    Not As Good As the First "Fantastic Beasts"

    I enjoyed seeing the first "Fantastic Beasts" movie in 3D. I watched the second movie - "The Crimes of Grindelwald" also in 3D and it continues where the first one ends. I didn't like it as much as the original but the special effects seemed to equal or even surpass those of the first movie. Eddie Redmayne is terrific as Newt Scamander but the plot is not. It is confusing and boring. But as this is the 2nd in the series written by JK Rowling, who knows what the future holds!

    The first movie came out was a good story line great C G , and sound. But the second installment just fell flat. The beginning of this should have been ending of the first,and then continued. A good script is sometimes hard to find. Let's just hope the screen writers don't drop the ball on the next installment. Tec. This movie was suburb. In order to understand the next chapter you must buy it. Then I would use it as a reference. I guess we will have to wait and hope.

    The wife fell asleep and I had to eat snacks to keep watching. I found the plot confused and uninteresting. Special effects and an occasional cutsey creature plus big name actors could not save it. A problem was dialog that was difficult to hear combined with created wizardy verbage you didn't understand. Unfortunately this movie is a "to be continued" thingy. I'll wait for that one until it shows in the bargain bin.

    The movie is disappointing to say the least. I'm a big HP fan and this movie conflicts with the Potter books. With that being said, the movie is basically the intro to another movie. Similar special effects to the first movie, waiting for the plot to unfold but it really doesn't until the conclusion when it sets the plot for the next movie.

    They made a mistake in saying this series is going to be 5 movies, because movies like this aren't necessarily needed. It's just filler for the overall plot. It's fine and even though there are things in the movie people won't like, it's still watchable. But I'd wait for it come on streaming or something.

    I enjoyed the first Fantastic Beasts movie. It had a coherent plot line and characters to follow. This was just a mess and all over the place. Not in a good way. The FX was what you'd expect for a Wizarding World film this decade and the actors did the best with what they had.

    This one was disappointing. The writing has gotten sloppy, and the filmmakers are depending too much on special effects. It also leaves you hanging, not so much wanting the next chapter, but just wanting it to be over. Its predecessor was much better.

    This movie should have been made with a better script. It is a horrendous bust. I only watched it because the first one was so entertaining and captivating. Focus too much on the special effect and not the flow of the story itself.

    I expected a lot more from this movie but it is a disappointing sequel from the first movie. Sadly, this series are nowhere close to the Harry Potter movies...

    Has some fanatic visuals, but the story and plot are weak and the film as a whole suffers quite greatly this time around; the first installment was better.

    The first movie was pretty good. This one though lacked action. The movie is just based on history of the characters. Hard to keep your attention. Rent it.

    Sets up some mildly interesting things for future movie, but doesn't really stand up on its own and is a mediocre/boring watch

    Fell asleep both times, Couldn't figure out what the plot was. Special effects. Best bet is to rent it from Redbox and save $20.

    I wonder what was left out of the cutting room floor. The movie itself is mediocre. The video and sound in 4k is of course amazing.

    I found this slow moving and it was hard to keep my eyes open as I was falling asleep. I never do that with a good movie.

    Was not as good as the first one. Grindelwald was not that great of a character. It could have been much better.

    Great special effects, the story line was a little bit too much. Made it for a sequel. Didn't have a good ending

    I did not like The Crimes of Grindelwald as much as I liked the first movie. I was just okay.

    I found the movie to be on the morbid side. Slow and anticlimactic at the end. But ok to watch.
