Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

The second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

    Pros:

    Performances by Eddie Redmayne and Johnny Depp.

    Special effects are amazing throughout.

    Cons:

    More could be done to explore the character of Credence as he is an important character to the story but seemed one dimensional.

    More time should have been spent on the Queenie and Jacob situation. It was just quickly explained with a few lines which seemed like just a post it note attached to the side.

    Overall:

    As this movie continues on a few months after the original movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, don’t cheat yourself by thinking you can miss it and catch up pretty quick. All the characters are back and you will spend the movie wondering who they are, what happened previously and if you missed something important. Otherwise watch away!

    Eddie Redmayne continues his lovable performance as Newt Scamander who always seems to have a lot less trouble with the creatures in his world than humans. On the darker side, Gellert Grindelwald played by Johnny Depp has been spending his time in a high security wizard prison waiting for his chance to continue his search for Credence, played by Ezra Miller. Depp plays the role well with the look and actions of an iconic evil wizard that has more to him than just wanting to do bad things. Tina, Queenie and Jacob are also back to continue the journey with Newt. They are joined by new characters to this series Jude Law who plays a young Professor Dumbledore and Zoe Kravitz playing Leta Lestrange - someone from Newt’s past with her own internal conflict and battles to overcome.

    The special effects continue to amaze throughout with all that is done without making it look too unbelievable and keeping the audience entranced in the wizarding world. As anything can and usually does happen it keeps the audience guessing throughout while answering some questions then turns around leaving the audience asking even more. Lucky there are another 3 books to hopefully answer them all!
