Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has more than the titular bad guy to tend to… it had the stigma of an actor playing its lead villain whose lustre had been scrapped off.  And never doubt that these kind of things can damage a film’s arrival – FBTCOG has been scorned in reviews when actually the film is (overall) pretty good.  Yes it’s not going to break any new ground and director David Yate’s dower tone does little to help pick it up, but’s its a familiar world and one that’s really nice to be back in.  So Depp aside there’s lots to like here but equally there’s also a story that makes no sense and a film that feels like it’s missing good half hour or so.  Fans will love it, haters will hate it and everyone else will think it’s okay.

Best Bit: That school looks familiar
