Movie Reviews

  • while the crazy creatures are the highlight of the movie, they're not enough to recapture the magic of Harry's adventures at Hogwarts
    3.5 of 5 by Joshua Yehl [IGN Movies ]
  • there's much to admire on screen. But conversely, it still feels like the magic is missing so far. That the ingredients seem to be here, but they've not gelled into a story good enough
    3 of 5 by Simon Brew [Den of Geek ]
  • Rowling and Yates have given us a terrifically good-natured, unpretentious and irresistibly buoyant film
    5 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • patchy but occasionally charming
    Review rate : C+ by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club ]
  • far from perfect, but action-packed and splendid-looking
    by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • big, bold and teeming with imagination, it is so busy world-building that it occasionally forgets to have fun. But with this heavy lifting done, there's every reason to hope for an even more magical adventure next time
    3 of 5 by Helen O'Hara [Empire Online ]
  • a confident and surprisingly funny adventure that's more charming than most of the eight Harry Potter films
    3 of 4 by Brian Truitt [USA Today ]
  • "Fantastic Beasts" takes the bait right on cue, not repeating a formula so much as enriching it with a spellbinding polish
    Review rate : B+ by Eric Kohn [Indiewire ]
  • "Fantastic Beasts" amplifies both the strengths and weaknesses of Rowling's storytelling approach, which unfolds in the episodic style of vintage serials - a cliff-hanger-oriented tactic that works well in novels...but feels less elegant on screen
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
