Now this movie is a shock, I forced myself to watch the first part, but the second one was a big hit. The first scene in the movie is a blast, very well executed and well planned, the intro couldn’t be better.
I, personally, am not a fan of harry potter and after watching the first part of fantastic beasts I was very hesitant to even watch this part. But eventually, thank God I went because it was a big surprise.
I must warn you there might be some spoilers in this review, but I won’t ruin the film, so if you’re one of the people who likes to read little bit about the movie, it’s safe to continue your reading.
At first, the opening is full of excessive visual effects, the element of surprise is very powerful and there’s no better way to meet Grindelwald, it shows you how much terrifying and dangerous he is, even if you have absolutely no idea who he is.
The cut between the scenes helped the element of surprise to be present all the time which made the movie even better. The fighting when destroying the house is undeniably creative, the idea behind it is very well implemented.
Probably you all saw the scene of the snake in the trailer, well it was a joy and disappointment at the same time. I was so excited to see how they will illustrate it, and they really did it very well, but the scene was too short and ended quickly.
One more point, unfortunately the acting wasn’t playing any role in enhancing the movie, in contrary, the actors were very neutral and displayed an ordinary act, including Johnny Depp and Jude Law.
To sum up all the mixed ideas above, visually speaking the movie aced it, acting speaking not so much. However, the element of surprise and the visual effects covered all its flaws.
I would hesitate between 4.5 or 5/5 but not less.
