Moreover, his first film, which was released two years ago, was quite successful. And received a standing ovation from the Potterheads.
But, unfortunately, so far, the response from critics, who have watched Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald during its gala premiere, has not been as good as the first film. The visualization is indeed very entertaining. However, even so, the plot is considered too complicated. And the story is not strong enough.

The story of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald feels long-winded and confusing. Doesn’t fit the main story. The film, made by director David Yates, is considered only to prepare the audience for his third film. Which, the plan, will be released in 2020.
In addition, the figure of Gellert Grindelwald, who is the main selling point, also feels less strong. The character is not as big as his name which is emblazoned on the title of the film. The energy or charisma of Johhny Depp doesn’t seem to appear in this Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie.

In fact, visually, Gellert Grindelwald is very potential. With his pair of brown and white eyes, as well as his white hair and eyebrows, he looked very mysterious. Plus, with his soul feeling as icy cold as it should be, Grindelwald could make a really great supervillain. In the end, though, he just looks like another version of You-Know-Who in the Harry Potter franchise. Which only appeared at a glance.
However, even though it’s not as good as the first film, it doesn’t mean Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald isn’t worth watching. Director David Yates is considered still able to present a magnificent world of magic. Through a special effects game that spoils the eyes. Although the nuances seem dark, Yates is able to mix it beautifully. Which is then enriched by various magical creatures and objects. Plus the appearance of a witch-style costume designed by Colleen Atwood. Which does look very stylish.
Disney has released another fantasy film. Which has become their specialty film genre so far. Title: The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. The story of this film is adapted from a classic short story. It’s called The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. By German author ETA Hoffmann. Issued in 1816.

Once, on Christmas Eve, Clara got a present. Inheritance from his late mother: Marie (Anna Madeley). Who is the main character in the original short story The Nutcracker. The prize is an egg-shaped music box. Which contains priceless secrets. Which can only be opened using a special key. Clara was busy looking for the key.
