There are aspects I liked and aspects I didn't. All of the spells and sorcerery and all of the creatures were a delight to watch. Some really funny moments, well written, lovely cinematography.
But I personally find Eddie Redmayne to be a really awkward actor, uncomfortable to watch, in all his films. Always babbling and stuttering, an awkward gait, never looking anyone in the eye.
As for the Credence/Modesty/Graves subplot, I just found that to be plain weird and the Obscurus was just a ludicrous and over the top.
Johnny Depp, go away.
It might take some time to get used to the whole wizardry world again, it doesn't have as much of a build up as the Harry Potter series had, but once you're in, it's really great. The 3D effects are nice, but sometimes instead of sucking you into the movie they kinda pull you out with the way they handled them, but that might differ per cinema and personal preference.
Really bad, Americanized version of Harry Potter. It is like most of the spin-offs or remakes made with Hollywood culture instead of the original. The HP series was brilliant but than the fame kicked in so after Goblet of fire J.K.Rowling said: "Okay, lets involve American characters in the HP universe", and that's when we got this. :( The movie doesn't know what it actually wants and you have a little bit of everything. The characters are really pointless and unlikable even Eddie Redmayne :(. and the movie tries too hard in that aspect. The fight with the bad guy in the end was so bad that when the lights come on in the theater you tell yourself "this can't be it". I am so sad i didn't like this movie. As someone said, hopefully the next parts will be better.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
