Fantastic Beasts is a film full of magic, wonder and lots of amazing creatures
I really liked the Harry Potter series. Each book did a splendid job telling the tale of the boy who lived. Fantastic Beasts takes place decades before this story ever happened. It attempts to give insight into the wizarding world of the past. I was able to see it this week and here is what I thought of it.
Here is the plot for Fantastic Beasts:
The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
I enjoyed Fantastic Beasts but I had a few issues with it. Many of the characters are introduced right away without going into hardly any detail about them. There is also a lot going on in this film and not everything is explained right away which is sure to annoy some viewers. If you want to learn more about Fantastic Beasts check this website out.
Fantastic Beasts gets 7/10. This is a good film but it won’t be for everyone. People who have not read the books or watched the movies may have a hard time following this one. Yet I am sure kids will love it. It is definitely a film the whole family can enjoy together.
