Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore Movie Review – Better, But….
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be released by. Pictures in Indonesia on April 13, 2022. Incidentally, the distributor provided a private screening opportunity so they could watch the film first. Honestly, at first I was hesitant when I wanted to watch the 3rd film in the series which is a spin-off from the franchisethe average film quality and entertaining. Because after going through two films in the series, there are a lot of mixed feelings that you get when watching these films.
JK Rowling’s Harry Potter Spin-Off Connects Magical Politics With Fantasy Animal World
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as the first film managed to give a lot of new things to the Wizarding World franchise which is a collaboration between the writer, JK Rowling and Warner Bros. Even so, the film is not up to parAnother Harry Potter. While The Crimes of Grindelwald , the second film in the franchise, is even considered by many critics and fans as the worst because of the many subplots that make the film feel disheveled and all over the place .
The good news for The Secrets of Dumbledore is that this film manages to take the positives from the previous two films, and reduce the bad parts. But that doesn’t mean the negative points of this 3rd Fantastic Beasts film don’t exist. Because actually there are things that will be questioned by critics or fans of Wizarding World.
Through its premise , we know that Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is a direct sequel to The Crimes of Grindelwald. The antagonist Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is looking for a way to gain the support of the international wizarding community by taking on a legendary animal he hopes can help him. Meanwhile Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) form a team to pursue Grindelwald, who forces them to travel to several countries to stop the plans of the man Dumbledore once loved.
From there, Wizarding World fans and other viewers can expect to see the political and cultural worlds of wizarding communities in other places, be introduced to new fantasy animals, and also see how the relationships between characters in this film seem to be a big focus in The film. Secrets of Dumbledore.
Many scenes and locations in this film will take the audience into the world of Wizarding World in the 1930s, which thanks to the visual effects and music will feel immersed . Every action scene looks cool and feels tense, the animals are visually more eye-catching, and also every place visited has its own characteristics.
Even so, there are some moments and scenes that may feel strange in terms of editing and visual effects. Especially the dependence of this film with slow motion scenes that seem forced, something that often happens in Fantastic Beasts films. Not to mention there are a few issues in the editing that even interfere with a moment or scene.
However, it seems that the focus of this film is not only to provide eye-catching visuals and fan service moments that make people amazed, because The Secrets of Dumbledore explores characters and relationships more , because the interaction between characters has an important role. In his international press conference, director David Yates stated that this film feels more “human”, in the sense that the personal side of each character will be more visible. And it’s true, points like the relationship between Dumbledore-Grindelwald who used to be lovers with the same vision and mission but different methods, Newt Scamander and his brother after love interestthey died in the second film, Credence who was looking for his identity, even the love story of Jacob-Queenie which had run aground in the second film turned out to be an interesting story to explore.
This film gives the audience time (albeit a little) for the audience to understand how important the relationships these characters had, and how those relationships shaped who they are today. And it seems, the Dumbledore-Grindelwald relationship is the driving force in this film.
Of course all of that can be well presented in the film because the acting of the actors and actresses is good. There doesn’t seem to be any lack of acting in this film, which may be because most of the cast have played their characters through the previous films.
Due to good acting and also the character interactions that are the focus, there are many moments between characters that may cause various kinds of emotions or certain feelings. One example is the feeling of being entertained because of funny comedy moments, and not feeling forced because it goes naturally. Therefore, you could say The Secrets of Dumbledore is the funniest Fantastic Beasts film.
And speaking of acting, for those of you who are curious about Mads Mikkelsen’s acting as Gellert Grindelwald, the quality of his performance as the main antagonist is really visible. However, some people may feel that there is a difference in the characterization style of Grindelwald, which was previously played by Johnny Depp.
The difference in Grindelwald’s characterization is one of the few things that are inconsistencies that occur in this film. An example is Grindelwald’s view of muggles (ordinary humans who are not wizards) that seem different than in the previous film. Other things such as character motivation, the way magic works, and values or social norms in Wizarding World are also felt, a complaint that some people may understand since the previous Harry Potter films. That said, maybe this will only be caught by those who really follow Fantastic Beasts and the Wizarding World as a whole.
In addition, the problems that existed in the previous Fantastic Beasts films, which later became worse in the second film, reappeared. The problem is that there are many subplots and make the story in this film out of focus. It seems that the problems faced by the characters in The Secrets of Dumbledore and other Fantastic Beasts films are made as if they are complex for the sake of complexity . Unfortunately, some of the subplots brought from the previous film or those recently shown in this film were not wrapped up satisfactorily (because there are still other sequels ).
Although it has negative points that can interfere with the audience’s enjoyment , those who see Fantastic Beasts aswill be satisfied. Fortunately, The Secrets of Dumbledore has more positive points than negatives. And it’s safe to say , The Secrets of Dumbledore is a good improvement for the Fantastic Beasts series.
