Fantastic Beasts feels like a missed opportunity for Rowling...While there are flashes of wonder and whimsy, there seems little in these characters that would support an ambitious, five-part franchise.
[Dan Fogler] is so good. He's funny, he brings a lot of heart to the movie, and he plays the part of us, the audience. I thought it was a brilliant move to have someone in the movie who can't do magic be a part of this adventure.
[It] will make for a marvelous theme park attraction someday. But as a movie, as a vessel for narrative and ideas enacted by recognizably human characters, it fails to tap into the same simple potency that Harry and Co. wielded from book one.
