Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) 🌟🌟🌟
My 60th movie at the cinema this year which I went to watch the midnight showing of and I sort of fell asleep 😴! It was totally self inflicted! I remember watching the beginning of the movie and maybe an eye opened here or there about halfway through but, I was wide awake for the last 20 minutes of the movie 👀. Therefore, I had to go back and re-watch this movie again.
No time is wasted, the movie picks up after the first Fantastic Beasts movie and the action kicks off straightaway 💥. The special effects are great and watching it in IMAX was even better. The last 15 minutes or so is definitely visually impressive! 👌🏻
You will see new charcters introduced and every character is played very well. Johnny Depp is great as Grindelwald; his dodgy eye freaked me out though 😟. Eddie Redmayne is brilliant as Newt although, there is a scene where he licks the floor which perhaps, might be taking it too far 🤢. And, Jude Law as Dumbledore just brings a smile to your face 😊.
Everyone loves the Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts series is also good but, I do feel the storyline could possibly be a little difficult for a younger audience to follow. The second instalment definitely has a darker feel to it but, the plotline felt a little weak.
We all know there will be another movie in this series which I hope is epic 🤗! There is no doubt that if you’re a fan of JK Rowling and of her work, this movie will be one that you go to watch. Just don’t have very high expectations. Go check it out!
3 out of 5 stars. Remember, it’s my opinion!
