A ‘Potter’ film with room to play

A great treachery is revealed, a great light is snuffed out and the final quest is set up in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” an emotional and involving installment in the hit-or-miss “Harry” movie series.

It’s a film of gloom, fear and dread — and we’re not just talking about the teen romance. A great cast is given a little room to act, something the weakest films in this planned octology have been lacking. The result is a satisfying film, coherent and engrossing enough to cover for the tedious by-the-book slog of even the best “Harry Potter” films.
