Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Directed by: David Yates
Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, etc.
Release date: November 17, 2016
For a movie set in the world of Harry Potter and directed by David Yates who made the last 4 of those movies, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is surprisingly unengaging. It is also devoid of compelling lead characters, one of the biggest strengths of the Potterverse. The movie though does set out to entertain, and there is just about enough fun to be had to not mark it as a complete failure. Some of the actors too make the film more entertaining than it otherwise would have been.
