Movie Info



Running Time




Gellert Grindelwald has escaped imprisonment and has begun gathering followers to his cause—elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one capable of putting a stop to him is the wizard he once called his closest friend, Albus Dumbledore. However, Dumbledore will need to seek help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.Wikipedia

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Reviews

Anupama Chopra
Film Companion


There are many magical things onscreen – including some wonderfully creative creatures – but the film is weighed down by its dense plot

The Crimes of Grindelwald is a build-up for fans, as JK Rowling prepares them from the great war between Grindelwald and Dumbledore. Why should you watch it? To quote Grindelwald, "Because you crave for something new."

Where Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald scores, and full marks to both JK Rowling and recurring Harry Potter director David Yates here, is in putting their imaginations on screen.

Rohan Naahar

JK Rowling’s annoying streak of making irreparable changes to her Harry Potter series breaks all limits of decency.

A low-stake, contrived story filled with futile characters and hampered by exposition makes this sequel a dull affair.

It's good to see Johnny Depp and Jude Law in J K Rowling's magical world...

However, it appears the training wheels have come off, promising that the next entry in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ saga will go full throttle into J.K. Rowling’s world of wizards. If nothing else, that's bound to ensure Potterheads will stay tuned to the franchise.

It's a story set in an adult wizarding world. Be one and go watch it.

Warner Bros and JK Rowling's attempts to capture the Young Adult Market with the Fantastic Beasts adaptation are proving to be nearly as productive a goldmine as their previous collaboration the Harry Potter series


The Crimes of Grindelwald movie review — A recycled, unambitious affair...



Overall, the film never really reaches any satisfying conclusions in any of its plot strands. Nevertheless, the film will appeal to fans of this genre.

The second of the Fantastic Beasts series is heavy on the head but easy on the eye
