Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Reviews
I rate this movie as 4/5 as even it is great in a lot of aspects, still some characters and overall story is a bit clumsy and stumbles from time to time.
Though Eddie Redmayne is a great actor and he also acts well in movie. However, his character and his acting does not change in any way as the film goes on. As we meet him for the first time on screen, the same he leaves it before the final credits.
Also, the movie does not explain why is smiling all the time for no reason. Weird face expressions become a little disturbing after two hours in row.
The story itself offers not only a lot of fantastic beasts and struggling of Newt to find them but also an additional detective story. Sometimes it is more like a light horror movie, though I think it may be a little harsh for the smallest viewers.
New York, architecture, all the tiniest details are constructed with so much love and dedication. Costume designers also deserved their Academy Award.
Dan Fogler is a true star of the movie. All the humor and interest in the film lies on his shoulders and talents. I had a few moments where I though that I may be bored and that's there Jacob Kowalski came into play again and again.
Without this character the movie would lose a great part of the impression it makes.
The movie is a perfect foundation stone for next films built around the magic world from Harry Potter franchise. If you love words created by J.K. Rowling unbound fantasy, you should definitely watch this movie.
I thought the actors were picked out very well and I loved the way we finally got to see some American Witches and Wizard along with a Muggle for a main character.
I can't wait to see what they will do with the rest of the story as there are still 4 more films to come in the series.
It was brilliantly directed by David Yates, and it was nice to see yet another amazing story from J.K. Rowling.
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is truly an amazing movie.
