Enjoyed this movie, didn't see first. I describe it as Harry Potter for grown ups. Acting of Depp and Redmayne really stood out. All actors gave very good performances but those two elevated the crew. Not for kids, but most teens will enjoy. It's not an action movie but instead a movie about the complexity of character and self determination. If into existentialism, this is definitely for you! Could even be a morality play but goes much deeper.
I like the Harry Potter movies and J.K. Rowling so I was looking forward to this. However, I still can't tell you what the plot is supposed to be. Characters come and go with seemingly no explanation. It's all very convoluted. I felt nothing for any of the characters. It is boring, long, drawn out and makes no sense. Huge disappointment. You can miss this and save a few bucks..
This movie in 3D was crazy cool! Overwhelming big experience to see in the theater and highly recommend seeing it in the theater. You will miss this experience if you wait to see it at home. Very entertaining....no boring or dull moments at all!
Johnny Depp is back! His best since The Lone Ranger. 4/5
This movie was fantastic and creepy at the same time.
Unless you're a Potter fan, pass on this movie. A better option is to wait until the entire series is complete and you can watch it at home, or not, as it does get overwhelming boring.
Loved it. The acting was excellent, it was much better than the first "Fantastic Beasts", which I liked. I think J.K. Rowling does Britain better than the U.S., loved seeing Hogwarts again and the British settings again. Excellent movie that leaves you hanging a little bit, in a good way.
Well done story. :)
Moving, action based movie. Lots of magic and artistic technology.
