Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald Movie Review: JK Rowling's attempt at making a Harry Potter spin-off fails!


Directed by David Yates, Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald, has finally been released in India and all the Harry Potter fans are eagerly waiting for their shows to begin. However, if you haven't booked your ticket just yet and have high expectations from the Harry-Potter spin off then you must wait until you read this article.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is a Harry Potter spin-off movie, written by JK Rowling

Although JK Rowling is known for writing some of the most remarkable stories but this time, Rowling has overdone herself. Based on the mythical world of witchcraft and wizardry, Fantastic Beasts takes you through the tale of some newly-added magical characters which are nothing but annoying to the audience.

The movie is set in the past of Harry Potter and every character of Fantastic Beasts is an ancestor of one or the other HP character. Also, Rowling's Fantastic Beasts' story will ruin the nights of many young Harry Potter fans. For instance, the movie shares a brief insight to Albus Dumbledore's sexual orientation and we yet fail to understand the reason behind it.

Johny Depp and Jude Law starring Fantastic Beasts, is one of the weakest entry in the Harry Potter series. And the reason behind it is quite obvious. The Crimes of Grindelwald was supposed to provide answers to the queries which every HP fan has but it is not.

Also, the best part of Harry Potter series, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, makes only a single appearance in the Fantastic Beasts movie. The movie becomes very confusing when the world of magic and non-magic cross paths with each other. There will be time when you will find it hard to judge who's who.

Grindelwald, the notorious criminal is being portrayed by none-other-than Johnny Depp. Apart from Depp's entry in the movie, even his character fails in making a grip over the audience.

The whole movie revolves around Ezra Miller as Credence, a boy over whom all the characters are fighting. Eddie Redmayne returns as Newt Sacamander who has his head-tilted, long-haired, shy fellow we have come to expect and tire of.

The beasts shown in the movie are surely pretty fantastic but the storyline is itself very confusing. As per our final verdict, we will like to award 4 out of 10 stars
