Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

fantastic beasts and where to find them

This movie is said to be the prequel of Harry Potter movies, but it offers a lot more. It is an introduction of the new characters of the movie.

This movie is about the adventure of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a young British man, visiting New York with his fantastic creatures. The character of Eddie Redmayne here is similar to his previous movie, The theory of everything, as being weird and serious. Jacob Kowalski the character of Dan Fogler, adds up the comedy side of the story that lightens the movie. Newt Scamander and Dan Fogler is the next Harry Potter and Ron Weasley tandem of fantastic beasts.

Though the movie is entitled fantastic beasts and where to find them, the focus of the story is about wizards hiding their secrets from the muggles or the no-maj (no magic people) and at the same time solving the issue of a monster creating an unexplainable destruction in New York.

Although the move is about magic and wizardry, it lacks the feeling of fantasy and wonder. There are also some flaws with the transitions of the movie, where if the viewer have not read the book, he or she will get confused.

As we said before, this movie serves as an introduction to the character and the next episode of the movie will surely be waiting for the next episode.
