This movie will be etched in my memory forever. It was very well cast and the storyline was amazing. I love the tie ins to the LeStrange family and the mention of preheadmaster days Dumbledore. The magic was phenomenal and Newt was a character you could fall in love with....and his creatures.....wow!
Definitely a must see especially if you enjoyed any of the HP movies!
We can all use more magic in our lives, and that promise is fulfilled quite delightfully at first. But extravagant creatures of digital descent can’t sustain a story that does little more than set the scene for a long string of sequels.
Yates and Rowling skillfully weave their bleak – and very blunt-edged – message into the fabric of the story. It might be wildly out of place in a fantasy aimed at tweens, but it’s a welcome change from the usual vapid blockbuster.
Invention and effects are the name of the game here, predictably, and this world invites us in as effectively as the best of the Potter episodes.... Somewhat less effective is the film's character-bonding agenda.
