A "Watchable" Film

The Guardian choose the word “watchable” to describe the upcoming film. It was said to be entertaining and watchable as expected. This could be a suitable option for Christmas event. The Guardian, however, emphasized on the misplaces of original narrative rush and novelty as the plot focus diffuses into a variety of cast.

The Audience Might Get Overwhelm

There is a noticeable number of criticisms which state that the film isn’t really interesting as it could be. While the film has so many plot twists, magical nebulae and loud noises, it has no tension and doesn’t offer audiences the feelings of an adventure. The closing episode of ‘Harry Potter’ used to face the risk of being overloaded as many plot machination were thrown. However, its audience had invested into the series intensive enough so they didn’t feel overwhelm. In facts, so many of them has grown up along with the series.

Other Reviews

Another criticism from The Verge supposes that the story need a clear protagonist as a lot of little pieces of characters cannot substitute a compelling plot with a single significant protagonist.

In addition to that, IGN has published their review with the same theme. Even though Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald is an engaging improvement of J.K. Rowling in her Wizard World, it’s not everyone who get enough attention.
