While Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them isn't all the way a good movie, it has promise.
January 15, 2020
Redmayne is a compelling central presence, and the story is head-and-shoulders above anything else in the blockbuster world this year. But... it suffers sorely from the missing chemistry at its core.

The film is lush and Rowling-esque enough - with plenty of wonderfully animated fantastic beasties - to satisfy Potter fans.

Is it a blatant cash grab from Warner Brothers or a creative return to an expansive world we all knew J.K. Rowling couldn't abandon entirely? Of course it's both.

A refreshing addition to the Potterverse, it serves as an appropriate foundation for its forthcoming sequels that will hopefully open up more opportunities for the ever-expanding franchise.

Everything is built to draw you in, enthrall, and connect you to the action.
October 3, 2019
A bloated hodgepodge of tangential creature-related asides distract from a tedious ho-hum narrative.
September 20, 2019
An immensely entertaining film.

With Yates at the helm, fans should expect an assured, polished and cohesive watch which fuses the old and the new, the magic with reality, and the spectacle with heart.

I want to be up front with Harry Potter fans - this movie is not Potter caliber. But I still found it to be absolutely lovely and enchanting, with much to admire.

When it comes to wizards, J.K. Rowling can do no wrong.
September 1, 2019
One of 2016's best blockbusters, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a lot of fun and a, well, fantastic start to what looks set to be a franchise every bit as exciting as, and perhaps more so, than Harry Potter.

The film triumphs when it focuses on the nourished and surprising naturalistic adventure. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 25, 2019
Fantastic Beasts is an unnecessary installment of a beloved franchise that features a stupid caricature doing slapstick comedy, a repetitive villain, racist characters, and poor acting. Sorry Potterheads, you just got Phantom Menace-d.
April 2, 2019
There is fun to be had with the magical beasts and characters like Queenie but it's hard to endorse a movie when I can't understand the lead character most of the time.

It is suitably magical.
February 14, 2019
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a worthy addition to the Harry Potter canon, bringing a whole new perspective to a beloved universe. With plenty of humor and heart, it is a delightful cinematic experience.
February 2, 2019
Rowling's storytelling, as always, is full of wonder and amazing moments.
January 30, 2019
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is proof that the Harry Potter universe still has much to give. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 15, 2019
Does it reach the extremely high standards of the first Harry Potter film? I would say no, it does not. But it is extremely likeable, and there was not one second in the entire two-hour run that I was bored.
