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!

About 1/3 of the movie was just CG generated images of fantastic beasts which really didnt add much to the story. I enjoyed watching the movie, but felt it was lacking a good bit of substance. A lot of pretty and entertaining images, though.

I was disappointed. It lacked a lot, and was mostly uninspired. Not the Harry Potter world I've come to love. Dry characters employing even dryer magic.

So this movie is pretty good. But that's the problem, it's just good. There's an issue when you're on the stepping stones of the Harry Potter movies and the movie (although quite entertaining) makes us leave the theater going "meh". It's not something to miss though, we even get a magic fight right at the beginning. I think for the next films they should take a more unpredictable route to really keep us on our toes. We'll just have to see, next time.

This movie is an absolute snore fest, offering no redeeming qualities or likable characters. Those expecting anywhere near the same "magic" that the Harry Potter series provided, prepare to be disappointed.

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.

Like the wizarding movies to which it’s connected, Fantastic Beasts is better the darker it gets, especially in a robust final reel where the film fully hits its stride.

Fantastic Beasts is a good movie, and offers a fun and inventive return to Rowling’s wizarding world, but it could have been a better movie if didn’t waste so much time setting up a new franchise.
