Movie Reviews

  • the sequel has better and at times galvanizing special effects, a darker tone and a high-stakes battle between good and evil. Best of all, its characters are more vibrantly drawn, and tangled in relationships that range from delightful to lethal
    by Caryn James [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the second chapter of the Harry Potter spin-off provides twists and glorious visuals, but it strains under the weight of a mountain of plot; J.K. Rowling.. wants to pack in huge amounts of story, but she plots for books, not for the screen
    3 of 5 by Olly Richards [Time Out New York ]
  • the architectural detail of J.K. Rowling's creativity is as awe-inspiring as ever; this "Fantastic Beasts" film is as watchable and entertaining as expected and it's an attractive Christmas event
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]

    Review rate : C+ by Kate Erbland [Indiewire ]
  • an enjoyable foray into JK Rowling's imagination, bolstered by a more appealing Eddie Redmayne, but you can't help feel The Crimes Of Grindelwald is still treading water until future chapters
    3 of 5 by Ian Freer [Empire Magazine ]
  • admittedly, it's hard not to miss Harry and the sprawl of that eight-film epic: An entire generation's favorite story is a hard act to follow. But in his second outing, Newt has proved himself a lovable..wizard
