March 10, 2019
Despite all the googly-eyed creatures of the land, air, and sea, this handsome production does strive towards genuine human drama under all the digital confetti.

March 4, 2019
A film that is loaded with mythology, but feels incomplete and lacks magic, but perhaps stands on its own. [Full Review in Spanish]

As a whole, the movie is entertaining, although its emotional core could have been handled better.

It is still a joy to look at, from design and action to overflowing content of the magical world.

An enchanting return visit to the Wizarding World with stunning set design, an engaging story, and masterful performances.

There is something quite charming about the construction of Rowling's jokes, her touch for relationships, that feels organic and unexpected.

A lot here works: it's more tonally assured than its predecessor and, bar certain eye-rolling climatic revelations, exploits the Potter nostalgia fruitfully.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is a solid choice during the holiday season.
November 29, 2018
It suffers a bit from being in the middle of a series and having to set up so many questions that don't get answered yet, but for every complaint I hear about this flick, I can think of something in it worth watching.
November 26, 2018
The immense wonder of the Potterverse lingers but the bulk of Grindelwald feels like two movies haphazardly sewn together and the camera is far too interested in the wrong side of this creation.

It's turning out to be a lot more interesting than some of the (leaden) previous films... because stylistically it seems to embrace the nineteenth-century novel without any kind of problem. [Full review in Spanish]

I really appreciated what they did in this film, though I am not a Potterhead...

The visuals in The Crimes Of Grindelwald are gorgeous, and probably even better than its predecessor.
November 21, 2018
A well acted, if ultimately lacklustre sequel.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald weighs heavily and can be hard to follow, with very little comic relief. Still it's pretty fantastic -- that is, both pretty and a fantasy.
November 20, 2018
A big part of what made this second Fantastic Beasts installment work for me is that so much of the character and world-building was already taken care of last time, which in turn made it feel like there are some actual stakes in play.

Sometimes, you fall for a certain sort of film, even when you know better.
November 19, 2018
Crimes of Grindelwald tries to do a lot all at once to often disorienting effect, like Hermione taking extra classes but without the aid of a Time-Turner.
November 19, 2018
It may be more problematic than its predecessor, but it's also as ambitious. [Full review in Portuguese]

If you're a fan of the series and plan to go see it if you haven't already: Go see it, you'll probably like it, but be prepared to be confused on a spectrum of a little to a lot.
