellen A. Kim

Product Description

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Even as the decisive showdown looms, romance blossoms for Harry, Ron, Hermione and their classmates. Love is in the air, but danger lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars dvd details November 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since I had to look elsewhere for DVD details (to decide whether to buy the 2-disc or one-disc film), I thought I'd post here:

1-Disc Wide screen and Full Screen DVD

*Includes both a wide screen and full screen version of the film.
*No special features
*RRP $28.98
2-Disc Digital Copy Special Edition DVD

*Widescreen version only
*Additional scenes (6:31)
*Close-Up with the Cast and Crew of Harry Potter special. Matthew Lewis ("Neville Longbottom") and Alfred Enoch ("Dean Thomas") lead us on an entertaining look at the cast of Harry Potter as they explore their interests away from acting and spend a day on set with the production team (28:30)
*J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life: A fascinating and intimate look into the life of J.K. Rowling over the last year of writing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." (49:32)
*One Minute Drills: The cast has 60 seconds to describe their character's personality, history, relationships and other traits before time runs out (6:43)
*What's On Your Mind: Hosted by Tom Felton, the cast is put on the spot when asked a series of rapid-fire questions on their likes and dislikes. (6:41)
*Universal's "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" Sneak Peek: Get an "inside look" at the amazing world of magic and excitement being created at Universal Orlando® Resort in Florida (11:38)
*Digital Copy of the theatrical film (2nd disc)
*RRP $34.99

I can't believe the negative reviews. I read the book and thought the filmmakers did a fantastic job with it. Anyone who wants a film to be an exact replica of any book should do themselves a favor and just read the book again. Am looking forward to enjoying it again (and again) on DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars So sad, so... very... sad. October 29, 2009
By Geoff

First. please let me say that I adore (nay, worship) the Harry Potter stories. So, being a gen-you-wine "Potter-Head" I was first in line to see Half-Blood Prince.

It was an interesting movie. Nice special effects.
Disjointed enough however that one MUST have seen all the previous movies and/or read the books to follow the plot.

...Most importantly, it bears little resemblance to the Harry Potter books!!!

Really. I can forgive replacing the actions of one character with another character, to save time, I can even forgive eliminating whole chapters for the sake of brevity, but to change scenes, edit whole parts, and invent whole chapters???

Beware, below, there be SPOILERS! Don't read if you haven't watched!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some examples of lost scenes:

-Dumbledore confronting the Dursley's? Gone.
-The invention of a fight at the burrow, including the destruction of the whole house? Really? Where's Bill & Fleur going to get married next movie? (Oh that's right, in the movies, they AREN'T! Heck, they aren't even in -this- movie!)
-The "Meeting of the Ministers" scene? Gone. Heck there's absolutely NO sign of Scrimgeour -anywhere- in the whole movie!
-Tonks rescuing Harry from the train? Nope, now it's Luna, looking for Wrackspurts, and removing Harry's invisibility cloak with her wand. (As A Deathly Hallow, it should be immune to summoning and/or levitation charms.)
-The slow build up leading to the Quiddich victory kiss? Gone. Now just a "close your eyes" peck in the Room of Requirement, and this was done horribly!!
-The two months of Harry & Ginny dating? Gone.
-Harry breaking up with Ginny to protect her? Gone!

Warner Brothers is trying to fool us again - calling this an "Ultimate Edition" when it is NOT the extended version of the film. It comes with behind the scenes extras and commentaries, but the movie itself is the same! I expect this is because they decided after the first 2 Ultimate Editions that they would wait and re-release all 8 movies at once in another Ultimate Edition, but this time a Box Set with extended versions of all films - to entice everyone to buy all the movies yet again. Hold off for now and watch your DVD copies - next year we can all buy the REAL Ultimate Editions!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dark Half-blood Prince January 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD was so dark in parts that I felt I was looking at a blank screen, I know the subject matter was dark but it would have been nice to see what was going on. The other Harry Potter DVD's managed to convey the dread felt by Harry without such gloomy film. The producer and director obviously tried the old way of Film Noir and it just was annoying. I hope the last Harry Potter will be more visible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yawn December 28, 2009
By N. Perz
Verified Purchase
How very disappointing. HPaTH-BP is a very slow movie with very little by way of character or story development. Very little actually happens. Basically, it's setting things up for the final film. The film was dark (visually, I mean) and, now that the kids are no longer young and cute, we're left with the fact that they're not very good actors. This installment comes nowhere near the quality of the last film. I guess that, like me, if you've already committed to the series, you're going to watch it regardless, just don't pay full price for this; it's not worth it.

Not recommended.

Will there be the epic battle in delete scene?
No way, too expensive, that's why they never filmed it. They would never create such an involved, expensive scene and then cut it.
