Fantastic Beasts 2: When greed takes the place of inspiration



It's 1927, and the story begins a few months after Newt helped discover and capture the dark wizard infamous Gellert Grindelwald. However, as he promised to do, Grindelwald made a dramatic escape and gathered more followers to his cause, raising the wizards above all non-magical beings.

The only one who could stop him is the sorcerer he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore.

Dumbledore will have to look for the help of the wizard who defeated Grindelwald once, his former student, Newt Scamander. Adventure brings Newt together with American friends Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will test their loyalty while facing new dangers in an increasingly dangerous and divided world of wizards.


The devoted fans have all the chances to have fun at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald / The Fantastic Animals: Grindelwald's crimes, although Friday's premiere is just a pale copy and a sequel to the inertia of franchise adventures now globally known as Wizarding World . Below is what we liked and what not the movie that can be seen on Friday throughout the country, including on IMAX screens and including a double version.
Yes, we all knew Warner studios desperately needed to continue the Harry Potter franchise, but if the first Fantastic Beasts movie magic and inspiration still survived the studio greed, the same thing can not be said about the sequel: with a suffocated story of dead time, devoid of inspiration and turn of the artificial situation, the premiere survives solely due to the ingenuity of the special effects.
The story begins shortly after the action of the first film. We see Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) appealing to Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to find in Paris the all-destroyer Credence (Ezra Miller), which could be the key to success in the war that the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) to declare it to ordinary mortals. Helped by his fantastic animals and hopeful friends, Newt confronts the all-powerful Grindelwald and his ever-growing army of aristocrats to prevent a race between two races and the irreversible division of the wizard's world.
The sequel works for franchise fans as it widens the Wizarding World mythology and gives details of the history of the big clans that have been fighting since the start of the Harry Potter franchise. If fans are excited to find out who is related to who and how X has arrived in the Y family, for the more relaxed spectator it is soon evident that Grindelwald's crimes have a rather small arsenal of means to impress him. In fact, with this sequel it becomes clear what the first movie was just supposed to be: The Fantastic Animals series is for Harry Potter exactly what the Hobbit was for the Lord of the Rings.

The story is hampered by some bizarre and not totally captivating decisions by J.K. Rowling, decisions that unnecessarily increase the length of the movie. For example, 15 minutes of witnessing the quest for love between queen wizard (Alison Sudol) and mortal Jacob (Dan Fogler), a secondary intrigue that does not go anywhere and does not influence the outcome.
For the attentive spectator but not concerned with the smallest details of the universe created by Rowling, the submissive message of the film is more captivating, which discusses the fact that, in an increasingly divided world, we should focus on what we approach and not on what separates us. Above this discussion the imperial Grindelwald, whose preoccupation with the supremacy of the wizards and the electrifying speech seem to be direct references to Hitler and the Holocaust. Unfortunately, beyond these aspects, it seems that the inventiveness and extraordinary energy of J.K. Rowling has also exhausted that Fantastic Beasts are nothing more than just making money.Explore similar topics:Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, J.K.
