While visually gorgeous, the storytelling is confusing, overburdened with characters, and it left me feeling like I wasn’t in the club. None of the other movies made me feel this way. And the ending, which was supposed to be such a “reveal,” made my head spin. I had no idea what had just happened. Didn’t understand the contact. And I am a diehard Harry Potter fan. The acting is great, the casting is great—but the actual arc of the story didn’t make it into my heart. So it’s a waste of a lot of great talent, if you ask me.
Made purely for the sake of the next movie so they can grab more money. No logic what-so-ever with the storyline. Special effect is very good but what good is it if the storyline makes you want to break the screen?
The first Fantastic Beasts was a bit of a mess. The second one is actively bad. The longer this spinoff franchise goes on, the more damage it does to the legacy of the Harry Potter series — which knew not to overstay its welcome. Fantastic Beasts 2 has plenty of spells, wands, and wizards — and absolutely no magic whatsoever.
There’s real magic here, and nothing fake about the emotions which guide it.
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.
