Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3 Movie Review

Variety "Devotees will likely adore the various revelations in store (...) [The screenplay] feels far more focused [than in 'The Crimes of Grindelwald']"

The Playlist"It can be said, with some certainty, that 'Fantastic Beasts' has finally found its footing. This latest entry is the most fun and most buoyant in the relatively young series.

The Guardian"It’s good-natured entertainment, though there is still something weightless and formless about the narrative (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"

USA Today"There's a renewed emphasis on magical creatures and another decidedly political bent to the franchise as it digs into dark themes and offers a bewitching goofy side (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)"

Screen Rant"[It] is a step in the right direction for this meandering franchise, though it still has a lot of work ahead (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 5)

Deadline"It’s the Wizarding World. It’s fun to be there, along with the lovely beasts. The fans love it. And perhaps that’s enough. More than enough, all round."

Empire"[It] doesn't quite cast a Potter-like spell —but with solid action and moments of genuine heart, it delivers a little light in the Wizarding World's darkest hour (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"

"The plotting [is] convoluted and the runtime rambling (...) Go see this one at the cinema where the big screen and sound will wrap you in a warm, magical duvet of delight (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"

Slant"As a smoothly built action flick, this enterprise is endearingly perky, but as a meaningful contribution from Rowling to the Harry Potter universe, well, 10 points from Slytherin (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 4)"

Total Film"Polished prequel could use a shake-up (...) Despite the well-honed wizarding credentials of Yates and co-scripters Steve Kloves and Rowling, the series still can't seem to settle on a hero (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"

SlashFilm"'Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore' has the most competent story yet, even if it's missing some crucial details to properly flesh out new elements of the wizarding world

Den of Geek"[It] overstuffs the Wizarding World with too much information (...) [It] perfectly polishes a happy conclusion for the magizoologist and his colleagues, so if [it] marked the end, it would be enough (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"

IndieWire"[It] falls into precisely the same traps as its predecessor, offering up an unwieldy, mostly unsettling mash-up of adult themes and childish whimsy" 

The Hollywood Reporter"Even a more refined plot can’t save the two-hour-plus film from feeling like an endurance test.

IGN"While [it] finally makes Dumbledore canonically gay, it does little else of note, remaining scattered across half a dozen inconsequential subplots for most of its runtime."

The Wrap"There’s little magic left in this sagging franchise. This latest entry abandons any plot points of interest from the previous two chapters, focusing instead on shocking reveals that are anything but" 

Thanks for watch
