J.K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was certainly about different unique beasts and how they behave mutual world of wizards and humans but the follow-up part is sincerely concerned in forming a perfect story which will help the overall franchise of Fantastic Beasts to enter into a new world of uncertainties and intriguing drama. But the story is filled with needless details which thus give rise to some plot holes .
Set in 1920’s the film starts with Grindelwald’s amazing escape from the jails of American Ministry of Magic . Johnny Depp as a villain is a treat to watch in itself. His charm is felt whenever he arrives on a scene . He has some similar thinking to that of some common villains a perfect example would be Magneto of X-Men franchise. He wants to create a world of wizards as he thinks that normal human beings are a part of weaker sections of society which should be eradicated from this world . Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) is given the duty of defeating Grindelwald by Dumbledore (Jude Law). Grindelwald wants to use Credence as a weapon to complete his goal. Newt goes to Paris to meet Tina who believes that Newt is going to marry Leta over a wrong article written in a magazine but it was actually his brother who is going to marry Leta. Tina is in Paris to find Credence.
Credence is back as he somehow survived the attack done to him in the first part . But he is in an emotional state , searching for his origin through every possible way he can . Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz ) past story is quite interesting which reveals how she and Credence aren’t the real brothers and sisters. Credence still didn’t come to know about his family which makes him more depressed. Grindelwald persuades many wizards to follow his common goal of having a world full of wizards, even Credence .
The final battle is a visual treat but it doesn’t looks as grand as people would expect a final battle to be. Ending arises many questions which will be answered in the later parts of the franchise.
Acting -3.5/5 ⭐
Final Verdict – 3/5 ⭐
Fantastic Beasts : Crimes Of Grindelwald is a visual treat but is too engrossed in details. So it’s an average movie but still a perfect watch for the week.
