MOVIE REVIEW: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape from MACUSA custody. The villainous Grindelwald has been busy gathering more followers to his cause – elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. Newt will again be joined by Queenie and Tina Goldstein in the next film, as well as his No-Maj friend, Jacob Kowalski. However, the mission against Grindelwald will ‘test their loyalties’ as the wizarding world becomes more divided and dangerous.
Despite all the bad ratings, I have to say that I LOVE THIS FILM. Though it didn’t have much action scenes, it gave a lot of answers to the questions that left unanswered from the first film. I freaked out when Harry Potter characters came into the scene: Dumbledore, Nagini and NICOLAS FLAMEL!!! It brought back so many memories from my childhood and not to mention HOGWARTS!!! It’s a crime to hate JK rowling’s work. Once a potterhead, always a potterhead.
