Happy Friday friends! Today I’m going to be reviewing the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
I feel bad because I still haven’t read the book yet (although I know I’m getting it for Christmas since I was in the store with my mom and I gave it to her for her to buy for me ha!). I feel like there is so much I want to say about this movie/book but I want to wait until I read the book, so my movie review I tried to stick just with critiquing the movie, and less on plot and character.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Passing through New York Newt has traveled from all over tracking and finding beasts to document them, when he bumps into a No-Maj (muggle) and some of the beasts get loose. When the wizards of New York find out, they think he’s done this on purpose; with the help of the No-Maj named Jacob, and two willing wizards, they set out to capture the beasts before it’s too late. Filled with mythical creatures, and high speed chases, mad-dashes and close calls, this film has a little taste of everything; even a budding romance. The film was done exceptionally well from the acting to the graphics; everything worked well together. From start to finish there was always something happening to keep the viewer interested and on their toes. Although the plots did waver from time to time, there was still something to look out for. The 3D in this film was not always needed. There were moments within the film that it really worked, and then there were others when it felt over used and didn’t enhance character development or plot. It all ended quite soundly; everything was tied up and no loose ends were left open, which left the viewer satisfied. Overall, this was a treat for any Harry Potter fan.
