The film may seem well known for the references in the Harry Potter saga, but the story's own identity tells us that we are in a renewed territory that, as we already anticipated, has bewitched us with an amazing spectacle. [Full review in Spanish]

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a genuinely interesting, sometimes thrilling new world that still feels vaguely familiar.
March 27, 2020
All of the action around Newt's missing beasts is enjoyable, and many of the creatures (more Nifflers, please) are irresistible.

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.

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.

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.
